Re: Gas dollars for blood!

people already sell plasma, what's the difference of giving someone money specifically for gas than just giving them money. . .?

Re: Gas dollars for blood!

I wonder if they'll give me a sticker that says "My Car runs on Blood, Not Gas"...

I like my roads the same way I like my women. Nice and Curvy.

When I've given blood, they give a t-shirt, or a bag.

Also, when a "free t-shirt" is involved it seems to draw people in. . .imo

Different though, because you're donating to a blood bank. Pharmaceutical companies, unlike blood banks, are allowed to pay for plasma

One would think that things are so bad that they are sucking our blood for gas $$
It is the symbolism that is pathetic
