Healthcare for $1…

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jun/21/verone-one-dollar-robbery-healthcare

This brings home what universal healthcare actually means. To think that someone had to rob a bank just to be seen by a doctor is fairly sickening. Only in America!

Age of Heroes..

I watched Age of Heroes this evening, and whilst I did enjoy it, I found my attention wandering. The end of the film just happened without me even realising that we had reached the climax and the characters seemed to lack in depth those of other recent Second World War films like Inglorious Basterds. Actually hang on here, I sound like I am actually critiquing the film, I promise I am not!

My main reason for blogging about the film was that I couldn’t believe how well Sean Bean can do a Joker’s smile. If they don’t find a replacement for Heath Ledger, they should consider Sean!

Anyway, as I started to critique the film, maybe I should stick my historical nose in too. I was under the impression that this story was actually Operation Biting and took place in sunny France not snowy Norway.

And finally as the film is notionally about Flemming, I did enjoy the accent of the sergeant.  Shame I didn’t notice any other Bond references….did you?


What would you wear to get noticed?

Can anyone explain why women (and the guy in photo 11) go to such extreme lengths to get noticed.

This one is definitely one of the weirder ones.
