I believe I heard a story about a man with 3 kidneys. What if a person had 4 or 
5 kidneys or an extra liver? What would the effects on the body be? Would the 
blood be a little cleaner? Would it be impossible to get drunk? Now what if the 
person was perfectly healthy and for some reason some one cut them open and 
transplanted a liver into them. Would that be a fatal mistake?
