over 3.6 million views, i'm guessing you guys have already seen this but it's worth one more watch  :D

Lol the video response to it is also rather funny.

Interesting thought about giving up something meaningless to do something meaningful. I spent a few hours of my life last week going to see 10,000 BC and that did me more harm than good >:(!!

What I often think about is how many lives could be saved if every week you bought one less luxury item of food and gave the money to charity? I'm not sure how much it costs to save someones life nowadays but one source...

http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=34909

Claims that as little as 17p (~34 cents) can save a childs life.


I bought a flapjack today that cost 85p (~1.70 US Dollars). 5 Children.


Imagine if everyone in all of the more econimically developed world gave that much to charity for just one day of a 365 day year.

Maybe i'm missing some kind of fundemental flaw here I don't know.

NO, I agree, one thing I don't do is buy fast food, though occasionally I do buy it, maybe once a month.  That gves me more money to deal with, some of which I donate and tithe.  Also, every year my church youth group does a 30 Hour Famine, it's organized by World Vision, this year we raised over 5 thousand dollars.

Yes, 30 hours without food, but we can drink juices.  It's really not to bad.  That's a cool link, thanks for putting it up there.
