They have WIFI and I can check my e-mail and stuff one handed on my tablet during the donation process.
Personally, I'd rather flip burgers with a bunch of snot-nosed teens than sell my biologicals to some seedy plasma vampire clinic in a seedy section of town.
It's not that I feel bad for taking money, it's just the idea of selling a part of me for a couple bucks. It's like, ugh, I can't afford to eat today. Guess I better go sell a piece of my liver.
It's because they need to pay the exorbitant salaries to their top officials.@F and L TeleComm wrote:
Would you feel near as bad about being paid for your plasma if you knew how many 1000's of dollars they sell your blood for to hospitals? (In essence, to the patient/insurance company?) I was shocked when I read an article about it one time. Take a look at this article about the Red Cross when you get a chance: [otenews.com]

I tried to donate plasma once. I'm guessing I looked too clean cut and the (ancient) doc must've thought I was an investigator or something. He took all my information, then disqualified me, and thanked me for coming in. I was actually glad to be dq'ed as the place seemed full of druggies.

There is money in scrap metal. The problem is though that thieves have messed up the game for everybody. It's hard work and even hard to find stainless or aluminum. You have develope a network of mechanic shops or be in the HVAC industry or plumbing industry. My problem is I can't throw metal away now. When I see metal trash I see cash. Most don't pay much and you need a whole load to make any money. The last time I replaced my broken window unit a/c I broke down the old one (disassembled into separate metals, aluminum, copper and tin)) and took it up there. They made me go back home and get the receipt for the new one. Basically, if someone tells you you can have their old scrap lying around you won't have a receipt not sure you can sell it nowadays. I can just see myself buying $50 worth of coins and finding all face value coins. Not worth my time. Wouldn't mind being a psychic reader or sex phone person though (haha). But I don't have a clue how to get those jobs too tough. I don't know the meanings of all the Taro cards or even the chrystals by heart.
Oh yeah, but you can open up a storefront and make money or even a spare room in your house if you wanna hang some beads and get the atmosphere right. I found it rather draining and would rather not do it but then again I wasn't a fake.
