8/23/2003: Kidney sale

Kinda reminds me of the Futurama episode when Bender sold his body for a wad of cash. I wonder how long the live organ market will be around concidering this article: http://science.slashdot.org/article....id=126&tid=134

Now if I just knew where to buy fava beans, my repast would be complete. They don't have them at the local bodega, perhaps I should try Whole Foods Market.

I wonder how much the recipient paid for that $1800 organ?

I wonder how long it will be before snopes has to change their page. Oddly, this is the first thing I though of when I read this.

So this is how we get Rho a new one!

I bet you could if you'd be willing to risk letting foreign doctors do the operation. Could be risky, though.

That strike's me as pretty funny, Juju. If you'd be willing to use foreign Doctors, there's no reason to leave Philly. It's full of them.

Yeah, but you have to pay American prices.

Snopes won't change the page, I would imagine, because the situation in question still hasn't happened.

Now I know why Osama bin Laden is still kicking.
