In news that is so weird, you almost won't believe it, a Russian man has volunteered to be the victim for the world's first head transplant, which two doctors want to perform early next year. Valery Spiridonov -- a 31-year-old Russian man who operates an educational software company out of his home in the small city of Vladimir, Russia -- suffers from Werdnig-Hoffmann disease, which confines him to a wheelchair. The disease is genetic and usually fatal, a disorder "that wastes away muscles and kills motor neurons -- nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that help move the body."
