You put your right hand out...give a firm hand-shake
Talk to me about the one big break..
Spread the ear pollution both far and wide...
Keep your contributions by your side and stroke me, stroke me..

Type O is not a universal donor. Type O - is the universal donor, and that is a much, much smaller segment of the population than Type O at large.

/type O -

Not shocking, knowing that Japanese scientists have already proven how blood type affects personality.

I was confused then I realised you didn`t mean type O - you meant type O-.

I suspect it was a typo

I would have thought gender determined how likely you were to stroke.

And even then, it's waaaaaay more complicated than the ABO and Rh +/- would suggest. Those are just two of like 30 different variables.

But yes, if you're O-, the blood bank calls you like a week before you're even eligible to donate again to start badgering you to get scheduled for the milisecond you're allowed to donate again.

I've gotten calls the week after I've donated to donate again. In fairness, it was a different region.
