Today I gave some blood. Whilst laying there with my life blood running out of me I pondered how quickly one eighth of what keeps me alive can trickle out into a plastic bag. I was just musing on the idea of what would happen if the nurse forgot what she was doing and just left me to drain out completely, and it was all over and time for tea and biscuits. Although they make to lay there for a while and won't let you jump up and run over to the biscuit table.

In my haste to get to the biscuits forgot to ask my question... I know we are supposed to have eight pints of blood in us but I know some very small people and some very big people... They can't all have the same amount of blood, can they?
