man loses top of head in brain op

August 30, 2007

okay, i’m not normally one to quote reuters. most googlites have already seen the article before i’m even out of bed in the morning.

but just let this have happened in america


[i’m just sayin – bloke could’ve retired on the *mental anguish* restitution alone if that had happened over here].

    Obviously there are excesses in our system, but I tend to think that getting a few hundred thousands bucks for losing the top of your head is more equitable than $4,000 and a “Who needs a skull when plastic is just as good?”

    yeah, that was my favorite part of the article.

    i was thinking – *plastic parts are better than real parts?* . . . care for an upgrade?

    Wow! You know, with my Accidental Death & Dismemberment plan, I get 75 bucks just for losing a finger! If a hospital had lost the TOP OF MY SKULL, $5,000 wouldn’t cut it for me, either.

    yeah. i had that plan.

    they’re serious about that *accidental* part, too.

    they won’t pay one red cent for intentional dismemberment.
