Here is a picture of some of the dumb shit you have to deal with if you are uninsured and want to get birth control or a pap smear.

…I have administrative bones to pick with God, Boo. I’ll say God seems to have a kind of laid-back management style I’m not crazy about. I’m pretty much anti-death. God looks by all accounts to be pro-death. I’m not seeing how we can get together on this issue, he and I, Boo. — David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
TODAY’S FEATURED PICTURE
The Low Memorial Library rotunda of Columbia University, an Ivy League university in New York City, c. 1900–10. The building no longer serves as a library, having been converted to administrative purposes when it was supplanted by the larger Butler Library in 1934. However, the building’s facade is still etched with the words “The Library of Columbia University,” leading many to mistakenly believe that it retains its earlier role. The building was designed in the neoclassical style by the architectural firm of McKim, Mead, and White, which was responsible for the design of much of the campus. It is registered as a National Historic Landmark.
