Hello! What does 'pppy' stand for? Thanks!One thing that baffles me about America is the sheer amount of money the government spends on healthcare. It's not even socialised healthcare, and yet over $4k per person per year is spent on healthcare just by the government. This increases to nearly $7k pppy when the private expenditure is added to this. In Europe, using a socialised system, they provide everyone with decent healthcare for around $3k pppy, and Western European countries such as France tend to dominate any comparitive studies into the quality of healthcare in each country.
And 'per' - for anyone who doesn't know - means 'for/in each'. Hence 'percent' - in each hundred.
SMS trivium: the Italian SMS abbreviation for 'because' is "/k" - perché. There's no k in native Italian words, but the 'k' is still there on the keypad, so why not use it?
