    I mean when it comes down to it, selling plasma sounds like it amounts to a tiring session but for what you'd get back for it in the states definitely worth it

    Cass and I have our budget pretty well squared away and yet having an extra hundo a month would suit me juuust fine

    Yeah, depending on where you live it's like being paid $30 an hour to sit there. Plus it's not as tiring as donating whole blood, since they put the red cells back in, you recover quicker.

    It's not really 'selling' your plasma.

    They compensate platelet donors specifically (not blood and plasma donors) because platelet donation requires you to spend a significant amount of time sitting there, and it's debilitating on top of it. Blood donation is very quick by comparison, and leaves most people only a little lightheaded, and not for very long.

    I have not heard of blood/plasma donors being compensated like that.

    My restaurant actually put escolar on the menu (I'm guessing that's the fish you're talking about, it's a common tuna substitute)

    It's honestly not a problem unless you eat tons and tons of it

    (That said restaurants should give you what they say is on the menu, obvs)

    It should not be a 'common tuna substitute'

    It is not even a food grade fish.

    It's not even a pet food grade fish.

    Your restaurant may as well be serving roadkill.

    but...the food blogs i was reading say it's delicious...and intestinally distressing for certain people. but also delicious!

    The UK made selling horsemeat illegal, and you can see how well that worked out for us.

    There are plenty of delicious things that do not cause oily explosive orange shits.

  • Regina FongRegina Fong Allons-y, Alonso Registered User regular
    I think the best part is that it's an oily explosive orange shit if you're lucky.

    If you're unlucky the stinky orange oil just comes straight out into your pants with no ability to control it even with clenching. It's precisely the same thing that happens if you use mineral oil as a laxative (note: this is one of the reasons mineral oil is not a preferred laxative of the healthcare community, even though it does work quite effectively).

    Donating platlets is super time consuming, but you can do it once a week!

    Yeah. Yeah. I'm just mad. At the restaurant. At chefs. At oily fish.

    Oh well. I guess they didn't make a classy decision. At least it only stuck around for like a month and no one I know came down with escolar illness.

    They don't want my homo blood. I learned more about blood donation than I wanted to know because when I was in sub school we were ordered to go donate blood at a blood drive. So I came up with some lie or another to disqualify myself from donating, to avoid checking the "gay" box on the form and being outed in front of 20 other sailors.

    It was a wise decision. When the blood drive volunteer spoke with me about my not-qualifying due to (I think I claimed malaria region travel) my fake reason, she was not quiet about it and the conversation was semi-private at best.

    I guess I could have just lied all the way and donated blood.

    Really, I think it's just inappropriate to force people to go to blood drives.

    Also inappropriate to maintain the "no homo" rule for blood donations, given that AIDS isn't a gay disease anymore. Not that it ever was...but...you know.

    last time I checked (right after 9/11), I am forever barred from donating because I lived in the UK during a certain period and they're afraid I have mad cow or something

    That's a whole separate issue. It's not my call what their standards are. I didn't enjoy having to lie, even knowing that my lie was intended purely to protect myself while still producing the same result as if I had not lied.
