England rocks! I lived in London about 8 years ago and the Health Care is good. You can also go private health insurance if you want to pay for it. So you do have options unlike here were you have... well... none.

Haha! Rats on ecstasy listening to loud music having sex.... Right. I'm wondering why the researchers did not just do the experiments on themselves? peace!

I guess our Health Care System (NHS)has certain benefits. Rodents raving and taking recreational drugs in the name of WEIRD science! Can't say I envy the scientist watching the vermin porn. But a 4-day work week sounds FANTASTIC. HAppy Holidays.
