He seems a bit on the attack but at least they held a conversation?
In my defense of this shjtty upload, I was drunk when I uploaded it AND I actually cancelled the upload. It said I successfully cancelled it but this clearly proves that that was a lie... I just thought that “LaDarkProphet” was being a real jerk even when “Blasphemy is fun” tried to play semi-nice. Once again didn’t deserve to be uploaded and I did at least try to cancel it... I apologize though and will have a talk with drunk me.
@Pseudonymble , I dont understand the hate. It's no top tier meme, but it's worth the read.
@ThePandaPool , agree... cunt!
@Pseudonymble , tell drunk you to buy sober me some drinks and we’ll call it even
@Murphlins, is Natural Light okay?
@Pseudonymble , Dude your cool. I was being a cunt to blasphemy. Because im a cunt. Im not ashamed or scared of that fact. Im not here to win a popularity contest ^-^ im actually thankful you posted this. Means even more people will hear about donating. So thank you ^-^.
@LaDarkProphet, I wouldn’t say you’re a cvnt, you were just being a jerk, as we all are sometimes.
@LaDarkProphet, although I guess it depends on where you’re from... in America cvnt is basically our worst insult that nobody ever uses but in other countries I believe it’s more equivalent to jerk so...
Kind hearted until someone doesn't follow my moral compass exactly huh? Funny how many hollow shells of human beings are like that these days.
@M0RT0S, that's a little harsh for this particular situation dont you think? I'd understand if they were talking religion or something to that matter, but this isnt so terrible.
@ThePandaPool , just an observation I've made about some people over time. Sometimes the truth is harsh, doesn't mean I hate them or anything.
@M0RT0S, Hey i admit im a bad person. This was just a little PSA. Its within my right to think your a selfish cunt if you refuse to donate for no legitimate medical reason. And you in turn can think im a judgemental bastard. Thats fine. Cause i am. So are you. I gave him an upvote cause he was honest. I respect honesty.
@ Mr Cuymenq, I was gonna comment something witty, but this takes the cake.
@ Mr Cuymenq, But i dont even know him ^-^
If you don't donate blood, what will I drink when I break into the blood bank?
Cause I'm not drinking pen ink or toilet water again
Man all these people trying to tell others what to do like it’s their place, to the point you literally need to start giving parts of yourself or you’re a bad person. What a fvcking world we got now.
@nepheal, Do... do you not know how blood donation works? Do... do you not understand how important it is? Im guessing youve never been in an accident or had any loved ones in an accident or apparently ever heard of someone in an accident. Smh.
First off. The key word is donation. Meaning you have to do it willing. And unlike monetary donation most people do not have a legitimate exucse not to donate blood. It takes less then 20min and has virtually 0 lasting effects and has tangible proof to save lifes. Unlike monetary donations which often goes nowhere but someone else's pocket. Its quite literally the least someone could do that has actual tangible benefits to help humanity.
I don't think your a bad person for not donating. I just think your a selfish person. Most people are selfish. Doesnt make them bad. I aint no commie after all. But unless you have legitimate medical reasons why you cant donate you dont have any logical reason to say no other then your selfish. Which is fine
@LaDarkProphet, I believe you were in full right. People are shtty. No one should be forced but if you're just doing it because "mines mine and i don't care" that is lazy and selfish and theyll get the karma they give out hopefully
@ReverseLion, Well thanks man ^-^
@LaDarkProphet, what is your excuse for not donating all of your extra money to save another human beings life? You presumably have a computer, or gaming console, or buy unnecessary snacks or coffee. Why is spending your money on those completely arbitrary and unnecessary things okay in your eyes when you are literally choosing them over saving another human beings life, but choosing not to donate is a dick move?
@Pseudonymble , Because unlike monetary donation, there is literally zero risk and zero side effects. Donating your money is nice and all but just where exactly is your money going? And there are those who cannot donate financially because they have more important expenses. Financial donations are nearly impossible to be proven to benefit anyone but the one donating and the charity itself. It is a tax write off afterall. But unlike a charity, donating your blood doesnt do anything for the donator but make them feel good for donating out of the kindness of their heart. No tax refund necessary. And unlike charities, you know your blood is going to be used for the greater good instead of just lining someone elses pockets.
