No mention of the impending Martian invasion.  MSM sucks.

Poor people should learn that income inequality is a good thing. Rich people are the early adopters of every new technology and their money makes it possible to develop new things that can be manufactured in high quantities later. We wouldn't have cell phones without them.

/or cars, TVs, home theaters, refrigerators, shoes, computers...

Water crises, for instance, rank as the third highest concern...

As Americans, we're fine, wanna know why? Water... We got a lot of it. Ever notice poor countries? Very dry... We have so much water it's a joke. We play in it, we have water parks. We squirt it down tubes and roll around in it and shoot it. We have fountains. A fountain is nothing more than us shooting fresh water into the air with our middle fingers saying "F- you! Look at all this water! We don't even need it." Then what do we do at the fountain? We take money we don't need, and throw it at the fountain.

Could you imagine a kid fresh from Pakistan coming to this country and seeing that? "What is this beautiful porcelain bowl fill with cool clean water? What do you do with this?"

Oh... Uh... We shiat and piss in it. I mean, I wouldn't just shiat in it if there was piss in it. I wouldn't shiat it, i would flush it, get 6 fresh gallons and then shiat into that. 'Cause you know, I'm not going to shiat into pissy water. That's nasty. So I flush it away, bring up the fresh clean water, then boom... Or if there's a spider in it... If there's a spider in there, I'm not going to shiat in it either, it could wake up, bite my ass. So... Flush it, bring up 6 fresh gallons, then shiat in the fresh water...

Even in our showers we can't seem to get enough water going down the drain. It used to be 1 normal shower head. Now it's a man-hole cover blasting thousands of gallons a second then 4 other spigots hitting in different directions. Because why should you have to move in a shower?

Then we drink bottled water. But not any bottled water. Bring me water from a poor, island nation.. Fiji's water... Bring me water from there because they have very little drinking water. I want that water....

For some reason - possibly blocking software - that web page comes out as a list of links followed by the article.  The article headline is '10 greatest threats facing the world in 2014", followed by a stock image, followed by:

So the #1 threat to the world in 2014 is Pony Wang.  I never would have guessed that one.
