exuse me the england the vikings conquered was a bunch of warring kingdoms with no knights whatsoever. They were saxons then, the knights arrived with the normans in 1066 just after the vikings. With a professional army and a united kingdom the english easily kept raiders at bay. TLR get your head out of your arse

the vikings conqurered most of england, at the time of knights. so i think that would constitute as the vikings being superior. since the also were considered superior fighters by the knights

still hurts today...this was a few months ago, back in February.

The bill consisted of several X-rays, as well as a 3hr emergency room visit.

I had to work hard to get them to accept payments. I now pay $70 a month.

It's because American's allow private hospitals to charge whatever they feel like charging. Just like the Universities. It's just ruining their economy because greedy people want to make money of something that is pretty much necessary in today's world. America seems to be full of opportunistic bastards that don't give a shit about anyone, which is why it's a shit country now.
#134 - firesky (06/08/2015) [-]
Might wanna add to that:
US has by far the highest private spendings and is still 7th world wide in public spendings going after GDP.
Red in this graph is public spending, grey private in % of GDP.

Dude america's debt is the biggest in the world -_-
User avatar #122 - meganinja (06/08/2015) [-]
America also has the largest economy in the world. Their debt is close to 100 percent of their GDP. Some of those countries higher on the list have MASSIVE debts closer to or even over 200 percent of their GDP.
User avatar #162 - asmodeu (06/08/2015) [-]
USA has the biggest salary per capita, but not the largest economy in the world.

If we're talking only about total GDP and GDP / debt, the European Union is in a better place than the US. And then again, China and Russia are in a much better place in regards to GDP / debt.
User avatar #170 - meganinja (06/08/2015) [-]
USA is the largest economy in the world. The EU is not a country. The USA also does not have the biggest per capita salary, although it is very much up there.

The EU may be in a better place than the US, but again it is not a country. Most of the larger countries that the EU is comprised of are in a terrible position debt wise.

You are right though, China and Russia have lower debts as a percentage, but they aren't first world countries, and I have no idea why Russia is even relevant to this conversation at all.
User avatar #186 - asmodeu (06/08/2015) [-]
I see the EU as a country because its system is fairly similar to that of the US - a bunch of states / countries who have their own governing, mayors / presidents (whatever) and there exists a unified government to watch over all.

Sure, they say it's more of an alliance, but mark my words, we only need a century or so to turn into a full blown country .

User avatar #196 - meganinja (06/08/2015) [-]
I mean it's like calling NAFTA or NATO or UN a country. It's a connection of countries due to various reasons. States in the US are more like provinces than independent countries, although at one point it was otherwise.
User avatar #213 - asmodeu (06/08/2015) [-]
NAFTA is an economic alliance, NATO is a military alliance whilst EU is a political and economical alliance.

Gotta love it when people see two dancing cat comments right next to each other and fail to associate the one that says America's fucked anyways with the one showing that healthcare/=/wealthy country. And the ones that have healthcare and AREN'T in the shitter(Norway, Canada, Germany) all have higher rates than the ones that aren't failing. Granted, I don't believe that current living expenses are FAIR, but it doesn't help the argument by showing several countries with low healthcare rates when half of them are gibe moni plox countries.

>Not adjusted for mortality rates
>Not adjusted for quality of living rehab/pain meds/pysch meds etc.
>Not adjusted for research this kills the statistic

The American medical system is the most expensive in the world, but it also produces the highest quality care. Why do you think rich people always fly to American hospitals?
User avatar #151 - abesimpson (06/08/2015) [-]
"Although you can't afford it, rest assured you have the best healthcare at your disposal"

Is that what they tell you people so you don't stay out of line.

Mortality rates? Quality of life? I feel sorry for you if you truly believe that what you have is the best the world has to offer. These countries listed aren't some barred wastelands with chickens running around the hospital waiting room.

The world outside the US is way more modern and civilized than you think. But of course if they teach you from little that your way of life is the best, then there will be less self reflection on ones government (because we are totes the best in everything hurr durr) and therefore less problems for the higher ups.

