Boy regrets selling his kidney to buy iPad
*LMAO* stupid fuck.

"A 17-year-old student in Anhui Province sold one of his kidneys for 20,000 yuan only to buy an iPad 2. Now, with his health getting worse, the boy is feeling regret but it is too late, the Global Times reported today.

"I wanted to buy an iPad 2 but could not afford it," said the boy surnamed Zheng in Huaishan City. "A broker contacted me on the Internet and said he could help me sell one kidney for 20,000 yuan."

On April 28 Zheng went to Chenzhou City in neighboring Hunan Province for the kidney removal surgery arranged by the broker. His parents knew nothing about it, Zheng said. He was paid 22,000 yuan after his right kidney was taken out at the Chenzhou No. 198 Hospital."

Sad considering all of the people out there that actually need a kidney. He could have at least died for something good.

I wonder who got his kidney?

I feel bad for this boy. Hopefully he can be an example of what not to do for other teens.

I think the millions of people who bought an iPad are also regretting it but just won't admit it.

They say "It's a consumpitve device, dammit. You don't do actual useful things with it you only consume Apple media crap and surf the Web."
