5. People who procrastinated signing up for Obamacare until the very last day. If you waited until today to sign up for Obamacare, you may be encountering some technical difficulties. But isn't that the Healthcare.gov experience you were hoping for? It would be such a yawnfest if you found registering for your state's health coverage plan to be straightforward and simple. That wouldn't make a very good story at all! Signing up for Obamacare should be annoying enough to complain about to your friends and coworkers but ultimately effective, like all good government programs. And if you're a fan of the Affordable Care Act, you'll be happy to know those glitches were caused by a huge surge in people signing up just before the deadline. About 9.5 million previously uninsured people now have insurance, plus we all got to see Obama on Between Two Ferns. Win-win. —SRD
