Broke college student working two dead end jobs to make ends meet? He needs higher dreams.
@ComradeOtis, compared to living in let's say rural Ethiopia not being able to eat every day and unable to have access to clean drinking water, you're living the life. Gotta look at the larger picture my man
@Darkblaze, ethiopia is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. You are probably better of being a pleb in africa than a college student in the US. Probably richer too, with all your credit card debt.
@Darkblaze, no debt is better than any debt
@Downvote God, note how I say rural. And this applies to more than just Ethiopia. Various African, central american, and Asian countries have poverty levels that we can't begin to understand living in the united States. But I'd much rather be indebted tens of thousands of dollars in the US than a dirt poor kid in Panama huffing glue to take away the pains of hunger.
@Darkblaze, either way, this Facebook crap needs to get out of here.
@Darkblaze, you mean like living in poverty stricken Detroit or Chicago? The whole US isn't upper middle class. Not trying to start an argument but a lot of those countries are richer than most European countries. I see your point and respectfully disagree.
@Downvote God, of course there is poverty no matter where you go. But on a global scale, here in the US the poverty isn't nearly as bad. We have a significant amount of government assistance to help those people, especially kids. In the far outreaches of these other countries is where it gets terrible. What I said about the kids huffing glue was no exaggeration. A close friend of mine goes on a mission trip with his church to various central american countries every year. He tells me heartbreaking stories when he comes back of the level of poverty that exists there. Sure a lot of these countries have moderate to well of economies, but the gap in those countries is significant. So yeah, we have poverty in the US. But they can at least get 1 hot meal a day (most of them) the same cannot be said for so many others, sadly.
@Downvote God, life tip: go to community college and save money. Been working since highschool and financial aid actually gives me money cause my family's poor
@InsanityWolf404, I do both actually. And work two jobs. But ones a pizza place so it more like heaven plus another job.
@Darkblaze, the same things happen in America. Parts of Detroit didn't have water for a month. There are plenty of example of American poverty. Just because we are huge country does not me poverty is a problem. And like I said, if you are defining poverty by economic wealth, Americans are some of the poorest individuals in the world because we love our credit cards. But that's Symantecs. All I'm saying is that poverty is just as bad in parts of our country but that is easily overlooked because of our massive super sized size.
@Darkblaze, but you can always dream for more
@paunchy, indeed you can, my good sir. Indeed you can.
@Darkblaze, and let's not forget those in auschwitz...
@Downvote God, As a fellow college student, and as an International Relations major, I respectfully disagree with nearly all the points you have made. However, seeing as this is an app for comedic enjoyment, I say happy browsing and have a good day.
@Darthdoodie, like what? Just because you disagree doesn't mean that we have to argue. Human beings are in fact able to converse without getting into a fight haha. You probably know more than me so tell me what you don't agree with.
@ComradeOtis, I never got accepted to collage. So yes.
@Downvote God, Maybe not Africa, but everybody in the US has it better than average North Koreans. Yes, the ones who are sent to labor camps because they complained about their sawdust portions. If you want to tell me that heavy debt and being educated is worse than eating sawdust daily, be my guest. But we'll both know that's a lie.
@Downvote God, Well I suppose to start off I should mention that I am by no means disputing the fact that poverty in the US is a severe problem. However, the living conditions of the poverty-stricken in the US are better than the mildly poor in much of Africa, if only for the fact that at least the US has a functional government (queue flamewar). For goodness sake most poor Africans receive aid not from their respective governments but from Non-Governmental Organizations from developed Western countries; a problem in and of itself (look up Dependency Theory). There are numerous failed states in Africa where a central government is non-existent (Somalia, South Sudan, and the CAR primarily) because it has lost a monopoly on violence within it's borders. Next, I'd like to dispel the notion that economic growth (measured in Gross Domestic Product) necessarily directly causes a higher quality of living for the majority of a countries populace, which thus far seems to be in question in
@Downvote God, Africa. For example, Nigeria, Africa's wealthiest nation with the twentieth largest nominal GDP (as measured by the International Monetary Fund) in the world also has a Human Development Index rating (which measures life expectancy at birth, quality and availability of education, and income per capita) of 0.514 as of 2015, the 152nd in the world. It is also plagued by ISIS's West African Province aka Boko Haram to the Northeast, which until recently exerted military dominance in at about 3 Nigerian provinces. So in conclusion, at least poverty in America is not defined by pervasive religious violence, warlords and child soldiers, weapons/drugs/human/sex trafficking, epidemics, starvation, and government inaction.
