What's your favorite dinosaur?


When I was little, I loved Diplodocus. As I grew older, I liked the dromeosaurs more - my first e-mail address, now defunct, was utahraptorgirl98@yahoo.com. I remember at the time (2000) being shocked that there were two people on the internet who wanted the e-mail handle "utahraptorgirl".

Questions about American health insurance....

In the UK we have the NHS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Health_Service_%28England%29 which provides health care.  It is the publically funded health care system. The NHS provides healthcare to anyone normally resident in the UK with most services free at the point of use for the patient though there are charges associated with eye tests, dental care, prescriptions, and many aspects of personal care.  Eye tests, dental care, prescriptions and other things though are subsidised and the costs covered for those on benefits or who have low incomes, like young people, the old and students.  We have one ambulance service which runs throughout the country, taking whoever needs it to hospital where they will be treated for free, free treatment is also covered by local doctors.  The NHS is funded by a taxable amount taken from each working person in the UK, straight from their wages in the form of National Insurance contributions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_insurance (national insurance contributions also provide money for benefits in the UK, for the unemployed and sick, they also contribute towards each persons state pension (an amount given by the state to those of pensionable age))  he unemployed as well as the employed are covered by the NHS  so everyone in the UK is entitled to the same basic health care.  Hospital stays however long, incur no cost for anyone.

So coming to my questions:

1) How does the American health insurance scheme work?  I have heard you have to pay or your company pays for an insurance scheme so you can go to hospital and be covered by the scheme, other wise you have to pay for treatment yourself?  Is this true, if so how much does it normally cost to be covered?

2) Does your health insurance cover you for all hospitals, or is it just set hospitals who sign up to your insurance provider?

3)I have heard that if you have no or the incorrect type of health insurance ambulances can drive straight past you and dont have to stop, is this true?

4) For the people who cannot afford / do not have health insurance what do they do? Do they just have to suffer?  is there free hospitals for them to go to?

5)Do you think a national or at least state health scheme would be a viable idea in the States?

6) If you could change American health care, how would you do it?

As I say I have no experience of the American health care system, so i really don't know how it works.  The only coverage I have seen of American hospitals have been on the comedy shows, Family Guy, Simpsons and Scrubs and I doubt they are particulary realistic.

Sorry for the large post but I'm geniunely interested in how it all works

Whenever I read vaginapagina I feel like the entire female population of the (Internet-access-having) world lives their entire lives in deep, deep fear of pregnancy. Like, constant neurotic terror. Is something wrong with how we handle contraception and/or getting knocked up?

Gaeilge Interrogative

~This is related to the Usher's Island thing I asked about a few weeks ago, but is nowhere near as obscure.

The Gaelic term for Prime Minister is Taoiseach, whose pronunciation I have sussed out as TeeShax. Yes? No?

The Gaelic term for deputy Prime Minister is Tánaiste and that one has bloody well defeated me. Help?

PS I have no Gaelic-English dictionary, neither does the local library [I'm in the boondocks], the on-line ones are faakin' useless, and I'm twitchy and trying to do something toward Facing The Page.

I'm gonna be buying a shirt off Amazon.com, but the merchant selling it has sizing charts only for sweatpants (which is, as you can imagine, especially helpful when shirt shopping). It's just a regular raglan-shoulder baseball-style jersey shirt, and the sizes are listed as follows:



What are the numbers beside the sizes? If I'm looking at an adult medium, is that 38-40 inches around the chest, or what? Anyone have any ideas?

stalkers suck =0(

if the only information somebody has about you is your first name and your 10 digit mobile phone number, what information can they find out about you? what if you then changed your number, and the only info they have is your old phone number? are there services that can tell them the address of the main wireless account holder or any other types of identifying information? i have verizon, if that changes anything. i've seen some services online that claim they can offer info for a fee, but i wasn't sure how legit they are and exactly what information they are able to provide.

I'm interested in this because i just changed my number due to harassing phone calls and video messages of porn and beastiality i was receiving from a stalker, and I'm terrified that he might find out more information about me. I'd go to the police and file a harassment charge or restraining order, but then he'd discover my address/last name, correct? thanks for any help you might have.

