2012-05-01 12:12:08 PM  
Where do they expect me to put my organ in this computer?
 
2012-05-01 12:12:20 PM  
you can have my organs when you take them from my cold dead body.

I thought Tweeting your organ was a surefire way to get embarrassed out of office.

I don't see how posting it on Facebook would be better.
 
2012-05-01 12:15:12 PM  
So now I'll know who to take out on my quest for new kidneys..

Want to know how to increase organ donations? Make the shiat opt-out instead of opt-in. That way, if you really give two shiats, you can make sure you keep your soon-to-be rotting corpse whole.

/organ donor
//dead people don't need organs

Not if you're going to give it to an asshat like Dick Cheney!

Futz that.

If doctors need transplant parts they can either learn to grow them in the lab or have them ripped out of their loved ones like what happened to me (Long story short: Love of my life needed a liver transplant, she didn't get one. After she passed on, doctors stuck a donor sticker on her driver's license and 'harvested' her of anything useful).

They'll end up with an abundance of duck faces to graft on to future generations.

I've got an organ I will donate to Zukerberg's GF...
 
2012-05-01 01:18:57 PM  
Sorry, if you're not going to pay me for them, I'll be keeping them, thankyouverymuch. My blood as well. I've seen the in-farking-credible amount they charge for saving a life. Meanwhile, they want your part in the process to be "charity", presumably so they can maximize their own profit, ignoring the fact that, without your internal organs, they don't make a thin dime. Greedy farks.

I've said this before and I'll say it again:

Once I'm dead, I'm done with this body. It's served me well but I'm not in there anymore. I don't want it. Someone else does.

Give my lungs to a middle-aged man so he can have his breath taken away by the first sight of his grandchildren. Transplant my heart into a teenager so she can have it broken by her first crush. Give my corneas away and let them see another sunrise over the water. Use my skin for grafts and feel the tough of someone else's gentle hands. Take my kidneys out to the pub and have a drink on me.

Hang up my skeleton in a school and educate the next generation of doctors.

Give anything you can give away away -- there's a kid waiting for a spleen, and I'm sure they know more about what it does than most doctors. Happy birthday kid, I'm sorry I couldn't wrap it.

Take what's left, burn it, and use it to fertilize an apple tree. Bake me a pie and serve it warm.

The way to make organs as plentiful as any other item is right in front of our faces. Quit begging/shaming people to "donate". Pay them a fair price. Capitalism works.

And you're right- each and every step along that supply chain makes a -very- tidy profit, except for one, the very step without which none of it would be possible.

I think a lot of people might be inclined to posthumously sell their organs, if it would mean a little bit more they can pass on to their families. As it is now, with the "charity" method, we have shortages and death- primarily so that people can feel so good and smug about themselves for being donors. -That- is the true definition of greed- willing to sacrifice the lives of others for the sake of your own ego.

Amen. I've told my hubby a number of times, "If I go first, make sure they harvest every viable part of me. I won't need 'em."

What's ironic; the fact that he's enforcing the Golden Rule instead of just abiding by it??

Long story made long again.

We had the insurance, but the doctors decided that because of her 'lifestyle' (took too many Tylenol) she was disqualified from getting a liver transplant. A this same time, in the same ward, a famous musician was getting his THIRD liver and a hasbeen 1960's comedian was getting his SECOND liver.

I'm okay with this, as long as I don't have to switch to timeline to do it.
 
2012-05-01 05:20:56 PM  
Well they are welcome to have em but Im warning them 37 years of abusing my body and Im sure they arent in the greatest of shape.
 
2012-05-01 05:38:19 PM  
Fine I'll post my status as Organ Donor.

Just remember my license specifically states "NO ORGAN DONATIONS"

so everything else on facebook is a lie
just remember that when i duct tape my child
 
2012-05-01 05:45:08 PM  
You just have to be careful because the "donate kidney" button is right next to the "like" button.
 
2012-05-02 12:23:36 AM  
Well it's not like Facebook knows where you live, or anything about your lifestyle, or personal habits, so it's not like they can use that information to secretly put you on an organ harvest watchlist or anything.
