Only later did the guy realise it wasn't worth an appendix, let alone a kidney.

I think this is the point where Steve Jobs should seriously consider exile from society.

Well, he said "I see," so if he never sees you, he's all good. He just needs to wear a blindfold for the rest of his life.

Wait, wait, wait.

$3000?

Seriously? For a kidney?

They're worth WAY more than that.

I think the real issue here is that the kid doesn't know how to haggle.

My mum mentioned this earlier today. I figured she was just making it up.

Kind of sad... but mostly funny. What a fool.

Huh... I know what I'd sell a kidney for, and it's definitely not electronic toys; not any toys, for that matter.

I wouldn't even sell a kidney for a D3X! Lord knows if the other kidney failed it'd cost more than 10grand in dialysis and surgeries.

So glad I'm on the NHS if that happened. Sure I may get MRSA and cold food but it's a small price to pay.

I think it's 144th in the world. In the 80s they got rid of universal health care. They're trying to get it back.

To form a white plastic islands with technology far beyond what we have. Then they sell it to us and make millions off the mainland! This sounds like that one bit in The Animatrix...
