Wait, so you are trying to get insurance online? Is there like a problem with going to an insurance place, or is there isn't any there?


The insurance places have to do it through the website too. That's what all the big fuss is about. Even if you do what Obama says to do and call the 1-800-f**k-YO number -- (I'm dead serious about that one too) http://dailycaller.com/2013/10/03/need-health-care-coverage-just-dial-1-800-f**kyo-to-reach-obamacares-national-hotline/ -- the health exchange assistant on the other end also has to do it through the inoperable healthcare.gov website: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/22/obamacare-phone_n_4144951.html

So you're screwed either way.

These are the unfortunate Facts Of The Day, so we are still on the thread topic.

Off topic, since I'm more confused about why pen and paper isn't good anymore, but that number is false, even if it did say F**k Yo, that would be a number short, being only 10 characters when it should be 11.

I don't know why they didn't include the extra number in the headlines from a few weeks ago. Maybe for censorship reasons, who knows? I'm curious now as to how you managed to get ObamaCare when so many people in Louisiana still have not? Insurers are the ones that send your insurance information in to the providers. If you are, literally, one of the lucky few, then good on ya, mate!  Cheers

I'm just saying that there are so many millions of Americans out there that are not so lucky.

Gary Oldman thought the script for Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula (1992) was awful, and he almost turned it down. He agreed to play the part of Dracula only because of this one line: "I have crossed oceans of time to find you." - Oldman admitted he was so touched reading that line it made him cry.

I think at the end of the film Oldman was not the only one crying. This is not a favorite among a lot of fans of Bram Stoker's "Dracula." I think a lot of them object to the liberties taken with the original story, especially the romance between Dracula and Mina. Though, it did gross enough at the box office, I believe, to make it one of the top 10 films in box office gross, so somebody besides myself must have liked it.

I have always liked it for a couple of reasons. (1) The running gun battle at the end between Dracula's pursuers and the Gypsies guarding Dracula's coffin. I think only the BBC version from 1977, which also had a shoot out at the end, had an ending as exciting.

And (2) I think Oldman's version is also the only version to feature the American Quincy P. Morris (here played by Bill Campbell) who is in the book but not in most of the screen versions. As I understand it, Stoker based the character on Buffalo Bill Cody. And whether it is true or not, I don't know, but I have also heard at the time that Stoker wrote "Dracula," Americans were not popular among British writers. There was only one other British writer, besides Stoker, who liked Americans. I have forgotten who it was, but it may have been British writer Rudyard Kipling, who actually lived in America for a while and gave it some thought to settle here permanently, before he gave up that idea.

Because I live in a city where it's mainly Democratic, not like up north in Ruston/ Shreveport where "Jesus is my only health person I need" is used. Cheers

I always think of Japan as being such a technologically advanced country, but reading up on it a bit, I found out that throughout most of the country (except for the northern part) almost none of the houses, apartments or schools have insulation or central heating.  And Japanese winters are fairly cold, with an average low of 2 C (35 F) in Tokyo in January.  They basically only heat one room of the house, and then only barely, and sit around something called a kotatsu



which is a table with a small heater attached to the underside of the top, and a blanket around the edge.  I guess families grow close by all huddling around this table during the winter months, eating their dinner and watching TV together in the evenings.

I can vouch for that.  My wife and I lived in Japan for the first year and a half of our marriage, and for nearly a year we lived in a small off-base apartment in a suburb of Yokosuka called Kita-Kurihama.  Our walls were paper thin and the only heat was from a kerosene heater we purchased; due to the danger of CO2 poisoning we could not leave it on overnight, so on those bitterly cold (to us Texans, anyway!) mornings, one person would climb out from under the blankets and turn the heat on, then jump back under and huddle for warmth until it dispelled the chill in the air.

In Rio de Janeiro you can opt to pay a fine for most minor civil offenses directly to the police officer who stops you over the matter.

I offer no further comment.
