A 17-year old who sold a kidney on the black market last year to afford an iPad and iPhone is now suffering from renal failure as his remaining kidney is unable to adequately filter toxins from his blood. There is no app for that.

Xinhua news agency reported that the five include Song Zhongyu, a surgeon from a provincial hospital in Yunnan province, Su Kaizong, who works in a hospital urology department and ringleader He Wei, who organised the operation to pay off his gambling debts.


In total, the project generated 220,000 yuan (£21,971) of which Wang was given 22,000 yuan (£2,197) and the rest split between the five who have been charged with intentional injury.

Last June, for example, teenage fondleslab fan Xiao Zheng sold a kidney to pay for an iPad 2.

Sure he might be lacking kidney functionality, but you know what he's not lacking? Apps. NO REGRE-- holy shit I'm pissing blood. But seriously, what did we all learn from this? "If you're going to sell an organ to make a quick buck, make sure it isn't yours." And? "Never leave a paper trail." You! You're getting a gold star sticker.

Thanks to Lord Tarl, brian and Wesso, who don't sell organs but can get you a hell of a deal on a piano.
