Extraneus

The gay male obsession with physical beauty is, I would say, much greater than that of heterosexuals.

Some years ago, I was New Orleans for Halloween, and as familiar I was with gays from growing up in NYC, I witnessed an event so strange, so foreign, that I still don't know what to make of it. Dozens, maybe hundreds of men - absolutely perfect physical specimens - walking about on Bourbon Street, shirtless in shorts. All white, polite, muscled and hairless except for neat and perfectly coiffed head hairstyles. Some sort of gay convention, apparently. No idea what it was about.

We Christians used to call them base instincts, and one could argue aesthetics all day long.

And somehow, with very little empirical or direct evidence the ancient world was rampant with butt pirates. Of course academia's views have been evolving for some time.

As Eric Hofer used to say, "Go shit in your hat".

Boehner was never better than when he successfully sued that louse for leaking the illegal recording of Noot's conversation.

Gaydar deficient.

It isn't so weird that they couldn't afford to be on her husband's insurance.

My former job paid the majority of my premium but paid nothing towards family member premiums. The plan the school district used would have required me to pay out of pocket about $900 a month for my husband and $1600 a month for 2 or more dependents. At the time I made $500 a month before taxes.

Lucky for me my husband's employer had more affordable insurance.

"This seems odd. Adding family members to an existing employer plan is more expensive than separately insuring them?"

In some cases, yes. I turned down a job ten years ago at the University of Wyoming because the insurance premiums to cover my family were going to be in the neighborhood of 900 dollars a month--on the state plan. I, on the other hand, would have been covered at 100%. Separate insurance would have been cheaper but much more of a hassle.

I'm going to break with tradition and actually comment on the original post, rather than comment #23,368.

I've worked for a number of companies who paid 100% of the employee's cost, so I suspect that Holly's husband got his insurance automatically, then they decided that they couldn't afford to insure the family.

That said, OBcare is still a cluster****.

I'm all in favor of Megan's plan: you're on your own (out of pocket, sign up for a "real" HMO like Kaiser, whatever) for your medical bills, but the gov't re-imburses you/covers everything above 15% of your income. http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2010/02/the-limited-benefits-of-first-dollar-health-care-coverage/36016/