See, the thing is. You can make excuses for not donating all your money. But what excuses do you really have for not donating blood? Outside of obvious medical reasons. See? Outside of pure selfishness, there isnt one. Plain and simple. This isnt rocket science bud.
@ReverseLion, So you think that I deserve something bad to happen to me just because I choose not to donate blood? Irrational or not it makes me very uncomfortable to imagine my own blood in another human, they could commit crimes or hurt somebody with what is mine. I donate to charity all the time in both money and time, I try to be nice to everyone I meet and do my best to be a good person. Why should I be obligated to make myself feel mentally terrible and donate a physical part of me? Are you a bad person because you treat yourself sometimes instead of donating literally every spare penny you have to save a child’s life? Is that your responsibility? You seem to believe you know the exact moral compass of the world and judge others harshly... but whatever I guess.
@Pseudonymble , And really? Your trying to compare the $4 i spend on coffee with the ability to save someone's life instead of donating blood? Did you really compare the two? That is a whole new level of asinine. Blood donations actually do save lifes. Im sure you know and have met people who have needed a blood donation. They are alive today because someone else decided to spend a little bit of time to donate. Thats all it costs to donate. A bit of time. 20-30 minutes tops. And unlike money, everyone has time to spare. Instead of getting your nails done, playing video games, pointlessly arguing on FP, or playing video games you could do something that will save lifes.
If you cant see the ocean sized difference between monetary donations and blood donations your a level of delusional and short sightedness id rather not converse with.
I admit im a cunt. An honest cunt. But still a cunt. Whats your excuse?
@Blasphemy is Fun, First off. Karma is a made up belief. If you think your a good person then Karma says you will be rewarded. Thats not hard to understand.
Secondly. Your statements are irrational and idiotic. Your blood is just a fluid in your body. Your delusional belief that it is somehow tethered to you is absurd. I assure you that your blood would work exactly the same in someone else as it is in you. Jeez, the way you go on you sound like one of those guys who jack off into a cup and drink it to "recycle" and "keep" whats theirs inside themselves. *shudder*
Unlike donating money, there is absolutely 0 side effect to blood donation. Your body wont even notice the loss if your healthy. Worst case scenario? You get a little dizzy for like 5 minutes. Its asinine the b.s i just read.
Mentally ill for donating a part of you? Absolutely retarded. So much for being a good person. Probably not even on the organ donor list.
(My second main gripe will be continued)
@Blasphemy is Fun, But my biggest gripe is the delusional belief that you can just throw money at a problem and have it go away. Thats laughably obscene. You probably donate for the tax write off and not out of the goodness of your heart anyway. But, for the sake of hypothetical, lets say i believed you. That you truly donate all this money out of pocket. Where does that money go? You do realize the majority of it goes to the charity right? You should look into how charities work. You would realize a vast majority of them are a scam. Most likely all your money lined someones pockets. And yours as well, cause you cant forget the tax write off.
But blood donation? That DOES actually save people's lifes. Thats an empirical fact. You probably know someone who needed a blood transfusion. They would not be alive today if someone hadnt donated. Imagine if everyone was as selfish, self centered and delusional as you. The death rates would sky rocket. Good thing most people arnt. Smh.
Well it seems an awful lot like you’re full of excuses. There are a ton of charities that you can know for a fact your money is going to good use... Breast cancer research is a good one, Save the Children is a great one, are you afraid of embezzlement or something? Because it’s quite easy to spend 5 minutes or less and find a charity that is actually helping people. I am saying that your 4 dollars for a coffee probably a minimum of 2 times a week is comparable... $32 a month or as much as $240 for some people may not seem like a lot but it is for starving kids... also you didn’t mention your leisure expenditures which would save a lot more people. You say it does nothing but make you feel good to donate but that’s just you personally, it seems clear that “Blasphemy is Fun” would be negatively affected by donating (speaking of mental state here). I also consider you asinine for not realizing that playing video games, getting your nails done, etc.. all cost money that could save lives.
