Just when you think humans have finally reached their highest level of insanity and hope they won't level up anymore, this happens. A teenager sells his kidney to buy Apple products.
People used to joke about having to sell their organs to be able to afford their college tuition. But this is iPhones and iPads we're talking about. No matter how fancy, no thing will ever be worth your health. Except in the case of 25-year-old Wang Shangkun, apparently, Daily Mail reports.
But as much as we'd like to judge him for his mistake, there's a story behind it. He isn't a spoiled kid. He is poor, and he lives in a society that values groups of people over individuals. Conformity over originality.
This inevitably leads to peer pressure that's much more complicated than the kind we're used to in the Western world.
