How do I get a poop transplant to deal with obesity and type II? Presumably this will clear my stress hormones too.

Since it's a pretty new thing, I imagine you'd either have to join a trial, or find a back-alley donor.

Um, wouldn't that be a "back-door" donor? This is Slashdot, and we must be precise..

i switched from 5 or 6 cokes a day, to 5 or 6 beers per day.. my weight hasn't changed at all -- but i feel MUCH better. Go figure, right?

And Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie, to who pretty much everyone in the tech field owes something. Including Steve Jobs, too. They passed away with just a few days of difference. There wasn't worldwide candle lighting events for Ritchie.
