Finally someone said it. I think a lot of people nowadays crying about how they're poor on facebook and stuff are just doing it for attention too, because it's "cool" to be poor, while they write it from their iPhones, sitting in starbucks with an iMac in front of them.

i cant speak for natives, but from my dealings with the poor, many tend to shift responsibility to others. its part of the culture, its how they are raised, and its almost impossible to get them to see otherwise. its possibly the most common trait they share.
however, i agree with bigman, there are plenty of people who are hardworking and poor. many of these people who shift responsibility are still hardworking, they arent BAD people, just... a bit stupid sometimes.

They're a general case, really. You know plenty of people willing to work very hard but are still poor. Chances are, you live in a community that's outside of this generalization or you're exaggerating and you most likely know more people in the situation above.
Or I could be shitting out my mouth right now.

Alright let me amend that to only extend to america and other similar countries. Obviously the available opportunity to advance ones social situation doesn't necessarily within most third world countries.
I also made a point to mention that various extraneous situations can temporarily leave some 'poor' such as injury or death.
However, if you have enough money and time to get shit like a top of the line system, alchohol, and a big ass tv, and your living situation/life style sucks because you lack money, then the problem isn't that you're poor, it's that your lazy.
The reason I go out of my way to mention this super specific nuance of the 'poor' population is because the above OP is trying to say that owning nice things doesn't mean you're not poor when it really does.
TL;DR If you can afford top of the line entertainment but you're struggling with the necessities of life, you're not poor, you're weak willed, and there's nothing anyone can do to help you with that.

Yeah, but not nearly the scale of the rest of the world. Your comparison is still shoddy and stupid.
I think that if you're so desperatly poor that you're scavenging for food, you'd be on some sort of thing akin to or called 'welfare'. At that point, being the degenerate and greedy fucks we are, we fall into one of two categories. The 10% of people on these programs that actually have been tossed aside by society in the unfortunate turn of events known as life. Or the 90% of retards that against all odds of their intelligence learned they could get paid by society to do less work.
Know, in the case of general "poor"-ness, most of these people either failed to learn a single fucking thing through the educational system, which is acceptable, or against all odds lack the fundamental ability to learn on their own. Almost all 'poor' people can simply forgo their 100$ a month fucking iPhone and downgrade. It's asinine, people complain about being poor yet overall their quality of life has only worsened because of their own ignorance, disregarding the magical technological devices they own. Then they bitch and complain to the rest of the world like the vermin they are and ruin it for the 10% that actually need help because they've been shat on by the economy.
>Forgo proper education
In a first world country, if you are completely incapable of educating yourself an working your ass off to prove to people you know what you can do, then you get no sympathy from me.
Don't get me wrong, it sickens me that the world is the way it is, but a good proportion of things could be avoided or set in a way to be less damaging just by using your noggin and accepting that things will require more effort.

Oh, I got that statistic out from my ass from the fact I have only ever met one family who ever actually needed help from anyone. I've lived all across north America and Europe and have only met one family, that actually NEEDED assistance.
I am a very ignorant person to my beliefs, and I believe a arge majority if people are fucking retarded. All they do it bitch moan and complain instead of actually doing anything about it. Want to know something else, I am one of those bitchers and compainers, only instead of begging the government or bitching to other people how horrible life is, I accepted my situation and did what I could to make it the best.
I don't openly judge people unless I know their situation well enough, and based on the people I do know, which is a pretty large selection of people across the first world minus Oceania, is that all their problems could be solved if they grew a pair and fucking tried.

depending on the tribe and your living situation, but even then it wouldn't matter because they're pointing the finger at the rest of society and blaming it on them for their shitty housing while the elders, people they know personally who live in the same small towns are hollering just as loudly as the rest of them, are perfectly capable of giving them permission to make those 'changes' without any great expenditures on their part.
Also you can do basic maintenance and do shit like fix a leak or replace bad skirting without jumping through a bunch of hoops just fine. If you're going to go tearing out the entire floor because it's moldy then yeah you've gotta be a bit more formal about it, but if you maintain the place to begin with and fix problems like leaks as they arise then it doesn't get into that state. I lived in the same kind of place for 16 years and yeah, it's a bit of work maintaining them and keeping them up to code, but it's far from impossible and it hardly requires a fortune.

You find that a lot of people in the worst situations are actually in them because they regularly make bad decisions, like buying smokes before food.
A lot of people are dumb, but how many people will admit they're just fucking stupid? So they blame others.

that's still a myth today but it's never really been taken all that seriously. It comes from the idea that when you're cold you're more likely to get a cold; combined with the idea that your head is one of the most important things to keep warm.
I think the 'being cold gives you a cold' thing has more or less been proven to be sort of false From what i understand the part that's 'false' for it is that being cold doesn't give you a cold directly because catching a cold is a virus. But it does negatively impact your immune system making it so you are more likely to get a cold. As far as I'm concerned that means being cold can give you a cold but the internet is filled with nitpicky assholes so I figured it's best to clarify.
So yeah I guess I should amend my statement to be that they lacked 'clean running warm water' and ways to dry off afterwards, since it's true the temperature of said water probably was a contributing factor in this.

Emperor's New Groove does the 4th wall thing pretty well though and makes it part of the story. The post above, and the gif I'm posting are two of the better parts they have. But each person has their taste so it's fine if you don't enjoy that sort of thing.
I feel that Groove does it pretty well, though.
