That explains why a mate swore he could always climb a grade harder for a few days after donating!

One downside of having lovely big veins is that sooner or later they'll want to let the apprentice practice on you...

What freaks me out the most though is the average age of donors - plenty appear to be 70+! If you want to increase the likliehood of getting nice, fresh, juicy young blood packed full of oxygen carrying goodies, get in there and donate.