@LaDarkProphet, You say some people can’t afford to donate? Well some people can’t donate blood either, but we’re discounting both of those small groups and are talking about the majority. Your reasons are ridiculous and you seem to just be trying to justify not donating money while saying that donating blood is the only real important thing, so people who donate blood are great but people who don’t donate money aren’t bad even if they spend money on stuff they really don’t need. You’re clearly more than an “honest cvnt” you’re an individual who skews the facts to justify his own beliefs and harshly judges others for not aligning themselves with them.
@Pseudonymble , Save lifes is quite a stretch. Improve quality of life maybe, but i doubt $240 is going to literally save someone's life. (And if your going to respond tag me so i notice.)
And i do donate. Not just blood mind you. Im also on the organ donor register, have donated plasma as well as double red. Im in school right now learning to be a paramedic. Breast cancer is the most researched and donated to cause in the world. Its why its survival rate is so high. While pancreatic cancer, which primarily affects men, is barely mentioned. It even has a higher mortality rate. But i digress.
Love how you glossed over the nice tex write off incentive to donate to your favorite charity. You cant just throw money at a problem and hope it goes away. Sometimes it takes action to get things done. Imagine if everyone was as selfish, self centered and egotistical like a lot of the responses i got. No one would donate and the death count would sky rocket. Good thing most people arnt.
@Pseudonymble , Awww my dear child. Im not skewing anything. The facts speak for themselves. I said the excuses can be made as to why financial donation is not a person's primary choice. Their are tangible consequences for just giving your money away. With no real way of knowing where it goes. That is a fact. And again. Im thinking you have never known anyone personally who needed a blood transfusion. Good for you. Thats great. Must be nice in that glass house. But, and i hope it never happens, when it is some one you care about on the table, and theres a blood shortage you remember this conversation. Go ahead and throw money at the doctor's. Cause according to you money solves everything 😂 It just conjures up blood, bone marrow, hearts, livers and kidney's.
I cant even believe im having this conversation. Yea donating money is great. But it doesnt really solve anything does it? The person who needed the money? Will probably still need the money. Smh.
@LaDarkProphet, I deleted the @ because I needed more room, I thought it still notified you, my bad. I don’t care if people get a tax write off, as long as you’re still helping people... I don’t really care if you donate or not, morally I don’t believe it’s anybody’s responsibility to donate anything. As long as you are kind to the people you meet, try to help out when you can in your own personal life, and just overall are a decent human then I believe you’re morally good. My point was merely that I find it funny how you judge people so harshly for not donating blood, but don’t judge others as harshly for not putting forth effort in others areas that could help people equally as much. That’s all.
@LaDarkProphet, My brother had a major surgery and needed a blood transfusion. That doesn’t make people morally corrupt for not donating blood.
@Pseudonymble , O and as i said previously, i dont think people who refuse to donate are bad people. I think their selfish, self centered cunts. But not bad people. Most human are selfish, self centered cunts. Doesnt make em bad people. Keep that in mind boyo.
@LaDarkProphet, And donating money does solve issues. Our world runs on money like it or not, you could get somebody clean food and water, or a filtration system for a village and save hundreds of lives, I’m saying you’re skewing facts because you keep saying that money donations won’t do anything but that’s blatantly untrue.
@Pseudonymble , Good. Then you know how important it is. Imagine that whoever donated the blood that saves your brothers life didnt. No excuse. Just didnt. Your brother would be dead. And you would be without a sibling. Keep that in mind. Blood donation has real tangible benefits. You see it every day. Lifes are saved with just 20 minutes of your time. While donating money is good in theory, in practice who knows how long it takes for your money to go where its needed. Or even how much. I agree. Donating in general is good. Be it time, money, blood or even just having an open ear in case someone needs to talk. But, im still going to think that those who have no legitimate excuse to donate blood are selfish cunts.
If that makes me a bad person, or an a hole, or a cunt or whatever ad hominem, derogatory remark people want to throw on me, fine. No sweat off my brow ^-^.
