I remember back when I was a kid/teenager. well must have been about 10 years ago now. (s**t that makes me feel old
) and going to A+E after a mountain bike accident. spent half an hour cleaning gravel out of my knee with a toothbrush, then sent me to another hospital because my wrist was in pain and their x ray department was closed. so after another half hour trip I had to wait 5 hours to be seen whilst sitting in absolute agony. think I had my dressings changed 3 times in 8 hours my knee wouldnt stop bleeding.
luckily it was only a fracture so 6 weeks in a cast sorted my wrist. suffering big time with my knee though, never was right after the accident (although they did bend a funny way whilst sliding 100 yards down a hill on gravel) ironic thing was it was nearly exactly a year after Id done the exact same thing
but anyway back to TVs. Ive got a 19" flatscreen in my room for the xbox (yes Im getting GTA but Im not paying £40 for it, I'll wait until its cheaper, wouldnt catch me waiting outside a game shop at midnight-bloody idiots they are, especially the ones on the radio/news saying they'd taken time off work to play it
) and a 28/32" old big backed one in the lving room which was free. Id rather spend that sort of money on a new car. my little polo cost me £200 so imagine what I could find with that sort of money. Im thinking 1980s toyota celica
or nissan silvia s12/s13.
Shit my brother had a Toyaota Celica Supra in those days. he let me have a go i hadn't driven yet and rolled it slowely into a hedge
I don't think he's ever had such a snazzy car since, i've never had one.
As to he NHS, they make mistakes and so does the private sector, we have all had some bad experiences as well as some awesome/spectacular experiences, I can tell horror stories about both hospital/GP and Dentistry, but it's not about slagging them off when it goes wrong but finding solutions when it does, I'd prefer a bit of a mixed math NHS than no NHS at all.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
