    One with stupid people and hungry people.

    Lashik

    I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

    Kingdavid

    Then go.

    asymon

    Today you suffering will end!

    Oh, wait, nevermind.

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    Unless you think that you can save a person from starvation for $14.40, the comparison is irrelevant.

    It’s too late to change it, the world’s ending today.

    Any minute now.

    I have decided. It’s a pretty shitty place some of the time. But that thought process has no control over what may or may not be true.

    Sucks, don’t it.

    What a lame poster. As if that amount of money could have kept that number of people from starving to death. Or even feed them for one day.

    Korinthian

    So spend it on science researching more resilient crops, water filters or education for girls.

    Buying them meals is not the only thing that helps against starvation.

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    No one is starving due to a lack of farming technique. Most of the starving people in Africa are in an area once known as the Breadbasket of Africa. But they can’t farm because their countries are messed up by civil war and corrupt governments and anyone who goes out in the fields gets gunned down by one side or the other.
    I know everyone is the West has been trained to think that money can solve everything, but this is one of the cases where throwing cash at a problem won’t help.

    Korinthian

    I forgot that every starving person is located in Africa.

    I guess that’s another thing we in the West have been trained to think.

    Korinthian

    Seriously, though. My point was that the money could be used on things that have more long-lasting effects than straight-up food packs (and just giving food to people of Africa (as an example) inhibits local trade and can actually hurt farmers that has to compete with free food). Throwing money at a problem is one thing, using that money on things that have been proven to work is another. More resilient crops can help people that can actually harvest. Clean water helps is always a plus when you’re trying to survive and education for girls and women is something that… Read more »

    Here’s a map. I’m not stereotyping. Statistically speaking, the problem of starvation is almost exclusive to Africa and couple of war-torn countries in Asia.

    Political stability is prerequisite for addressing social issue.

    Or buy them birth control.

    “more resilient crops” what does that even mean and why is that a good thing and how would you come about making them?

    sambo78

    288 million couldn’t feed 20 million for one day?

    How much is your food bill a year, you dumb bitch?

    FullofStars

    Millions of people starving to death have little to do with just raw money. It has to do more with politics. For some of the nastier parts of the world, a population without the basic necessities (food, fuel to prep food, clean drinking water) is easier to prey upon for the local power mongers (warlords, dictators, etc.).
    Hell, if you want some depressing numbers, go look up how many school age children end up going hungry in the United States.

    Gmist

    I don’t see many starving children during my rambles across the US, most seem to eat to much.

    Aquaman43

    Look. We could send millions every year (and we do) to impoverished nations, they eat for a couple days, and then it’s gone and they’re starving again. They will not and can not change their lives in terms of education or trade skills, and even if we build schools for them to learn, there are no factories or businesses to work for. They will always be poor, hungry and needy, now and forever.
    As far as movies grossing millions, hey it’s a goddam democracy. Make your own fucking movie.

    “Starving In The Jungle”?

    Aquaman43

    Wha?

    bstaples

    288 million spent on Sex in the City 2 is the real fucking crime here.

    Correction: 20 million black people in Africa which isn’t anyone’s problem but the motherfucking Africans.

    288 million spent on Sex and the City is just 288 million Breyers won’t see in ice cream sales from the fat, stupid cunts who bought two seats each for their fat asses.

    Korinthian

    What about the starving people in North America?

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    There’s a difference between being hungry and starving. There are hungry people in North America, but statistically speaking, nobody is starving.

    Korinthian

    Since when did you become my nit-picking stalker?

    Shoo. I was talking to someone more interesting.

    Carnito

    Or guys could pull out and cum on the tits or the ass instead of inside the vagina, that’ll help starvation.

    Korinthian

    I can’t believe you missed the most obvious joke.

    storminator

    Still got over six hours til that rapture offer expires….

    This is how the world’s always been, and forever will it be.

    Get used to it.
