Ah, the old college drinking game. Donate blood, get hammered on 2 beers later that day.

My father-in-law (by the name of Ed Sullivan, if you can believe it) told of after the three times my mother-in-law gave birth, he'd sneak a can or two of Guinness into the maternity ward. It's supposed to replenish iron and other nutrients/minerals. I don't know how medically sound this actually was, but it was an old Irish remedy.

It kinda depends on who drinks it.

That was the old Irish remedy for anything. Rickets, gangrene, cancer, mumps, broken arm, torn ACL, smallpox, drink Guinness.

Vampirism down?  So they've taken a crime out of bite?

The vouchers are not redeemable the same day you donate blood.

I'm left wondering how anyone would know. I mean, do the bartenders ask you to roll up your sleeve so they look for the gauze and tape? Demand to see your donation card?

Does the Red Cross even do donation cards anymore or is it all computerized?

In the Army, you could get time off to give blood.  It usually took the whole day cause waiting and those guys couldn't find a vein and then they make you wait longer cause you look woozy.  At 1630, hit the club for a beer or two or three.

I seem to recall that the Guinness brewery in Dublin has an exhibit with all their old ads, and visitors can take photos of themselves pretending to hold up a large I-beam like that.

Could have done "down by up to at least 80%" to get that fifth preposition

A date stamp on a voucher would be enough, I would think.

Or maybe the vouchers have a "valid from" date printed om them, or something else simple.

I can do that already without donating blood which is why I don't do either. Living at 9000ft, you need every red blood cell you can scrounge just to get out of bed.

I visited the brewery in 2019, and I remember seeing the exhibit, but not the I-beam specifically.

I later found out that while that specific location in downtown Dublin is the original brewery, the Guinness company moved all brewing operations to other breweries on the periphery of the metropolitan area, and the original brewery is basically a museum at this point.

*grumpy bear* They won't let me donate blood for booze

Why is this even a thing? Blood banks save lives. Lives are sacred. Your bodily autonomy is meaningless if live is being preserved. The state should compel blood donations as needed... particularly of rare blood types.

Why have republicans not introduce laws to make this happen?

Huh, I was also there in 2019. Guess I just missed you.

Sure, they still brew beer on site - and if my sources are right, much more than they used to. Over the last 20 years they've consolidated their operations from smaller breweries that they closed in London, Dundalk, and Kilkenny (you bastards!), and expanded their production capacity at St James Gate.

All I remember is that the place smelled wonderful.

I have a good friend who donates the double-amount every time he's allowed... and always picks up two pints of IPA on the way home to relish the extra buzz.
