That's wrong by the way. Every time they remove hours they count as if there were 365 days left rather than the actual number of days left after the reduction. After all the math you still have more than 65 days. Get back to work you lazy asses.

unless it's actually a reflection of her back (in which case it pretty obvious it's some sort of paper mask, or photoshop because the quality is horrible), then the reflection should show the same image.

if you look at the "reflection" and the actual person in the picture, you'll see they are actually two different images. (there's much more of her shoulder showing in the reflection, and the quilt pattern looks different).

Euhm, I'm pretty sure that the medical term is vertebral column or spinal column, while penis is an actual medical term...

I guess France isn't perfect, you have to excuse my nationalist sensibilities as i am French and also don't know much about other countries (I'm just quoting most of this stuff from my medical sociology professor). Like any other nation we have our violent epicenters but sociologically speaking, I feel it's far easier being a French man than an a U.S. man. And let's not start comparing violent crime rates between U.S. and France.
However I am attending university in the U.S. and with a 3.9 gpa and a 36 on my MCAT i'm pretty certain i'll be accepted into a lot of the med schools i've applied for (trying to be a heart surgeon, not exactly brain surgery but still ^^). This means that i know more or less what the life of a medical practitioner entails (numerous doctor shadowing/volunteer work/ physician observations etc...)
This is why I also mentioned American culture in one of my posts. It's true French doctors gain considerably less money than American doctors however the French believe in comfort of living not having the most money possible (even if being a doctor for the money is kind of ridiculous in the first place).
Speaking of nobel prizes i don't doubt that the U.S. has the most considering the research budget (yes that is a problem of more socialist countries). However, some of the greatest names in the field were French (Curie and Pasteur for example). Now if you look at those laureates, most of them are not even American by birth, the U.S. has more than 4 times the French population, and i admit the U.S. has some of the best research facilities and funds in the world making results that much easier to acquire.
Like i said previously or in other posts, the U.S has some of the poorest health outcomes in the 1rst world, that's a fact.
I'm also very skeptical about who they send Nobel prizes to. Obama and Al gore winning the Nobel peace prize?
In the end it all comes down to opinions and pride, so i'll let it go from now on.

The U.S. does not ration health, it disregards the people who can't afford health care, the U.S. does not have long waiting lines because only wealthy Americans can afford the required Health Care, the U.S. is capable of developing said technology because it's corporations are so wealthy from bleeding their customer's dry. Even then the U.S. doesn't have better technology than the rest of these countries because the technology is shared (the only difference is that they charge more for Americans).
What is sure though, is that 40% of Americans can't afford any of the needed health care versus 9% in Canada. People in other first world nations are more satisfied with their health care systems than Americans though, that's for sure.
And just LOL at the "limited government power" line. Let's let the government spy on all our private lives (NSA) but better not let them organize health care so that it's cheaper and more accessible to everyone. Yeah, a single-payer system (the government) centralizes purchasing power and allows leverage in negotiating prices from this life saving technology, to advil...
Though i admit the government might just claim the profits to fund another war...

As it is, the U.S.'s main problem in health care is the financial inefficiency; the multitude of different public and private insurers drive up administrative costs, the entrepreneurial nature of the system makes it impossible to have any kind of cost control.
I agree with the fact that as the U.S. stands it's impossible to have universal health care like in France because so many different aspects of American culture.
In the U.S. only 20% of the population get that prompt reliable health care you speak of, the rest can' afford it. Many Canadians come to the U.S. for immediate health care because they can afford it which isn't true for a lot of Americans. The truth is although the U.S. pays more on health care than other nations, it has poorer health outcomes (with a lower life expectancy than other nations including Canada).
I don't know about Canada's education system but for the French who have the world's best health care system according to the same survey I've been told has no value... (Whatever), Medical school is free (- the university inscription fee which is 100 euros a year), plus students have access to way more federal financial aid than American students (you get 700 euros a month for being in a family of 2 or more children). Plus doctors in France are more than comfortable with what they are being paid because they are insured by the state and have a more than satisfactory salary. American doctors may be wealthy as shit, but one lawsuit and they'll be on the streets begging for change if they don't pay those ridiculously expensive insurances.

Health care isn't free, it's paid for by tax payer's money and that's what every American fails to see. Universal health care means the only costumer of pharmaceutical companies and other methods of health care is the government which essentially means they set the prices. American health care is privatized meaning that if you can't afford it, you're screwed because private companies just don't give a shit about anyone else well being. And i agree, you can control your health by living intelligently but what about genetic diseases and malformations, what about those born with STD's, what about accidents (because unless you live in a bubble there will be some along the way). Are you ready to pay 1 grand for an MRI for a swollen thumb while a french person pays 85 euros, and gets reimbursed by his public health insurer? I believe you have as much control over your food and housing as on your health. The real reason Americans don't want universal health care is because they don't want to pay more taxes. I'll take taxes and free more frequent doctor's visits and guaranteed treatment in case of accidents than a bigger paycheck anyday.
And if that's not enough for you. The U.S.'s health care system ranks 37 according to the World Health organization behind every single first world country with universal health care. France, Italy, Spain are in the top ten. Not to mention the fact that the difference between satisfaction with the health care system is abhorrent in the U.S. compared to countries with Universal health care.
Oh and you know what? as a French citizen you do get free food and housing if you're in desperate need. The people that live on the streets in France are there by choice. But who cares about that, we surrendered in WWII...
