America, land of the brave and home of those who only get healthcare if they call Sarah Silverman a cunt in public.

Don't be jealous that we Americans found a way to receive healthcare, instead of waiting years at a time for our issues to get fixed for free.

If your need for healthcare is that great Foob, maybe you should try calling her a cunt yourself?

Really? That's news to me; I haven't been to a doctor in 20 years. Or do the un- and under-insured just not count as Americans?

You're missing a joke.

Probably.

Hey, it's an improvement on the previous method, putting up a GoFundMe page and begging everyone you know to help pay your hospital bill.

It's been said before, but commercialised health care is evil.

I had very bad toothache over Christmas, and when you don't have toothache (like I don't have now) it's impossible to remember how utterly debilitating that is. I was googling methods of pain relief and the discussions I found seemed to mainly consist of Americans who were not only in agony, but desperately trying to assuage the pain by stuffing crushed paracetamol into their cavities because they had no realistic prospect of getting dental treatment at all.

And there was me, unhappy at having to wait a week before I could hand over £50 because the NHS clinic was closed for Christmas. Reminded me how lucky I am.

I just saw Our Finest Hour last week. Pretty good. Gary Oldman was great, as always.
Churchill flipping off

Thanks to sanepride posting about dental discount plans i was finally able to get a couple of teeth pulled last november. 100 something for the plan and about 380 for the pulling. Saved myself about 150. Getting an appointment was a freaking nightmare tho, because the only places that take the plans are these chain places that use automated phone systems and all have like 1 star reviews on google.

Glad that helped. Back when I was on Carington like 15 years ago (before I married into decent health/dental coverage) it was pretty widely accepted by respectable dentists, at least in my neck of the woods. Saved me a heap on root canals.

Appreciate it. Yeah, it's all scary review land now, but it did the job.

$10 says if we check up on this guy a year from now he'll still be a miserable prick. Any takers?

The odds are in your favor.

Doesn't matter though. You still help the assholes, just for the few if them you can redeem.

Go Sarah!
