Great picture of Sniper Corporal Pat McKinney, 31, from 6th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, discovers that his sniper suit is somewhat irresistible to the Regimental Mascot, Shetland Pony, Cruachan 4th. Pat and Cruachan were in Glasgow’s George Square as part of Scotland’s biggest recruitment event for the Army Reserve.
Okay, that’s just ridiculously cute.
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
how can anaesthetic cost that much??
how is this legal??
WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.
When people here in Canada ask me “if it’s really that bad’ I just show them this. And then their eyes just get wide.

that’s the cutest demonstration of wingchun i have seen my entire life
Gently demonstrating two dozen blocks, traps, intercepts and strikes in a few seconds — an early and advanced education for a child who will likely grow up with an acute eye and feel for how the body works.
OH MY GOSH I saw the video for this and nearly cried! The best part is taht she’s having fun but over time you can see she gets more and more serious about it and aahhhhh~
Wing Chun daddy, forever reblog. Oh hey, the video.
All these men holding doors for women disgust me.
Do they really think that I’m gonna have sex with their filthy small penis just because they held open a door? Hell no! Die in a fucking hole.
Men stop at nothing to rape women. Next time a man holds the door open for you, kick him in his junk so hard he’ll never have kids. :)
You are a deranged, sick, individual.
People like her is what is wrong with the world.
SAS as fuck
