56. Yes... a 42-yr-old married man with 2 children has NEVER dealt with an insurance company

You have me pegged.

My family and I are immortals. Never been sick. Never been to a hospital. In fact, my wife gave birth to our two kids in our kitchen. We just mopped up the mess and went back to watching American Idol.
