Did you know that under wartime propaganda mode, ~25% of Aeridanés can be tricked into believing that the Aeridanish man is better than other nationalities.

Some news from our private hospitals:

A number of Danish women have been grossly deceived, after they bought a breast enlargement operation at Glostrup Private Hospital.
In secret, the doctor behind the hospital replaced the breast implant he had promised the women, with a cheaper and unknown implant from South Korea, reveals Ekstra Bladet.

According to the newspaper's information, the maneuver saved the doctor for up to half a million DKK.

In the spring, 500 women bought breast enlargement surgery by Brian Lerche, who operates Glostrup Private Hospital in Copenhagen.

During the three information sessions in Glostrup and Aarhus, the doctor promised women that they would get implants of the English brand Nagor. But in secret, the women suddenly got a much cheaper model - and the doctor did not tell openly that he had swapped the products.

Consumer Council calls the case grotesque and urges politicians to tighten the requirements for this type of operations:
Today, the doctor tells Ekstra Bladet that he probably should have informed the women. But he does not believe that they have an inferior product, even though the new and unknown model is significantly cheaper to purchase.

Source: http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland/2012/10/07/105903.htm



Can't say I'm surprised. Why don't private hospitals make an alliance with the tobacco industries - both seem to benefit from more people getting ill.
Assuming the price were the only difference between the implants, the doctor still deceived the people to pay way more than they would have needed to cover the hospital's costs.

Our old government spent a lot of money on over-paying private hospitals and promoting them.

(Also, I'm not stepping into any "moral" discussion about breast implants here or anything.)

Quote from: Sexy Talon
So yeah, drawing a line in the sand is seen by most people as "Anything beyond this is completely forbidden, and it's probably best to not really hang out near here"... but for a small minority, it's an invitation to run up right to the line and waggle arms and legs while balancing with most of their body on the forbidden side with both feet technically still on the "good" side.

if this is true then holyshit:
"You could go for what I did with my kid.
Radical Unschooling.
I was assured by many, many people far smarter than me that she'd turn out to be totally spoiled, never eat anything but candy and spend all day watching tv and playing video games, and never learn anything.
Sadly, this has not gone according to plan. Now, at 8, she's obsessively fascinated with learning Physics; she saved up her allowance to buy herself a computer which she is now learning to program in BASIC; her favourite food is broccoli and she frequently refuses junk food."

Well that's just one data point, you need many more to understand what is actually likely to happen if you "unschool" (whatever that is? :P).

Yes I think there's a bug in that feature, when I tried the timer didn't seem to ever run out as intended.

Hey I'm only 18 there's no way I could do something like that it's probably not even legal... And what if the plane intersects with a line, see my point? Exactly.

Also. My school. I promise it will explode if I travel far away. All my homework will be deleted and all my school work will disappear. And I will be denied to universities and I won't be able to move. Actually I will become homeless. You see?! This is serius I don't want to become homeless srsly!!! The berries and mushrooms in the forests will also die so I won't have anything to eat. STOP GROUP PRESSURING ME!!!
