Wandered into D&D for half a second and instantly ran into this.

I changed jobs early this year and got a COBRA packet for the lull between gigs. It was going to be something insane like $1300 for 4 weeks of COBRA coverage. So my options were:

1. Pay out the goddamn nose for COBRA knowing I probably won't even use it AND that even if I did have to use it I'd just be paying for the same high deductible plan I already had, so I'd be looking at $1300 + the full medical costs anyway.
2. Shop for a bare minimum Covered CA plan that I would then have to drop in a month, which would also be expensive and also a huge time sink and also not pay for a lot.
3. Go uninsured for a month and pray to all the religious deities that I didn't have a medical emergency during the brief window and get pounded into infinite medical debt. (What I chose because I'm young and reckless )

Insurance and medical costs in this country are so goddamn fucked and all it takes is one little thing going wrong at the bad time to potentially ruin your finances forever.

Now for an adult who has ever read anything about COBRA (such as a packet sent by a former employer), you'd know there's the aforementioned opt in period.

COBRA has a weird retroactive thing. You can opt in up to 60 days after leaving your last job and get retroactive coverage. So if you get hit by a car in your uninsured window, you retroactively enroll, pay the $1300/month back to when you left your job, and are fine.

It's dumb and confusing.

Oh wow, really? Would have saved myself a lot of stress if I'd known that.

US healthcare system isn't great but I'm sure this is a common theme of people not understanding how it actually functions at all.

They’re polygamists. Polygamy is a literal degenerate practice, a polygamist society will always fail as fewer men snatch up a larger share of women. The remaining men leave the society or fight causing it to fall apart.

Pretty sure they haven't been polygamists for a long time and the fringe that cling to that practice are ostracized.

Have you ever seen a comment section and they're all piling on Trump and someone comes in and says a positive about Trump and literally everyone screams "BOT!!!!" It's amazing.

Today in youtube if you click the logo to the upper left to go to the home page, it will "accidentally" take you to some 888 that Obama did today instead, comments are disabled but luckily they are too dumb to also disable the like/dislikes which doesn't look good for obummer's legacy.
It's a speech that nobody could possible like. He's praising Mandela, saying white males should be listened to, and making vague comments about trump being bad.

Give this fanfiction a read. It's so much stdh.txt that I can't even begin to explain it.

Houston Chronicle had to add a bunch of security to their parking garage because people were egging employee cars. Might as well call them the Houston DNC headquarters

I hadn't heard that. The Houston Comical really went south after the Houston Post ceased to exist in 1995. I can't really even stand the social media accounts of the local TV stations. I still follow Channel 13, but that's out of lifelong habit more than anything else. I usually find myself hiding 2 or 3 articles from them daily.

The only thing worthwhile in Houston news media are the meteorologists on the main channels since Houston actually has really good people in those positions.  Everyone else is completely worthless.

You can have the best meteorologists on planet earth but when Mayor Sylvester T. Nigger says don't evacuate, who do you think they're going to trust? Whitey with his fancy pants degree or one of their own?
