Ever since I found out about the revolutionary potential of bitcoin, I've been ruminating on how the hypothetical AnCapistan will deal with certain issues.

After reading this article about a 17y.o. that sold his kidney to buy an iPad 2  Shocked - http://thenextweb.com/apple/2011/06/02/chinese-student-reportedly-sells-his-kidney-to-buy-an-ipad-2/ -I was thinking that if I needed a transplant I'd rather not get it from a kid who might not know the implications of his decisions.

So I was wondering if the market can come up with a more "humane" way of providing organs for those in need. It would be possible for a car/life insurance company to offer reduced premiums in exchange for your organs if you die in a car crash. Depending on the price of organs as dictated by the market, you might not even need to pay car/life insurance anymore. This could be very beneficial to young people as they have relatively higher insurance premiums.

What do you think of this idea?

With no rules against it, A headless human clone farm wouldn't be too far-fetched, or for that matter, we're almost at the point where we can grow (or print! Google 'clemson university bio printer') your organs to spec.

Printing organs ? Why not? It is better than long clone process of them. Faster for shure.

We will  meet in not-so-distant future.
