Oh Shi.. Don't wake the tiger!
Well, would you give up your "etc a kidney" to save a stranger's life? How about if you were paid handsomely to do so?

The clock is ticking. What is your answer?

Depends on the organ.
It's not about the money (though the money does give me more incentive, heh), but more the situation and who the stranger was. If the stranger was Hitler, I would say no.

I never want to donate or give away or destroy too much of my body in hopes that someone can resurrect me.

A side note for thewrongvine, to me a stranger is someone you don't know anything about, there for Hitler really wouldn't be a stranger.

I would say no. I'm going to keep my body intact, even after I die.

suga suga how'd you get so fly?

Divide et impera
it depends how vital the organ is, how old I am, if I have had any issues with said organ(s), and still probably no, since generally the implants are much more successful if the people are somewhat related (familty/etc.)

ex: I wouldn't do it if it was a kidney and I had kidney problems, since I would need both of them, but if I was old and had heart problems but no kidney problems, I might do it

or were you talking about after you die/etc.?

and even so, probably not a complete stranger, I would like to know some information about them first if possible (not really sure why too much, just curiosity?)

I didn't know you can donate lungs. How are you supposed to breathe with just 1 lung?

OT: I would never donate any of my organs if I were alive and completely healthy. If I knew I had a deadly disease (or was already dead), then I would donate it.

Basically, I would donate my organs to anyone who needs it more than I do. Our bodies are gonna rot anyway, so why waste the precious material? :cool:

Well I'm a registered organ donor, my ID has a donor symbol thingy on it and everything. So if I die, they harvest my swag and give it to people I guess. Does that count?

Only if it goes to a stranger apparently.

    My one game was basically Among Us but you sabotaged an entire medieval city simulated drastically inefficiently with dynamic NPCs :S

    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
  • jonas jonas:
    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm currently creating (as a hobby) a space invaders like game for mobile using Xamarin, after starting a few larger projects that I also may not have finished :rolleyes::p

    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \

    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
