No.

Edit: Looking at the form (UK), they don't seem to make even the most basic attempt to verify your identity. So how do they know you're not signing up someone else who objects to it? All you'd need to know is their birthday and where they live.

I did that to a friend once

I'm curious, would you receive an organ donation to save your life?


Don't know, don't really like thinking about that scenario. Probably not though.

You're also against vaccinations if i remember correctly as well.
It's like we only agree on shenmue :lol:


Bro, at least get my story straight, I wrote like paragraphs on that shit in that thread and all you can recall is that "I'm against vaccinations". You remember incorrectly and are doing my arguments injustice. Go back and read what I wrote exactly,

^ i did paraphrase that in an inappropriate/inaccurate way, I apologize.
If i remember correctly you were against vaccinations due to the unknown side effects that may or may not exist, and decided that they outweighed the proven benefits.

I was drunk while posting that the other day, so sorry for the post. What you posted just reminded me of that thread is all.
If you're dead/dieing, you don't need your physical body. If what you leave behind can allow others to keep on living, i don't see why you'd be against it.

You should think about it. You should really, really think about it. You're telling me that if you were on deaths door, you wouldn't take an organ transplant to survive? That's an easy thing to say when you're not on your deathbed.

Depends, did it fall on top of you and pop your liver out your arse, into the waiting hands of a cirrhosis patient?

That'd be a pretty unfortunate thing to happen in Scotland TBH.

Gonna sign up to this, though it scares me and I don't know why, but people have made some good points in here and I would likely take another persons organ if I needed to.

No need to apologise. The tagline "against vaccinations" probably suits me pretty well anyway to be honest. In the future I'mma stop writing essays on this stuff and just say I'm against vaccinations and that is all. I'm not being sarcastic either, I just don't have the arse to debate stuff any more ya know. After all, God will vindicate me and my brethren in the afterlife.

If you're dead/dieing, you don't need your physical body. If what you leave behind can allow others to keep on living, i don't see why you'd be against it.


That's a fair enough point of view, but I just don't like the idea of it, that is all I can say really.

You should think about it. You should really, really think about it. You're telling me that if you were on deaths door, you wouldn't take an organ transplant to survive? That's an easy thing to say when you're not on your deathbed.


I'm telling you that right now at this very moment, I feel like I probably wouldn't take one. Obviously I'm not in that situation though, and it's impossible to know how I would feel then and what I might decide, I guess it would depend on various factors. But yeah I'd rather not waste my time pondering a hypothetical, and instead spend my time ensuring that I won't need an organ transplant.

I don't think anyone would want your AIDS riddled, smaller than average penis anyway.

I'm sure god will.

Ensuring that you'll never need a transplant is pretty much an impossible task, but i wish you luck either way.

Well I was being entirely factual with my post, and if I would have said it in person, it would have been with dead eyes and a monotone voice. But yeah, it's only bantz. Not that I promote bantz.
