Wow, I'm so glad to know that you're not bragging.
Honestly, what was the point of this thread? If you really want to know, go find out for yourself. But it's pretty obvious most of the stuff you just said is total nonsense. For going to "the best schools" how come you can't spell properly? What - can't afford a dictionary? I'm usually not this blunt, but it seriously bugs me when people just post to brag. I guess compared to you, I am poor. Or middle-class, whatever you want to call it.
But I've always been grateful for what I've had so it's kind of sad it took you 18 years realize you're "extremley" wealthy and lucky.


jelous?

+1 on the point of this thread. I grew up poor and just didn't know it until I went to a private school full of spoiled bastards. To paraphrase a line from one of Lauryn Hill's songs, I was "...unaware of what we didn't have..." Maybe not dirt poor, but I do remember eating "gubmint cheez" and playing with cardboard boxes and other stuff like that when I was bored. I realize that I was still happy and now know how hard my parents had to work and what they sacrificed for what little we had.

Being poor sometimes is a good thing and a bad thing, at times it can consume you and at others it can give you strength. My family use to be broke and everyday was a struggle. Our minds were in disturbia and some days we didn't even know how the fuck were going to get through the week when we don't even have enough money for McDonalds. In the end though my family got through it and we're living very fortunate lives today, being poor made us appreciate life more and in the end made us stronger. We're humble and more conservative people nowadays when we don't even have to be.

I've seen firsthand what poverty and desperation does to a person. Its a pathetic and pitiful thing to watch the old crawl away into whatever dark corners they can hide in, knowing full well that the government neither cares nor acknowledges their presence.

I've seen people sleeping on cardboard beds beneath busy highways and foraging through the garbage bins for cans and other recyclables to trade in for cash, or simply looking for scraps of food. I've seen men old enough to be my grandfather riding rusty bicycles and dragging behind them a mountain of flattened cardboard boxes and newspapers to make ends meet.

Poverty is a terrible, terrible thing but the worst part is the negligence of a government whose ministers earn over a million US dollars a year and whose Prime Minister earns well over US 3.7 million a year.


my dad says becuz most of them didnt study or they so lazy or they crazy

I am not "jelous", so no worries. My life is going awesome. Everything I've worked for is coming through. I have amazing people surrounding me and helping me. Plus, I guess no one can call me "poor" any time soon. I love my friends and they love me and I'm so happy with what I have.
The only real dumpsters on this planet are ungrateful people.

What I'm saying at the end is pure lies? I'm sure I know the country I stay in better than you. No, it's not America. I use the US currency as a gauge so people have a rough estimate of the amount used.
