China will kill you and sell your liver

Well, potentially.

I thought this was cool from a horror aspect and completely messed up from all other possible aspects, which means it fits this forum pretty well:

Are you sure it's not a hoax? Maybe I'm just too suspicious, but this has raised the needle on my crap-o-meter to ten... Suspect

Why a bus? I mean, that makes no sense. Haha.

I'm with you. Ying is from China, and we're always surprised at the stuff people think goes on there Shocked

Haha - maybe I'm just desensitised or incredibly naive. With all the crazy stuff online, it didn't even seem that far outside of the realm of possibility to me. I looked around a bit, though, and turns out it's extensively reported here in a USA Today article from 2006, and there are a couple more sources listed in the Wikipedia article here. Looks like it's genuine. (Though obviously the actual organ harvesting is still up in the air.)

(It was late when I posted this - I should've probably looked for a more reliable source than Geekologie. Sorry about that!)

It's explained in the USA Today article. It's... still pretty cracky, though. scratch

Wow.... how weird then.

I don't know. Obviously, if the person is going to die anyways, using their organs for transplant makes good sense on it's face, but it's an ethical minefield.

That's where the whole freedom of choice thing comes in. I mean, sure, I'm an organ donor, but hopefully I'm not going to meet my demise in some dark Bus O' Death. I don't know, though. Vegas is nuts.

That's a little too Charlie the Unicorn for me.

I showed Ying the bus. He said it's for transporting people to court. I wouldn't be surprised is some information got lost in translation or someone flat out lied to the American news sources.

You just don't believe what you read on the 'Net.

Unless it's totally awesome, because awesome things are always true.

And here I thought it was unsuspecting bus passengers that were arriving at their destinations missing a few choice organs. Talk about a steep fee! Imagine would a monthly pass would cost.
