Real-Life Frogger Ends In Hospital Visit

samzenpus posted more than 3 years ago | from the going-for-the-logs dept.

Games 314

BigSes writes "A 23-year old man has been hospitalized after police in South Carolina say he was hit by an SUV while playing a real-life version of the video game Frogger. Authorities said the 23-year-old man was taken to a hospital in Anderson after he was struck Monday evening. Before he was hit, police say the man had been discussing the game with his friends. Chief Jimmy Dixon says the man yelled 'go' and darted into oncoming traffic in the four-lane highway. Has it come time to ban some of the classics before someone else goes out and breaks a few bricks with their heads after eating a large mushroom?"

I do. I believe he meant 'natural selection', where natural selection is a driving force for evolution, but in itself is not evolution at all.

On another note, apparently the game Natural Selection 2 is due out very soon. The first was an AMAZINGLY fun mod for half life... i'm not sure the details of NS2 because I just heard about it yesterday but... well... its likely gonna be sick.

You are assuming that they have not already procreated. The majority of procreation seems to occur in the midst of stupid people.

If anything, so called "smart" people who either choose to not procreate or are unable attract the opposite are still alive and yet not contributing anything to the future gene pool.

when it comes to people like this guy, i have compassion for the poor SUV driver and the trauma that person had to endure. i have compassion for the human race when i see there are too many people like him who drive, vote, believe propaganda, call tech support lines and otherwise inflict their idiocy on others.

Re:Stupid is as stupid does. (3, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#34706644)

And if he'd not been insured or covered in any way, do you think the hospital would just go "crap" and not pay the doctors, suppliers of medicines, etc, involved in treating this incident?

No. No they would not. They would just do what they've always done, and jacked up the prices for everyone else, until the hospital was no longer taking a loss.

Emergency room medical costs of those who can't afford it will always be payed by the rest of society, either explicitly and easily predictably and fairly by government mandate, or implicitly and moderately predictably and less fairly by the costs of everyone else who uses that hospital/ER.

In one of those scenarios, the overhead of the system is like 2% of the costs of the overall healthcare system (e.g.: Canada). In the other, it's like 25% (e.g.: U.S.).

Some people figure this out on their own, and then at least respect those that have fallen. Others, perhaps like you, need to be T-boned by a guy with no insurance, then screwed over by your own insurance company, while trying to manage the onset of cystic fibrosis, before they realize that sometimes bad things happen to good people.

I am a recipient of that government insurance and the difference between the negotiated rate (similar to private insurance) and the "raw" rate is often up to 50%. And with insurance people can get preventive care which is very much cheaper than ER visits when conditions get severe. Try again?

Um, I don't think you know how health insurance works. If this guy has paid, say, $2000 for health insurance, and his little foray racks up $20,000 in hospital expenditures, then we have paid the other $18,000 as the other insurance pool members. Where do you think the money comes from, the big money tree in the back of each hospital? I am working on the assumption that someone this idiotic probably would not have been covered if he wasn't forced to pay.

... and yet you neglect the likelihood that, because of Obamacare, the guy retains his health insurance for the next 30 years, paying in $60,000 over that time.

Most people have to visit the ER a few times during their lives, and yet most people don't use as much as they've paid for insurance until the last six months of their lives. The odds are good that, assuming he recovers and has gained some common sense, he will now contribute back his own costs and more over his life, until near the end.

Of course those expenses at the last six months are mostly unnecessary and unwanted by the dying anyway, but planning for that%H%H%H%H%H%OMG NAZI DEATH PANELS!!!!

Yes, that's how all types of insurance work. The point the parent was making was that if this guy does not have insurance, then the hospital has to treat him and, since he's uninsured, the taxpapers foot the bill for 100% of his hospital costs. Under Obamacare he'd be required to purchase his own insurance thereby sparing the taxpayers the burden of paying for his hospital stay.

The reason aspirin pills are $10 in hospitals is because of massive inflation of prices to cover the high ratio of emergency room visits that cannot be paid for by the person in the emergency.

Single payer healthcare of course costs money. It's your choice to decide if some person in an accident needs to 1) have health insurance and 2) prove that before they are allowed to be treated. It's your choice to deny someone health care for some treatable illness that is not life threatening until it is life threatening enough to warrant an emergency room visit. Basically, you'd like people without insurance to be put down like dogs, that's fine. Just remember being patriotic used to mean giving a shit about your fellow citizens, not throwing their lives away to reduce your taxes slightly.

Hopefully you will lose your job, run out of savings, and get into a car accident and die in a hospital parking lot. It's too bad that sort of awesome justice doesn't happen very often.

The reason aspirin pills are $10 in hospitals is because of massive inflation of prices to cover the high ratio of emergency room visits that cannot be paid for by the person in the emergency.

There are at least two reasons you're overlooking for the cost of those pills. First, each one of those is hand-carried by a loving and thoughtful nurse who has triple-checked this against your other medications. It's like room service in a hotel except they also verify that what you ordered is actually good for you. That's a big labor cost. Second, the hospital and everyone on staff there has insurance as well, malpractice insurance. This is so that if they make a mistake and bring you aspirin instead of tylenol, or if they bring you aspirin and unknown to them you have a blood-thinning condition that is exacerbated by aspirin, and then your next of kin sues them for killing you (rightly or wrongly), they don't have to close the entire hospital or sell their home to defend themselves in court.

And by the way, that lawsuit-happy culture is responsible for a lot of the cost of other products as well. Insurance is half the cost of helmets for kids playing American football, because of the risk of injury and the likelihood that the parents will sue the helmet maker "because that's where the money is." So kill all the lawyers and take responsibility for your own medication dosing, and then the aspirin will cost under $10 each.

Re:Stupid is as stupid does. (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#34706830)

You're absolutely right. We wouldn't be paying for his emergency room expenses through increased hospital costs. Instead, we'd be paying for his emergency room expenses through increased insurance premiums. (Here's a clue: when people have insurance, they're more likely to go to the hospital for trivial problems, so more people with insurance means more expenses for insurance to pay.)

Or did you think that if he had insurance then all of a sudden the expenses would just disappear?

Re:Stupid is as stupid does. (1)

Penguinshit (591885) | more than 3 years ago | (#34706916)

That's already true and was true in 2008 before the election. Insurance negotiates rates with hospitals, etc. (based on Medicare rates), so what was your point again?

More like people who have insurance are more likely to go to their family practitioner. People who don't have insurance are more likely to go to the hospital emergency room because the hospitals are prohibited from turning anyone away for anything.

Unless after making it across there was a river with logs and crocs floating in it, this was just simply crossing the street.

What would've happened if he made the river? (0)

I'm sure he picked the place because there were crocodiles to jump on nearby.

I live less than a quarter mile from where this happened, and honestly, I'm not surprised. This country (and the state of SC especially) is still filled with a bunch of idiots.

I'm more worried about the drivers (0)

I feel for the guy that feels guilty for hitting the stupid fuck. The driver is the victim in this incident.
