Blood for oil

Sign on building: Need Gas Money? Donate Plasma. $$ Earn Cash $$

Seen at the Heaviest Bike. Related here, here, and here. See also this desperate plea:
I am a college student and am in desperate need of some gas money. If I give plasma the blood bank here they will pay me $50.00. My girlfriend says its stupid but I am litterally running my car on empty and all of my paychecks go to rent money and insurance. Does this hurt to give plasma? How often can I do it? I was thinking if I did it twice a month I could make some extra gas money but would it be healthy?
When I was in college, the stereotype of these plasma centers was that it was all junkies who sold their blood to get their next fix. Seems apropos.


  1. Thanks for that...everyone at work got a nice laugh as I almost fell out of my chair!

  2. I'm glad you like it. I live to serve.
