I said "that's it, I'd rather die than do this for another day," and I switched to self-employment afterward.

It hasn't been a cakewalk but I'm happy knowing I will never step foot in a cubicle ever again, working for completely corrupted fuckheads who value money over human life.

Welcome to the free world. Congratulations.

Yeah, I am kind of the opposite of that, I guess.  Was a performing drummer, and studio owner for decades before accidentally getting into what I do now.  It's definitely a gilded cage.

Knowing your in a cage no matter how gilded puts you far ahead of most of the working population that support a system they are incapable of seeing beyond.

We all have to make choices but its nice doing it with your eyes open as opposed to wearing blinders, whether by ignorance or choice.

BCBS... ah you poor bastard  Cheesy  Maybe its KP, either way... I hated everything about that industry. Fully rotten to the core. After getting fired for not backing down on a case against a fraudulent ophthalmologist who was billing the insurance plan for botox done on her crooked doctor pals, it took me one final job working for a vastly overpricing specialty drug insurance company before I said "that's it, I'd rather die than do this for another day," and I switched to self-employment afterward.

It hasn't been a cakewalk but I'm happy knowing I will never step foot in a cubicle ever again, working for completely corrupted fuckheads who value money over human life.

Congrats, its alot tougher than people think to walk this line and hold your head up high. Many times it precluded life goals such as breeding.

Life is nothing but choices and we are all defined by our weakest ones.



I've never been fired from a job but I have quit many and once I was not hired after the probationary period because I refused to participate in the fraud they perpetrated on the customers during a audit. It of course was a utility company that is a monopoly and I should have done more than just refused to be a part of it but I was like 20 and every other person was a willing participant and I was derided for not being a part but I know that I am not a scumbag thief partaking in legal theft. I was quit surprised to find out every single other person was just fine with cooking the books to steal, I guess I was raised as an aboration to believe being honest was the norm.

I still draw a salary, but, if and when btc gets to 100K+/-25K, I think I am done.
Lately, especially with covid, a lot of nonsense is coming down the pike.
So very tired of seeing nincompoops making the "new" rules at my place of work.

Ok, however insurance companies have a vested interest to pay out as little as possible, so if a hospital was doing this they would be nailed to a cross in short order. I doubt the value increased would offset the risks taken so probably not.

Not true. They just pass on the costs to their customers in the form of increased premiums. I worked in the anti-fraud division of a major health insurer for a number of years. It was depressing to see exactly how much hospitals can get away with and how little the insurance companies are willing to do about it. There's a lot of dynamics at play here, like hospital physicians sitting on the medical boards of the insurance companies. The insurance companies have no interest to pay out as little as possible, I promise you.


Right. It seems to me the insurance companies would want to pay out as much as possible. The more they pay out, the more they charge. The more they charge, the more profit they profit.

Turns out, insurers don't have to decrease spending to make money. They just have to accurately predict how much the people they insure will cost. That way they can set premiums to cover those costs — adding about 20 percent for their administration and profit. If they're right, they make money. If they're wrong, they lose money. But, they aren't too worried if they guess wrong. They can usually cover losses by raising rates the following year.

Sadly I had a Dentist charge my insurance for work that he fucked up and had to redo and I of course told him to fuck off when he had the nerve to try to charge me the co pay and when they kept busting my balls about it I said fuck you pricks and called the insurer to report them for fraud and the insurer would not even take the assholes information and literally told me they don't care. I smashed the guys windshield one day. Smiley

Rotflmao


So anyway here's a little more info on why I did that. He was hungover working on my front tooth laminate and he slipped and ground my other front tooth right across the face and I ended up having to get that whole tooth ground down and laminated to match but to make matters worse the asshole made the tooth 2 shades too yellow and it looked brutal for a few months while I waited for another appointment to get it redone. And Then after getting it redone he had the nerve to charge ME and the insurance again. I was gonna kick that fuckers ass but I could never catch him in the parking lot so I got sick of driving out of my way and just did the windshield.

You need a new dentist mate. I had a zirconia crown fracture after only two years and my guy replaced it for free. If he was really hungover he might have a substance abuse problem and reporting him to the state dental regulatory authorities would be more productive than smashing a windshield (maybe not as satisfying but if you were caught on a surveillance camera you could have been arrested ... cameras are everywhere nowadays.)

So Corona deaths are not real?

I think you're chewing on the wrong end of my stick old boy, because their deaths are very real in my opinion.


That said, in this time where social media or biased media are now the main sources of 'accepted truth', real truth is a rare commodity; claimed by many, actually spoken by few.

With the rising tide of illiberalism, spoken by ever fewer.

That was back in the 90's no camera worries and I never went back to him. He had told me he was hungover from sailing the day before while he was doing the tooth. He was a nice guy and did competent work until he tried to screw me. Funny, I just remembered his name and checked and he had a 5 star rating so I hosed that with a 1 star review.

How so? 10 year support is around 75 (EDIT: corrected from 73-74) and we are at 95 in DXY.

Oops I meant the trend line running since 2011. There is support all over the place but if it falls below the trend line, I think its heading toward a long term bear market. The last bear market for US dollar lasted 7 years between 2001-2008.
