"Fate, it would seem, has played a cruel joke with Colonel Guile. One of his signature and most fearsome attack moves, the "Sonic Boom" became the reason for his complete loss of hearing. As a result of that Guile got discharged from the Air Force. And to make matters worse, during the process of the medical exam, overflown with emotions, he lost control over his temper and knocked a military official into a permanent coma. For that reason he got discharged with dishonor and lost all his privileges as a veteran officer. After doing two years in prison, his life went downhill. At this point all we know about him is that he is smuggling illegal immigrants over the border somewhere between Mexico and the state of Texas."

How the treatment worked:

1) One of the patient's two olfactory bulbs was removed and the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) were grown in culture

2) 100 micro injections of OECs were made above and below the damaged area of the spinal cord

3) Four strips of nerve tissue were placed across an 8mm gap in the spinal cord. The scientists believe the OECs acted as a pathway to stimulate the spinal cord cells to regenerate, using the nerve grafts as a bridge to cross the severed cord



Via BBC:

Darek Fidyka, who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.

The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London.

Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.

In a shocking piece of not-news that's rocking the waves of the celeb internet today, Renee Zellweger is revealed to be both: 1. A Real Human Being who occasionally ages like Real Human Beings Do and 2. A Grown Adult Woman who probably had some work done on her face.

In the wake of these startling revelations, we will provide a reproduction of the poster to the hit film Bridget Jones's Diary for reference:



With this new piece of evidence we can finally confirm that MAYBE American Hollywood Celeb-dom has a way of pressuring women into single archetypes of faces and looks, discouraging them from ever aging or changing. More on the story as it develops.

The Kid With the Sweet LED Costume is Back This Year With Another Luminescent Getup

There are costumes that are scary, costumes that suck, and costumes that are just plain cool. This would fall squarely in the "plain cool" category. Last year, Glowy Zoey lit up the night with her stick figure costume, and now she's rocking a rainbow Minnie Mouse motif.

Deadmau5 would be proud.
