On Going Above and Beyond Doesn't Help You

@garli Yeah, my last job gave a whole elaborate song and dance about how the expectations there were REALLY HIGH, so someone who is excellent is meeting those expectations. It's tough for liberal arts types who are used to most people getting A's.

On The Cost of Bringing a Person Into The World Via C-Section

@Oatmeal There always seem to be ridiculous negotiations between the provider and the insurance company. The provider bills insurance $X, the insurance says absolutely not, we'll only pay .25X, and the provider says.... OK. And the patient never hears about the other .75X again.

On The "Give Everyone a Goalie" Kind of Sex Ed

@cryptolect Is there something about how Buffy was always the kids' show, even though they (more or less) grew up, and Angel was always more adult?
