    Not sure if you were looking for critique, but the HJ page is weird? You switch between talking first-person and talking about yourself in the third person, and you quote yourself. In actual...

    Prediction for next season: Dowager revealed as a vampire. Dislikes the Irish fellow because he has access to Pope-blessed holy water.
  3. I think some people are naturally more able to...

    I think some people are naturally more able to multi-task while others can't do a good job with "distractions", but I've seen that in men and women. Probably, there are studies on it. More than...

    Wait, do the Catholic hospitals do cardiac bypass surgery? Because man, talk about not perfect! I happen to know that sometimes, it doesn't work, booyah!

    And cancer treatment? Man, let's not even...

    Ok, someone sorely needs to crack open a dictionary.

    In regard to the car comparison, the point was that I KNOW WHAT I'M PAYING BEFORE SIGNING THE PAPERS (sorry to shout, can't bold on this thing).
    If I'm going in for surgery and I'm told assistant...

    Certainly the unexpected can occur. You go in for a C-section expecting to leave the next day, and wake up 4 days later in the ICU - you should expect a much larger than predicted bill. You go in for...

    An Orthopod calling in a Neurosurgeon would not fill that role with a resident, so cut-back resident hours would have nothing to do with the case at hand.

    Unless of course the Neurosurgeon was not...

    :eek:

    The article also says that what happens with these out-of-network "consultants" is sometimes just purely a scam - as in, the in-network guy takes his negotiated rate, calls in the consultant...

    Do you need that much in terms of extra vitamins? It's possible that much of the benefit is expensive urine here.

    What about funding wars? Will you stop paying taxes, which fund the military, which is currently, and has in the past, been engaged in wars (certainly not all to protect itself or even its...

    The hospital can't refuse - if it's a true medical emergency. It must at least stabilize the patient before kicking him out to seek further help.

    Herniated discs are not a medical emergency, so it...

    Holy crud, those 2 statements do not match. I mean, if you think you'll need strength in numbers to protect yourselves from a freaking-out BO, that's not someone I'd characterize as "nice."

    I've...

    Good lord, don't get involved in anything with this "friend."

    Well, the $117k physician is an outlier, otherwise it wouldn't rate an article.

    Between Medicare and private insurance, generally only uninsured patients get hit with those humongous...

    Well, if what she set out to do was to be remembered as a "brutal lunatic woman", I guess she did?

    ^ yeah, that's not introvert-vs-extrovert issues. Even the most introverted can handle going to dinner with a few people every now and then, if they can't you're getting into much more serious...

    Also no sympathy - and if anyone's read my posts in any even slightly related post, I am all for women's rights.

    But I am definitely not for people putting others' lives at risk to make their...

    Erm...if it were the son-in-law and part of a family feud between the mother and the SIL/daughter, I would hardly expect the daughter to tell a reporter "oh yeah, by hubby beat the cr#p out of my...

    The US system of billed-fees ve negotiated-insurance fees flabbergasts me.

    I mean, $44,000 for a gallbladder? Lap chole takes, meh, a normal one 45 min or so, maybe 60 min. I've been in one that...

    LOL, hence my houseguest comment back there.

    I'm also wondering what exactly the "threat" to poor Lola was. Even had that poster meant the dog and not the song - how was that comment a threat?

    Without mentioning the specific "thing" (the pedophile priest scandal), your title makes no sense. Ok, I can accept that some people think the pedophile scandal in the Catholic church is "in the dust...

    Those cheap retired teachers are potion masters, see if they're not!

    I assume you mean the pedophilia scandal in the Catholic Church, which your title doesn't indicate*. Since I don't think even the half-witted think pedophilia itself is in the dust bins of history.
