Can you tell me what 17x16 is?
Let me plug that into my computer here. *crunch crunch* Ah here's the answer: 42.
Note that there was a relatively simple solution to the health care situation in the USA that Congress carefully avoided - extend Medicare coverage to everyone. They didn't do that one, mostly because there's no campaign contributions to be had by doing that...
Man, that would have really sucked since doctors usually only take a handful of medicare patients since it only pays 80%. Actually, I'm curious if the "public option" is going to be like this. I'm on medicare, and if I can instead hop on with a public option where I'm able to actually choose a doctor, that's much better.
You know you've been spending too much time on the computer when your friend misdates a check, and you suggest adding a "++" to fix it.
