The following is one I find hits home quite hard: #FistWorldProblems (Click to show)
 

Yeah, we all b**** about our #firstworldproblems here but I thought I would put it into perspective sometimes.

 

Almost half the ENTIRE world lives on less than $2.50 a day. The number of people this is equal to is roughly 25x the people currently residing in the entire Russian Federation.

 

Just in children, in two weeks, about 200,000 will be dead from preventable diseases that would cost $1 to prevent. This is the same as the entire population of Orlando Florida. This number is only in Children of course.

 

Billions live each day in fear of the natural elements, billions fear when, not if, they will get raped, and about how they will survive. 

 

80% of the world lives on less than what amounts to $10 a day. This is roughly SIX TIMES the entire population of Africa that lives on so little a day. 

 

This is the 'equality' that our current world leaders and governments always speak of. They head to the U.N and speak of peace, liberation, clean water, and help, but they head back home at the end of the day to receive millions in lobbied fees

 

Speaker of the House John Bohner

http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/summary.php?cid=N00003675

 

receives checks of $78k from Murray Energy, 62k from FirstEnergy, and the list goes on.

 

The US congress is filled with milionaires and billionaires, the the PRC, UK, FR, and RF isn't far off.

 

This is a time bomb waiting to happen, in where 80% live on less than $10, and the rest are becomming poorer while a small percent are becomming richer.

I think most people are aware of these problems. Nothing new.

Aware yes, but of the magnitude?

 

Most I have personally asked gave numbers signifigantly lower than what was really happening. Like maybe 5% live without clean water? Or maybe only like a few countries live with so little.

On the subject of VN through legit channels though, why the **** haven't VNs caught on with tablets though? I have my suspicions but I'd like to hear what others think of first.

Are they really becoming poorer though? Now is as good a time as any for a child to be born, anywhere in the world, so one could argue that things are getting better and better as a whole.

 

Wealth inequality will plague us until the end of time, it's human nature, so it's up to philanthropy to make a difference in the world. I expect great things from you, Panda-sama, because believe it or not, you and I are part of the "1%".

 

That's why I've decided to switch from studying science and instead, pursue things in the business and finance world. Even as I mess around learning how to day trade starting with bitcoins and such, I feel no guilt taking money away from other people, because it will eventually be used for good.

I took Enviromental Science with a University unit last semester so I was exposed to a bit of data. Nothing huge or anything but with so many more births happening right now due to low education in those countries, those increased children and burden are thus reflected on the economy.

 

Sure, with the world being better, having Timmy from Zimbabwe is cool, but what if Mommy and Daddy have 12? 

 

College/University students are pretty much part of the 1%. If you are reading this, you are part of the upper 5% at the VERY least.

 

But yeah, like you say. Economics models, and the world would 'fail' if everyone suddenly had the same amount of money and what not. Human nature, and our innate narcicism and want of 'good' is what is making the world go around right now.

 

I feel no guilt mining my $140 worth of Dogecoins. Because I'm paying my University $40k already. They can pay for the $200 worth of electricity.

Don't they just give the percentage of positive enough reviews instead of just the average score (like Metacritic does)? If so, I can see how it got such score.

I didn't notice that, but you are right. What a lame way to rate movies... The average is 7.8/10.

Ah...... Didn't notice that... Explains so much. lol >_<

Yup, so get a physical copy if you really want, otherwise don't bother.

The only reason I buy physical copies is to have physical copies. If I support the IP owner, that's a plus.

The IP is in the hands of 5pb. IIRC...

Whoops, I didn't even know that...

Eh 5pb is a good company anyway!

They have caught on a bit in Japan, just not in America yet. For some reason most people don't wanna play eroge in public places... That being said, I do all the time on the bus. :ph34r:

^I'll give you a cookie if you play an H scene in public

 

Playing an eroge in public? Meh, looks like any other game. 

 

Plays an H scene in public? Pure bawlls of thunder
