    F*cking predators. I hope they rot.

    And I hope the kid didn't say "Well, I DO have another kidney..."

    Body parts for crap is never a good deal.

    I find this incredibly sad. Yet another way in which the poor continue to be preyed on and taken advantage of.

    I hear about people in America selling off blood, plasma and even their sperm and oocytes just to have money to pay basic bills....I am also sure that some have sold these things to buy luxuries also.

    I don't have any solutions, but I do find it incredibly sad.

    There was an outcry last christmas regarding the Wishing Tree appeal and how some horrible people were saying that kids filling out the cards were putting on things like Mp3 players and Playstation games when they were poor and should have been happy with underwear and socks. These are kids, they want those things and can't understand why they can't have them.

    What?!? I didn't know you could get cash for it. I've been giving it away for juice and cookies this whole time like a sucker.

    I actually thought of the Futurama thing 1st, but that one probably works better.


    Also, DB Kai still sucks :lol

    So this kid willingly sold his kidney to buy an iPad?

    Poor or not, I'm having a hard time feeling bad for him.

    Well, apparently. My American friend is always telling me how her husband gets paid $250 a month for plasma donations twice a week. I guess that's plasma though and not straight blood. If it makes you feel better, it is illegal to be paid in Australia for blood/plasma/gametes etc. All donations must be made without payment. Gametes you get medical costs paid for (women who donate eggs for eg don't pay for the super-ovulation drugs or egg retrieval costs as they are paid by the recipient of your eggs. If you donate sperm you get the cup provided or you can get a special condom if you are unable to donate without intercourse - that is it). Things like fuel money and time off work to donate is not compensated. When you donate blood here, you do get a nice snack at the end. I donate once a month and I actually find it relaxing...and I do enjoy the snack!

    I don't feel exactly sorry for this guy himself, at 17 he made a decision regarding his welfare that ended up blowing up in his face. He isn't blameless. I feel sorry that a system exists whereby this kid could sell his kidney for $3,500!!! It's outrageous and it saddens me that it is possible, in general.

    Dumb kid, there is nothing sad about his story. Yeah, he might have been poor but to be selfish enough to go for an Ipad and Iphone when he couldve contributed to his family?

    Reading this article from way back when: Chinese teenager Xiao Zheng sells kidney to buy iPad2 | Mail Online

    I have to say....if these things are seen a symbols of wealth....then he just sold a kidney from his poor ass to fake the funk. That's great. :rolleyes2 
    I guess working and saving up for something doesn't mean much anymore.

    And then there's this: Charges filed against five who removed teen

    NOT been identified???? :inquisiti 

    Ahem:

    Chinese teenager Xiao Zheng sells kidney to buy iPad2 | Mail Online

    Well....there's the name.....and they even posted a pic:

    [​IMG]

    But I guess.....that means he hasn't been identified.....:rolleyes2  because you know...a name and a pic....just isn't good enough. :redface2:

    I don't feel sorry for him. He intentionally brought it upon himself.

    I've seen poor. This guy at least has clothes. There's no holes either.

    90% rebate on human body parts? Hmmm.
