I've carried an organ donor card most of my adult life.  As I get older, I'm not sure how many of my bits would be useful to other people, but I certainly won't need them.

If my heart/lungs/corneas/kidneys/whatever, can help someone else live a better life, then it's a very easy thing to do.

The poll will only work for people with a DW account (I may well renew my LF paid account as well, but there's reasons why I don't want to do that for a few weeks yet).

If you're only on LJ, feel free to comment in the replies.

I know people who don't donate for various reasons - it doesn't mean you're a bad person, if you feel squeamish about someone cutting up your body after you're dead.  Nor does it make you bad, if you're scared that the life support will be turned off earlier than you might wish.  I'm okay with both of these, but that doesn't mean that everyone else is.

This is a poll that does actually serve some purpose, and may be useful to a friend of mine.  Note that the questions are deliberately vague.  I didn't want to have a list of items to match against each organisation as that's a leading question.  I want to see how much the average SF reader knows without any prompting.[Poll #1439063][Poll #1439063]

I've just been asked if I thought a CD series using Paul Darrow as one of the leads would be marketable.[Poll #1360056]
