I think that those questions should be asked for health reasons along with many more. They also require you to be a certain weight before you can give blood around here. I know alot of people that give blood on a regular basis, but I am not one of them. It's not that I don't want to help others, I absolutely hate needles, so my being anemic AND having tattoos just comes in handy :P

i agree with you on the needles. besides that i guess the other part that i dont like is the gettin a physical part. havent had good experiences w/docs.
