I may have ranted about this before but I have got my goat up and a rant is what I need.
So many refuse to give blood and that is why we are always running low.
But you can bet 99.9% of those who refuse to give blood will take it when needed.
So lets say If you don't give blood you don't get any If needed.
You can bet If this happened we would never run out of blood.(not going to happen don't worry).
So do it people give blood, tell your workplace you want the blood van to come around, it will get you off work for an hour
.
Rant over carry on.

Oh and while I'm at it leave your organs to people who really need them also....it's the moral thing to do.

Couldn't we all just donate to our own cause?

Kind of like a personal savings account or life insurance, lol.

The bank is the hospital and they keep your blood account safe incase anything happens to you.

The human genome project would expand exponentially.

I doubt those who haven't already found themselves in the system will want to give up their secrets though.

Our blood is our identity.

Well a good idea but what If you are far away from where you need it?.
You may be dead before it gets to you.

I would love to give blood.

But unfortunately, since I'm a "disease carrying homosexual", that's not legally allowed in my country.

Which is insane, but anyway...

Hell I'd donate blood in a heartbeat (see what i did there). But then you'd have a bunch of drunken stoners wandering out of the hospitals. Not that that would be a bad thing in my eyes. But alas my previous lifestyle excludes me from being a viable donor.

But if you are able to donate please do it is needed and could possibly save a life and that my friends is priceless.

Not when Amazon's drone delivery service goes into effect or quantum teleportation becomes a reality!


Science will eventually find a may to materialize anything anywhere in an instant. To bad you and I will be dead and we wont know how the story ends.

Husband gives blood and platelets all the time. I would, but I have a very real needle phobia ... as in I pass out. Get the blood without the needles and it's yours.

I've never been able to give blood. The only time I have weighed enough is when I was pregnant. Ive always come in under what they want, so they refuse to take it. It's not by choice, it's genetics. I hope some kind soul would give me some if I ever had a need of it though. If the day comes (and I think finally it is) when I can start packing on a few pounds, I will gladly donate.

That's absolutely pathetic. I wonder how many of them would turn it down were they in a situation where they needed it right then?

My guess? Not a damn one.

Yeah my husband is a pediatrician, we are both HIV negative, we get tested yearly, even though we don't sleep around, but it's the responsible thing to do. To this day, they still won't let us give any blood.

Which is a damn shame because we are both O type. Could have saved a lot of lives with 15 plus years of blood giving, but oh no. Can't let them evil gays give a drop, even though they test the hell out of it before it ever gets placed anywhere near a person.

How does a laser sound, lol?

Does this thing look less scary and invasive to you?

Microscopic laser beam promises no-needle blood draws



NoNeedles Venipuncture (Altamonte Springs, FL) is working on addressing the common fear of needles (called trypanophobia) with the research backing of Dr. Rodrigo Amezcua Correa, assistant professor of optics at the University of Central Florida. Thanks to the Florida High Tech Corridor Council’s Matching Grants Research Program, they are developing a process that uses laser pulses to painlessly draw blood without using a needle, which could have a major impact on the medical field with a particular focus on pediatrics.

It applies to all gay people and it's from a fear that they somehow carry more sexually transmitted diseases than heterosexual folks do. As if no straight person ever sleeps around, has contracted HIV, etc.
