Radak: I like how the first section is fairly specific about who can donate, until it gets to this part:They'll also ask you a few basic questions about your health and lifestyle.Trying to skirt around something there, are we?
Hardy-r-r: Also - they SELL your blood to hospitals. It's not free to them. Ave. = $300.00. Blood is a commodity with it's own market.
capt.hollister: I'm a relatively rare AB+ and I use to give blood long ago.Unfortunately, ever since mad cow disease struck Europe I've been barred from giving blood anywhere in Québec. According to Héma-Québec's guidelines, I have spent too much time in the UK and too much time in continental Europe.Apparently, the risk that I will turn into a mad cow (or mad bull, in my case) is just too high.
Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: I'm Type O-. It's highly encouraged I donate, as it's useful to everyone.Sucks though, because I can only receive Type O- back. Seems a little unfair, like I'm a superhero who everyone despises.
cynicalbastard: Oddly enough, they do not directly mention buttsex. You're asked if- that is, if you're a guy, you have had sex with another guy at any time since Saturday Night Fever came out, if you've ever been in prison or belonged to a HS Glee Club (ok, just kidding about the ladder), or if- regardless of gender, you've been in the sack with someone who has done the above. No mention of actual activities is made- not buttsex, rusty trombones, Cleveland Steamers, the Halifax Heimlich, the Naughty Nun, nothin'.Now, if you're a straight guy, you could've been doing buttsex marathons non-stop in a Peurto Rican cathouse for six months, but as long as it was over a year ago and as far as you know, no transformers were involved, you're good to go.
