So if I follow your point, Minnesotans should retire to Florida and get their $8,462 per year Medicare payment but REALLY get their care in Minnesota and only pay $6,435 per year, thus pocketing the difference so they can have enough money saved to retire to Florida. 

I don't know - sounds kind circular to me.

you assert that cancer came about by random chance, but gave no argument... is this what you mean (correct me if i'm wrong)...

people move to florida to pay a lot for health care
people in minnesota get cancer too
therefore cancer came about by random chance

i don't think random chance explains anything... i think a lot of evidence shows that an intelligent infector started cancer... i can't prove it but that's the only choice i can see other than random chance...

I don't understand why goverments go harsh against smoking. It seems very cool to have people unstressed working for 40 years, and then die at their 60s.

There you go! Finally a market-based analysis.
"Gibberish in, gibberish out. A trial judge, three sets of lawyers, and now three appellate judges cannot agree on what this law means. And we ask police officers, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and citizens to enforce or abide by it? The legislature continues to write unreadable statutes. Gibberish should not be enforced as law."

I meant it as a non sequitur.

Btw, I still haven't heard a sound argument for the necessary condition of life in Florida.

if you describe the bridge distribution 5440 do you say 'five four four' or 'five four four zero' ? Assume you don't need to specify the void (it's obvious or not specified)
... and I can prove it with my usual, flawless logic.

In the interest of equity and fairness, whenever the opps bid 7NT, we should be allowed to bid at the 8 level.  :blink:

The purpose of a sacrifice is to go down less than the value of the opp's contract, is it not? :)

Avacados are way, way underrated.

Every plate of food should come with a side of avacado.

And bacon.

In related news, Americans eat too much and don't exercise enough. Avacados may exacerbate the situation.

Dude go to chile. Avocado on everything. A standard salad is like avocado and tomato. I got a hot dog while watching a movie, and the guy asked if I wanted avocado on it. I said no, ketchup, and he just looked at me...

I must be bad at life. Avocado sux. The preponderance of it on everything was like the 5th reason I moved out of Los Angeles. I'll stick to ketchup.
