You can't stop the food chain by removing yourself from it

I honestly don't care if baby chicks are used for food.
Yeah sure it is crazy and messed up but at the same time why bother? It's the cycle of life. Trying to change that cycle is just stupid....You wanna know an interesting fact about herbivores? They mostly get fucked by predators.

that is about the only thing that makes sense
energy is speed squared multiplied by mass divided by two. When you are moving at highspeeds even small objectives will hold a lot of power: a bullet has comparable energy to a human bodytackling you afaik. Now imagine you are being bodytackled by someone going hundreds of miles per hour.
It gets even more absurd when you consider the really ridiculous speeds: Not only does energy grow with its square (so pretty fucking fast), if you approach lightspeed which I think Flash does you start getting heavier to stop you from going over it, making the impact even harder

It's because if they didn't crack down on it they might get fucked out of their Warcraft rights.

It's strictly a copyright issue. The law in the US is such that if you want to own copyright you need to aggressively defend it or lose it. If Blizz had not shut down the server they would have risked losing their ip. And risking the ip of the most popular subscription based mmo in the world is not a smart business move.
It sucks that it's the case but no matter if they wanted to allow it or not, the law has Blizz's hands tied.

I can almost guarantee you that vast majority of people who play free WoW servers wouldn't go to legit WoW exactly because it's paid.
They are losing clients because they are making WoW more and more shitty, not because someone created a vanilla server that was actually good.

How about them crippling taxes and having to wait months for basic treatments
#47 - Jowi (05/02/2016) [-]
Waiting months for basic treatment? You mean stuff that's non-life threatening?
Two people I work with have a 9 year old son who was tested, diagnosed and had treatment begun within like 2 weeks.
I went into the emergency room after my stomach closed up and I was seen, put in a private room and treated within maybe half an hour.
Conversely my friend cut her leg with glass and was seen within an hour but not treated for maybe 3.
It's called prioritising and you'd be an idiot to think doctors everywhere in the world don't do it somehow. I'm thankful that the logic behind my healthcares priorities is risk assessment rather than profit

Treatment of a dying person is mandatory in american ERs. They just bill you after on lifethreatening things.
#57 - anon (05/02/2016) [-]
You still get the surgery, American hospitals have to give treatment, they aren't allowed to throw a dying patient out on the street. It's the crippling debt afterwards that really gets you
#54 - Elk (05/02/2016) [-]
You know that we're not paying the full prices of the surgery, right? I've had a few multi-ten thousand dollar surgeries, and I'm about to have another one. With all four combined, I'll probably have totaled $1,000 or so, including physical therapy and all that, and I even got some of that money back because of Aflac's "if you get hurt and miss work, it doesn't hurt to miss work" policy. I know that not everybody has insurance that's as good as mine, but we're not all paying $60,000 medical bills to get stuff done.
I've also read that we have better medical facilities. I don't know how accurate it is, but you win some; you lose some.
TL;DR you're a meanie.
#50 - Darianvincent (05/02/2016) [-]
It's more how fast you can get into treatment for specialized things. Not sure if it's all private healthcare but here they have a limit on how much they can pay, you'll get much better treatment than somebody on medicare or whatever though.
I think you guys have the same system with private healthcare there don't you? You wouldn't pay for a simple surgery but if you had private ontop of the free stuff you just wouldn't have a wait time.
#56 - Jowi (05/02/2016) [-]
Well here we have private health care companies like Bupa and stuff. You can chose to get health insurance through them at a cost, but you still have to pay National Insurance which pays for the welfare state including the NHS.
Obviously there is a difference in quality for the private companies that don't have anywhere near the overheads of the NHS and are profit-driven so you can be seen quicker for stuff, nicer buildings, private rooms as standard that kind of thing.
However the actual medical side of it is probably the exact same quality. Although differing regional health boards have different levels of wealth and therefore in different areas you will get nicer hospitals and clinics you will never intentionally I use that word deliberately because there are some horror stories you hear but I'm sure that's the same of stories from some hospitals in the states be given poorer quality of care because of wealth/location/whatever.
As for the NHS it depends what you mean by specialised areas. For example if you had a heart attack and needed a bypass operation they would do it ASAP because it was life threatening. But if your knee has a problem that can probably wait for a while they may schedule you in a few weeks.
Treatment is the same. Prescriptions can be taken to any chemist and dispensed or maybe ordered for as soon as possible. Prescriptions are also free in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
If it was a physical therapy thing then perhaps you would need to wait a while for an appointment but again the wait usually decided by the urgency of the health issue
GP practices have appointments that you can book usually on the same day but maybe a few days in advance but if you desperately needed to see a GP almost all practices have the ability to do an emergency appointment.
All round the NHS is pretty fucking amazing. There are nearly 70 million people covered by a single system where if you're feeling ill you can just get it sorted to the best of medical sciences ability. I like to thing I'm a good mix of left and right wing but no matter what I'm 100% behind the NHS and there's a reason that we've had a majority of Conservative governments here in the UK since the creation of the NHS and not one of them has tried to dismantle it completely (although the current one is selling it off piece by piece and the guy who is Health Secretary also owns shares of private healthcare companies)
The only negative point I would make is personal.
As a long term sufferer of depression I would say that mental health services are underfunded. That alongside the fact that being mentally unwell is considered "cool" right now as it leads to people being "beautifully broken" or whatever has led to the service being quite overrun.
I was in a depression control group once that for a start I'd had to wait six months for and there was meant to be about 6 of us but instead there were about 14. On one side I had a dude literally crying with scars all over his arm and the guy on the other side of me talking about how he was "depressed" and it affected him by making socialising harder for him. Still sucks but isn't the same thing.
There was also a story the other day of a healthboard repeatedly rejecting a woman who was asking for help telling her she didn't need it, until she killed herself. There will be a government inquiry though but still it's appalling.
It's one in the same problem. So many people crying wolf some genuinely, some not we're obviously gonna miss some of the wolves when they start cutting people's wrists

Went through chemo, surgery, got steel bones
And I'm nbot even bankrupt and begging on the street
#45 - Darianvincent (05/02/2016) [-]
Those are the fucking worst Really aggressive rounds of chemo for a year and a half, the most irritating being a 2 day long iv drip. It's really weird picking up a prescription and hearing "you saved 3k using your kaiser card today".
