omg, great idea

okay, so i was just sittin around thinking about what i should do to my car mod-wise and i got it.

what i am goin to do is start donating blood and plasma......if i get only $20 everytime i donate blood and $40 for plasma (which is what is advertised, first time is 20, then 25, then 30, then 40 i think) then that would be about 435 the first month and 480 every other month.......now in 9 months thats 4275 which is more than enough to install my stage 2+ power pack ($2k) plus installation (~$1500) which leaves me with about 800 left over to throw an 8.8 in there. its gonna be pretty easy money, all i gotta do is show up and sit in a chair, needles dont bother me at all so this shouldnt be a problem.


now the question is, will the tranny hold up, or should i wait and save up that money a few more months and build it up or swap it out?

i wanna save up and do it all at once, so will a 4r70w hold up. i will only be about 270rwhp and about 300rwtq

thats gonna be sweet..........like a brand new engine


what suggestions do you have that i should do knowing now my plans, should i just forego that for a 4.2 or what?

Re: omg, great idea

Yeah... after you give plasma, you are drained. I've heard people are out of it for a couple days afterwards. But I guess there is only one way to find out. Maybe you could cut grass instead...

Re: omg, great idea

dude, you can only donate blood every 56 days.... which makes your $$ calculations an over estimate by 50%. I'm not sure how long in between donating plasma... but I'd imagine it's roughly the same period.

That and the whole "donate" thing defeats the purpose of being paid.

Why not just work and save like the rest of us.

I have nothing wrong with his idea of making a little extra cash by 'donating' blood and plasma, just thought I'd correct him so he doesn't think he can do it every month. I think it's a decent idea actually... but really, it doesn't make you THAT much... considering how drained you might be from plasma donation.

Re: omg, great idea

yea i dont think you can donate that often, there are other fluids that you can donate and get a good amount for :pnoid:, 50 bucks or so perhaps~ and you can do that more often~ at least I think, or you can cut grass.

Re: omg, great idea

Blood takes a while before you can donate again, but you can donate plasma more than 1 time per week. Alll they do for plasma is take your blood, syphon out the plasma, and stick your blood back in you.

Re: omg, great idea

at $40 a pop, or whatever he said for plasma, that could turn into good mod money.

Yeah, but like I said... it hurts, and it really does drain you for a good couple days. If you need some quick cash its not a bad idea... but personally I wouldnt wanna do it more than 1 time per month

Re: omg, great idea

hire an illegal immagrant to give you his blood pay him 25% of what its worth, turn it in using a jar. The more illegals you get the more money you make!

Somehow I don't think they'll take it in a jar. It would just raise further questions.

Re: omg, great idea

yeah you can give plasma twice a week, just gotta be 48hrs in between visits.


my buddy john did this before he moved, he said the only part is when they are putting the blood back in kinda feels weird but you get used to it, he said it didnt really hurt.

i am goin down tomorrow and talk with the people about it, it is definately good mod money at 320 a month just donating plasma at 12 months is ~3840

i dont think i will.........the people that HAVE donated in the past didnt feel fatigued.....and its impossible to be that way all the time seeing as that your body quickly replentishes the plasma taken out, thus restoring the "lost energy", if any


and if i do start feeling bad from it, then i'll just stop.........its that easy

I've never known anybody to donate plasma that much for that long. I don't think you can do it.

Re: omg, great idea

it's plenty safe... as long as it's a decent hospital... of course, your hermaticrite will be a little higher than normal... (percent of blood that is red blood cells).. and too high of hermaticrite is bad news.

Re: omg, great idea

I donated for 1 years while attending college. I hit 2 differant center twice a week. So I was getting drained 4 times a week. Felt like **** that whole year !! No energy
Worest part for me was all the Saline they pump into you while they seperate the plasma from your blood & the crater the needle left in my arm

I mean, it's safe. In moderation. It's not going to kill you, but it's gonna suck. You'll be so much more likely to get sick.

Haha Herbstang, I bet you looked like you used the **** out of some heroin.
