Interesting, both look like humans though, which one is the wax one?

Well, from the fact that there's a hand actively sculpting the left one, I'ma say that's the fake. Don't worry, I had to stare at it for a second too; Mark is just so mortified in the right picture that his humanity is drained out.

Trying to get into urgent care but I lost my proof of insurance, now I have to harass my boss on a Sunday bc the insurance agency doesn't have customer service on the weekends. And I can't stop coughing up green and brown shit from my lungs

Without the cue of the brush I'd probably struggle if I didn't know what Zuckerberg looked like in the past, and looks like now.

Man that's insane. I feel for you. Here it would be "treatment now, proof later". And the treatment would be free. I can't really fathom the idea of a place where basic treatment isn't a universal right.

EDIT: In Michael Moore's documentary 'Sicko' he has an example from the UK. In NHS hospitals they have a 'cashier's window'. But ... you don't pay there. You show receipts from public transport and they pay you back for having to travel to the hospital and back. Which is all about fairness: the principle is that you shouldn't have to pay more for the service because they didn't build the hospital close to where you live.

Honestly, the entire basic of the American medical system scares the crap out of me. Not least because our right-wing politicians look on your healthcare "model" (loosely speaking) with glee and want to implement that here. The only saving grace is that the US model is such an obvious train-wreck of a system that they can't get any political traction to push it through.

The one on the right appears to be made of yellowish wax. Someone is painting the one on the left, so I assume that's the one that is actually wax.

We have a samespirited practice here were you can show your healthcare summons paper and receive free bus rides. Or at least we do here in my landsthing. It's probably fairly common though, my landsthing is fairly centrist.

I pay hundreds of dollars a month for the right to pay $13k toward healthcare I really don't want to use, mostly because I'd prefer to have money to live than get healthcare to hurt less.

This one time I thought I was dying so I rang a bunch of hospitals to see if their ambulances were bulk-billed and apparently they weren't but that was okay because around that point I stopped dying anyway. >.>

Yeah, medical stuff is fucked up. Glad you're still with us.

We're all busy playing Soulforged!   
For real though, it is a bit slow.

Same here.
