    It's his body but...
    that was a seriously messed up descision.
    I am only 14 and i know that. Shouldn't a 17 year old be smarter

    Being a citizen of the free-est country in the world, it's legal to be stupid.

    As long as he knows what the outcome will be 20 to 30 years from now.

    Very stupid decision, but in the end, it's HIS BODY.

    Do you have a link? I'm pretty sure the sale of human organs is still illegal in the U.S.

    What a great idea! Capitalism at it's very best!!

  • GINGERB... Bingo's... 2012/02/21 23:46:54
    Exactly correct. Every capitalist has to realise that he and he alone is responsible for his actions, good or bad. As long as we don't have to keep him alive on a dialysis when he reaches 40+. That's when capitalism becomes socialism.

    Interesting thought. Chances are he'll be fine with one. Odd thing is, when one gets kidney disease (I had it in the 60s) both are affected. So I guess we get 2 in order to be donors!

    Still a bad idea. Hopefully he will not regret it later in life.
  • GINGERB... ehrhornp 2012/02/21 23:30:49
    I'm quite sure that he will be reminded of this folly when he turns 40+.

    Well I guess if he lives a healthy lifestyle he should be all right. I mean people give kidneys to save a life and they don't necessarily die early because of it do they? It was my understanding that they just have to be more careful. But to do it for something to feed consumerism is just idiotic.

    This is what is called "PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY"

    And he'll be taking a lot of that on in the future.....sure hope he knows he's only got one for the rest of his life...so lay off the booze and anything else that could damage the remaining one

    Well he can do what he want but in my opinion he's an idiot.....our company just gave out about 3oo of these for free....he should have been working here and saved his kidney...lol

    The pups priorities are a bit skewed, but you can never convince him of that; because at 17.....he knows everything

    On the other hand, he should have sold his brain, it's not like he's using it
  • Yoru 2012/02/21 23:22:00
    Yep, that's his body, and he can damned well do whatever he wants with it.
    go for it, im not going to sit here and tell others how to live their own lives.

    I know that I wouldn't do it, but hey it's his body, he can do whatever he wants with it

    Not the first person to do it either.
