eyes black and white

Free as in Beer

In the country where I come from, health care is free.

Is it?

Yes: doctors and nurses work for nothing. Their job is so deeply satisfying to them that they don't need either food or sleep, not even a bath. They are born ready-to-work with medical omniscience and so don't need years of expensive parenting and training. Moreover, hospitals and medical equipment grow naturally in otherwise infertile land.

Oh my! Nuclear-powered robots have taken over your country and control all resources!

Did I tell you about the free education?
