I'm not watching them as I used to, so thx for reminding me  :) Except for Universe documentaries..

Recently I watched 'Touching the Void' and 'Deep Water'. Pretty good stuff.

Yeah. The only country in the world in which healthcare is a commodity sold in the *health insurance industry.* Pharmaceutical companies were the third-most profitable industry in 2008, with a 19.3 percent profit margin. Health insurers ranked 35th. Lots of money to be made off those who can pay. Then there's 10s of millions without health insurance. It's worse than you could possibly imagine.
