    no, i'm not sure exactly what happened. i was in resus (sp) wiv my grandad, and the guy jus got rushed in, n evry1 was like he's been shot in the head n stuff, he regained consciousness while i was there, it wasn't like a proper massive bullet or nethin (dnt hav a clue what kind of gun) but coz it was his head, it was proper bad.
    probably a bb gun or a paintball gun then.

    probably because it was an air rifle.

    I gave blood about a month ago and it was fine. The only time it hurt was when the nurse pushed the needle into the vein, but after that it was plain sailing! Took aaages though, and the machine started having flashing lights that said my 'blood flow' was crap. So he made me clench my fist over and over lol.

    But boy did I feel **** the next mornin! Ill be at uni when my 3 months is up, so Ill decide wot I wanna do then, but all you guys should do it! Not being bothered aint an excuse. If everyone said that, then loads people would die. :eek:

    Because we have inadequate testing facilities.
    No, our testing facilities are fine.

    The problem is that despite extensive research no one has yet managed to develop an antigen-based test rather than an antibody-based one.

    An inadequate test, not inadequate testing facilities.

    head wounds always tend to bleed a lot relative to their severity compared to other places on the body.

    I'm hopefully going to be giving blood for the first time next Tuesday .
    Just wondering though, how bruised will my arm be? Got a wedding to go to next Saturday and don't really want a disgusting bruise on my arm .

    ive been twice and the first time i had a teeny weeny bruise, the second time i had no bruise at all. if you really press on the pad they give you for a while, you have less chances of a bruise.

    if it really bothers you though you could always go after the wedding instead

    it will be GIGANTIC


    no, i kid. a small thing at worst, nothing at best (although if you get a plaster, teh glue is very strong so it might just stick to your arm)

    I'm sure there is room for improvement. However they are not insufficient (as you stated), nor are the state of the facilities responsible the false negatives during early stages of infection due to the person not having seroconverted.
