HEART TRANSPLANT DONORS

An elderly patient needed a heart transplant and discussed his options with his doctor.

The doctor said, "We have three possible donors; tell me which one you want to use. One is a young, healthy athlete who died in an automobile accident. The second is a middle-aged businessman who never drank or smoked and who died in his private plane. The third is a managed care executive who just died after working for 30 years."

"I´ll take the MCO executive´s heart," said the patient.

After a successful transplant, the doctor asked the patient why he had chosen the donor he did.

"It was easy," the patient replied. "I wanted a heart that hadn´t been used."

Oscar-Winning Movies: Surprising Films You Forgot Actually Won

Crash

An ensemble film with interweaving stories of race and social tension in Los Angeles, Crash pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Academy Awards history when it beat Brokeback Mountain for Best Picture in 2006. Ang Lee’s romantic drama between two cowboys was a front-runner for the Oscar that year. While the filmmaker would take the statue for Best Director, increased recognition for Crash leading up to the Oscars gave the film added momentum to land the top prize. The win still remains controversial, as some critics felt Academy voters weren’t ready to award a mainstream movie featuring gay romance.
