    I was over at the engineering hall and was bored between classes when my friend informed me that there was a blood drive. I had never given blood before so I decided to give it a shot.

    I was in the bloodmobile and the nurse was rattling off a list of at least 40 questions. The answer to part of the string was mostly yes. He was rattling them off because he had them memorized.

    I was sitting there waiting for him to prick my finger and do the iron test and the conversation went something like this:

    "Obscure question"..."yes"

    "Obscure question"..."yes"

    "Obscure question"..."yes"

    "Have you ever had sex with another male"..."ye...****, NO!"

    I think everyone in the bloodmobile was laughing and I was as red as could be. :doah:

    Maybe I'm selfish, maybe I'm weird, but I just can't bring myself to donate blood. I always think of some evil pyramid scheme of blood thirsty vampires when they call my wife, asking for blood. Those people are ruthless.

    At any rate, good one Mike.

    :haha::haha::haha::haha:

    You'd be amazed at how fast a pint of blood comes out. Besides, it's essentially a free blood workup. They send you a letter a month or two later listing your blood type and telling if they found anything abnormal.

    Yep, we keep it because it's our blood. We don't want that hybrid blood/corn oil **** that runs through your veins down there.

    :bow: With one regular donation every two months I'll have donated 10 gallons in 13 years and 5 months. :haha:

    That's definitely cool of you man, I think I'm gonna make it a regular thing.

    Sled, I have a friend that's a senior in microbiology, he's lied about a tat the last couple times he has donated and the blood passes every time. :confused:
