    Thanks for the very detailed answer in that one - I kinda imagined the did a 'in/out connection' and basically filtered out the plasma and put the other stuff back in (possibly with some saline...???)

    Yeah I think you'd even want to drink whilst doing it

    Also thanks to the other responses from everyone.

    I might have one more question coming up - if i could continue the inquiry.....

    Not much moving around while it's "doing"... a big thing IN one arm, and OUT the other... being still is good.

    I tried to donate last year. While filling out the questionnaire, I came across the question about ever having been in Italy between the years 1980 and 19##, which I had. That apparently disqualified me due to the potential of mad cow disease or something. I told them I never saw any mad cows on the base where I was stationed, but I had come across a few mad CWOs (Chief Warrant Officers). That didn't satisfy the requirement unfortunately. hrmph!

    Same here, having lived in the uk during the same period.

    A 2nd knockout is because I'm gay. Though the blood center goes to great pains to say they do not discriminate due to sexuality, but they won't accept male donors that have had sex with other males in the past 5 years. So nothing to do with being gay then...

    Also tried to damage blood marrow, but they follow the same rules.

    I can't, not for another year anyway, I lived in a Malaria endemic region for a while. On my two year anniversary back, I am going to donate though.
