You see those commercials with the guy in the third-world village talking about how misreable their lives are? I always have to change the channel as fast as I can when I see those. I always feel so guilty because I don't have any money or a job. It just makes you feel like such a horrible person because you look around and see all of these nice things you have and those kids don't have a damn thing!

I remember once the magical overlord of TV decided "today I'm going to get Papickett" and he almost did. I saw the commercial and I'm like "Quick change the channel. I can't take it!!!" So I change the channel and boom, the same commercial is on the next channel so I'm thinking "WTF" so I change the channel again and guess what I run into? Another one! So now I think my TV is haunted so I just turned it off for a while.

I'm going to throw in some controversy here. We can throw as much money as we like at developing countries, but until those countries are governed by people who see governing as a way to solve a national problem instead of just being a way out of the poverty trap (i.e. "Aid? Ta muchly, I'll take that"), donations will do very little.

The aid the UK sent to the Boxing day Tsunami people STILL hasn't arrived...

^^^Damn you beat me to it. Yeah a lot of the times when I see those adds I wonder if the leaders of those countries are watching. Because many of those countries aren't poor, and most of Africa is rich in resources, but their governments/dicators pocket most of it and give the remaining money/food to their militias. Thus the citizens starve. president Mugabe of Zimbabwe is a good example.


EDIT: I still feel bad though, just more angry at how messed up everything is over there, and no one (including foreign investors) seems to care.
