    The UK’s Daily Mail newspaper reports today that a 17-year-old Chinese boy has sold his kidney to raise enough money to buy an iPad 2. When Xiao Zheng wasn’t able to afford the device, he decided to sell his kidney after seeing an ad on the internet that said it would pay people for their healthy kidney. According to the Mail, Zheng’s mother was “horrified†by her son’s actions, and the story has caused a furore in China.

    Zheng had his kidney removed at a local hospital in Chenzhou, Hunan Province at the end of April, and subsequently received 20,000 yuan (£1,884/$3080). He was well enough to leave hospital after three days, and went straight out and bought an iPad 2 and an iPhone with the money. When Zheng returned home his mother wanted to know where he had got the money from and he eventually confessed that he had sold a kidney. The Mail reports that Zheng has since had medical “complications.†Police were alerted to the matter, but could not find any of the men responsible for the operation.

    At least he got an iPad out of it... When I woke up in that hotel room's bath tub full of ice the other day, I had nothing to show for it but a scar. ;)

    I thought about donating my left "kidney?..." for an iPad 2, but decided to hold out six months for the next generation.

    That's crazy!! I'd rather work my ass out than giving away my kidney for someone I do not know.
