I have done it a few times, and I'd be happy to do it again, next drive I see, I'ma gonna make it a point to have 'em drain me.

There's a local place that pays for plasma, free childcare while they drain the life outta ya, (bloodsuckers watching my bloodsuckers) and you can make up to $200 a month.

Donating blood is a worthwhile endeavor, but it's inconvenient, but so is bleeding to death, I suppose.

I do not donate blood because I was stationed in Europe in a year that makes them not want my blood. I believe it has something to do with the mad cow thing back in the mid 90's, but I'm really not sure, I know Spain and 1994-1995 was a no go though.

Really? Some of you guys get tickets, stuff, and get paid for donating blood? Up here we get a cookie and a glass of orange juice, a thanks, and the privilege of helping someone out when they are in need.

So is this in all states or just certain ones? Interesting.

Not here! I was given a pile of fliers for upcoming events (Springsteen Concert ect.) that I could enter to win free tix but that was it.

yeah our local blood center recently had some kind of a Jimmy Buffett thing, where they gave out his t-shirts or something. Planned to go but couldnt make it with the rental house work and all.

I should also add that I was given a sticker name tag that I was to wear while at the donation site. Some new legal thing I guess. What was left of the blood in my body was boiling when I realized it was still on my shirt 3 hours later after running a few errands.
