The Romans where farmers or descendants of farmers. Naturally their year started with nature. If we ever become spacefarers the “local” year of newly found planets will probably start with their perihelion.
His heart may be in the right place, but it wasn’t in the right mood.
schould’ve had his bling as golden knuckle-dusters and spurs and used his superior agility to discurage the wolves appetite.
Meanwhile?!? How can someone not miss a dog for days, especially one of that character and need for attention?
17 months ago the same happened to me because of an accident with my bike: 12 days of hospital, also 2 major surgeries, recuperation with decreasing intensity during 12 month. Summed up to a total of about 6.500 €. It was all covered by my statutory health insurance (which got reimbursed by the statuory car insurance of the guilty party without any involvement of mine nor of the car driver).
I was on leave for about 5 months, but got paid fully. I was not fired during that time: working laws prohibit that. The employer gets reimbursed by the insurance for anything exceeding 6 weeks of sick absence within a year.
To put it in perspective: that kind of health insurance costs me ~14% of my income if exceeding a level of about 15 k€/a, less to none if below. The employer has to pay annother, lower rate. But he has to pay for everyone with a working contract. (These numbers are not exact, just to provide the general Iidea.)
I hope Frank Bucket has insurance and that the insurance covers the expenses. I’ve seen a US-American 7-day hospital bill recently and was beyond belief what they charge you: It was at least 30-fold the amount someone has to pay in Germany if he’d be uninsured (which almost nobody is).
And I also saw a video by an American tourist who had an accident here in Germany: He was shocked in disbelief on the 450$-bill for a 4 day stay in a German Hospital, including X-ray, cast, crutches and medication. He thought there was a zero missing.
So how about dying comically?
Compared to not swimming at all or drowning it’s quite a significant accomplishment.
Because the “offended” are mislabled here as they are the Annoyed®.
I can’t know when the arc is finnished. Some arcs are worth reading and praising, some are worth critizising. I do both whatever is appropriate, in the hope that the comments here reach the authors of the strip and help them to develop on some issues. I know that it does with quite some of the other strips I read.
And if the content stays being offensive or boring – yes I quit reading them, no need for dramaqueening.
I’m getting tired of this story arc due to its main characters blatant ignorance about what inclusion means. It’s difficult enough to endure all those patronizing people in real life, it’s hard to endure that in a comic, too.
