The Wit & Wisdom of Robert Heinlein

— Matt Harris @ 7:56 pm

I found this via Daily Pundit: a Wikiquote’s listing of some of Robert Heinlein’s greatest quotes.

Considering the fact that I consider Robert Heinlein the greatest Science Fiction author of all time and certainly the number one formative element of my political philosophy, I recommend it is highly.

What A $6,000 Dental Bill Looks Like

— Matt Harris @ 8:16 pm

I was laid off from my job after 9/11 and lost my dental insurance. After several temp jobs, I finally got hired to a permanent position in April. My new job provides dental insurance, so yesterday I made my first visit to a dentist in about five years.

The net result is that I need about $6,000 in dental work done. My insurance maxes out at a $1,000 per year and my dentist cut another $1,500 or so off of the price, so I get to shell out $3,500. Fortunately I can pay it off over 18 months, so it shouldn’t be too bad. Still, ouch!

I am fortunate, though. After the diagnosis and the administering of smelling salts, the dentist was able to get right to work. My guess is that if we had a single-payer health system, there would be a long waiting list for all of the work I am getting done.

Anyway, here is a “nice” photo of what all the fuss is about: (more…)

Gozzy’s Random Dungeon Map Generator

— Matt Harris @ 8:06 pm

Via Enworld is a link to a nice random dungeon map generator. While there are several other such generators on the web, this one produces some cirucular rooms – a nice feature.
