neil-gaiman: mizzkatonic: What exactly is Obamacare and what does it change? abaldwin360: big thanks to reddit user CaspianX2 for typing all this out! What people call “Obamacare” is actually the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. However, people were calling it “Obamacare” before everyone even hammered out what it would be.

susiebird replied to your link: OMG you guys— Little Rooster i’m stuck on the fact that they’ve chosen to coin the term “snorgasm”. i—wait, what? RIGHT? Like, someone said that in a meeting and everyone else was like “that is a great word, we shall use this word frequently.” Is it because they’re from the UK?
