So long and thanks for all the fish!

Hi, everybody!  I’m thinking of deleting my Tumblr… But I have stuff on here I like.  I’m going offline for a month or so, and If I find my quality of life much improved, I’m leaving permanently   My RL friends know where to find me.  In the words of a great-  

“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.
On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”
He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.
Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.   
To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous. 
This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.

Dear abortion debaters of all sides,

Men have indeed had full term pregnancies both wanted and unwanted, they have had abortions as well. Some men have uteruses.

CISMALES are the ones who don’t get a say in this. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚

Let’s not demean the non-women who’ve been pregnant.

Love,

Rosie

^^ This! ^^

You know what i want? I want season 3 to start with on the day that sherlock died a year or two later and lestrade is having a meeting with a group of people and saying “today is the day that a great detective, sherlock holmes, died”
And then everyone in the room gets a text that says “WRONG”

That would be Genius.
