Zodiac Signs Which Are the Most Difficult to Love

 

 

 

 

 

Heartbreak and love is written in the stars. No, seriously, your zodiac star can be the reason why you’re facing so much difficulty. If you weren’t aware of this fact earlier, it’s time to start paying attention now since your love life is on the line. So it’s time to turn away from your heartbreak by becoming a little wiser. The following are the most difficult zodiac signs to love listed from most to least difficult to love.
Gemini
Why? Because they’re two-faced, that’s why. They’re known for their fickleness. Their high intelligence means they need someone who is their intellectual equal. Yet they’re also emotionally immature so cheating or ghosting on someone doesn’t appear like a big deal to them.
Scorpio
A sign that is renowned for not knowing what they want. They also give mixed signals which drive them and others around them crazy. The need a lot of room to grow emotionally but until that happens, they are emotionally draining and can be really taxing to deal with.
Libra
Another sign that is indecisive is Libra. Just like the scale, they take the time to weigh the pros and cons of a situation. Unfortunately, you never know what can tip the scale over. They can also be rather selfish; focusing more on their own gratification in a callous manner.
Virgo
Independent and self-assured, Virgos are very well spoken but their sense of entitlement tends to get the better of them at times. They can be very demanding from a person and tend to be as emotionally draining as a Scorpio. Patience is definitely a virtue here.
Sagittarius
Sagittarius love excitement which makes them very fun partners but their need to be on the move makes them hesitant to commit. Sagittarius needs someone that runs beside them instead of behind them. However, not everyone can keep up and they’re not afraid to leave them behind.
Aquarius
Private and reserved, the lack of communication can prove to be a problem. Aquarius is naturally not inclined to let people in, even when the right person is in front of them. Being with them can require a lot of patience but when they finally let you in, it’s worth it.
Capricorn
The money making star, Capricorn can become too caught up in work. They’re notorious workaholics and usually weigh the pros and cons of any situation. However, their tendency to be so practical can often extinguish the spark in the relationship.
Leo
Confident, independent and self-assured, Leo’s are hard not to fall for. The fact that they love engaging everyone and being inclusive makes them all the more appealing. Unfortunately, the independence of this sign makes it difficult for one to reach a deeper connection with them.
Aries
The perfect partner in crime is Aries. They’re very committed to their partners and will be the perfect person to lean on. It’s hard not to feel special with an Aries around but if you don’t reciprocate in a similar manner, they can become resentful easily too.
Pisces
Soft hearted, Pisces love the drama of romance. Think candle light dinners and roses. They’re also more than happy to share what is one their mind and in their hearts. However, this tendency to love drama also means they can make some serious drama too.
Cancer
Rather shy, Cancer’s tend to wear their hearts on their sleeves and tend to idolize the people they fall in love with. They’re naturally nurturing, attentive and very patient with a person’s shortcomings. However, when reality hits, they’re also pretty quick at abandoning their idols too.
Taurus
Love for a Taurus has no grey areas. They’re either all in or not. They’re also known for their steady nature and always build relationships on foundations that last. Unfortunately, they’re notoriously bull-headed so it can be an uphill battle to make a Taurus see your point of view.
Disastrous Combinations – Leo and Capricorn
A Capricorn’s practical nature will become grating for the larger than life Leo. They tend to live in the moment while Capricorn will tend to pace them and make them think of the future. The thrifty and cautious nature will begin to grate on a Leo.
Disastrous Combinations – Gemini and Pisces
The Gemini’s fickleness and carelessness is magnified in this combination since Pisces are sensitive and soft hearted. While Pisces is brooding and moody, Gemini simply tends to crack a few more jokes to lighten the mood, unwittingly adding more fuel to the fire in this situation.
Disastrous Combinations – Scorpio and Aquarius
Since they’re so shy yet independent, both signs face a communication gap between them. This can draw out Scorpio’s possessiveness and jealousy while Aquarius might find Scorpio’s possessiveness suffocating and make a run for it.

WORLD’S FIRST HUMAN HEAD TRANSPLANT WILL TAKE PLACE IN DECEMBER

 

 

 

 

 

Last year, Dr. Sergio Canavero created quite the ruckus (to put it mildly) when he vowed to be the first person to transplant a human head onto a deceased donor’s body. Yes, he is planning on attempting the world’s first human head transplant (or body transplant, depending on how you look at it).

In fact, it has been about a year since his initial proclamation, and the Italian neurosurgeon still stands firm on his declaration, despite claims from other experts that it is nothing but a PR Stunt (at best) or a  hoax. Some have even hypothesized it’s all just a plot meant to promote Metal Gear Solid.

This last claim is due to the doctor’s uncanny resemblance to one of the game’s main characters (it must be noted that there is scant evidence to actually support this hypothesis beyond this).

Honestly, it has been a story full of drama and sensationalist publicity. This whole mess went so far that talks of lawsuits were flying all over the place. But Canavero stands firm, insisting that the attempt must be made at some point. So, why not now? “Of course there will be ideas that crater. The history of mankind is trial and error. But we have to be dreamers. If you don’t dream, you’re not going anywhere. You might call me a bit crazy. A kook. I am! You have to be if you want to change everything,” he said in an interview with The Guardian.

Canavero continued by asserting that such daring enterprises are part and parcel of scientific exploration. Society’s job, according to him, has always been “to tease apart the kooks from the super-kooks. And maybe you can only know that after the caper.”

At the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons last year, Canavero tried to recruit US surgeons to join his head transplant team. And now, it seems that he is actually moving forward with this work. He says he has assembled a team of surgeons from China, South Korea, and Russia. All they are waiting for is approval and, well, money.

His collaborator, Dr Xiaoping Ren of China’s Harbin Medical University, claims that he was able to successfully transplant the head of a monkey onto another monkey in January, but that it had to be euthanized for “ethical reasons” 20 hours after. Yet notably, the spinal cord wasn’t actually attached (which raises significant questions about the viability of such an operation on a human).

Although a lot of attention centered on Russian volunteer Valery Spiridonov, who suffers from a Werdnig-Hoffman disease, Canavero now clarifies that the first patient to undergo the head transplant will be a Chinese patient.

“We’re looking at a date around Christmas 2017 to perform the transplant in China. The Chinese team has already experimented on human cadavers to hone the technology,” Dr. Canavero revealed.

Heaven? Probably Not.

Many argue (a majority of scientists working in this field) that a head transplant is currently impossible, despite advancements dealing with spinal cord problems. Recently, we covered how scientists were able to regenerate spinal cord axons, but even that procedure takes a lot of time, and it is a very recent development…one that is probably not a part of Canavero’s plan.

Most say that the surgery will end in death. Others note that it may actually result in something far worse than death, as the difference in brain chemistry could overwhelm the patient and cause a level of insanity never before seen.

Canavero calls the procedure the “head anastomosis venture,” code-named “HEAVEN.” But is it? It may lead to new knowledge and information, but as other experts note, it will likely also lead to the patient’s death and (very possibly) no information that we couldn’t obtain through working on cadavers.
