Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 10/30/2014

This was weird. Man walks out of a football game at halftime and disappears. Remember that lady some years back from the midwest that disappeared that showed up after meeting some guy in Las Vegas? What do you bet there's something really odd going on here too? 

Ew. Remember that vet that was harvesting dog's blood? 

Hah! The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou done as a The Shining type video.

San Antonio approves water project

The San Antonio City Council on Thursday unanimously voted in front of a packed chamber to approve a controversial pipeline that would bring in groundwater from 142 miles away. The $3.4 billion project would pipe in 16 billion gallons of water each year from Central Texas' Burleson County. 

Never heard of this before. Parkland Hospital charging exhorbitant liens for medical bills

A little-known perk of being a Texas hospital is that if a broke accident victim visits you for emergency treatment, you get to lay claim to any money the victim wins through the courts later. It's officially called a "hospital lien," legal through a state statute that's been on the books since the 1930s. The point is to give hospitals first dibs on the money their patients get from personal injury lawsuits. If a person whose life you saved for free just got a fat settlement check, shouldn't that check go straight to you?

But since October of last year, five people have filed suits against Parkland Hospital in Dallas County, accusing it of abusing its lien privilege.

All of five of the patients are car crash victims, and all but one say in their suits that they were uninsured when they went to Parkland for medical treatment. The complaints make the same argument that Parkland is overcharging its patients when there's a lien involved, asking for money that exceeds "a reasonable and regular rate," as a woman named Elise Stamey says in a suit she filed last December.