Username used but wanted

So, one thing that I really hate, is that you want a specific username somewhere and when you go to put it in it says it is already used.  So, if you all are like me, you  go specifically to the person's profile to see what they are like and if they are still even using the username.  And they're not!  It's just an idle username that hasn't been used in 7 years!! 

Is there a username that you really want that is technically used but not BEING used?

For me it's Prajna and she/he hasn't been on since 2001.  -_-  And I think it's in Russian...

If you had to pick a piece of classical music to listen to for the rest of your life (you can't listen to anything else, but you can turn it off and not listen to music), what would it be?

So, some guy from around here won $34 million dollars playing the lottery. Great. Right?
Well, I guess he's a sex offender and the local news keeps blasting the, "SEX OFFENDER WINS $34 MILLION" headlines. On their website, you can post in a forum about how you feel. A ton of people feel that he doesn't deserve the money and what-not because he's a sex offender and he should pay his victims X amount of money for the emotional distress.

So, how would you feel if a sex offender won $34 million? Should he pay his victims or are these people just butthurt?

So, in about a year and a half I'll be finished with school. (Yay!) At that point I'd like to go overseas for about a year, and work while I'm away. I'd like to keep costs down as much as possible, because I'm not mega-rich.

The itinerary (which is extremely negotiable at this point) would be something like this:
- France ~3-4 months
- Britain and/or Ireland 6 months
- South America (Argentina, maybe) ~3-4 months
Along with some general travelling.

Should I arrange my own work and accomodation, or go through some sort of organisation?

Do you have any recommendations for organisations to you?

Any general advice for taking a gap year/working holiday?

Should I do it alone all the way, bring a friend everywhere, or try and meet up with someone halfway through?

Thanks in advance.

Why does that camwhore wannabe with the fug boyfriend/friends keep posting pictures asking for judgment on looks then deleting posts when it's concluded they are all really ugly?

Did anyone save pics? Can we make macros?

TQC Mommies - I'm sending baby clothing (gifts) to a friend of mine who just had a little girl. Would it be worthwhile to send the hangers with, or would that be a waste of postage? (I bought a lot of 3-6 and 6-9 month stuff, so it's not going to be competing with her 0-3 month stuff for hangers, if that matters)

If I have an HD TV but don't have cable, can I get network channels? How? (theoretical)

Do you watch game shows? Which ones?

Because this one is much more fun compared to the other way and produces names that don't sound like gibberish...

What are 4 (realistic) names you can come up with for yourself using the letters from your parents' first names?

You're taking a shower, a nice hot one, following a rather busy and stressful day at your uncomfortable office job where your boss spends the majority of his time trying to grab your butt and makes lewd remarks about you that would be considered harassment. You would say something, but the pay is good, and no one else in the area offers decent benefits. But you're in the shower, your eyes closed and enjoying the smell of your new soap and whatever, when suddenly you notice an odd smell. It takes you a minute to realize what the smell is. It's blood.

You open your eyes, and realize it's not your blood. The shower, itself, is spewing blood. You get out of the shower in a panic and try to clean the blood off, only getting your white towel to turn a nice shade of red and not accomplishing much else. You go to turn off your shower, but the blood forms a hand and knocks you back. Slowly the blood-hand forms the rest of a body, and stands in the shower building more of itself. You grab various things--your hair dryer, Listerine, and whatever else--and throw it at the blood monster, only to have it absorbed and spit back out at you, barely missing you and hitting the wall.

The blood monster looks at you, its dead, coagulated eyes filled with what could only be considered murderous rage, and says, "A plane takes off and flies due west at 350 mph. At the same time a second plane leaves the same airport and flies due east at 400 mph. How long after they take off will the two planes pass each other?"

Do you believe a husband or wife should be able to sue their spouse for more than half in a divorce on the basis of denial of conjugal rights?

If you denied your spouse conjugal rights without working out why you're denying them, would you be upset if you found out they cheated on you?
