Electricity is such a common thing that it's hard to imagine a quarter of the Earth's population lives without it. It's also hard to imagine that there are 210 million orphans in the world that are living without parents. The point is, always be grateful for what you have because there are plenty of people out there wishing they could walk a mile in your shoes.

There are nearly 210 million orphans in the world

There's a common thread through most of these items. They are nearly all from socialist third-world sh*tholes.

BTW. #22 is a big steaming pile of horsesh*t. Only 53, or about 3% of those 1591 executions were in the US, and they were ALL for premeditated murder after the perps had multiple appeals. China has executed more people than the entire rest of the world combined, and the number is certainly MUCH more than 1500. Many of them are executed for nonviolent economic crimes, and they get no appeals at all -- just a bullet to the back of the head for which their family has to pay if they want the body returned for burial.

Poverty doesnt kill anyone, I should know. Unclean water, poor sanitation, lack of food, lack of medical treatment and so on has the ability to eventually kill, but poverty itself does not. As far as the cow is concerned, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
#9 is complete BS, I have done tours of both places.
#11 according to what exchange?
#12 who cares WHY they donate? -and whose business is it anyway?
#13 and take a chance on high repair costs of their cars and insurance...sure they did.
#14 and we still overpopulate those areas as well...
#18 I would like to see the actual facts on that one..who admitted to that for the factual analysis?
your "facts" are just a bit generalized in nature. How about looking into "why" these facts take place?
