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?
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

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.
