Double post because I am not ruining my shitpost above: that's not exactly universal. In Brazil, at least, by law you can request a generic alternative to the prescribed medication at the pharmacy.

Point being, I never said it was. That was in direct response to LordBaal talking about how it is in south America.

I kinda thought it was clear this is about the USA specifically. I should have written "if people (in the USA) were shopping for themselves"

I have mentioned at least once that I'm talking about the USA, specifically, in the bit where I specifically excluded Europe. I would have thought it was obvious that the target of the criticisms was specifically USA when I pointed out that the criticisms didn't extend to places like Europe.

I thought you were talking about the US specifically, but I am pretty sure you're not 'murrican, so I thought it extended to the rest of the anglosphere.

Definitely not :) because the rest of the anglosphere have national health providers and aren't the wild west like the USA.

I have a friend who was from Texas and he told me how his friend broke his leg there, and they couldn't get treatment at any nearby hospital in the USA because he didn't have insurance, so they drove him to Mexico and he got free treatment at the first place they stopped.

He told me in about 2003, well before I saw the doco Sicko, but it's effectively the same plot. Americans can't get treated in the USA because they don't provide treatment to mere peasants, yet you go to a nearby nation and they just treat you no questions because you're sick.

Perhaps I'm just overthinking it and the communal and personality appeal really is just that strong.

Nope, you're not overthinking it at all. I don't understand it either.


It's almost like different people have different tastes! But that would by crazy.

See you can put it that way but you know if a substantial subset of people suddenly started thinking watching paint dry was entertaining then I'd be confused too.

Here by law physiciana must prescribe the component, not any brand (they can only suggest a brand) and then you can go and buy whatever brand you want, except no, because there are no medicines and the ones that you can find are worth several times you paycheck but that's another separated issue.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Also since we have no rage thread any more. We're currently under and almost countrywide fire-making prohibition over here and I smell somebody in the neighbourhood grilling.

It's a shame I'm so chronically conflict avoidant.

Fires contained within grills for cooking usually are considered an exception to fire bans though arent they? Maybe you should double check with your fire department on that.

No, they are certainly not. Only grill what's allowed is one without a fire.

Yup! I have no idea if electric grills can even remotely create the same kind of flavour but supposedly such things exist.

I do not understand how people can acknowledge, even regularly complain about problems they have, while simultaneously engaging in behaviours that actively make those problems worse.

My mind boggles.

Are you referring to something from your own day, or to, perhaps, my comment about fear of conflict above?

My own thing. I know it was cryptic and vaguebooking, for which I apologise, but it's personal and I'm odd about things like that.

It does, however, need to be expressed, lest I break something (probably myself) before I talk about it with the person that needs the talking, because I appear to be stupendously angry about it, which is bothersome in itself.

Well it fits in regards to me too, because it is like literally everything I do and don't do.

Spoiler answer: it's because I am weak and unworthy
