Blood for beer
October 25, 2003
From the Durango Herald, Colorado

Participants in a United Blood Services blood drive donated in the name of one of the four Durango breweries. They received a free pint of beer in exchange.

Great idea, I think.
Has anyone else went out for drinks after giving blood?
Talk about a cheap date. You get drunk a lot faster.

I had a beer once in college after giving a pint. Won't ever do that combination again.

It works even better with plasma donations :)

The benifit with plasma over blood is that you have beer money afterword, and you still have your cheap buz. In addition, you can do it twice per week as opposed to 1 time every 8 weeks :)

Ah, collage nights......

-LOL, man your better off getting out the gasoline rag. Didn't Homer try this on the Simpsons? Moe wouldn't give him a beer so he decided to try another way to get a buzz. Gave blood, ran up a mountain, then when he drank one beer he was all messed up.
