Enchanted Tales

This has devolved from something serious into me spending time in all the fandoms. I spend my life watching Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Firefly, Nikita, Avengers etc.

It’s here! It’s here! The full #tfios trailer in beautiful high definition!

A reminder…many people have not read the book and there’s no shame in that. I think probably this would be a good time to go get it if you’d like to read it before the movie comes out. It’s a very good book. And it’s like $9 on Amazon.

So many feels.

Also their clothes (pockets, pockets, pockets).

if stuff is made for men, it’s practical and helps them be human beings
if stuff is made for women, it’s pretty and helps us be decoration

You forgot, the stuff made for women is also more expensive

Will never NOT reblog stuff such as this.

BOOM.

Reblogging for reasons of ARGH!

And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America

Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.

Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.

Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.

But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?

Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.

Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!

OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T

In England everything’s free and if your child gets killed on a school trip they give you like £200,000 and apologise profusely

eventually moving to Australia. FUCK this shit.

fuck america dude, that’s shocking.

never knew how much they charged, i knew you paid but fuck, that is extortion! 

As a citizen of not only Canada but also Alberta, I thought you guys would like to know what that hospital charge is for! It’s a daily $40 surcharge for having requested a private room. This person had a private room for four days, it’s pretty simple. :) It’s a really reasonable cost for the luxury of having a room completely to yourself, and is waived if you have a private room for medical reasons.

For example, I required antenatal care for premature labour. They assigned me a private room completely on their own because peace and quiet were considered essential to delaying my labour and preserving the health of my daughters.

Our hospital system’s pretty nice.

UK-specific:

There are people here who want to dismantle the NHS. We’ve already strayed so far from the founding principles. It’s now been decided that some treatments should only be available to people who are “beneficial to society”. And with the current level of hatred towards unemployed people and the attitude of “why should my tax money pay for other people’s problems”, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this continues.

To anybody who supports the dismantling of the NHS

This is what your ignorance will plunge us all into. This is what your libertarian utopia looks like.

I told Netflix that I wanted to see a new genre: Movies That Pass the Bechdel Test. The rep I was speaking with suggested that a list of such movies could be found online for easy categorisation; he’s right.

If you’ve got a Netflix account and you like the sound of it, click here to IM with someone and request it.

Thing to do when I get home
