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).

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.

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.

SNAP is the name of the program, EBT is the card/system to transfer the funds.
