haha, ok ok, I would love to see you giving so much blood :P I´m sure about my answer, actually I´m a blood donor, and girls can give 500ml of blood 4 times per year while men can do it 5 per year :)

No, everybody can give 500 ml blood (if he/she wants) about two times a year. It is not something special capacity. At an accident or in case of emergency (for ex: the blood is AB or 0 RH negative) it is possible to give triple or quadriple, too. We could not do that if we had only 4-5 liters.

I think we have around 4-5 liters. If you want to donate blood the maximum cuantity they can take is 500ml.

About 8 liters, it is the normal. Losing 3 liters or more from this: it is already deathly.
