No kidding, hope he does good this time around. He looked thinner than the runway models for a while.

I heard he rejected the first two livers, threw one against a wall, fired the anaesthetic technician and made three surgeons cry. Then he demanded his stitches be invisible and that the liver should be hot-swappable.

I thought the liver was not user-replaceable?

Larry Hagman went 9 years in 1995. Had some of the transplanted liver removed on 2004, and is still going strong today. So, "on average" is a large unknown in these cases. Given the resources these people have (please, no average Joe arguments. He who has the Gold makes the Rules) I can see Steve being around for quite a while.

IMO the Wall St Rag sat on this until yesterday intentionally. I'll bet Walt is not feeling any pride over his employer on the timing of this.

Thank goodness we have so many other online resources to receive our business news other than the Wall St Rag.

Survival rate for liver transplants is about 75%.

I'm sure the analysts / shareholder's are not gonna like that 25% chance
