It's like playing Whack a Mole. It's an entirely senseless and pointless game but for some reason, it strikes us at our core and it's just plain fun. You get to sit there and whack the hell out of the little critters and you don't get in trouble for it.
In this case, rooob poked his little head up and we get to take some nice whacks.
And increase your chances of contracting HIV by 300%!
What a completely idiotic and potentially harmful statement. Joking or not it's neither funny or appropriate.
THERE IS 0% RISK OF CONTRACTING HIV BY DONATING BLOOD OR BLOOD PARTS.
Nobody should be afraid to donate blood at a registered, legitimate blood donation center. For blood plasma, it's pretty easy. I used to donate plasma and blood for free at my work. They usually give you some free juice and food too to help balance a slight sugar loss. Donating blood saves lives. Ask anyone who works in healthcare how critical it is.
once or twice a week at $20 a throw is not going be enough to pay your rent or support a family. It is probably not even minimum wage when all is told.entire medical history to them
It may not be enough to pay your rent or support a family but it is enough to put gas in your car and buy groceries. I did this last year when I was not working and I received $25 for the 1st time in a week and $35 for the 2nd time in the same week and an add'l $10 on the 5th donation of the month which comes out to $250 for the month and takes less than an hour to donate the plasma.
Donate because you want to, not for the money. You can donate blood about every six weeks. I do it just to help out others. People going through chemo and with blood disorders need this to stay alive. There is tremendous cost involved in testing and typing the donations. Most don't realize how much those that are sick need this and how much they need over time. The payback for me is that I know I am helping someone else. I would never accept a cent for donating.
if accepting money for donating would make you feel bad, give it to me. I have no problem with it.
I would be more concerned about using a cell phone long term than donating.
Oh come on now, no study has ever definitively shown digital cell phones to be harmful. In fact, many studies have shown that the waves can barely penetrate skin (try putting your hand over the antenna area of a cell phone) and generally just turn innocuously into heat.
On the other hand, there is definitely a legitimate risk involved in "donating" (selling, really) plasma. Much moreso than donating blood. They are pumping your blood out and pumping back in the red blood cells. There is a very legitimate risk of a *very* serious infection from this, especially if the machines are not properly cared for in every way (and even if they are). Donating blood is considerably safer due to the fact that they are not pumping anything back into you, but infections can still happen there too.
I've been doing this for years. It's how most college kids pay rent in many places.
OP, you're post is wrong.
You get $20 for the first visit and $30 for the second (per week). You cannot donate two consecutive days and you must wait between visits.It's 2 visits/10 days, or 6/month.
Like I said, I've been doing this for years at my BioLife. Your second visit each time wheels in $10 more. So it's $50/week if you go twice. Totals $200/month. If the rates suddenly changed, it was unknown to BioLife in WI.
But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?
