Long hailed as one of the easiest ways for college students to make some extra cash I've been thinking more and more about trying this out. Has anybody ever done this? Will they test your blood for THC? if so, do they test it for THC every single time.

You get paid for donating blood? Shit. I thought you only got a sticker and extra karma.

Well, since I take SSRIs I don't think they'd want mine. Poop.

My parents donated blood until they got too old and they just recieved various gift items like plates, cups and shirts with "blood donor" and the logo on them.

Sweden has sort of a rule where it's unethical to give people money for donating parts of their body, as it would be like too much of an exploitation of poor people and their need for cash.
I suppose this also extends to blood.

it's illegal to get money for blood, but plasma is different for some reason.

What's the difference between donating blood and plasma? I thought plasma was just blood without the red-blood cells or something.

ety: Just as you said it. Plasma is blood with the cells and platelets removed.

I do believe that they will test for drugs (legal and illegal alike), but I don't think marijuana excludes you from donating.

Here's the same about donating plasma. They take a bunch of blood out, do some shit (I'd assume removing the plasma from the blood) and then they put the blood back into your body. And apparently, the blood gets kinda cold and shit, so it feels really weird.

I donated blood once and I got some cookies and a pin. I went a second time but I was banned for a year because I played a game called punch the can. Basically you and your partner take turns punching a can until somebody gives up. I haven't gone back since.

That's my understanding, I think you get paid like $25 for the first trip, and like $40 for the second or something like that. It's supposed to only take like 45 or 60 minutes to donate if you're well hydrated, and you can do homework (one handed) at the same time.

So have any of you actually done it? I've been considering doing it, but I don't actually know anyone whose ever donated plasma so I've been kinda wary of it. The local place that does it pays $60 a donation, though....

I tried donating, but I am not eligible because of the medication that I am currently taking.

A friend of mine donates plasma and platelets (which apparently gets you more money) and hasn't said anything bad about it yet.

So is donating blood, but donating plasma is an AIDS test, and a physical.

My friends and I, last semester had this ingenius plan to all donate plasma every thursday and use the money for alcohol on friday.

Of course like most well thought out plans, we never ended up doing it.

There's a plasma donating facility down the street from IF0. They require an appointment and a physical to set it up to make sure you aren't a loser, but then they pay you upto 3 times a week.
Realize that falling in love with someone is just the results of a series of generic events that can occur between you and basically anyone who meets your standards of attractiveness. It's just an emotional manifestation of a handfull of chemicals bouncing back and forth. It's not the holy grail of living, it's not your reason to exist and it's definitely not something reserved for "that one person". Accept that you are just an animal with a big brain that allows him to fret over what only amounts to a game of hormone pool. What you're feeling is not your soul dying a gurgling, ugly death, but withdrawal. All the happy chemicals that saturated your body when you were with her are kicking out cold turkey, and your body is screaming bloody murder, where are my fucking endorphins? It's just chocolate. Find a new bar.

the website for the local clinic says that they take a urine sample during the physical, but I guess I can call them tomorrow and ask directly.
