I'm an organ donor. Why? You can't take it with you, that's why.

Unless your religion prohibits it, become an organ donor. You will be a hero even after death.


Any deity that would smite you for saving somebody's life isn't worth worship in the first place.

Lol, can you imagine hollywood actors dissecting a real cadaver for a movie? That's something that I would pay to see!

Watch Angel Beats. nuff said.


It may be a bit sad, but that anime is exactly what pushed me to check the organ donor box when I renewed my license.
My mother didn't understand why I would do such a thing (she doesn't watch anime), but a few days later there was a newscast showing a lady who's life had been considerably prolonged by organ donation expressing profound gratitude to the daughter of the donor. I turned to my mom and said "That's why."
If in my death I can save someone's life, then my death will not be pointless.

I am, though my major concern being that I wouldn't want my heart (or any of my organs) going to some 400+ lbs. morbidly obese man in his mid-30s, who gets a transplant from a condition that he brings upon himself for having lived a deplorable lifestyle for the past two decades, only for him to continue eating his 10,000 + calorie a day fast food diet, in the months after surgery. A situation that arose during an internship experience.

Ah, I see. I don't know. Nothing says sexy like a vampire who sparkles. I tend to agree that it isn't too nice of a corpse to just get up and walk around. But then I think about long lost treasures and think it would be nice to follow a zombie blackbeard back to where he hid his treasure.

I wouldn't know about the science of whether or not a person can get ripped apart by a zombie. I always just assume that being a zombie it has acquired some berserk superstrength. I did however know about the intestines thing. It's one of the worst parts about dying. At least you could smell a zombie horde approaching though. As for obtaining brains I actually never considered how they broke the skulls open...now I think it would be funny to see a group of zombies trying to crack one open like a coconut.

I'm thinking about it although the idea of my organs in someone else's body freaks me out a bit, won't lie.

^This. (but I'm not a donor) I would also not want a criminal/prisoner, smoker, alcoholic, drug user, etc. to get them. If there is a deserving person, then they shouldn't be charged for my organ DONATION period. Nobody's gonna make a profit on my organs.


Anyway, the point is moot. I've got a chronic illness that will render my organs useless to anyone when I die. I'd donate to my kids if they needed it while I'm alive....although they might be ungrateful bastards about it.....I'd do it anyway.

I would be but after I'm done with them I doubt anyone will want them and I don't accept returns when I'm dead. Seriously though, I just never filled out the paperwork....

I signed up as an organ donor as soon as I was old enough to. I don't find it gross or creepy at all and if I can help save someone's life then why wouldn't I?
