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.


Or, "I wasted a minute of my life watching a video whose execution didn't live up to the quality of its premise."

You know, those assholes are really farking lucky. They never have to worry about any of the shiat they're obviously reading off of prompt cards. Also, don't whine to me about "clean" water. Do you know what it's like to try and drink a glass of heavily chlorinated municipal water? Might as well just take a straw to the swimming pool. Sometimes, I even have to settle for Desani and that shiat's just filtered tap water. Ain't nobody got time for that!

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.

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



Most people are empathetic towards the suffering of others. Look at how US individuals turn out the money for disasters around the world. There are limits.  I no longer give money to bums that want a beer. If your people keep pumping out babies to starve to death generation after generation after generation, fark it. Darwin is calling.

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.


Because ultimate outcomes are divorced from daily life. As you surely know every time you eat a Big Mac. Because I'm a selfish being, and unlike everyone else I'm honest about it. Because this is all there is, so my interest in continuing it while I still have it good is logical. Why would you even consider that I'd want to end the only tiny slice of existence I will ever get to experience? I mean, I can understand why I might want to off you, since you're quite annoying, but why would I want to off me, when I'm the best that humanity has to offer? Makes no sense.

I hate it when:

I drop my Mercedes off for service and the loaner car has the dealership name all over it.

I go to Petrossian and they're out of Beluga.

I have to go to a coop board meeting.

My accountant can't do my taxes without meeting with me.

I have to listen to subordinates complain about mandatory United Way contributions.

The firm raises the "voluntary" contribution to their favorite PAC.

Third World Problems As Read By First World People:

1. I hate it when my boss belittles my abilities and there are no rebels to kidnap him/her.

2. I hate it when there are no leeches around and poison needs to be sucked out of my flesh.

3. I hate it when I have just left the nightclub and there aren't any plants to hide behind to pee or poo.

4. I hate it when my random sexual encounter provides me with all sorts of STDs.

5. I hate it when I get raped in the alleyway and I'm not wearing my "penis destroyer" device.

6. I hate it when my neighbor is being a biatch and there are no witch doctors to cast evil spells on them.

7. I hate being homosexual when some religious figure keeps telling people that I "eat da poo poo" even though I don't.

8. I hate being nagged by my wife and not have any contaminated water to make her drink and shut up.

9. I hate being in a country that keeps receiving donations from nations around the world but I don't get any of the help.

10. I hate flies that hover around me because it means I'm either dying or I'm having dinner tonight.

I agree the problems are too trite. I think they should have gone with things we've actually heard that people REALLY gripe about, not just common annoyances.

Some things I've actually heard in my life include:

"My husband just came back from Italy and he got me the WRONG Gucci sunglasses! WTF?"

"UGH my parents got me the WHITE iphone for Christmas. I wanted black!"

"I can't believe my parents won't pay for my rent any more. Do they even know how expensive it is to live in New York?"

"Omg why does it take so long for my Keurig to make a damn cup of coffee??"

and so on and so forth.
