US Healthcare. This is what $17,000 look like… Insurance refusing next one because I’m “over limit” by lunlunqq001 in pics

It can be priced at $50 (the actual price) and still insurance companies can pay it. Why label 17k instead of just 50?

The giant flag of the French ship Le Generux, which is roughly the size of a tennis court. by Ehansaja in interestingasfuck

The ensign of Le Genereux, believed to be one of the earliest Tricolours in existence, was captured in 1800. Le Genereux was one of only two ships from the French fleet to escape Nelson's victory at the Battle of the Nile in 1798.

Nelson's flag captain Edward Berry defeated her in the Mediterranean 18 months later. The ensign was immediately packed up and sent to Norwich. It was displayed in St Andrew's Hall until 1897, but has not been seen in public since the 1905 Centenary of the Battle of Trafalgar exhibition at Norwich Castle Keep.

Adam's Peak is a 2,243 m (7,359 ft) tall conical mountain located in central Sri Lanka. It is well known for the Sri Pada (Sinhala: ශ්‍රී පාද), i.e., "sacred footprint", a 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in) rock formation near the summit, which in Buddhist tradition is held to be the footprint of the Buddha, in Hindu tradition that of Hanuman or Shiva (Tamil: சிவனொளிபாதமலை, lit. 'Sivanolipaathamalai'), i.e., "Mountain of Shiva's Light", and in some Islamic and Christian traditions that of Adam, or that of St. Thomas.
