Man donates kidney in exchange for Apple gadgetry

7 April 2012

kindey1 We’ve all seen a desirable item at one point or another that has caused us to say ‘Wow – I’d give my right arm for that!’. Over in China, a teenager recently took it a step further said ‘An iPhone and an iPad? Wow – I’d give my kidney for that!’ in an internet chatroom.

The teen, whose surname is Wang, duly went ahead with the procedure, and received $3,000 for his troubles, which he duly spent on the Apple gadgetry. Sadly, he now has renal failure, but he’s gotten really got at Angry Birds.

Wang’s kidney was procured through an internet chatroom and the shady group who lured him into it have been arrested. They did much better out of the deal, receiving $35,000.

There is a constant shortage of organ donors in China, with 1.5 million people needing transplants and only 10,000 performed each year. Also, modern gadgetry is unaffordable for most people in China, so you can see why Wang went to the lengths that he did.

Stupid Wang.

    Stupid Wang with renal failure. Ha ha. Nice to see you getting a cheap laugh through a callous lack of concern for someone else because they live in another country and aren't you. Glad the world's so messed up you find things like this so hilarious. Shame on you, Andy Dawson. Still, I've had a word with God and he's said you're going to die of cancer. Ha ha.

    Surely the reason he is in that predicament is down to God, seeing as he/she is apparently omnipotent and omniprescent ? All kids born terminally ill are down to him as well. But that's god "working in mysterious ways". Oh and of course if youy don't believe that, you'll burn in hell.

    Yet another example of a complete lack of proof reading in the main article, 'gotten really got at angry birds'. Come on, if you're going to post crap stories, at least proof read the crap you're writing.

    A new app is soon to be released that can locate your closest wasps nest, helping you to stay safe and sting-free. The app works as every wasp nest in the world contains a unique chemical which can be ‘read’ by Google Maps.
