Re: so what if
Sorry for the dog. I was actually going to write "get a Jeeves" but it's probably true that fairly few can afford one. And my smiley icon was not proper either.
I have had dogs since I was born, three cats today, (or rather my wife's). My problem is, however, that I am allergic against dogs and cats. But they just love me (in any country). One "expert" told me they like me because as I try to stay in the background, sort of, I also refrain from behaving like a twat in front of them with idiotic sounds and gestures. That then informs them that I am a normal and non-aggressive nice person worth making friends with.
But about that pill, I find it a bit silly to compare it with a pacemaker, unless of course it was possible to blow you and the pill up over the internet.
Somebody mentioned metals, unhealthy for us, but I would assume/hope that stuff will travel to the bitter end.
There is in fact a video camera so small you can swallow it and then your doctor can on a monitor record the journey to the end, to be or not to be, used again.
But there is that worrying aspect of the insurance companies, then again, it's more or less an American problem. Eventually I hope more and more Americans will understand that they are screwed by the Insurance Companies and Big Pharma more than anybody else in the world.
As hard to change, I suppose, as the, de facto, two party system. I also believe some Brits would agree with me that their two party system was one big reason to the idiotic referendum.
Metals and insurance makes me remember that eating gold was at one time in China thought to be the way towards a golden old age, not a longtime success, however. And at some time they "invented" health care insurance, you paid your doctor as long as you felt fine and dandy, if not, you stopped paying and he would turn up again doing his best for you.
