    I'd happily produce some juice for £18... Problem is I'm probably exempt as I occasionally take drugs.

    I'd sell a kidney! I was gonna save it in case my twin ever needed it and I could save her life and she'd be eternally grateful.

    But then, hey, it could also fund my last year of uni. (Damn foreign student fees!)

    So.... where do I sign?

    After four years at Uni I can safely say that selling a kidney or donating eggs is definitely appealing. Would probably do a bit of research into it first but it's tempting. Having said that I'm a bit of a wimp and probably wouldn't go through with it .... but all that money would pay off all my debts!!! How good would that be?

    My sperm's going nowhere! Well, you know what i mean <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Nah, I couldn't bear the thought of having some kid running around with my DNA! Technically, it would be an estranged son or daughter and I'd want to know what it was like! No, sorry, no can do.
