Get this.. in Korea.. the hospitalized run free.
And they say that America is JUST NOW turning Socialist because of the new healthcare reform?!
Try leaving a hospital when you've been checked and roam the streets.. or go to the store with an IV wheeling beside you.. just TRY it!! And see what happens! You would have guards jumping you just to drag you back in and probably submit you to the psych ward!
I live next to 4 hospitals in Jinju.. I probably walk past more than that on the way to work. I would say every day I see at least 5 people roaming the streets in hospital outfits/gown things. Its absolutely crazy! And just yesterday I walked past this little tiny store and saw an IV sitting outside of it.. and the man was inside hooked up buying cigarettes or something! It was hilarious. I just love it, and it makes me giggle everytime!