@LaDarkProphet, Um what the hell are you talking about? I don’t believe that my blood is tethered to me... I said I don’t like the responsibility of saving an unknown persons life, blood transfusions are used indiscriminately so it could save a convicted murderers life and then he could kill somebody... would I actually be responsible? No but it would indirectly be because of me. That’s unlikely but not irrational. Also I understand how karma works but clearly he was wishing something bad upon since he stated that he thought my choices were wrong. I don’t even know where you got anything to do with “mental illness”... And finally your understanding of how monetary donations work (or lack there of) is ridiculous. You’re not even worth a discussion. Have a nice day.
@LaDarkProphet, I don’t need to insult you, your logic is just flawed and I’m amazed that you can’t see it. I guess when people are stuck in their ways they can’t see anything but their own truth... also obviously donating blood is good, I never said it wasn’t. You want me to imagine that my brother didn’t get the transfusion? Done. It would be terrible but I wouldn’t even think of blaming somebody for not donating blood, that isn’t their responsibility and they didn’t kill him. You’re clearly going to judge people harshly who don’t donate, whatever. What I find weird is that you judge those people more harshly than any other group, maybe you had a trauma or something, I don’t know. Doesn’t really matter.
@Blasphemy is Fun, That actually is irrational. Your talking about a butterfly effect syndrome and that kind of thinking is irrational. By definition. Its the same thought process of, your slighted someone and they get pissed off, drank themselves into a stupor and killed a family of five because he was drunk driving. That your fault or his fault? Your thinking is retarded and flawed. Your right. Your not worth a discussion. Good day.
@Pseudonymble , My logic is sound. Dont see what your confused about. Its simple math my boy. 4.5 million Americans would die each year if people stopped donating blood. Outright dead. No if, ands, or buts. Do not pass go, do not live long enough to debate morality. (Which btw is asinine as morality is subjective to begin with. I think its wrong to not donate. You don't. Doesnt make either of us a bad person. And nice strawman. I never said it would be the persons fault for your brother dying because he didnt donate. It wouldnt be his fault. Thats as obvious as water being wet.)
Back on track. 45 million. Dead. Every year. Now. If everyone stopped donating what would happen? Well see, thats the kicker. Thats impossible to say. How beneficial financial donating is or is not is irrelevant because its impossible to say how effective it is. Thats a empirical fact. But what i can see is the 100% chance that my blood, if used, will go to save a life. As i said. Its a number game. (One sec)
@Pseudonymble , Again thats just looking at the numbers as they stand. Trying to be as unbiased as possible.
Additionally, another straw man. I judge people who live well above their means who dont donate at far worse. If you make excesses of 75k and are quite comfortable and you still refuse to donate at all then your not just a selfish cunt. Your a scum fvck at that point. See the difference is, i can see why a single mother of 5 wont financially donate. You apparently cant understand context. I still think that mother, if she can, should donate blood. And if she doesnt have a legitimate medical excuse then i think she is being selfish. You however cant seem to understand why she may not feel inclined to donate monetarily. And that my friend, is what I AM confused about.
@Blasphemy is Fun, O and since your agaisnt it. Do not, ever, agree to have a blood transfusion. Even to save your life. Otherwise your a hypocrite, and who frankly probably doesn't deserve that transfusion anyway. Smh. I absolutely pity your mentality. If everyone was as selfish as you... i shudder to think about it. Good thing most people are not like you.
Was this supposed to be funny?
@Vonheppenhiem, i exhaled sharply
If you're blood is O- it's kinda fu¢ked up not to donate blood to potentially save someone else's life and potentially keep families whole.
@ Ump89, it's fantastic to donate universal blood, but no one should be morally obligated to donate any parts of their body to anyone, let alone strangers. If I don't want to donate semen to help barren families have children, I shouldn't have to. If I want to cut my hair, but not donate it to child cancer patients, I shouldn't have to either. I know neither of these equate to saving a life, but if I don't want a stranger to have part of me on/in them, social stigma should not be applied to me for having these wishes.
@Pyvin, I guess that's fair. I asked not to donate organs in the case that I died and someone could use them because that's kinda gross to think about. Blood isn't as big a deal in my mind, but I understand that.
