Ain’t that the damn truth.

imagine crime:
"GET DOWN HE’S GOT A ROOTY-TOOTY-POINT-N-SHOOTY"

I see absolutely no downside to this.


That would be the best name for guns evar. All tension in any scenario instantly dissipates to laughter

Insurance companies are stupid

I had to get a mucocele removed from my lip (it’s a burst salivatory gland) by an oral surgeon.  All in all, I had to pay $333 as my copay!  They charge for cutting open my lip ($298), and charge a separate amount to actually remove the mucocele which is stupid because I could have cut it myself and saved myself the money.  Plus I had to pay for the copay of seeing the doctor, and a few other things.  Granted, insurance covered roughly $500 of the total cost, but today I got a phone call.

Apparently my insurance didn’t cover the x-ray they did, so I have to pay $67 for a stupid x-ray.  

All be told, I paid around $400 for my surgery, and insurance paid $500.  I paid like 40% for my surgery; imagine if it had been a $2000 surgery instead of an $800!!!  The only reason I can afford to pay is because I got my tax return; but I’ve now blown 1/3 of it on this surgery when my dental insurance should have covered me more.

This is fucking ridiculous.

Anonymous asked: Are you insane enough to like Obama Care? Or to think that a weapons ban would REALLY keep mass shootings at bay? Because Columbine happened during the AWB and we all know how that turned out.

Yes I believe everybody should have health care.  I don’t think we should ban weapons but I think restrictions on the ability to acquire guns legally would definitely stem the tide of mass shootings.  If a gunman can’t get his hands on a 100-round magazine, it will definitely slow down a mass shooter since the majority of the time when gunmen are stopped, it’s when they’re reloading.

cinnamondaylight asked: Somebody called Obama a "moron" while praising Reagan for his intellect. Please help.

Remind them that Reagan traded military grade weapons and amunition for hostages and then didn’t get the hostages (Iran/Contra).  Remind them that Reagan tripled the national debt, and Obama has lowered it significantly.  Remind them that Reagan stopped funding health clinics for those who need them which is why there are so many “crazy homeless” (schizophrenics) people around.  Just remind them of all of that.  I would put it in more complicated terms, but if they think Obama is a moron, then they probably can’t handle “the facts”

The library’s one of the few civic spaces we have left. People are feeling like there’s no other ways for these online platforms and services to be run, it’s our destiny to have them be privately run, and yet we invoke the analogy of the library or archive all the time. To me it says that we find it realistic that Google will be our archive when it’s an advertising company. We’ve seen them get rid of services that are not profitable (Google Reader), and we’ve seen them demote things like Google Scholar. That’s realism, where it’s unrealistic to think we’d build on the success of the library with a national repository for knowledge, arts, and culture? Libraries exist and they’re open. Libraries exist with all these values we invoke in the digital sphere, but there are very few people thinking about how we might build upon them. Astra Taylor (via azspot)
