I'd actually be in favor of that. The simple math doesn't do enough to weed out the riff raff. Case in point: Cheri Pi. I know her personally and ... well, don't tell her I said this but she couldn't computer he way out of a wet paper bag.

Yes, dcp, but they also have more social services, and a smaller tax base.

Thanks sugarwolf. Also, my apologies for gendering you male during our firsties battle during Gaylord’s show.

yes that's true. and oil pays for a lot of it too. I'll take their health care over our stupid ass system.
Avatar 10:43am Cecile:

People used to think I was a dude for a while,too. hahhaah. even with the girl's name and whatnot.

I would love their healthcare system, but not so much their small tax base. Surely there has to be a happy medium?

Avatar 10:44am d¢ pät:

yeah sure, but I guarantee, if you ask almost any Norwegian if they'd like to pay less taxes and get our healthcare, they'd laugh there asses off.
Avatar 10:46am Cecile:

Oh, I'm totally sure, Pat. One awful illness can completely wipe you out financially, and so much for the tax base then.

I just worry about sustainability of responsible nations. It's so easy to lose that during a financial crisis.

I invented a killer veg version of fish sauce. It doesn't taste just like it of course but it's a perfect substitute. Involves porcini mushrooms which are pretty fishy.
