Man Donates Testicle To Science For Nissan 370Z
He'll use the $35,000 compensation to buy a sports car
This guy is nuts.
Mark Parisi spoke on the CBS show The Doctors about his plans to donate his left testicle to science. Along with a new artificial testicle, Parisi will receive $35,000 for his contribution to science, which he plans to use to buy a car.
Parisi, who was featured on the TLC show Extreme Cheapskates, often participates in highly invasive and dangerous medical procedures for cash and free medical checkups. As Forbes points out, selling body parts is illegal under The National Organ Transplant Act, which is why Parisi carefully frames the fee as a 'donation' for his time.
What car could prompt a man to donate a part of himself? How about a Nissan 370Z?
The 370Z is a serious sports car, with 3.7-liter V6 engine knocking out 350 horsepower. According to AOL Autos New Car tool its listed as retailing for around $36,000, or more than the cost of one human testicle.
At least he's getting a car that will help him compensate.
