    ahem.
    Oh. I didn't know that, I was thinking of kidneys and lungs.

    Well, then one of them should really give him a piece, if they can. Unless they want him to die.

    Surely they wouldn't refuse to allow them to donate a piece of their liver for that purpose?

    "The only cure for stupidity is death" - Fey Valentine

    It does suck that such a law is in place; but to drink enough in such a short amount of time to damage ones liver that badly... Sometimes Darwin needs to be right. *sigh*
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    But just goes to show how the stupidity of people screw over those who really did need that liver. He'll live with the dunce hat on his head for the rest of his crappy life.

    Gareth's father Brian Anderson said his son is totally unaware that his days are numbered.

    "We haven't told him and we are not going to tell him," he said.

    That means, this kid is completely unaware of the seriousness of his condition.
    That kid probably wasn't even told not to drink, because his parents kept him in the dark.
    That makes his parents negligent idiots.

    Frankly, I think there is much more to this story than meets the eye.
    I cannot render a final opinion, without all the relevant facts.
    This kid could have an auto-immune disease that attacked his liver,
    or for all we know, be an undiagnosed diabetic with liver problems.

    The whole story has gaping holes in it.
    To pass judgment on the kid without knowing the truth, is reckless.

    If this is a rule, how did Larry Hagman get six livers? Did he and George Jones have a liver-growing operation set up somewhere?

    What the HELL! The doctors should not just be giving the information to the Parents and in fact THEY should not be informed unless the kid wants them to know. He's an adult for god's sake! Not a very responsible adult, but an adult nonetheless! Give the man his diagnosis!

    This is what I was thinking, with how it was possible for the kid's liver to give out at 19. I've never heard of this happening, and I've been through thorough United States anti-alcohol indoctrination, so I think I would have.
