    Look. Get me to the Polish-German border, find me a backpacker, a public restroom, and a cooler with ice and I'll have a kidney for you.

    At first thought, I mused, "I don't want a dirty backpackers kidney...." but then I remembered than my last kidney legit came from a heroin user.

    True story: when they called me to offer the kidney, they told me that they had to disclose that it came from a "high risk" person. They can offer these, and they test them to make sure they are free from disease (and of course damage), but they have to tell the recipient. You can deny these offers, but you're basically a fool if you do. Their screening processes are amazing these days, but they warn you that you might develop some rare form of like hepatitis C or something. Anyway, my last kidney came from a young man who overdosed. He wasn't an organ donor - his parents agreed to donate his organs when he was declared braindead and on a respirator.

    It often makes me think of the fact that what was one of the best and most miraculous days of my life, it was the worst day in the life of other people. I gotta keep that in mind when people say something like, "God gave you a gift...". I wonder what God gave that other family.

    Sorry, got metaphysical there. But that shit haunts you as a recipient of a donated kidney. Life is friggin' crazy.

    i cant say for them, but if it was me, i would be a little consolation knowing whats left of me can be a help for others. I am not a parent, so i cannot say if it was my child, but my prediction is the same.

    I am not religious, and i absolutely dont care what happened to my body after death,but if it can be of use to someone, I sure would sign up for it. I am planning to be an organ donor anyway.

    As long as you don't get an organ and then die doing a buck eighty running from the cops I think it's all good.

    it seems the donations made in octobers are all not registered properly, probably goes into the secret fund of DarkUnderlord to lay siege to kremlin and claim his right

    Haha, well - no huge personality changes, really. They put you on a lifetime dose of prednisone, a steroidal drug, and that can make you moody sometimes (among 7,000 other side effects). No cravings for human flesh, hah, so that friend better stop trying to eat "pork" rinds.

    did you consider that your wife is willing to give her kidney due to slight chance you will start enjoying stuff like doing dishes afterwards?

    Just FYI, my second donation from 19th of October is still not visible. I hope the money reached the fundraiser (and not only because I want my potato) instead of vanishing in some Paypal moneybag.

    Look into the Codex and the Codex looks into you
    So of 153 payments reviewed, it's those made between 14 Oct to 29 Oct that failed to be recorded by the Codex (all are sitting in PayPal).

    In total, 61 payments failed to be recorded. I've just gone through and manually added those. This has added $1,033.04 to Steve's Kidney campaign.

    Anyone who donated, check to see if your donation is now there. If not, PM me with the date, amount, and PayPal transaction ID and I can look into it.
