Boy Wishes He Hadn't Sold His Kidney For An iPad 2

A 17-year-old boy in Shanghai is experiencing extreme buyer’s remorse after his health has begun to falter after selling his kidney to buy an iPad 2, reports the Global Times.

The high school freshman got hooked up with a organ broker online who promised to pay 20,000 yuan, equivalent to $3,085, to buy one of his kidneys. The boy traveled north to another city to undergo the operation. His mother got suspicious when he returned home with an armful of Apple gadgets and a scar on his side and he was forced to fess up.

Sick. Talk about literally being consumed by that which you consume.
