Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

From the Office: "No, Really" Edition

The Scene: Drek, the Former Hypothetical Roommate (FHR), Drek's Sainted Girlfriend (D'sSGF), and Drek's Other Officemate (DOO), are all in Drek's office. Drek has just checked his e-mail, noticing one piece from a particularly close friend of his.

Drek: Well, that's interesting.

FHR: What?

Drek: Seems a hospital in Jerusalem has found a rather novel solution to getting mothers to pay for giving birth.

DOO: Lemme guess: they keep the babies!

Drek: Yep.

D'sSGF and DOO laugh.

Drek: I'm not kidding, it's what they're actually doing.

D'sSGF: No way! They're actually keeping the babies until you pay?!

Drek: Yeah. Well, until you pay a deposit, anyway. If you have twins or triplets, though, they only keep the one. The rest you can take.

D'sSGF: Oh my god- that's terrible!

DOO: I bet you have to pay for care while they're being held, too.

Drek: Probably.

FHR: It'd have to be. Otherwise, it's just the cheapest daycare ever. I'd be like, "Wait, you want to take care of my kid for me? Shit, go for it."

Drek: Admittedly, I think you might be a special case.

FHR: True.

DOO: I wonder how they handle blood transfusions?

Drek: You probably don't want to know.
