Quick Cash for My Fluids

"Body Bucks: How to Sell Your Body to Science While You're Still Alive," is the latest and wackiest course offered by the year-old online New Canoe University, based in Sausalito, just north of San Francisco.

"By selling bodily fluids and participating in medical experiments, a human being can earn $20,000 or more per year," said course instructor Bob Heyman on Thursday. "This is literally the only business out there where you can always carry your assets with you and they're renewable to boot."

Using Internet-based learning modules with titles like "Bleeding for Bucks," the course teaches students how to make money by legally selling their blood, sperm, eggs, hair and bone marrow, and by taking part in paid medical trials and research. The sale of vital organs is illegal in the United States.
