2. Chris Rock said it best (I'm paraphrasing) "People in third world countries have to walk miles for water everyday. Americans won't even drink the water that comes out of their tap, they want bottled water. People hate America because they have water they only use to wash their ass! They wont even drink it! Americans have ass water and I'm walking miles for mud water to drink?"

You are a very lucky person, one who knows and accepts the existence of a worse self as well as a better one. Few people have the courage or the clarity of vision to do this. Go forth with confidence and love the world as it deserves: it has no secrets from the likes of you; indeed, it will happily yield up its treasures.

5) Do you gain pleasure from observing attractive people in every day situations, like at work or on the street? Do you feel angry when you see other people doing this involving a person you like? How about if people feel this way about your brother, your sister, your mother? Is it really acceptable to fantasise sexually about some stranger on the street when the thought of a stranger doing the same to your sibling would infuriate you? Should I be watching and sexually gratifying myself with porn when the thought of my sister being in one would make me go insane?

3rd world countries are definately a consideration, but many US citizens live without, and are at, or well within the poverty level. Everyone should have to volunteer at a food bank, seeing the inferior products that some people here need to survive on. Working at a soup kitchen during a holiday season will also open they eyes of some people. Put aside $10.00 a month for a year, and use the money to purchase jackets or blankets to hand out to people on the street, instead of spending your money on something you can use but don't really need!
