How far would you go to get an iPad and iPhone? Well, a kid in China sold his kidney…beat that! The 17 year old, only known as Wang, did the deal from an online chatroom. Unfortunately there’s no app to stop renal failure. The people involved, including a surgeon, got paid $35,000 while the kidneyless kid got a mere $3,500 for his troubles. His mother suspected something was up when Wang rocked up with the Apple products and was turning friggin yellow! Hmm, should have got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, then mom wouldn’t have suspected a thing.

Riccardo “Cobra” Ricco, an Italian cyclist, is in hospital with kidney failure after he allegedly gave himself a blood transfusion with a three week old sample. Sheez, I wouldn’t even touch three week old bread for goodness sakes. Anywho, serious concerns are now being raised about “doping” within the Vacansoleil-DCM team. Ricco was banned from cycling for 20 months in 2008 after testing positive for a blood booster during the Tour de France and was on the comeback trail. If found guilty of doping Ricco may face three years jail. He currently remains in a serious condition in hospital.
