You know what sucks?
When you get an unedited page ownership, with a typo.

You can't correct the typo, or you lose the page.

A+, dammit.

Unless you had Lymphoma, Leukemia, or another blood cancer the place down here will look at you.

Great for you, sucks for me.

I'm negative for some common virus that they don't like to give to infants, as well.

I'm pretty much on the vampire top 10 menu.

ETA:

Type O- represents around 6.6% of the U.S. population. Type O- can be recieved by anyone, however type O-'s can only receive O-.

Why does this suck balls for us, you ask?  

It's pretty simple - Your gunshot/zombie bite/car crash/whatever ass gets dragged to the E.R.
You are losing blood at an alarming rate, and need blood now.
The first thing they do?  Plug a few (hundred) units of O- into you to keep you alive.
Eventually they'll figure out your blood type, and refill you with a better match.  Great for you, take a week off work, and go home.

In the mean time, my gunshot/zombie bite/car crash/whatever ass gets dragged to the E.R.
A day after you just bled out 200 units of O-.  They give me enough to keep my alove while they blood type me.
Well fuck, I can't survive any other type, and one of you thrill seekers just bled out the whole supply.
Yay me.

I just died in the hospital. I'm pretty sure it'll be attributed to gunshot/zombie/not wearing a seatbelt, not to the fact that some AB+ asshole used up the O- supply!

O negs: please donate. You just might save my life.

Everyone else: Stop doing stupid shit that makes you bleed!
If it's not your fault, and that pint I gave a bit back saves your ass and I get to bleed to death, I can live with that.
If it is your fault, and you live, and I die... I will fucking haunt your toaster.  You don't like toast?  I will make toast like you. You will not like it. This is a promise.
Stop wasting my blood.


Can us ONEG folks go ahead and continue to do stupid shit that makes us bleed? I mean, I just got a skateboard and all.

That table is wrong.
O NEG is universal donor.

Yeah, that's the same table, it's just set up slightly confusing.

We should create an O- Blood Type Support Group so that if an arfcommer with O- needs blood, we can all donate.

I've given a couple gallons to the blood bank.  I wish they wouldn't waste it on futile care but I still give anyway.

That really depends... what are your thoughts on toast?

Link Posted: 10/27/2010 10:48:14 PM EDT
I don't know.  I think I spent more than 3 months in the UK before 1996, so I'm ineligible to donate.

My blood is relatively useless if I remember right, and I've had bad experiences trying to donate before, plus I've spent a lot of time in parts of the world that the vampires aren't fond of.




As a result, I don't remember my blood type.

I try to donate blood whenever they call for it. Thankfully they are at my church every Monday so I don't have to drive far when I do donate.

Nope, the ARC is retarded about the mad cow crap:




Wait 12 months after travel into areas
             with a risk of malaria.


             Wait 3 years after immigrating from a country with malaria.


             Persons who have spent long periods of time in countries where mad
             cow disease is found are not eligible to donate. You may not donate
             if you have stayed more than 3 months total in countries on list
             1, or more than 6 months total in countries on list 1 or 2, since
             1980.

           
List
             1: England, Wales, Scotland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Northern
             


                         
             Ireland, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar


             


             List 2: All of the countries in Europe, Oman, Turkey
