Very much worth a look

  • I have several responses:

    1. That would be a boring internet – only 3 people.

    2. There are problems with turning the world into a village – if 6 of the hundred owned 59% of the wealth, wouldn’t there be a mutiny?

    3. The facts provided have been chosen very carefully to exaggerate the problem of poverty – I noticed that the fact that there are more fat people than starving people got left out.

    i was like “wtf” when they sed there would be 61 asians. most of these are indeed starving, with like 11 americans, about 2/3rds of which are obese. that would mean there are about 7 fat people from america, as obesity is not a big problem in asia or africa

  • Your view on the wealth of the world has been affected by the persuasive powers of pictures of starving children – there ARE moe fat people than starving people in the world (ask the statisticians). Adequate food does not rely on a good education or wealth – most people in Asia are farmers who can provide enough food for themselves easily.

    i wonder how long it would take for the aids to spread from that one person, thus wiping out the world

  • Longer than you would expect, if they were one of the people with the internet.

    imagine that person going on those dating sites, then the other people finding out they have aids. what chance do u think s/he would have of scoring? dont forget some people could be desperate for some pun-tai

  • I haven’t any idea what his or her chances would be. Somebody should start a reality TV show placing 100 people in a village with only 12 computers (3 connected to the internet), where 59% of the weight of the population lies with the 6 heaviest people, 59% of the wealth lies with the 6 wealthiest people, etc…

    I think the outcome would be a lot more interesting, informative and educational than that other reality TV rubbish.

    are you refering to basically every channel four show?

    btw, did u know that when prince charles met a guy that had a show on chnnl 4 he asked the man what he did for a living. the man said that he hosted a show on 4. charles responded, possibly with intention, “oh, theres nothing but filth on channel 4”

  • Yes, I am referring to basically every Channel 4 show, and I agree with the statement “Oh, theres nothing but filth on Channel 4.” Channel 4 used to be good, but now I think ‘five’ is better than it, because ‘five’ has lots of interesting documentaries and House.

    By the way, did you know that Ireland has a channel called ‘Channel 6‘?
