Got A Chuckle From This

From Facebook:

i feel so brain dead.. i haven't done any academic work all summer, other than computing change, but still. i'm so tempted to just pick up a pencil and do some calculus. lol, weird i know.

(This poor girl is earning a living by walking around with a 25 kg (55 lb) sausage grill attached to her body.  I don't eat meat, but I insisted my husband buy one from her.  At $2.25. she needed to sell quite a few to make a living, especially with the price of things in Germany.)

This poor girl is covered by Germany's universal health care system, one of the best in the world. In spite of this, Germany spends half of the amount per person that is spent in the United States per person for health care. The system was nationalized by the "Iron Chancellor" Otto von Bismarck. This poor girl has access to some of the world's best dental care as well, and nursing homes and MRI's when necessary. She may indeed be hard working at her sausage job, but is respected by the health care system and doesn't have to jump through hoops to get decent medical care. Her body is not for sale the way ours are here in the US, where there is a price on our heads, literally.
