Two Chinese men each planned on selling a kidney in order to buy the Apple iPhone 6s
According to China Daily, two Chinese men identified as Wu and Huang both wanted an Apple iPhone 6s. There is nothing wrong with that, except for the fact that the pair did not have the necessary funds to make such a purchase. So Huang came up with an idea. Both men would sell one of their kidneys to raise the needed capital. After all, the men could live with only one kidney, but they couldn't live without the iPhone 6s.

Scouring the internet, Wu and Huang found an 'agent' who was willing to arrange the transaction. The agent requested that both men be checked out at a hospital in Nanjing, just to make sure the kidneys being offered were functioning correctly. This past Saturday, both men appeared at the hospital, but the agent failed to show.

Wu might have taken the agent's absence at the hospital as a sign that he should reconsider this illegal plan. He told his pal to drop the whole thing. But when Huang refused to pull the plug on this wacky scheme, Wu ended up ratting out his friend to the authorities. Huang ended up fleeing and cannot be found.

If you want a new Apple iPhone 6s or Apple iPhone 6s Plus, you are definitely not alone. Apple says that all indications lead to the conclusion that initial weekend sales of the new models will top the 10 million units that were rung up over last year's opening weekend. But there are better ways to finance the purchase of either new iPhone model than by selling part of your body.

Don't worry, Jonas. By the time the iPhone 7 is out, they can sell half their brains. They won't notice any difference in performance.

See this is where I would have to question that, because Apple's marketing is build around making you feel like you cannot do without their product, that it is the most important thing that exists and best product out there. And well clearly these people believe that.

I'm not a Apple fan, but this hardly is apples fault. Is the same if you blame H&K for the deaths with their guns. I hope they sell both kidneys and don't have any children... otherwise Darwin would be so uncomfortable in his grave

No, it's the people with splattered iFan brains that are attracted. I don't know why but people should stop making the iPhone a status symbol now because it's frickin annoying and just makes me, darkk, Wiencon or other people here look downright stupid.

But ifans will deny they are stupid. Instead of just maybe working an extra job for the money because you are to poor to buy the phone, you will go and sell a kidney for it? What type of loser do you have to be, to risk a surgery that you dont even need to buy a frikkin phone. This is just more proof of how people are enslaved to stupidity and how ignorant they are over gadgets.

Why this is scary is that through aggressive advertising, apple was able to make people willing to risk their lives for something.. What if this same technique is available with enough capital to advertise something more sinister.a cause that could wipe out nations..here's the kicker. It probably is. Since the dawn of civilisation people have killed themselves over stuff they believed in . the methods of indoctrination are changing but the results are the same.. Complete obsession to the point of death

If people are stupid enough to kill themselves for an inanimate object, then we're better off as a species that they eliminated themselves.

thats plain stupid. They will get bored with iphone soon. Human nature, cant remain excited with one thing forever. What they will do then? when their excitement hormones which are boiling high at moment will come to normal. Then they will repent. Stupidity at its best.
