Arthur Jumbles: FTFA: "It is difficult to put a price tag on the anguish of a man wrongly convinced of his impending death," Molloy wrote in his decision. "Mr. Templin lived for 148 days ... under the mistaken impression that he was dying of metastatic brain cancer."Apparently not too hard since the judge decided $500 a day was good.....
mike_d85: Wasn't this a queen latifa movie?She seemed to discover what's important in life or something.Maybe she taught steve martin to dance and be happy?
impaler: I just thought of a plot for a new comedy.Doctor makes a diagnosis like this, and 6 months later discovers the error. In order to avoid an expensive lawsuit, the doctor performs a serious of hilariously inept attempts to kill the patient.
MyRandomName: One day people will learn medicine is not and never will be an exact science. False positives exist.

Devo: 60K doesn't seem like a crazy amount. 1/3 of that went to the lawyer.
CrackpipeCardozo: CSB:One of the only bankruptcies I've ever filed was for a guy was diagnosed with some sort of rare brain infection and was told (by several doctors) that he only had about 1.5 years to live. So he and his wife sold their house and used the cash for a down-payment on a badass Winnebago and general living expenses, then they hit the road for a year. Drove coast to coast then up to Alaska, burned through their cash and then started using credit cards . My client had a $350k life insurance policy and a decent retirement that would both go to his wife, and their assumption was that she would pay off their debt when he passed.After their 14 month trip, my client goes to see some specialist who tells him that had his body successfully fought off the brain infection to such a degree that the specialist was essentially dumbfounded. So while my client had the superhuman ability to ward off an almost guaranteed death sentence, he was also stuck with about $130k in debt racked up from a dying last wish./csb
Martian_Astronomer: Wait, I know this joke..."...so then, the guy decides he's going to get some custom shirts made, since he's dying and it's not like he'll need the money to live on. So, he goes to the tailor and gets his measurement taken. The tailor measures his neck and mumbles '17 inches' as he jots down the number.The guy says 'No, you mean 15.'The tailor says 'No, really, you've got a 17 inch neck.'So the guy says, 'Look, I've been wearing a 15 inch collar for years.'And the tailor looks at him and says 'Man if you go around wearing a collar that tight, you're going to have headaches, dizzy spells, and a persistent ringing in your ears.'"/ I never said it was a *funny* joke
jmr61: "Was ordered into hospice care"?Sorry doc but you or no one is "ordering " me to hospice or anywhere else, particularly after you've just told me I'm dying soon.
BKITU: [static.tvfanatic.com image 240x320]"... not again!"
Harry Freakstorm: From what I've learned about the VA, if they tell you that you are going to die in six months it means you are going to live to be 110."Look at this x-ray. You see this shrapnel right here? It's lodged against your fallopian tubes. I'm afraid you'll never conceive a child."I'm not a woman, doc."Now that's just the wrong attitude to take, ma'am."
Mr Guy: You know what, seems like his insurance should cover that treatment, since apparently banging his wife a lot and seeing the country was the correct cure for that uncurable disease, and 130k doesn't seem bad compared to even a lot of minor out patient procedures...
