    Why is healthcare so expensive?

    Best answer: Actually, that is a very good question. I listen to NPR a lot, and around 2-3 years ago I remember them discussing this topic at some length. They interviewed a woman whose husband was in his mid 50s who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma cancer. Over a ~2 year period, he underwent 57 CAT scans and had expensive... show more
    Best answer: Actually, that is a very good question. I listen to NPR a lot, and around 2-3 years ago I remember them discussing this topic at some length. They interviewed a woman whose husband was in his mid 50s who was diagnosed with malignant melanoma cancer. Over a ~2 year period, he underwent 57 CAT scans and had expensive chemotherapy and surgery, with over $1,200,000 having been spent on his healthcare. Then do you know what happened next?
    He died. 
    Way back when Bill Clinton was President, Hillary proposed Hillarycare, (which bombed in the Congress at that time.). Hillary did talk about a 96 year old woman who underwent a $250,000 hip replacement, and then died less than 2 years later. 
    We spend $Billions on people who lie in nursing homes all day staring at the ceiling, who are fed through tubes inserted into their stomachs and who can't even control their own drool. Why do we do this? Because their families will say, "I wants everything done for Mama."
    And then there are millions of people who show up in emergency rooms and doctors' offices, who want to get an antibiotic for their common cold, when this is known to be totally ineffective and a waste of money. But people want it anyway. 
    People smoke 2 packs of cigarettes per day for 40 years, and then expect Medicare to pay for their expensive triple coronary bypass, or their expensive lung cancer chemotherapy, or their expensive home Oxygen therapy, etc. 
    And then there are all of the Psych cases out there, need I go on? 
    In short, ~20% of the public consumes ~90% of the healthcare costs. 
    And socialized healthcare will just make matters worse, not better.

    Why are atheists so HELLBENT trying to disprove God?

    God can not be comprehended, therefore it is IMPOSSIBLE to disprove Him. Quit your delusions and pray, for it is your only chance.

    How do you politely tell someone Jesus is NOT God?

    Best answer: Show them this scripture.

    At Jesus’ baptism a voice from heaven proclaims: “This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved.” Matthew 3:17

    Whose voice is that? It cannot be Jesus’ own voice; he is right there with John.

    That voice is God’s. Clearly, Jesus is God’s Son. He is not God himself.

    Are you better at Maths or Art?

    Are you better at Maths or Art?

    Best answer: The comparison above is not fair.  The equation above could be solved by anyone who took algebra 1, that is, a person of ordinary skill.  That artwork is far beyond ordinary skill.

    Probably math.  I did like to sketch, but never developed it.  Math, I did develop.

    A new boy in my class slapped my face because I kept flicking his ear. I'm a girl. Was he wrong to slap me?

We have a few friends and it's a tradition if a new person comes to our class we give them a hard time for a few days as a bit of an initiation.  Anyway, yesterday we got this new boy in our class.

    Asking here because most of my class thinks I deserved it. I'm in high school, and quite popular. We have a few friends and it's a tradition if a new person comes to our class we give them a hard time for a few days as a bit of an initiation.  Anyway, yesterday we got this new boy in our class. His parents moved recently from El Salvador, and he's got quite a strong accent. Tbh he's very cute and I gave him a harder time than usual just so he'd interact with me. So when he spoke to me I'd mimic his accent and make some jokes at his expense. He was getting a little angry and I liked the tension between us. I sat behind him in class and kept flicking one of his ears. I literally turned his ear from brown to red the number of times I flicked it. I know this sounds mean but it was honestly in good fun. Then suddenly he just turned around and I felt his hand fly across my face. He slapped my left cheek so hard my hair flew all over my face and tears started running down my cheeks. And he said "You will get one of these every time you touch me".The teacher scolded him but most people in the class think I deserved to be hit. How is a boy hitting a girl across her face okay whatever the circumstances? I feel so humiliated right now honestly.
