I was going to say, I know this list is just for fun, but if ever there were a prime example of "white people problems," I think this may be it.


Yes, this puts me of a mind to start posting some serious reality-check pictures.

#4 -- It is an elemental law of physics that paper is always strongest at the perforation.

For all those trying to splash a little cold water on everyone's face by pointing out that there are far worse things in the world, bear in mind this is the internet and Buzzfeed is aimed toward the sensibilities of all those who haven't progressed past their earliest days of existence when a simple whine would get a boob popped in their mouths and the entire universe did revolve around them.

yeast infection.


Never had it. If you get them often, wear looser-fitting pants or skirts with COTTON (or no!) underwear. And don't use disposable maxi pads; they trap moisture up there and it causes those YIs. Use cloth pads if you must use pads and change frequently. Best bet? Long skirts with no underwear.

/For the love of FSM, NO pantyhose!!!
//If you must wear pantyhose, opt for thigh-highs instead of regular full panty hose.
///Take acidophilus if you're going onto an antibiotic.
////Don't douche.

By far one of the worst things is when you complain about something that bugs the crap out of you and some genius who thinks they're better than you tells you, meh, first-world problems.

What? I don't comprehend? Are you saying it's possible they were only kidding about these things being the worst in the world? Could you give an example of something worse?Because I just don't believe you.

I was going to say, I know this list is just for fun, but if ever there were a prime example of "white people problems," I think this may be it.


The phrase is "first-world problems", the portions of the the US black, hispanic, etc populations with for-reals problems are more or less statistically insignificant too.

It's sort of "reasons why the US is one of the world's greatest countries #1": we have so few real issues that one of our most pressing social issues is that people routinely get too many calories. People in any pre-1950s historical period and anywhere outside the US/western Europe would (in some cases literally) sacrifice their firstborn to have that problem. "Oh, no, I have access to way the hell more calories than I could ever need" is, in the larger perspective, a really good sign that we're doing something right.

//Even the other big one, health care, is still basically in the first-world problems category... because for the most part you still get the care you need, you just have issues with debt afterward. People in other places can end up in literal debt slavery and also never get the treatment in the first place. Holy shiat, in the larger context we're farking awesome.

criscodisco: I'm not one of those pussies who freaks out every time they see a picture of a bug, but I had a visceral reaction to #14, because it's always been horrifying when I see one of those in my house.


Which is odd, since iirc those actually don't eat anything but other bugs, so I leave them alone for the most part. I actually am a fan of indoor hunting spiders, Texas scorpions, mosquito eaters, daddy longlegs, etc-- they eat the bugs that _do_ piss me off, they don't try to set up a permanent home/web/etc, and they try to avoid physically bumping into me like god intended. Hell, a scorpion will even take on those goddamned South American cockroaches that invade central Texas every summer, I'd offer the awesome little scrappers a fist-bump before I'd step on one. (Cockroaches eat human food, which is basically #1 on the "fark it, it dies" list.)

Though, to be fair, I grew up in ag country, and while I wasn't in a ranching family myself the people I'd do the equivalent of lawn-mowing jobs for all were. So my relationship with animals is very much decoupled from how cute they may or may not be and rooted much more in whether they're useful or not.

//For more on the severe cultural break between "raised in a rural area" and "raised in an urban area" see me and a couple other FARKers in almost any dog thread. Yeah, us hicks love us some dogs, but we love them in the sense that we love our trucks or some other piece of equipment that we've put a lot of effort into getting to run right. I believe I've used the word "sociopath" on more than one occasion to refer to the weird urban "dogs are morally equivalent to little humans" types.
