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.
Rumours that a White Man had been seen bad-mouthing Sally Struthers spread quickly

Precision Boobery: You know what's worse? Second-world problems. Nobody gives one single shiat about them.
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.
sweet-daddy-2: I just hate it when third world problems are used to make me feel guilty.
AcesFull: at least they don't gotta put with crushed ice...
utsagrad123: I didn't have time to watch the whole video... My lunch was getting cold.
Ishkur: untaken_name: Because I'm a selfish being, and unlike everyone else I'm honest about it.Wrong. People are not inherently selfish.What you really are is a dick. You read Ayn Rand and decided that the only true way to live is to be a dick. That's fine, but the vast majority of people don't want to be dicks.That doesn't make you honest. It just makes you a dick./dick
IamAwake: untaken_name: The fact that in 200 or 10,000 or 1 million years none of it will matter in the slightest....priceless. Ozymandias or peasant, what difference does it make once you're dead? None.If pleasure and suffering are pointless merely because the ones suffering or experiencing pain will be dead 200 years from now, then why not just off yourself now?That is seriously the most idiotic argument evah. Actively participating in subjugating a dozen or so people into a life of extreme poverty? Lol wut? They die eventually anyway lolz.
Ishkur: "Flash Player upgrade requiredYou must download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player to view this content."I already have the latest version of Flash.Why is Facebook stupid?

Happy Hours: IJust kidding about the last one - my tap water is just fine and it comes out of the dispenser on the 'fridge already cold....but I do really hate that there's a light telling me I should change the water filter.
