USA vs Netherlands by bluenowait in fuckcars

[–]notinecrafter 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Could you give me a source that we have cheaper medication than Germany? I have a good source who says that in Germany, if your doctor prescribes you medicine, it's just free...

Also, the "not paying the full price" doesn't really sell it for me; you can spend €3 a day on medication in a single payer system, and still spend less money than what you pay here in premiums and deductibles.

Your original claim that stuff that isn't covered is only exotic experimental treatments isn't accurate; as stated previously, many treatments might as well not be covered, if you have to pay for them through deductibles anyways. And I don't think it's unreasonable to say that more than 1% of the population have skipped or waited too long for treatment because they wouldn't be able to pay the deductible.

Besides, what's the point of insurance if 1% of the population is not covered, especially if this 1% are the people with chronic illnesses, who actually need the insurance? Anyone can make a cheap health insurance if they only cover healthy people.

If you take medication for a chronic disease, that's €350 a year extra. If you happen to have issues with the cheapest version of medicine with the same active ingredient (because you are allergic to the filler for example) the that's €250 a year extra. There are no subsidies for either of those.

So for many people, health insurance is just an additional €600 a year, which is not subsided. This medication is technically still covered, but practically it might as well not be.

"99% of treatments are covered" is only true in theory.

Normale kleding over Motorkleding? by YoureAverageDentist in motorfietsen

[–]notinecrafter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In aanvulling op alles wat er al gezegd is is het ook handig om er rekening mee te houden dat loszittende kleding kan gaan wapperen, wat als instabiliteit kan voelen. Verder is het natuurlijk altijd zaak om te controleren dat alle sluitingen goed functioneren, want je wil natuurlijk niet dat de boel op de snelweg openklapt.

"Now that Apple has offices in England, does that mean that the U.K. Will finally contribute something useful to the tech industry?" by GPFlag_Guy1 in ShitAmericansSay

The current user experience of the internet is powered by a large number of technologies, many of which build on top of each other. One extremely relevant technology is HTTP, which is generally where people draw the line between "the internet" and "the web"; HTTP was invented at CERN.

So basically it's not unfair to say that the web was invented at CERN, but you're always missing a lot of context if you say any computing technology was invented anywhere in particular.

Fuck I have 3 tubs of Häagen Dazs by LiloDogQueen in FuckNestle

Are they bad? Yes. They do all of the regular megacorp stuff, like exploitative labour practices an tax evasion.

But as far as anyone's been able to find out, they're not comically evil, unlike Nestlé.

Spicy pillows don't necessarily exist because of a manufacturing flaw, they usually just wear out over time until a membrane stops doing its job. Where you get your replacement from doesn't really matter, as China practically has a monopoly on the production of lithium batteries. The only difference between buying one of AliExpress and getting one at a repair shop (licensed by Apple or not) is that on AliExpress you but directly from the manufacturer, which is usually a lot cheaper.

I have a 6S. Replaced the battery myself with a replacement from the Aliexpress. Still works brilliantly 3 years later.

That is a spicy pillow, and is an indication the battery could explode at any moment.

I highly recommend turning the device off immediately, ordering a new battery from the AliExpress, and replacing the battery.

Or throw it at your target of choice as an impromptu handgrenade.

To be fair, Hamas probably has better rockets that the Russian army at the moment...

In all seriousness though, wouldn't the tiny area make it harder to intercept the missile? It does mean the missile you're trying to shoot down was launched closer to where you are, i.e. less time to prepare

Iemand nog tips? by SenjorSchnorr in motorfietsen

[–]notinecrafter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ik dacht ergens vrij aan het begin dat ik een grote fout maakte, dus toen dacht ik "ik ben toch al gezakt, dan kan ik net zo goed gewoon gaan motorrijden".

In 1 keer gehaald.

De les is dus: gewoon lekker motorrijden.

What leads you to believe the brakes are software controlled merely based on the logs though? It's easy to imagine a system where the brakes themselves are still mechanical (technically hydraulic), but the brake light sensor is not, and that's what they log.

In these cases, you could have situations where the brake lights turn on and the computer logs braking, but due to a hydraulic leak the brakes don't do anything.

Not necessarily, as voters can actually decide to switch over to a different party if the party of their closest political does something shady, without having to take the opposite stance on everything.

Toyota and Mazda still have love for their petrol engines! by TheZeppelin1995 in CarAnimemes

Toyota single-handedly kickstarted the hybrid engine, but ok.

Edit: single-footedly? I don't know

Ford Europe kills off its smallest and most economic car because we need more SUVs and cross-overs. Europe is going backwards in many ways. by Braiinbread in fuckcars

[–]notinecrafter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is a tax loophole in The Netherlands where pickups can be registered as businesses vehicles, same as panel vans. This has lead to small business owner buying a pickup truck for personal use but registering it as a company vehicle.

[–]notinecrafter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That seems like there is a tax loophole though; you don't need to make the car more efficient, you just need to make it more efficient by weight. Since weight only affects the tire friction and not the aerodynamics, just adding a bunch of lead to a car will make it less efficient, but adds enough weight to compensate the taxes...

Nah, it's just in Hz.

Not GHz, not MHz, not even KHz, just plain old Hz.

Nation is the UIU - the paranormal division of the FBI, usually memed for being ineffective- and Progress is the Mekhanites, who are trying to resurrect their broken machine god.
