I had medicaid when I was a kid. So what did the hospital do? They kept giving me a bunch of expensive tests and exams (unneeded, but my mom didn't know better), which the government would pay for. Since it kept turning out so expensive, the government cut my medicaid. Hospital wins, I lose. I remember telling my friend, and he said the same thing happened to him. I wonder how many more places this exists, where hospitals take advantage in order to get money.

stupid_is writes with news that Duke Nukem Forever has now gotten a firm US release date: May 3rd. It will release worldwide three days later. The game was resurrected last fall by Gearbox Software and 2K Games after 3D Realms' 12-year attempt at development came to an end in 2009 when the company closed its doors.

If God had not given us sticky tape, it would have been necessary to invent it.
