    To sum it up, its debatable whether American healthcare or (ill just say European to avoid specifics) is more expensive. Because Americans pay about 40% of their incomes on healthcare, but Europeans have higher tax rates, so its hard to calculate exactly. I would wager American healthcare balances out to be slightly cheaper, but thats not based on actual evidence and I wouldnt be surprised if it was to the contrary (European healthcare being slightly more cheap).

    I have sources that say US healthcare is more expensive, but again, its hard to really tell. Also its objectively true that European healthcare is better than US healthcare. Unless i see more evidence to suggest a different conclusion, this is what I'm going with. Ill say with the exception of Canada (which is also Single-Payer) because the US receives a good amount of Canadians fleeing to US healthcare for various surgeries.

    its a lot of fun if you like sci-fi and lots of blood with creepy, but cool creatures! It only cost me $10, so its a pretty great deal unless you really care about the multiplayer. There is basically no one lol and there is no split screen for co-op. Also my code for online play was already taken cause its a used game (i have a free 2 day pass that is next to useless cause no one plays lol).

    I really only got the game for the single player experience anyways, and for $10, its perfect.

    I haven't played Dead Space, so i just watched the recap in the menu (the Gamestop i go to only carries Dead Space 2 and 3 used, but i got 2 because apparently its better and scarier than 3).

    Basically its a survival horror game (very linear so far) where infections spread to humans and turn them into Necromorphs, whose goal is to kill and infect other humans. Isaac (the main character) defeated this structure that basically spread the disease and thought it was over; however, the government of the space station he escaped to is corrupt and built another similar structure. So the Necromorphs spread to this giant space station.

    basically you shoot upgraded zombies, except you have to shoot them in the limbs to totally kill them instead of the head, which makes it slightly more difficult because they move fast. So naturally I'm playing the easiest mode: casual.

    Just google "Necromorph" and you'll see what they look like.

    also i bought Dead Space 2 and that is fun as heck. I beat 2 chapters before i realized i had just started the 3rd... they really should have put something to point out chapter changes.

    Also its amazing how less scary the game becomes when you finally receive your weapon. Running around without a weapon is real creepy!

    I dont know the singles meta very good, but I could see Ninetales being like RU because its kinda frail and has meh sp. att, but a great ability and decent moves despite having a limited move pool.

    Im considering adding like 1 or 2 more sentences going into some more detail, but its something that may or may not prematurely "spoil the pot" for the public sector side. I say may or may not because it depends on the reader's knowledge of political economy. The info is 100% true neither side can deny, but still lol. Also I'm going to have the info anyways later and I dont think it needs to be in the intro anyways. Also i prefer shorter introductions, and for me, the intro thus far is absurdly long for me lol.

    I'm going to be researching the leftist side of the argument for this, but if you have some good articles or stats for me... please send them.

    Here is my introductory paragraph. if there are grammar/spelling/undesirable or subpar language its because i wrote it in like 10 minutes without checking it over

    "Since the culmination Civil War in 1865, the debate in the United States between states’ rights and federal control ceased and was replaced by the still-occurring debate as to the extent the federal government should have power. With this debate has come increased questioning of the private sector model and whether the government should be handed total authority over certain sections of the economy, such as the healthcare or water utilities industries. It is essential to first define terms before delving into the topic. A free market is a market where the means of production and capital is totally private with little no government regulation, much less ownership. The players in the market have a vested interest in maximizing profit from the land, service, or product being sold, and likewise, the consumer desires the lowest price and superior quality. On the other hand, the public sector relies on socialized means of production and collective ownership of capital. Private proprietors are replaced with bureaucracy more or less loyal to the dictates of elected officials in office. In the public sector, pricing is not based on market supply and demand, but rather, the demands of voters as politicians are reliant on consistent votes. Often this will result in visible lower prices and, depending on the industry, a more equitable distribution of goods, services, and utilities- for democracy wills it. However, while the visible prices are lower in the public sector, the private sector succeeds in reducing unseen costs by being more economically efficient for a myriad of reasons, many of which are the result of monopolization and artificial pricing."

