Re: Health care costs reduced!

Re: Health care costs reduced!

Re: Health care costs reduced!

I've been a single man with no kids in the UK earning a lot less than married men in the very same job! It's a complete rip-off when you suddenly realise you are subsidising the other man's family...

Re: Budweiser was nasty before, but this ....

I always wondered why that was! Seems a bit irresponsible not to let us know what % of alcohol is in it, and what we have actually consumed in units if you ask me. I'm drinking Miller these days, in...

Wink Re: Interesting site giving population data per zipcode

I don't know maybe they went somewhere else. I mean I saw a bumper sticker saying 'Oklahoma is OK', hardly a boast is it now? Surely it should read 'Oklahoma is better than OK'? Not sure a place...

Re: Interesting site giving population data per zipcode

Re: Shark attacks

No surprise to me really. I saw one at fairly close range while I was messing around with my float at North Padres Island. Scarey thought really since there is 40 miles of beach there and anywhere...