I'm still laughing my ass off when you said to account mortality rates. You actually think that you are paying more for a less chance of death. We poor Europeans are just killing our patients left and right because we have no proper training, and that's why we lower the prices... News Flash: people die everyday in the US for not being able to afford healthcare, how bout you account that then?

and btw I'm American and live in Europe (spain). A true patriot isn't someone who blindly defends their country, but someone who can see it's flaws and wants to fix them.
#114 - Rascal (06/08/2015) [-]
In the World Health Report the US ranked 15th. America hasn't been in the top10 in 15 years.

Countries that offer better healthcare than the US do so at half, or less, of the cost.
#47 - Rascal (06/08/2015) [-]
"Why do you think rich people always fly to American hospitals?"

Because they don't. If you're rich enough to choose a private hospital, chances are you'll just go to a great one close to you. The only reason people would choose to go America is because they have medical equipment that isn't available elsewhere.

Not to mention that this isn't the issue here. Even if we assumed that America had all the top 100 hospitals in the world and every single doctor that America produced was a hundred times better than all the rest of the worlds doctors combined, it still wouldn't benefit what you're trying to argue for.

If the public cannot benefit, the system needs to be changed. Privatizing institutions is great in theory, but just like communism it is awful in practice. It's great, because it means that they can choose the options that are most profitable, which in turn can mean better equipment and a higher paid staff. It's awful because they need to be profitable, which means that if you ever need the help, it is sure to cost you more than it is worth.
User avatar #176 - Conquistador (06/08/2015) [-]
He might have been referring to Canadians. The ones with money tend to come over to the US to receive surgeries.
#225 - Rascal (06/08/2015) [-]
That is not because of the level of care.
It is because the Canadian medical system is clogged with smokers and fatties free riding along.
They go to America to pay out the ass to skip the medical lineup.
User avatar #41 - fiveblackmen (06/08/2015) [-]
That isn't really the issue here.
#28 - lozarus (06/08/2015) [-]
Its really useless to have the best quality care if only the elite can use it.
Sure, the mayo clinic must be awesome. But wouldnt you rather have a system that benefits the overall majority of the people instead of a great clinic you are never going to be able to pay?
#51 - vorarephilia (06/08/2015) [-]
The people that matter say no, so no.

Unfunny venting: At no point in my life have I ever hated capitalism more than when, on the phone with the insurance company, they explained that they covered the doctor who preformed the outpatient procedure, but not the anesthesiologist who put me to sleep for it. I still had to pay several hundred dollars to get a camera shoved up my ass.
#54 - Rascal (06/08/2015) [-]
Yes, vorarephilia, they don't pay for your sexual misadventures.
#57 - vorarephilia (06/08/2015) [-]
Not only did they not record the full video for me, they didn't dress up like grays.

it's like my grandpa said mid cardiac arrest to the helicopter paramedics: "If I have to shell out a couple thousand dollars, I might as well get my monies worth. Now give me my glasses, I want to see the view."

I fell down the stairs, hit 13 steps on the way down. I wait a few days because it didn't hurt right away...by the second day it hurt to breathe, or even move. Went to the emergency room, my insurance company drops me, citing non-payment...and now I have a $2000 hospital bill I can't pay.

User avatar #39 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
That's not what we're saying. The point is that there's a lot of people on this site that are too young to remember when you had to pay per text to send and receive. And naturally, they think I'm wrong, so they all bandwagon and thumb me down even though I'm very much in the right. Wonderful, isn't it?
User avatar #40 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
From your first comment, it sounds like you are just lecturing people on what a text costs to send, and not addressing the fact that it's the price per received text everyone is talking about. I think the point is that it sounds like you misunderstood the content.
User avatar #43 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
I fully understand what the content says, and my comment says nothing specifically about sending. It mentions texts in general
User avatar #44 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
Exactly. You just say texts in general, when it's obviously only the receiving texts that is in question.
User avatar #46 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Because you had to pay for both sending and receiving. What difference does it make?
User avatar #48 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I don't think people are thumbing you down, because they are pretentious scumbags that just think they are right. I think they are thumbing you down because they thought you misunderstood the question, since if you don't know that it costed money to receive texts back in the middle ages, that seems like a fair assumption to make.
User avatar #49 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
I don't know. Some of them seem to have it out for me a bit considering that they went out of their way to thumb down every reply I've made, including the one that I only use to correct a typo.

