The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 182.9K users

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

    Really? I've found the US healthcare system to be very different from the UK. In the UK the attitude is often more "just wait longer for it to get better" (i.e. "we have scarce resources and your problem is not important enough right now"), whereas in the US I've actually experienced upsell (i.e. "your insurance pays for this, go nuts!").

    I mostly just feel sorry for her. Poor kid never had a chance.

  • @tonypak said: I've been wondering what the difference is between "a massive crush" and being in love.

    A crush is one-sided infatuation, and can often occur without there being an actual relationship between the two people beyond mere acquaintance.

    Also, I would define love as a lasting feeling that can endure trial and hardship; whereas infatuation, while more intense in feeling, is shorter lived and does not endure.

  • Chyron, go look at the first reply to this thread.

    Yeah, looks to be a spambot.

    In Canada, the issue is mostly wait times. Since a lot of necessity is paid for by the government and most everything else is usually, at least partially, paid for by insurance through either private or employer, there's just more people wanting care than people to provide it. The one time I've required surgery, it was done through a specialist in a private practice, so I've never experienced it, but apparently our hospital wait times are something like #1 in developed nations.
