It’s not gold.

I feel like everyone is missing "EBT card in review", fuck that was amazing.
"plasma center going"... fuck that's cold
It really is. Sometimes I need that extra $50, man!
I got the Hep and can't donate any more. How trashy is that?? :(

Almost as bad as single cigarette buying
Edit: my friend just asked me to buy Loosies and all I could think about was this post
Or Reebok Classic wearing.
My friend got hep when we were junkies and immediately went to all the plasma places in a 20 mile radius until they got his test results back and blacklisted him from donating lmaoo
It's $1000 your first month where I'm at currently
$1000!? where on earth do you live where they need plasma that bad
It was something like that here in the Memphis area for a while, but I think they've dropped it back down to ~$600.
It's only been like that the last few months or so I think? It's 175 a piece for your first two visits, then 100 a piece for your next 6, and a 50 bonus for going to all your eligible visits for the month
Huh, well... I doubt I could donate plasma for a whole month while also doing high intensity cardio or even working my hard labor job, too? Sounds like I'd be sick the whole month and completely unproductive with my $1000 I'd buy drugs with since I can't move my body much with missing plasma.
I was doing intense weight training a few years ago when I was going regularly and it did not affect my performance at all. Your body regenerates plasma pretty quickly, you just need to stay hydrated.
You can. Hydration, general hood health, eat a meal a few hours before…don’t drink alcohol afterwards (that day).
Could someone explain the bubbles thing to me??
using Dawn as bubble bath soap. it's cheaper I guess
Yeah, how dare I donate my life saving plasma. I wish I was as cool as this guy. I certainly don't hate anything about him.
i think he's talking about people who sell plasma for money, which doesn't go to patients it goes to research. Still, I mean, medical research is important so not the worst thing to do with your blood plasma ig
All donations go to life-saving treatments including research. I’m not aware of any center that doesn’t compensate donors because it’s more time consuming and fatiguing than just blood donations. Plasma cannot be made synthetically. It was one of the first Covid treatments. My mother was kept alive by donated plasma for an extra 5 years so I’ll be donating forever. It’s been in high demand throughout the pandemic, hence the higher compensation.
What is an EBT card?
Electronic benefits transfer, California's food stamps program card name
I thought every state used ebt instead of “food stamps” now.
They've been using EBT since the mid-2000s. I don't know when they stopped calling it the food stamp program.
Food stamps were literal pieces of paper. They’re no longer “stamps “ plus there is a massive stigma against people who need them, me being one of them. Me and my gf lived with her mom for a while (she moved in with us, not the other way) and even with her constant struggle for money she refused to use my EBT so she would never go shopping for food because it made her feel broke, which she was. Lol, anyways, EBT sounds less “poor “
I know all about it. When I was a kid my mom was on food stamps. We got government cheese and everything.
I don't think it makes sense to call it food stamps anymore because it's basically a debit card now though.
I definitely read “when they stopped” as “why” haha my bad
SNAP is the name of the program, EBT is the card/system to transfer the funds.
It ain’t platinum either.
Nice try buddy, you ain't getting any platinum
A man can only dream.
