Yes

No, I just have pianos around here.

The Professor September 26, 2022 - 1:31 PM

What is better than roses on a piano?
Tulips on an organ!

And yes, I’m a donor.

Dr. Jellyfinger September 26, 2022 - 12:28 PM

No, but I gave away a piano once… really, true story.

As for my internal goodies…. I doubt they are in reusable condition…. years of hard partying and eating whatever I wanted have probably clogged the plumbing up considerably and if some real doctors looked close enough they’d probably suggest finding a newer liver that wasn’t used so much… maybe the kidneys would pass… eyes? nah! things are getting blurry up close.
Sorry for those in need… I can’t help you…besides that, I’m still using ’em.

Dr. Jellyfinger September 26, 2022 - 12:48 PM

Oh, and convince someone else to consider doing it?
Just do it, what do you care what they do with your stuff after you’re dead?

Those things are worth a fortune, but it’s against the law to charge money for them and have them removed while you’re alive just to sell them.
You can sell other stuff tho.
See the price list:

Sperm pays $1000 a pop?
Wish it paid that well when I was young.
Get down to the sperm bank guys!

$1000 ? ? ? ?

Sounds like a plan . . .

Martha, ! ? . . . Where’s my cane ?

Dude they make big big big money off your organs and you family gets none of the cash. The have an incentive to just reap all your organs and sell them. What do they care for you when your heart is worth ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

Oh you know the foreskin they take off male children when they mutilate them? Those are sold for profit. Old hags like Sandra Bullock get foreskin treatments for their gross old faces https://www.you tube.com/watch?v=BY2aOHQlAco

I wish I could.

I discussed this with my Dr. and she said “don’t you dare”.

I guess my past is catching up to me.

Cowellian September 26, 2022 - 1:32 PM

Yes! Why wouldn’t I try to help another human being stay alive? And if someone did ask my opinion, that is the same reasoning I would use.

Why?

Yes and hope some of these old organs are useful.

“Why not since it is currently the only way for parts of you to stay alive after you are dead.”

This is a serious question and as such I will defer to the Uyghers and Falun Gong in China.

Take some time and find out why organ transplants in China are like taking your car to Jiffylube for an oil change.

Could it happen here?

Dr. Jellyfinger September 27, 2022 - 7:29 AM

China uses prisoners as unwilling donors and charges patients a bundle.

Rich September 26, 2022 - 8:02 PM

You don’t have be dead to be an organ donor. I gave my wife a kidney 18 years ago and both are doing great. We both have answered questions for people considering being a living donor. There are currently over 106,000 people on the national transplant waiting list.

Jezebel September 26, 2022 - 8:45 PM

My mom had heart failure at age 58 and thanks to an organ donor she lived another 24 years and still kicking! She got to see her grandsons grow up and is now a great grandma! I’m absolutely a donor!

Oh Yeah September 27, 2022 - 9:49 AM

YES!! When I die, please take any parts of me that will help someone else! I’m not going to need them anymore!! Then cremate the rest of me so I won’t be taking up any more space.

diBen September 27, 2022 - 2:27 PM

Doc told me not to, they use you for research/dissection practice purposes not just organ harvesting.

nytemuvr September 27, 2022 - 4:45 PM

If anyone has an old Hammond B-3 organ with Leslie speakers to donate I’ll be glad to take it off your hands….I can get my Lee Michaels “Stormy Monday” on……
