I think you'll find that I've always advocated for UHC in the US, so you don't need to rant at me like I'm some evil Trump goon trying to trick everyone into thinking that UHC is wicked communism. However the fact is that private insurance in the US provides a high (but costly) level of care. The problem is that it's tied to your job, so if you get too sick to work you're screwed.

The Korean system is fine if you have a very minor illness that only needs a minor prescription.

The US system is better (with private insurance) if you need surgery or have a chronic problem that needs medication.

If you have something really major like cancer then there's not really any perfect system. In Korea you might not get treated period. In the US you face high bills and possibly losing your insurance because you can't work. In UHC countries you're discouraged from getting tests until it's almost too late, and then it can be difficult to get the treatment you need, but at least it's free or very cheap.
If you can afford the medication. I recently went on Medicare and the medication I take for my adult-onset asthma went from a $10 co-pay to $197 ($150 was my medication deductible, which I didn't have before). I was told the generic was more expensive. I have since switched to a "preferred" pharmacy so we'll see how much it is the next time.

I told my pulmonologist about the price increase and he gave me a chart with the different inhalers I could use and said to ask the insurance company which one was the cheapest and go with it. So I've got to research it.

I have to agree with Martin on this.  The American version of Chinese food is about as legit as the Korean version of many Western foods--they have been modified to fit the local taste, sometimes to the extent they barely resemble the original.  Garlic bread with sugar, anyone?

It's true, but like the Koreans enjoy that God awful sweet garlic toast, I love a good Canadian Chinese restaurant.  They have tacky decors and names like Jade Garden or Jade Palace.  The menus are nothing like the legit Chinese places you'd walk by in China Town with the Peking ducks hanging in the windows.  Only Chinese you'd see were staff.  And I loved delivery nights when you'd get a load of boxes like Christmas presents.  "Chicken balls?  It's just what I wanted!" Never mastered the chopsticks back home, though. Panda Express is good for something different but it's fast food quality and lacks variety.  The chow mein is sh*t.

i mean considering the amount of junk food they eat down there (courtesy of the US, of course) a Doritos Crunchwrap Supreme might as well be

Panda Express is definitely trash, either way. Especially the orange chicken.

But I happen to like that trash. And I love the orange chicken.  :P

I have eaten at a lot of Greek places in Toronto, from food courts to 24 hour Greek diners to nice restaurants in Greek Town.  If I went to Greece I probably wouldn't recognize the dishes and consider it slop.  At least, when I threw my souvlaki dinner on the floor in disgust, they'd just clap and yell "Opa!" instead of getting offended.

After a long day at Bluffer's Beach, we went to get sushi outside the Carleton Cinema. And what did Casey say? Casey, of 24 years and Keswick blood?

 :-* Kevin, ask them for chopsticks.

 :police: Why?

 :-* Ask them for some.

  :police: What? Why?

 :-* Cuz................

 :police: HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAA. There is no way in hell I'm asking. You bloody well ask.
