Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Just a few days ago, I recommended using beer as an enticement for urine donations.

The idea there was to provide the beer, then collect the piss. A reversal of that would be to collect blood donations, then offer a voucher for beer.

Hudgins said the vouchers handed out in Cleveland can be used for any beverage in the city’s Warehouse District, a collection of trendy bars, night clubs and restaurants near downtown.

But beer or any other kind of alcohol is an option, as long as the donor is over the legal age of 21 and waits at least 24 hours after giving blood to drink alcohol. Giving blood leaves people dehydrated, so the alcohol could have an extra strong effect too soon after donating.

I know that the prospect of getting wasted with greater ease after dropping a pint was a big incentive to donate in college. Some of us find more altruistic motivation later in life; then again, most of us don’t.
