Have you ever found yourself so strapped for cash you've considered doing something drastic, like committing a crime, visiting a loan shark or selling one of your organs on the Black Market for some quick cash?
Most of us find ourselves so strapped for cash it stresses us out from time to time, but things usually work themselves out before we do something we'll regret.
However, I've always wondered how much I could get for a kidney or an eyeball if I was forced to sell, or how much my family can get for my heart when I die, and it turns out these organs are worth a lot more than I thought.
A kidney can fetch $200,000 on the Black Market, and 75% of Black Market activity involves kidney sales so you could say it's their all-time best seller.
Your corneas are worth a pittance in comparison, a mere $24,400, and surprisingly the heart is worth a little over half a kidney (around $119k).
At that price you'd be better off selling bone marrow- that stuff's worth about $23,000 per gram, and your body must have quite a few grams of marrow to spare, right? *wink*
