So I was making a deposit at the local blood bank yesterday and saw a notice saying that therapeutic phlebotomy would cost the recipient of that process $250. I had to look it up. The Wikipedia page goes to blood letting.
Turns out it actually is a procedure sometimes prescribed for certain conditions where high levels of red blood cells are present. Huh. I learn something every day.
But between you and me, if I had to go through that I think I would learn how to do it to myself to avoid paying that $250. I'm that cheap.
