A good example of how the uninsured often get better treatment. The uninsured are diagnosed, treated and released quickly, because hospitals don't figure to make much money out of the deal.

In contrast, here's what happens if you're covered, courtesy of the New York Times Health Blog

Birthplace of most European and West Asian languages traced to Turkey

Using methods borrowed from epidemiology, researchers have identified Anatolia, a peninsula that is now part of Turkey, as the origin of the major language families of Europe and West Asia.

English is one member of a large family, the Indo-European languages, that are now spoken by a huge swath of the world. But where they originated is the subject of controversy, with experts undecided between two areas of western Asia.

Jay Leno's Monologue - Mad Magazine Version

It was announced this week that The Tonight Show is making budget cuts — which means not only a pay cut for Jay Leno, but also the loss of 25 jobs on the show. As much as we could argue that the real victims of The Tonight Show are anyone who’s been forced to watch an episode, this is still sad news.

Sergei Diaghilev was born to a wealthy and cultured family in Selischi (Novgorod Governorate), Russia; his father, Pavel Pavlovich, was a cavalry colonel, but the family's money came mainly from vodka distilleries.

Six Famous Songs that Don't Mean What You Think

via Cracked.com...

Sometimes, the more you know about a song the less you enjoy it. You start out thinking the singer of some ballad totally identifies with your situation, then later find out most musicians are creepy sex maniacs, and boring at the same time.
With that in mind, here's six popular songs that aren't nearly as awesome once you find out what they actually mean.

JJ Said 080612

The third and final part of the made for Kindle series, Erotic Tales from The Burrow, is finished and available at Amazon.

Based on the title and cover picture, it's plain to see that some men inside The Burrow are considered no better than livestock, and accordingly, they will be unmercifully milked.

Meanwhile, recruiters are busy screening for the next herd of cattle.

Here's a piece:

So, there he is sprawled atop Pete, his chest sticking up in the air. He's staring at himself in the ceiling mirror, helplessly watching as four, mature, beautiful (even though his morality training says they're not, his carnal instincts say they are), naked females work him over. Their tongues and lips and delicate fingers inundate him with licks and kisses and gentle pinchings to his pecs and nipples and stomach and belly. His legs and feet are worshiped, along with his arms and their pits, and finally, he shuts his objecting mouth and allows himself to feel.

His desperate straining to break free transforms into flexing undulations. Displays of his masculinity. Prideful exhibitions of his manly physique. His cock cannot lie. It fills with blood. Flips onto his belly, and whatever remains of his do-gooder mindset that says this is so wrong is completely obliterated when Brianne takes his dick into her mouth, rams it to the back of her throat, extends her tongue and licks his balls.

The Milking Tank Menagerie is 99 cents.
  
Combined, the three books comprising Erotic Tales from the Burrow total about 35,000 words and cost just under five bucks.

After the liberation of Buchenwald, Brazda settled in Alsace, northeastern France, in May 1945 and ...