About Me

  • About gimmepie
    Quick Self-Introduction
    I'm gimmepie. My actual name is Daniel but I generally don't use that much around the forums. Feel free to leave a VM.
    Biography
    I've been around PC for a few years now and honestly I love it here. PC's grown to be oddly special to me over my years of using it an escape from real life and I've met a lot of great people and wonderful friends here. On PC you can typically find me in the Roleplay Theatre, Daily, Round Table, PC's Dubtrack room or The Underground. I often pop up in the Treehouse, Forum Games, Battling and Team building, the Lab or on our battle server too though. Basically I'm all over the place.

    Outside of PC I'm a competitive ballroom dancer and enjoy spending my time social dancing, training or teaching at the studio I attend. I'm also studying to achieve my Bachelor Degree of Education (Primary) and a Diploma of School Aged Education and Care whilst attempting to become a freelance writer. If there's anything else you want to know feel free to ask!

    PC Supporter since 2014 (Currently Crystal Tier)
    Moderator of the Roleplay Theatre since June 2015
    Moderator of the Round Table since September 2015
    Moderator of the Underground since January 2016
    Daily Staff since April 2016

    Most RPs GM'd at once: Six (I'm pretty sure that's a record but I dunno).
    Interests
    My interests are pretty varied and they keep me sane when I'm supposed to be studying.

    As I said before I teach at my local ballroom studio, I also train there myself as I am also a competitor. Dancing is one of the most important parts of my life.

    I also love music, a very wide range of it too. I listen to everything from Rock to rap to country. My favourite band is Linkin Park but there are many other artists I love (far too many to list here so VM me if you're curious).

    Pokemon has been a part of my life since I was about six. My first game was Pokemon Stadium for the N64 and I watched the anime religiously. These days I'm still in love with the franchise and I buy the main series games whenever they come out. I also sometimes battle on PCs Showdown server. These days I'm not as fond of the anime, but I haven't seen X/Y yet so I don't know.

    I am a big lover of improvisational and stand-up comedy. I am arguably the biggest fan of Whose Line Is It Anyway in my country and I spend hours watching it and stand-up shows. I often consider giving stand-up a shot, but I struggle to be funny on cue and I don't have a very good stage presence.

    I'm not much of a gamer, but I do enjoy a bit of gaming sometimes. My favourite game is The Last of Us but Starcraft 2 is a close second.

    I am an anime lover and, unlike Western shows with which I am very picky about genre, I will watch almost any genre. My favourite anime of all time is Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.

Music Mince

Well I can hardly call this a weekly series anymore, but I think a Music Mince is long overdue. If you don’t know (or remember) what this series is about, I introduce you to ten songs that I’ve been particularly enjoying the past week in the hopes that you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. Time to dig in!


Number One
Song: Leave Your Lover
Artist: Echoes



Info: This is a simple song, with simple but well

Top Thirty Anime Series

Alright, this is the final entry for this mini-series. So far I've shared with you not only just how big a weeb I've become but also twenty of my thirty favourite anime series. Below is the final ten series that are, in my opinion, the best of the best.

Number Ten - Orange


Orange is an anime that is weirdly similar to Erased even though this is a drama/romance series not a mystery/thriller. The premise

Number Twenty - Akame ga Kill


Akame ga Kill is sort of like the GoT of anime. It takes you into a large and corrupt kingdom, introduces you to a group of characters with questionable morals, makes you love

Top Thirty Anime Series

Having been sick all year (not an overstatement), I've had a lot of time on my hands and I've spent a great deal of that time catching up on the enormous number of anime I've wanted to see and not yet been able to. With that in mind I figured it'd be good to close out the year with a brief series showcasing the series I have enjoyed the most in my decent into full weebdom.

Review Aloo - Sun & Moon

Welcome readers to my first attempt at a game review. I'm not much of a gamer myself in all honesty, but I've been playing the Pokemon Games for a long time now and I feel like it'd be remiss of me not to do this particular review. If this goes well, there might be more game reviews in the future. I'll try to refrain from giving too many spoilers, but read at your own risk. Onwards!
