WATCH THE ENTIRE SERIES ON VBSTV *******www.vbs.tv/motherboard Robert J. White is the groundbreaking surgeon who in the mid-1970s--against all odds--pioneered the monkey head transplant, forever changing the face of monkey ownership as we know it. Wait, what's that? Your monkey still has its original head? Wow. Get with the program, chief. But Dr. White's work isn't merely limited to lopping the heads of macaques. He's also performed head transplants on dogs. Even more also, however, he's spent the past half a century exploring the way the brain functions and trying to figure out a way to preserve neurological consciousness when the rest of the body craps out. He is pretty much our favorite real-life mad scientist, and may know more about the rough mechanics of the nervous system than anybody else in his field, AND he was the Pope's personal adviser on bioethics. The Pope! So we decided to visit him at the suburban McDonalds he works out of to pick his brain about picking other people's brains. And monkeys'. For more of Robert J. White's work check out the Dell Lounge! - *******www.delllounge****

FOLLOW THE SERIES: *******www.vbs.tv/northkorea/ Getting into North Korea was one of the hardest and weirdest processes VBS has ever dealt with. After we went back and forth with their representatives for months, they finally said they were going to allow 16 journalists into the country to cover the Arirang Mass Games in Pyongyang. Then, ten days before we were supposed to go, they said, "No, nobody can come." Then they said, "OK, OK, you can come. But only as tourists." We had no idea what that was supposed to mean. They already knew we were journalists, and over there if you get caught being a journalist when you're supposed to be a tourist you go to jail. We don't like jail. And we're willing to bet we'd hate jail in North Korea.

In the interview Ross endorses Obama for president as well as endorsing Obam's right to cheat on his wife on the road, cause a man is a man. He also says people should lighten about HGH, that home runs save baseball, that Roger Clemens is a hero, and Andy Pettitte is no friend for ratting Clemens out. Oh and Rick Ross likes fish sandwiches.

SEE MORE- *******www.vbs.tv/hishredability/ ***** The Pipemasters started back in the ’70s with a card table on the beach, six guys in the water, and a $1,000 first prize. Tiny as it was, there was media, drama, and skepticism right from the start. Corky told Jerry the contest wasn’t going on because the waves sucked. So Jerry (hands down the best guy) went home. They ran the event anyway, and Jerry ended up watching it live on Wide World of Sports. The Banzai Pipeline is one of the most intense waves in the world. And, as it is the last contest of the World Championship Tour’s season, a lot of people’s careers are made and broken right here. From world-title decisions to who qualifies for next season’s tour—a lot of d**k can go down here on the beach.

SEE MORE: *******www.vbs.tv/video.php?id=146076309 ****************** From the host Jesse Pearson: I just got back from four days at a firearms training institute in the vicious heat of the Nevada desert, where I learned how to shoot a Glock handgun better, faster, and with more accuracy than probably anybody you know. I learned how to clear malfunctions and fix jams. I learned how to do tactical and emergency reloads. I learned how to shoot at night, with a flashlight in my left hand and a gun in my right, each braced against the other. I did live fire action simulators where I stormed through fake houses, pretending that I was the victim of a home invasion, shooting the shit out of a lot of paper targets. I learned how to discharge my firearm while kneeling. I learned how to shoot from a concealed holster. I learned that the way to put someone down, really, is to place two shots in their thoracic cavity and then, if they are still coming, send one coup de grace to a little box on the human face that’s framed by the eyebrows and the upper lip. www.VBS.tv

STARTS April 7th on www.VBS.tv Follow the show here: *******www.vbs.tv/shows/toxic/garbage-island/ For years we’ve been reading about a patch of garbage the size of Texas floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, ingeniously dubbed the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Basically, any trash that gets dumped in the water rides the currents to this one spot and joins an ever-increasing flotilla of crap. For all the breathless accounts of the mess and its impact on the area’s sealife, however, no one seemed to have a picture of the buildup. In order to sate our own curiosity, VBS joined the crew of a research vessel studying the trash and sailed out into one of the most remote spots of open water in the world, the North Pacific Gyre, in search of this mythical garbage island. What we discovered once we got there was an ecological disaster beyond any of our expectations and possibly the single worst thing human beings have done to the planet and ourselves. Hope you’re into cancer and sex-reversal!

PART 2 - *******www.vbs.tv/video.php?id=1389983290 THE CUTE SHOWCAT CHAMPIONS! Part 1 of 2 The 2007 CFA finals at Madison Square Gardens in New York. What does CFA stand for? Why, Cat Fanciers Association of course. From Host Amy Kellner: We went to the CFA-IAMS Cat Championship at Madsion Square Garden and yes, it was a dream come true. Ironically, I am allergic to cats, and my nose was pretty much sealed shut after five minutes of being there—but wow, was it worth it. Wall-to-wall beautiful cats and the crazy people who love them as far as the eye could see… This is like the biggest thing that’s ever happened to The Cute Show and it’s going to be a two-parter. Here is part one of the excitement, and keep your eyes peeled for a special cameo from a member of one of my all-time favorite bands! Cute Show’s got cool cred, man! xo amy www.VBS.tv
