  • This is one of the main reasons I tend to avoid used items. Actually, the only time I buy used is if the game is out of print, and it is extremely expensive to buy an actual new copy. When I do actually break down and get new, I have to see it physically before purchasing. I know GameStop doesn't enjoy seeing me come in a purchase a used game.

    "I see you have 5 used copies based on the quantity of boxes on the shelf. May I see ALL discs and make my selection?"

    Though no matter the condition of the disc, I simply cannot buy it without the original packaging. Those handwritten covers just do not fly for me. Being OCD is annoying.

    Well, I'm a bit annoyed that the flu is going around, which leaves me completely by myself at work. It's not that I don't think I can handle it, but I am still fairly new at this job and there are a few things that I just don't know how to do yet. If I actually get a customer today, I'm basically just going to have to tell them that they need to come back Monday when the manager will be back. Having the immune system of an X-Man has its benefits, but I would rather be at home on the couch watching TV all day. I have never had the flu that I can recall...

    • I woke up this morning to find that my shower was broken. Then I found out that my uncle is in the hospital with shortness of breath, chest pain, and possibly even a broken neck.

      • ...OK, I hope your Uncle is OK and all, I really do...but the fact you're using his illness or accident to yoddle your political view point is downright disturbing.

        • http://www.photius.com/rankings/healthranks.html - I dunno. But apparently, it's not that great at the moment. America is ranked 34th in the world by the World Health Organization. Although I understand that life expectancy has been sqewed somewhat in the results by murders, car accidents, obesity figures and a few other things. So only if you had less fat people being murdered in car crashes, you guys would be A-OK.

          Seriously, leave family and politics aside. It's freakishly creepy.

            You can't compare extremes. While a 90 year old homeless guy in America might not be able to get the best chemotherapy in the world, the majority of Americans, the middle (and working) class do. We don't have the massive welfare state entitlement system here, though Obama is trying to implement it against the will of the American people.

            • Silly me, thinking facts and figures would alter your mind. And it's good to know you deserve to live, just so long as you can cough up the cash. Money really does make you a more deserving person!

              Still creepy though.

                Everyone still gets emergency medical treatment. But homeless people shouldn't expect to have the taxpayers pay for his billions of dollars worth of treatment. It's a drain on the system and not sustainable.

                Those people can still receive their super expensive treatment though through the local community coming together and helping out, churches and religious organizations taking him in, and charitable organizations donating to pay for his treatment. Not to mention that the US government (fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) does have have some social programs to help uninsured people get top notch healthcare (Medicare and Medicaid).

                • Yet, plenty of other nations do. With a higher quality of care than the US. 33 other countries, certainly.

                  Also? Still creepy.

                    Yet those "plenty of other nations" have massive amounts of debt, a culture that rewards idleness, and socialism. And that source you used hardly looks professional and reliable. It looks like it was designed by a 12 year old. Again, you can't compare the extremes of one system to the average of another.

                          Just an incidental question. Have you ever travelled outside of the USA?

                            Yes, on numerous occasions. What are you

                                The US has a higher rate of Unemployment than the UK right now, (not by much, but I think the US is on 9.1 compare to our 8.something of the population out of work) while the US has a debt of $14.5 trillion compared to the UK's £966.8 billion (or $1.5 trillion converted) while our populations are 307,006,550 for the US and 62,218,761 for the UK.

                                In other words, we have lower unemployment and roughly half the national debt, per person, than you do - while maintaining the NHS, amongst other 'socialist' projects such as free schools and public works repairs and projects.

                                The figures quoted are from the World Health Organisation - it's just simpler to look them up there than read through the report. But you can easily enough find, and confirm, the report if you so wish. As for the comparison - yeah, a number of American folks aren't impressed. If only the study didn't count a bunch of things America would be much higher. Oddly, only some Americans seem to feel this way...
