These statistics are always fascinating to me. The information is always very interesting.

I wonder why the statistics for organ donation are so low? A little over 200 people? Thats horrible. I dont have a drivers licence etc, so no one really knows if I want to donate my organs or not.

I totally do, but I have some rules. *LOL* Sort of like when you are in someones will and they have a clause where if it was you that killed them, you get nothing.

You don't need a clause in your will. You cannot inherit if found guilty of murder/manslaughter.

You don't need a driver's licence. You need a Australian Organ Donor Register card.

Awesome!! I might just do that then.

The rest of me is totally getting fried and scattered someplace pretty though... Why go to all that effort of burying someone? Seems like a weird waste to me.

Nah I dont want that much stuff done to me. If I can help save someone's life through my poor battered liver, then I'm happy enough.

I've already donated myself to FABULOUSNESS!! *sparkle!*

I think if we were better educated about it, then a lot more people would do it. I mean, youre dead... what good are they to you any more?

Ah! I'm left handed, and tried in vain to learn the piano... but had to resort to the kazoo. So I dont think the organ is going to be any good to me :P

I was just re-reading this...I didn't realise you were going to be gone for that long. Are you working on a professional level, or still working on the property?

Also, with the organ doner bit: can we do this? I know the Red Cross won't take my blood because I'm a filthy promiscuous homosexual, but would this not apply to organ donation as well?

Also part deux...Happy early Birthday! *kiss*

Professional.
The property is in NSW.
You can go on the register...your HIV status is worked out should they have an organ match.
Thanks.
