However, the cheaper ones didn't have rights and didn't really care. So they'd put Cow and Grocery Store on the shirts and sell it to the hip kids.

Yes, that was one of my delights while living in China.  Kids wold wear the goofiest shirts, someone of them really vulgar and offensive, if they had English on them.  This even happened in HK where English is an official language.

As well as Korea, Mongolia, anywhere in Asia, really.  And I would bet it happens in many other non-English speaking countries as well.


I was in Bangkok a couple of years ago on business, staying at a ultra high-end hotel, and at breakfast I noticed one of the other customers--an obviously wealthy middle-aged Japanese businessman staying there with his middle-aged Japanese wife--who was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of a 9 mm Glock on it, and the words (in English): "GLOCK: When you absolutely, positively need to shoot some coont in the face."  I doubt he had much of a clue about what it actually said.

rkiller1: 2headedboy: FREE healthcare

"Free" as in nobody is paying for it, or "free" that somebody else is footing the bill, just not you?



Even under private health insurance, the average policy holder receives much less in services than they pay in premiums. That's the only way insurance CAN work. So yes, in most people's experiences you are indeed footing the bill for somebody else.

The goal should be to minimize administrative expenses and fraud. Medicare and Medicaid are actually exceptionally good at the former, less so at the latter, but not enough to offset the administrative savings.

Fifteen years ago I worked for a physician billing company here in MA. We had two people handling just BCBS, a single commercial carrier. We had dozens more handling the rest. Meanwhile, the little old lady who processed both Medicare and Medicaid claims spent half her day sipping tea. Christ, we could have run that company on six people if there was single payor.
