    To clarify things,

    No you can't get your kidney back. Kidney transplants are irreversible because the kidney, like any other transplant organ, dies within 10-20 years. Recipients have get new transplants every 10 or so years.

    You also can't give your kidney to just anybody. Chances of your kidney being suitable for donating to your SO (anybody unrelated to you) is like <1%. Your blood and antigen type must be a close match for avoid organ rejection. Even then you'll be on heavy immunosuppression therapy.

    I'm still young... at this stage if somebody under age 45 (whom I consider to be of work-wise productive age) is in need of a kidney and I'm a match, I'd think about donating. After say 40 or something though, no. I'm not sure if I want to risk an unnecessarily surgery then. More chances of complications when you're older...

    I'm going to be an organ donor (when I update my license.. I'm too lazy to go to the DMV's twice, so I hope I don't die between now and then.) so I don't care who gets my parts once I'm gone. If blind kids get to see, and people get to live because of parts that are going to decay anyways, it's all the better. My soul isn't in my kidneys, they can both go after that.

    Before that though, I'd restrict it to close family and friends.. but like. Even if I had a friend, and they were like "gimmah yo kidkneez!" and I was like "omgk" and then they got all mean afterwards and we didn't talk anymore. I don't think I'd regret the decision. If it were my SO I wouldn't even think twice. Just like if they became blind, I'd share one of my eyes..

    Eh? Then they'd owe you a hefty sum of money and a kidney? Or did you mean to avoid them dying so they can pay you back that money? I suppose you could use your kidney as leverage..

    Maybe I'll sell my kidney on eBay. I will become filthy rich and able to pay for my college education.

    I think people should be allowed to sell their body parts. Why donate something when you can make a little on the side?

    I wouldn't give any organ to anyone, period. Perhaps when I die, but i'd rather not.
    Irrational pagan belief in the afterlife stands against it. Even the possibility of having to live for an eternity without two working kidneys would be pretty depressing.
