    Reminds me of the good ol’ days - a decade back

    I don’t have any pics left, but yes - straight into a one liter bottle

    Going to the blood bank is easier tho, it’s on my block - they don’t care about anything, u meet cool old folk & get free pretzels

    Omg I would freakin pass out seeing that blood come out of me. I don’t like to look when they stab me neither… I guess I’m a puss.

    I've known guys that the sight of blood never bothered them and then one day it just gets to them.

    The freaky/fun part is watching 2 pints turn to Jell-O in under 25 minutes.

    It was actually more of a pain in the ass to do it at home, since I don't have any anticoagulants or anything - It wouldn't flow that well

    Here ya go TM, consider it an early Valentineís Day greeting.

    Generally I donate to the Red Cross, this time I saved time by not having to drive. Damn, I liked that t-shirt too, the spray & wash let me down on that one.

    Now that I know you aren't dieing, I realize you kind of look like Ric Flair after Wrestlemania... any of the ones he was in.

    Though with your hair color, you could be Cactus Jack / Mankind if you prefer

    Lol. Yup not dieting for about 18 months there, thanks for rubbing it in. I think I know who Ric Flair is, but the only wrestling Iíve seen since the 60ís was the movie ďThe WrestlerĒ. Donít know the other guys, will do the google thing.

    DIE-ING, man, not dieT-ing. That pic looks like it came from the same series you used in your "New Years Prank" on Davi and I. Had us worried!

    Google "1998 hell in a cell" for some of Mankind's more extreme work. Some of the intros are kind of heavy handed, but once the action gets started it's like.... well, no spoilers! Just peep it if you have time.

    I just spit wine out of my nose laughing! OMG, dementia or dyslexia, take your pick.

    Yup, same incident. In all seriousness, my wife is considering hiring a baby sitter at night when she travels with her friends this week. Doesnít want me to pull a Bob Sagat.

    Sorry Davi to hijack, itís Red Cross only for me.

    I BUMP that thread,
    Hello everyone,

    I would dream to do a self phlebotomy myself alone at home but :

    1) I have no idea how to do it
    2) I have no material

    I could eventually pay to get help, does anybody here could coach me for that ? I tried in my bathroom in the bathtub with just a needle. I thought it was going to flow easily but I had a lot of issues :

    1) I missed the vein 5 times
    2) When I hit the vein, the needle was too deep and after too close and left the vein and only 1 mL dropped
    3) It has bleeded INSIDE my arm and left a huge dark spot deep inside.

    It's sooo hard to do, is there any tutorial ?

    Also is it supposed to flow outside the vein or you are supposed to do something special ? like having a tube and aspirate to get negative pressure, or anything else ?


    You will laugh but...... I pin inside ma nose with a needle after I disinfect with ethanol and let it bleed drop after drop in a graduated bottle while watching a movie. After 3 hours I have 450 mL / 1 pint

    Man, I think you may have more issues than needing to dump some blood going on

    Be careful man this is no joke you can loose too much blood, pass out and die. The process shouldnt be too compplicated i think, just go donate blood, see what the nurse does and repeat at home? The tools neccesary should be mail orderable
