...and this story shocked me. A forwarded message with a warning that I'm translating for all of you fellow TalkBassers. I don't know if it's true or not, but anyway it left me a sensation of uneasiness. Fortunately, I don't drink nor like going to bars: " BE CAREFUL WHEN PARTYING On last September 17th, a young man from Bogotá went with some friends to a bar in a near city. They were having a good time and he was a little drunk and a cute girl that he met there invited him to her house and he obviously accepted. They went to a small apartment and kept drinking beer and then he was doped. When he woke up, he was naked in a bath tub totally covered in ice. He still had the hangover, but he could feel a sharp pain in his back. He saw in a wall a message written with a lipstick: "Call inmediately to the hospital because you have less than two hours of life left. And thank you". There was a phone by his side and called. He explained to the person who picked the call what happened, about drinking, woking up naked, the bath tub with ice, his back pain and the reason because he was calling. The woman at the phone told him to look on a mirror if he had some needle marks or something like that. Apparently OK, so she asked him to watch his back and he saw two cuts like 15 cms. long in the lower area of his back. An ambulance was sent inmediately and at the hospital they found what happened: His kidneys were stolen. Each one costs around US$10000 in the black market. People involved in this have medical knowledge and the drugs given aren't funny: Big amounts of heavy anesthetics. Right now this guy is connected to a system for keeping him alive, waiting for a compatible kidney. You can't imagine this new mafia which purpose is selling human organs. They sell corneas, lungs, kidneys and even eyes, around US$5000 and US$10000, depending on the organ. We want to prevent new cases from happening (personal data of the victim provided). "
