US Life Expectancy May Have Peaked

VeeCee Greatest Health Care System EVA (1053 comments)

All I can say is thank god we have so many people fighting against health care reform. Sure, the people with the 3rd world life expectancy might have access to preventitive health care that could bring them up to par with the dreaded Europe, but is it really worth giving in to Obama's death panel nazi plan just to save a few hundred thousand American lives??

Staying In Shape vs. a Busy IT Job Schedule?

VeeCee From the sound of it, you can't (865 comments)

Honestly, those are hellish hours and frankly I think you're insane for working that much. My honest answer, as someone who works out 6 days a week but works a pretty normal 9-5 is that, if I had your job, I wouldn't work out either.
