Insurance companies. Who else do you pay every year and get NOTHING back?
I have paid into car insurance, for instance, for years....and have nothing to show for it. IF I used that money for something else, I would have something to show for it...maybe a a new car, or maybe a downpayment of a house.
"Oh, but we do get back something... what if we are injured in a wreck? and our car, is damaged?."
Hospital bills are paid, yes, most of them...and the car, maybe replaced....
But then your premiums go UP, to recover the cost or part of it....and others with insurance, their premiums also go up....the insurance company loses NOTHING.
It is worse then a multi level scheme. Money goes in, nothing comes out.
What IF they do replace your car? What have you gained? The same car. As if it was never wrecked. So you are still where you were, status wise. and still paying premiums, only higher now.
Sorry for blowing steam, you asked.
Shinigami....Just WHY do they withhold the child's name, when they commit a crime? To protect him? But HE did commit the crime, why protect him? IF the parents are embarassed by what their innocent child did, maybe they would watch him a little closer next time. I think ALL names of all people, regardless of age, should be put into the media.
After all, if they are old enough to do the crime, they should be old enough to take responsibility for it.
But society wants to protect the " innocent " little.....guys....even if they had mugged an elderly lady and left her disabled.
