The insurance issue is unnecessarily complicated in the US. Some insurances require these tests to be done so they can charge the...

And Americans are typically very unfamiliar with the other half of the roster for every team (or the entire roster for teams like Italy, Netherlands, China, etc. It's a nice respite from...
Quote: Originally Posted by gdl203 The CC people said that they don't even give an option for hardwood. It's melamine and particle board or nothing. All true, but we decided it was the best fit for us. I forget how, but we got 10% off the total price, and we did their most basic decorative options for 5 closets (3 walkins). We live in a city, so having efficient use of storage space is very important. We also have a fairly minimal and...
I honestly don't see how much will change. Decriminalization is really only a band-aid or half-solution. Sure, it will keep some people out of jail, but without a change to federal law, states cannot levy tax on the sale of marijuana, and the net-positive benefits are lost. I am not one to decry healthcare issues to stall legalization, but for those that do, the taxes collected from the state managed sale of marijuana would not only cover any increased healthcare costs,...

Quote: Originally Posted by Piobaire Physicians are far from perfect. But medicine has been about less than science for a long, long time, and more about CYA (cover your assessment). Your article mentioned PAP smears? Nice selectivity, but low sensitivity. Meaning, better tests out there, things are missed, and procedures get done that don't need to get done. Ditto many of the various screening tests for women. However, try paying the med mal for...
Quote: Originally Posted by Merckx Wait until Austin gets their overdue, over priced, over budget commuter rail online, that will be the fourth. Commuter rail is only one component. Light rail brings people in from the suburbs to a few central stations, then a subway (or elevated) rail system disperses people around the city. Each system has their own pros and cons, but one cannot be the substitute for the other. All the talk about...
Quote: Originally Posted by Trojanman74 my pediwear order had the pricematched belgrave to L268.29, almost 20 dollars cheaper than what you have here When did you order? What was the MYR to GBP rate at that time? What was the GBP to USD rate at that time? The price-matched quote from Pedi may be a few dollars cheaper if you do a straight conversion because I also built in a 3% foreign transaction fee.. which is typically charged when...
I was very close to pulling the trigger on a LT bag that was on Gilt last year. I kinda wish that I did. I ended up with an incredibly cheap Jack Spade bag off of Gilt that does the trick, but I have a bit of non-buyers remorse over the missed LT opportunity.
