    Poll for Americans.

    Are you spoiled? Are you the exception? what can we do to make our lives more in tune with reality?

    Do you worry about when you will eat or what you will eat or if you will eat at all?

    Do you wonder when you will be raped by a band of militants?

    Do you wonder if your child will live through the night due to hunger?

    Do you want bread for the family or your next raise so you can buy a new car?

    Do you worry about a poor chicken living in harsh conditions or just having a chicken to eat at all?

    Do you feel it is too much of a hassle to wait for emergency help to arrive or if the help is even available?

    Do you think this is a silly poll and I am full of $hit?

    I think anyone that has access to this forum is spoiled. Over 50% of the world population has never used a telephone, in there life. You have access to a computer, to information, you are spoiled.

    I have food, shelter, people who love me, and free time to do things I enjoy. Yup, I am spoiled.

    Not sure how to answer part two of your question...

    5yr old thread, you sure this is the oldest one? and not just the one with the last oldest reply?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Spoiled, to me, implies that you don't deserve or respect what you have. I've worked hard to get everything I have, with a few exceptions of things like birthday gifts. I'm priveledged, but not spoiled.

    Do you worry about when you will eat or what you will eat or if you will eat at all?
    No.

    Do you wonder when you will be raped by a band of militants?
    No.

    Do you wonder if your child will live through the night due to hunger?
    I have no children.

    Do you want bread for the family or your next raise so you can buy a new car?
    I'll take the bread. My current vehicle runs just fine and I have no plans to replace it.

    Do you worry about a poor chicken living in harsh conditions or just having a chicken to eat at all?
    Honestly, I've never worried about chickens. There are plenty of things I can hunt for if the grocery store runs out of chicken.

    Do you feel it is too much of a hassle to wait for emergency help to arrive or if the help is even available?
    Unless it's necessary, it's faster for me to drive to the emergency room than wait for an ambulance.

    Do you think this is a silly poll and I am full of $hit?
    Yes and yes; but I was bored.
