Now that I'm 50, I get my first one.  Since Dad had colon cancer, my doc
wanted me to get one two years ago, but my insurance company said, "Yeah,
well, that's good and all, but if you want to do it now, you're paying for
it all yourself.  If you want us to pay for it, come back and talk to us
when you're 50.  Honestly, we don't really care if you have a family
history of it or not.  Our rules say 50, so 50 it is."

And I work for a hospital.  Go figure.