@ Ump89, he is not obligated to donate anything. If he is uncomfortable with donating then he shouldn't donate, and noone has any right to criticize him for that. You could donate 10% of your paycheck to a charity organization, but will you? Probably because you dont want to give your money away for others to use, just like he doesn't want to give his blood away for others to use. It's not fvcked up, it's just how they feel. Also anything can potentially save people's lives, if you want to potentially save lives you can volunteer at a food bank, or a medical center. Or you could sell a kidney for Gods sake! That's saving lives! You can do things to help people that are still within what you feel comfortable with.
@ Ump89, Jesus, you’re seriously judging somebody else when you won’t even donate stuff after you die? That seems seriously fvcked up to me, but you can do what you want, as can ‘Ol Blasphemy.
@TheCoolestBean, I'm not disagreeing with you, but comparing donating blood to donating 10% isnt a fair comparison. I'd sell a pint of blood for a 10% pay increase any day.
@Pyvin, so should a mother be obligated to donate her body and life for 9 months for the life of a child?
@jouze, Yes, because there are many steps prior she could have taken to prevent the pregnancy. It was her decision to get pregnant in the first case. And don't bring up rape babies. They're like 2% of abortions, and adoption exists.
@ Ump89, I tried to remove my downvote from your comment, but now it just says I've both upvoted and downvoted, and I can't change it. For the record, I have donated blood, but there's a plasma donation place in town that pays you to donate, and for some reason I can't get over literally selling my body like that, even if it's for a good cause.
Edit: it fixed itself.
@Pyvin, so you think because someone engages in a dangerous activity they sacrifice their right to bodily autonomy? There's plenty of steps reckless drivers can take before they get in a car crash but we can't force them to donate their organs, and they're dead
@jouze, I'm really not seeing a correlation here. One is partaking in an activity that creates a life, then choosing to end it. You can say "I want my body to remain intact after I die." You can't say "I want to have unprotected sex and not have to deal with any consequences." Consequences are linked to every action in life. The consequences of reckless driving are potentially fatal. The consequences of sexual intercourse are potentially a child. You don't get to choose the consequences of an action any more than you can choose to end the life of another for convenience.
Here's a fun one for the mix. If you simply refuse to donate because you don't want to, or don't like the idea of your blood in someone else, will you accept blood if you need it for medical reasons?
@TheMonkeyGod, Excellent question. There is a person who is of that very same mindset above. I need to ask him that. Good thinking.
@LaDarkProphet, that's the thing. These people are willing to take, but not willing to give. I think they should be linked
I would donate blood, but I can't. I was born in Bosnia in the 90s during NATO bombings. Due to that, I get shoo'd away
I donated once, I got a letter in the mail saying I can’t donate. Found out my mother was a hep B carrier and I came down with Hep B before I was immunized so I still have the antigen, although it is very unlikely anyone would contract it from my blood, they take a 0% chance. If it wasn’t for that I would donate as much as I could.
I'm pretty sure the red cross is a front organization for (((vampires))).
Honestly I think ladarkprophet at this point is a troll, he blocked me after a petty argument like this one a while back and they always seem to try and force their views on them.
@Gerbosou, I suspect other underlying issues. He's frankly argued (on the illogical end most of the time) with the majority of commenters on this app. He gets my pity.
@Gerbosou, I habe never blocked anyone before in my life. I dont even know how to block people. So, tell me cupcake. Gunna spread more lies? ;)
@OfficialNyarlathotep, Awww really? And here i thought we were buddies :( Dont need your pity though. Every argument ive ever made is logical for the most part. If you care to refute that, then pls. Do try. Im not a troll. Im just honest and not afraid to speak my mind. Im not here to win a popularity contest. If i see someone i disagree with ima call it out fair and simple. Dont like it? Censor me. Block me, report me etc. Doesnt change anything.
Me and my brother are universal donors and donated for about two years (him 3 years) until he couldn't anymore because his iron got too low and they refused to take his blood and my blood pressure started getting bad so i nearly passed out twice in a row. It was a demoralizing summer
I dont like this.
@LaDarkProphet, judgemental? Sure, I can be, but who's to say that I'm not being honest in the observation that I've made.
@M0RT0S, I did admit i was a cunt ^-^
Oh good another flame war meme... could we.. idk... not?
My friends mom got permanent nerve damage from donating blood so in turn my friend is afraid to donate blood. It's not all selfishness.
