AustraliaHealth© meets Mustang Ranch

Australia's national health care system (which is called, interestingly enough, Medicare) seems to have a problem. Although "(p)rimary health care remains the responsibility of the federal government," said government isn't actually keen on providing it.

Which leads to, um, interesting personal solutions:

"The day after Rachel Rohrlach and her soon-to-be-husband, farmer Chris Rohrlach, announced they were expecting their first child, Rachel suffered a debilitating stroke that left her a quadriplegic ... so Chris and two friends came up with the controversial solution to build and manage a brothel."

So how much does it cost to treat an Australian quadriplegic?

$25 (AU), same as in town.
