utsagrad123: I didn't have time to watch the whole video... My lunch was getting cold.
cman: As long as scarcity exists then poverty will, too.Its too bad we dont have those Trek replicators.
Rapmaster2000: That could have done better with that premise. The "first-world problems" were too trite. I think it was their intention to make them very trite, but it just makes the comparison not as relevant to your viewer because your first world viewer will just say "well, I'm not like one of those people that complains about forgetting to take a phone to a bathroom" and now they sort of let themselves off the hook from donating to you. I would make the problems real things that people biatch about, but are glorious problems to have in the third world.Something like "I can't decide where to go out to eat tonight" would be right on point.
AcesFull: at least they don't gotta put with crushed ice...
Pichu0102: Wasn't there something where if your primary needs are filled, things that are less important become more important to you or something?
TheMega: I have to agree with the pickle one... I like pickles on my burger, so everyone who doesn't like pickles and still gets them on their burger can just suffer!!! SUFFER I say!/pickle
sweet-daddy-2: I just hate it when third world problems are used to make me feel guilty.
Jim_Callahan: The fact that other people have worse problems than you does not in any way negate the existence of your problems. Nor does it magically grant me the excess resources to fix the other people's problems.Basically, if I've got no shoes, the fact that the other guy has no feet neither protects me from injury and infection nor does it grant me the power to psychically levitate him to where he wants to go by the sheer power of useless saccharine cliche.

RedPhoenix122: cman: As long as scarcity exists then poverty will, too.Its too bad we dont have those Trek replicators.Well, as long as people are making money off scarcity, at least.

mekki: I never understood these "first world problem" bits. Why should I be made to feel guilty that I was lucky enough to be born in a country that has a sound infrastructure that allows me to have "first world problems" in the first place? All those third world countries have either incredibly corrupt governments or dictatorships, something that I can not solve by throwing money at it no matter how large of a check I may write.
Spanky McStupid: I hate when I'm in a foreign country and they I don't speak English.
Smeggy Smurf: I couldn't hear the video over how awesome being an American sounds
shanrick: mah spoon is too big.
tonguedepressor: [practicallyhistorical.files.wordpress.com image 259x194]"See this..? this is sand..you know what its going to be a hundred years from now?"Still funny & relevant IMHO
