Stopped a rape, ****** , and possible serial killing spree.

Like I do every day while I'm on the computer.

mfw you actually get paid to donate blood in America. In Europe, the only reward is "knowing you did something good".
User avatar #104 to #96 - brisineo (03/19/2013) [-]
You also can donate blood plasma here. It's better than just donating straight blood because you can do it up to twice a week. $25-$30 a pop.

Heck, they make contests at the donation center that give away prizes, restaurant meals, or extra cash for getting other people to donate or donating a certain amount of times.

So any healthy adult can do that? No drawbacks except from temporary light-headedness? 50 bucks a week?
User avatar #109 to #107 - brisineo (03/19/2013) [-]
Pretty much. Exception being eating a large, high-protein meal, and drinking a lot of water before going, or else you might have some adverse (but rare) side effects like passing out, dizziness, convulsions, and seizures resulting from severe dehydration, but that's usually the donor's fault for not preparing.

The process to get you into the system is a pain (takes about 3-5 hours) but then after it's usually just about an hour of your time. They're more lenient with plasma donors than blood donors too, because I can't donate blood. (You can't, however, drink alcohol or caffeine 24 hours after donating, their a bit more strict with smokers, and heavy druggies are out entirely)

If you get paid to donate blood then that's not donating. That's just selling your blood.
User avatar #102 to #101 - nitupsar (03/19/2013) [-]
true. i heard you can get as much as 30 dollars in one sitting though?
User avatar #103 to #102 - laspussy (03/19/2013) [-]
Depends where you sell your blood. I've never sold my blood before , I've only donated it. If I were O- then I would sell it but alas I'm O+ and can only give my blood to half the world.

Well in my country you kinda get paid, you get some sort of "food tickets".

yea, they say it's because of an elevated risk of HIV in the homosexual community. And since the virus can incubate and be undetectable for up to six months...better safe than sorry I suppose.

There's an elevated risk of HIV in all sexually active communities. They should only take blood from WoW players.

Story time, kids, scroll on by if not interested.

I used to donate plasma regularly, twice a week. Religiously. Did it all the time. Until one day when, underestimating how sick I was, went to donate while I had the flu.

Yeah, I ended up vomiting. Now, because they are liable for my safety while I'm in their building, they go on full alert, and keep on feeding me food because I "need nutrients in my system." I keep vomiting these "nutrients" right back up.

So, then they get worried about my hydration level. The obvious solution? Pumping me full of room-temperature saline solution. Now, room temperature may not seem so bad, and it didn't to me, until I remembered that my body's normal internal temperature is 98.6 degrees. I was freezing. Not to mention that no one in the entire building had a blanket, because they didn't consider that saline injections are really ******* cold.

Finally, after three hours of vomiting, saline injections, and pure discomfort, they decide to call in the ambulance. Now, I'm an EMT, and I know how much a simple ride in an ambulance costs, and I'm not certain if my insurance will cover it, so I politely decline. I've been sick like this before, and I know that what I need to do is go home, take some Pepto, and sleep it off. They decline, saying I shouldn't go against their "medical advice," (by the way, no one in that building had a doctorate) and that the healthy option would be to go to the ER.

They relent, have me sign a form, and I'm off. I go home, take some Pepto, and sleep it off. Guess what? Wake up in the morning just fine.

Return to the plasma donation center next week. Say "I'm here for my semiweekly donation." They respond, "Sorry, you're blacklisted." "...What?"

Apparently, since I went against their "sound medical advice," and suggested something that actually cured the problem, I'm a danger to their business, and they won't have me.

TL:DR, Don't donate at Biomat.
#108 to #46 - anonymous (03/19/2013) [-]
Trying not to be rude, but it is kind of your fault that you donated while sick. Whenever I donate, they ask if I'm feeling sick or not, (more specifically searching for respiratory infection, but also ask if you have any other cold and flu-like symptoms) and if so, they recommend you don't do it in risk of this situation happening.

I spent the whole day on my computer.

Effectively decreasing the amount of calories used so, in theory, less energy wasted.

I know, I know. I'm way too energy efficient.

Oh well, now you know.

And knowing is half the battle. :V
#40 to #37 - anonymous (03/19/2013) [-]
It's more like "I did something good, how about you?"

But if you want to take offense to someone doing a good deed then that's fine, too.
#41 to #40 - snakefire (03/19/2013) [-]
It's self righteous douchebaggery.

There's no need to brag about good deeds

Try donating plasma. They're a lot more lenient with donors there, and you can do it more often.

(I have a viral infection making it impossible to donate straight blood, but I can donate plasma twice a week)
User avatar #111 to #105 - facetiousrunner (03/19/2013) [-]
when im done with college athletics i'll probably go for that, cheers
User avatar #24 to #22 - DrollHumor (03/19/2013) [-]
I know that feel. I take blood thinners, so they don't want my blood either. I get blood drawn every week, but they just test it to regulate my medication, and then throw it away...
User avatar #27 to #24 - facetiousrunner (03/19/2013) [-]
do you at least have a less common blood type to feel less ****** than me?
User avatar #28 to #27 - facetiousrunner (03/19/2013) [-]
more god im stupid
User avatar #29 to #28 - DrollHumor (03/19/2013) [-]
I don't know my blood type. Never thought about since I've been on blood thinners since I was six and giving blood has never been an option.
User avatar #30 to #29 - facetiousrunner (03/19/2013) [-]
since six, man thats rough. makes my whining about tb mono and the fact i run seem like nothing
User avatar #31 to #30 - DrollHumor (03/19/2013) [-]
Well, I did have an open heart surgery when I was 8 months old, and another when I was six. Long story short, I was born with a ****** up heart and a slight spine malformation. You'd never be able to tell by looking at me, so that's good.
I could be a Katawa Shoujo girl!

Also, how does running affect your ability to give blood? Aren't athletes desirable when it comes to donating stuff?
User avatar #32 to #31 - facetiousrunner (03/19/2013) [-]
I'm a distance runner so i train pretty much year round, i take ten days off after outdoor track every year. I train 20 out of 21 days on a three week rotation. Because of the nature of the strain I put on myself, I can't afford to have less blood. I'd pass out. It would effect my training very much so. It pays the bills so I can't not do it.

I joined the track team in elementary school, but my cardiologist said no.

There is probably something you got going for you i'd envy. Like besides running i am the laziest hunk of **** ever.

If there is anything, I can't think of it right now. But I must go to bed now and dream of chemistry, so I can kick my exam's ass tomorrow.

see chemistry! I avoided a degree because of the dreaded ******* class. go for it bro!