But either way, if they just read a few of the replies and my responses to them they'd see that isn't the case.
User avatar #50 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I know what you mean. I once made a stupid joke, where I wrote "gif" as "jif", and I got 60 thumbs down and 10 replies telling me that I was a neckbeard retard, and all it was, was a bad joke, which I also replied with, but those replies just got lost in the red sea too.

Funnyjunk well, basically any image hosting site is really infamous for their bandwagon thumbing.
User avatar #52 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Yeah. I once made what I thought was a very sensible comment and it got 80ish red thumbs. It was because I used the word pantsu, and it was on a post about Japanese shit. I thought I'd try to be funny and use that word. FJ taught me I was wrong for trying to stray outside the norm. And like you, all of my replies explaining myself only ended up covered in red thumbs.
User avatar #53 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I think getting circle jerked on like that is what creates trolls.
User avatar #55 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Yeah. I can see that.

Its not something that really worries me though. This amount of red thumbs is nothing to me. It's pretty annoying though.
User avatar #56 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I feel the exact same way. One of my replies on that "jif" thread basically said the same. Thumbs are cool to get acknowledged for being funny or creative, but the red ones only make you think about your comment one more time, and if you still think there's nothing wrong with it, then it's just irritating, because it shows how retarded other people can be.

I can understand why you would care about red thumbs back when there were thumb bans, but not any longer, at least if you have a decent amount of thumbs. I have a shit load of red thumbs for telling people how gay or stupid they sound, because it satisfies me more to call people out on their shit than being a part of the circle jerk and getting the greenies.
User avatar #57 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Its kind of funny how much people talk about our "free speech" here when you can post a different opinion and get shit on my red thumbs and replies to the point that you don't want to share that opinion anymore. Its like "we have free speech but if your opinion isn't the same, fuck you." It makes zero sense.
User avatar #66 - testaburger (05/11/2015) [-]
Free speech means people can tell you that your opinions are worthless and that you should shut the fuck up.

It makes all the sense in the world.
The fuck kinda hippie feel-good kind of free speech do you want?
#74 - OtisMcWonderful (05/12/2015) [-]
Absolutely. But it's just how FJ quickly silences opinions. It's like we all have to join the hivemind to post here. No one will post their true opinion because it won't get thumbs, but rather the opposite. And people won't say they agree with it because they don't want those red thumbs either. Certain opinions aren't wrong. It's just that they're different, and FJ goes apeshit hivemind and red thumbs it into oblivion. All it takes is a single, tiny catalyst to set that shit off. See pic related. It's exactly what I mean. My one word reply set off the red thumb storm and got him -151 thumbs.

User avatar #59 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
Again, I love to call people out on their shit if they are being too retarded with their pony shit or too gay with their anime trash, but the way FJ just gather around random comments and starts circle jerking, that is just fucked up.

I don't know if it's me, but I feel like FJ has changed a lot, both for the better and worse. I began lurking here in 2010, because I heard that the content was mostly reposts and there were a lot of weird pony shit and stuff, but that the comments were hilarious, and people were right, but when I browse imgur now, they seem to have taken that role completely, and FJ is just the place, where memes go to die and where every fandom jerks around posts and comments of their fandom.

User avatar #60 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
I don't really mind how FJ is right now. Ive lurked for 12ish years, had an account for almost 5, and posted comments for under a year.

That was pretty much it for me. Cheats were my main use, but I still searched random things on MetaCrawler to see what popped up. I searched for funny jokes one day, and FJ was one of the results. I've been here ever since.

Then again, maybe I'm just remembering the good things. When I think closer about it, I can't remember when there wasn't a retarded fad or fandom I was whining about, LOL
