Doctors Are Creating Too Many Patients

sunilhari Absolutely (566 comments)

Doctors have a much lower threshold for diagnosis of "sick people" because if they miss anything, they can get sued for malpractice (founded lawsuit or not). Even if the lawsuit is completely without merit, most lawyers will settle instead of clearing the doctor with a full trial due to cost. So when the threat of lawsuit is over a doc's head, good medicine goes out the window and lawsuit-preventing medicine goes into full effect.

I realize not every doctor is actually good, and that they can make egregious errors and need to be corrected. Enact tort reform, cap damages, and actually encourage preventative medicine instead of paying lip service to it and you'll get lower costs and better yield for the non-sick 999.

I don't expect a doctor to start caring about the other 999 until that 1 possibly sick person can't sue him and take everything he owns.

Is Setting Up an Offshore IT Help Desk Ethical?

sunilhari It's absolutely ethical (826 comments)

Someone is offering you money to perform legal work for them. How is this unethical?

In fact, you could make the argument that it would be unethical to turn down the job because your family would suffer due to the lack of income.

What Has Your Phone Survived?

sunilhari Re:dropped it in water (422 comments)

I was playing golf and my Nokia 6680 flew out of the cart somewhere along the course. Overnight, there was a thunderstorm, and so I wrote it off. I got a call from a guy the next day saying that he found my phone! Apparently, it wasn't working when he found it in a two-inch puddle on the fairway, so he dumped out the water, dried it off with a golf towel, and it powered right up.

Only damage happened when I took apart the screen to hair-dry the water out of it.
