    Do You Donate Your Blood?

    Just curiosity ... have you donated your blood? If yes or no ... any particular reasons for that?

    PS: I'm aware that all countries don't have similar systems.

    I do that regularly. My own blood type is AB Rh+. AB bloods are rare everywhere in the world. AB is also the newest blood type of humans; by big margin....it is less than 2000 years old mutation.

    In Finland local Red Cross's blood service collects and storages bloods. I can follow their present storage situation via internet. Not today (6.1.2019), but they often misses exactly AB bloods.
    https://www.bloodservice.fi/


    Blood is material which can not be storages very long periods. Here the system bases purely on voluntary ... so you ain't gonna get any payment for doing that (just a bit juice to drink... LOL). So teamwork and goodwill is needed ... just like in their funny video:


    I went to donate my blood last time now at Friday.

    Oh, am I the only one here?

    LOL, maybe I'm not that beastly person after all (polite words are just words; the real action counts) => maybe I'm actually quite good person?

    I think donating blood is a very selfless act, Finnish Swede.

    But in answer to your question, no, I haven't donated blood, and the reason is very selfish: I cannot stand needles!

    I am O-.

    While I don't ordinarily donate blood, my operator's license is marked 'organ donor'.

    Does this count for something?

    I don't see how it is a mutation or a newer type. If one parent is A (AA or AO) and the other is B (BB or BO) then they can have a child that is AB. Each parent passes down 1 of their 2 at random, each time they have a child. If one parent is AB then they can also have a child with AB, unless the other parent is OO. Then each child would be either AO or BO. B is just less common overall, so it makes AB even less common.

    Just because humans AB blood ''has existed'' only 1600 - 2000 years. Before that there were no AB blood humans .... but there were humans with O, A or B bloods. And already pretty long time (we know humans history). The other blood groups are tens of thousands of years old with B being more recent than A. The oldest group is either group A or one of the forms of group O.

    I could see B being more recent, thus AB would also be as a result of that. Relatively speaking.

    You are free to think/believe whatever you want. Your rights....

    But opposite to now argue about this quite inessential/irrelevant detail ... I would like to know then you last time donated your blood?

    I'm an "O" also. Keep in mind, you can give blood to anybody but you can't receive A or B, it has to be O. This can be dangerous for us in a case of an accident when a transfusion is necessary immediately. I have given blood many times in my life even body to body to my father.
