Considering that JW's got about a thousand years' worth of technology  
we don't have, I'd be surprised if they didn't have much better  
health-care.  I can think of a whole bunch of things (effortless  
weight control, forex) that would make me a very wealthy man if I had  
them here-and-now and could sell them to people.
