Bitterwallet - sold kidney for ipadHoly shitcakes. We like gadgets as much as the next man, but there are limits:

"A teenager in Huaishan, Anhui Province has sold one of his kidneys to buy an iPad2 tablet computer, as reported by SZTV on June 1.

"The 17-year-old man surnamed Zheng, a freshman in high school, got connected with a kidney-selling agent through the internet, who pledged to pay him 20,000 yuan ($3,084.45 ) for one of his kidneys.

"On April 28 of this year, Zheng went to Chenzhou, Hunan Province to have his kidney removed under the supervision of three so-called middlemen, and received 22,000 yuan ($3,392.97). Then he returned home with a laptop and an iPhone.

"Zheng's mother discovered her son's new electronic products and forced him to reveal how he came to afford them. Then she took Zheng to Chenzhou and reported the matter to local police. The three agents' telephones have not been answered since that time."

Expect part two of this story to reveal that the teenager also sold his liver to Steve Jobs in return for a Macbook Air.

    Absolutely. Even Apple fanbois aren't that retarded. Probably.

    No way real, it way hard to remove a kidney not a knife jockey can do. Plus finding a tissue match is rare too.
