Norway Needs Blood Donations

I know, we haven’t been posting stories in the last couple weeks. As of 3 a.m. the plan was to get some well-earned sleep, wake up, walk the dog, and then start writing and posting.

That was the plan until we woke up and heard about two separate terror attacks in our favorite country not our own, Norway.

For those of you just tuning in, a bomb exploded in Oslo and a crazed gunman disguised as a police offer shot up youth camp. So far, 17 people 92 people are confirmed dead in both incidents.

And yes, they are probably related.

So now our first post is for our Norwegian readers — of which there are, reportedly, several.

If you live in the area of Utøya or Eastern Norway, officials are reportedly asking people with bloodtype O to donate to the local blood banks. As it’s the “universal bloodtype,” Type O is a lifesaver in times of disaster.

Please, if you have Type O blood and you’re near enough to a blood-donation center, take your badass Tigerblood to your local blood donation center and give a pint. You will save a life with your super-awesome bulletproof blood of awesomeness, and you’ll probably be rewarded with orange juice and cookies — which lets face it, is exactly what Charlie Sheen was consuming when he got all wizardy famous.

But then again, this is Norway — it’s probably Solo and rakfisk.

Which I hear can make you see God.