@ComradeOtis, oh man does that hit home with me
@R2 LSD2, I think the big point he’s trying to make is in our society now, anybody and everybody complains about where they are at and what they have to deal with, whether that be a broke college student, which they chose to do btw, or a ceo of a big company, it seems nobody can be happy and everyone has to bit*h that it’s not enough or they are depressed blah blah. Negativeness is the new wave and me personally, am sick of hearing it.
But only a man, women don't have dreams.
@Jimmy McGill, as a uterus I am offended
@TheUterus, as a penis, I am aroused.
@TotalBull, as a uterus, I make the vagina aroused. You're welcome.
So he's dreaming he's pooping?
@Ceaseless Cessation , somebody is constipated somewhere
I keep opening up Facebook on accident....oh.
I mean, quality of life is probably pretty bad underground
@John Everydad, quantity of life is pretty bad too I hear
I'm concerned that he's within the earth. Why is he in the earth? Who or what trapped him there and for what reason? Should we be trying to free him? So many questions.
Fat, lonely, and stupid? Wow and I thought I had it rough
On the toilet taking the biggest sh!t of my life?
I feel bad for his nightmare.
So the men is thinking of going on funny pics while he poops?
Sounds like someone's having a nightmare then
Aww yes, my daily dose of feely pics
There sleeping men somewhere in the planet living vicariously though me?!?!
Happy military man with a job he loves, opportunities to travel all the time, free education, a truly incredible girlfriend, and a lot to be thankful for?
That guy must be a fool
His dreams suck
I'm gonna be that guy tha lays some hard truth. Many homeless people deserve to be in their situation. I volunteered in L.A. to help homeless get food and clothes, and I've met enough to know that they couldn't care less about work or advancing themselves. They just want stuff for free and aren't willing to work for it. One time we ran outta Capri suns and a couple of them were told to wait twenty minutes until they came by with more. They all were too lazy to wait, so they left. Also if you ask them what they wanted to be when they were younger, all of them had ridiculous unreal expectations of what they could do. Actor, singer, betting famous in general, or winning the lottery. Many of them made themselves homeless, i know it sounds harsh but it's fst too true.
@Punny lad, umm no. I volunteered at LA on Cloud9 for 2 years at skid row I'm LA. Yes there are some lazy people that just gave up, but there are plenty of people that rolled the dice and came up short. Don't be an asshole because you have the privilege to make choices and they worked out. Not everyone is so lucky. For example, I met a single mom with 2 kids. She worked 2 jobs but just couldn't keep up with the rent. Bank foreclosed house. Boom homeless. Is she lazy? No.
@Downvote God, didn't say all of em buddy.
@Downvote God, many is a gross over generalization. Probably less than 15%, "buddy"
@Punny lad, Your anecdotal experiences are not universal truths.
I doubt that.
Well he better dream me $1,000,000 dollars
What kind of drugs is he on, because there is no way a sober person would dream this
I can honestly see that. Not everyone can say they own 4 cars and are 21
I know a lot of you guys are pc gamers, and on the off chance you could help, I recently downloaded risk of rain on steam, but when I start it up the audio plays normally but the screen freezes black. I can alt+tab out and back, and the screen changes to the title, but then it freezes again. I tried googling the problem, but I can't find anything. In the unlikely chance anyone can help me, I'll repay you by saying thank you
