I really was shocked to read this one. Why does it cost $55,000 to take out an appendix? I mean, really? My appendix was taken out when I was 12 and I don't think my folks had to fork out that much for it. What amazes me is this statement.
In April, University of California San Francisco researchers set out to find out how much an appendectomy cost among 19,000 patients in California. An appendectomy varied in price from $1,529 to $182,955, the researchers wrote in the study published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine.
I mean, for real??? Am I the only one who thinks this is a ridiculous amount? Even with insurance coverage, the out of pocket cost is still rather high!
This guy has lost his God-given mind! I sympathize with him on the loss of his son but there is absolutely NO WAY he can justify slapping a toddler! I was so disgusted reading this story and also the comments by people saying it was an unfair sentence. Really? He was on probation for a prior incident! I don't think the sentence was unfair.
On a different note, have you ever felt like you have a doppelganger out there? Like you walk by someone and they ask you "I know you from somewhere" and you are ABSOLUTELY SURE you are not the person they know because you've never been to any of the places the person has been to? Well, Check out these celebrity look-alikes. I thought for sure this woman was Oprah until I looked closely.
