So if you are able to give blood (and aren't a pussy), and haven't for 56 days, and are healthy, it would be great if you donated blood this weekend. It only takes about a half hour, 45 minutes at the most with all the paperwork and whatnot. Just think, man -- they are taking stuff OUT of your body to put into a STRANGER'S body because that stranger doesn't have enough. Man, if you really think about it, that's some mind-blowing shit right there. Or maybe I'm just light-headed from losing that pint.
Boviously it's a Good thing to donate no matter where you live, and you all should!, but man, 1.8 days, that's scary. Did you see that episode of ER where Mark Green didn't want to use the last bag of O positive on the guy who killed somebody? I always think of that episode when I give blood. DON'T WORRY MARK, MY BLOOD'S COMING! EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE DEAD!
