I don't really donate to these things since there are like, 7 billion people in the world atm, every person I save is going to potentially fuck me over in the long run when it comes to food resources in the future. Now's not really the right time to be saving lives, my own included. I'd totally donate if the world population is about 1/50th of the current size, though even that number is questionable tbh.


Our world is not overpopulated in any way...We have technologies and conditions to give water and food to more than 15billion EASILY, TODAY.

The problem is our society.

If USA invested 1/10 of what spends in war on technologies to increase food productivity, and if poor countries instead of exporting all their food, at least give their population a little, there would not be hungry.

with the development of technology, I believe that our world would support more than 50 billion people.

One thing that i will never do in my life is donate to japan. No matter what country you are, if you want to find people to help that much, just walk to the corner on the street.

I can't. I donated all my money to Geohot. Sorry Japan.

Donated blood for Japan yesterday.

I do not do monetary donations, tho I will continue to support Japan through the purchase of many anime/video games.

I did think of importing some games instead, but who knows how much help it'll do. 'sides, if Japan doesn't use the money, then some other country will for sure.

Another thanks to the donators, and thanks to darth for helping me get the word out.

be whichever problem it might be, the end results won't differ much, I'm looking to the future, and 15 billion is not a hard number with how many people we have in the world atm. it's not the right time to be saving, all that does is fueling people's egos. Also keep in mind how much more we need to take down in order to increase food production, the more people we have, the worse off we are in the future as it stands right now for humans and for nature. If anything, we need more disasters in more populated areas, I'm counting on you Earth!

I'm not sure if you would feel the same way if the disater affected you or your family. Or if you were from Japan and this happened when you were out of the country and then were to read this kind of comment.

Excellent to see real practical help coming in from the UK, US, Aus, NZ and the Swiss, expert search and rescue, technical expertise etc.  They have already sent rescue teams and experts.  These countries are always the first to offer real useful help.

I really cant undertsand why people above are trying to downplay financial help.. yes it isnt as relevant when you are talking about the 3rd biggest economy on the planet... but there will be a need at a social level on the ground for financial aid.

Because it is shocking...Every month in a country like Congo atleast 40-50.000 people die... Sure plenty of killing but also plenty of being sick, not having food, not having water, children soldiers who become a soldier to atleast have food every day.... The last ten years the number of casualties is between 6-8 million..Atleast 50% could have been saved if their was enough funds for the organizations over their..

Where is Darth's post on my wall about donating for Congo?

To make it even worse last week Donkey kong avater dude made a thread asking who donates money,  less than then people said they donate money  (that is when I last read it).

Now Holy Japan has an earthquake  and their will be probably maximum 10.000 casualties..The same amount of casualties that Congo has every week for more than 10 years everyone starts donating for me people are just saying;..

A japanase persons life >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  African persons life..



 

Yes i did, i pray for Japan.
