Obesity, depression and other lifestyle diseases!

What wouldn't a starving kid give to suffer obesity?

Or depression - when one is fighting to go from one day to the next, where is the time to be depressed?

I posted this in another thread recently -

Such is life, we have a problem of plenty and others have never seen anything at all! We have a lot to be thankful for.

When I took Jr to the emergency room recently, my truck was too tall to fit in the ER parking garage. :ph34r:

I have read over and over again folks on TT saying issues, problems, or questions that come up on TT are "First World Problems (FWP)".

I don't know how long this thread will stay active, but in the event it goes on for years, I want to record here for posterity that it only got out of hand once everybody started feeling the need to copycat sharp-tongued, sassy-mouthed TTer Krieg's second favorite phrase (and close runner-up to "People of Kreuzkölln"). And to add my own mustard to it--he's the only one who ever really used it appropriately, all the more apt coming from himself as a person who actually comes from the "Third World" although he is now officially way more German than you. For the record Krieg loves expensive things and hates people who try to glamorize being poor so it's not that your problems are so trivial in comparison to his own. He just wants you to fix your shit or STFU already. Note for posterity finished.

But back on topic: I have two first world problems at the moment.

One, although I own four rechargeable AAA batteries, when the two in my electronic dictionary are dead, I have to put them in the charger and wait, because the other two are for my rear bike light and usually stay on the back of whichever one of my three bikes I'm riding at the moment, all of which are in the cellar. If only I had as many AAAs as I do AAs this wouldn't be a problem.

Two, we have an on-site laundry room in our complex. Because it's so clean and spacious and equipped with a Trockenraum which nobody ever steals from, I usually just leave my clothes there until the next time I do laundry, because there's no point in making two trips, not that I come anywhere close to running out of clean things to wear during the intervening 7-10 days anyway. Unfortunately, though, sometimes it means I'll be getting dressed and wish I could wear a well-loved hoodie or skirt but it's clean and dry in the Trockenraum so I just have to suffer without it until the next time I make the fifty-foot trip.

A comment from Africa on a cricket thread I read this morning: why is India so bad at football? Because every time they get a corner, they build a f...ng shop on it! :)

Does that count?

We received too many chocolate Father Christmases for Nikolaus - I am worried about the effect it'll have on my hips!

For reasons out of my control, I'm stuck in my warm apartment for the weekend, with a well-stocked refrigerator and storage cabinet, 6 bottles of clean water, along with the tap water, lots of juices and sodas, an oven, stovetop and electric grill, a shower, toilet, coffee maker and a laptop for posting here and searching for porn.

The first world problem is not being able to go home for one weekend, which, considering the luxuries, certainly pales in comparison to third world problems.

The extra lengths people go to to find the perfect gift at Christmas is the central theme behind John Lewis' Christmas advertising campaign. Searching high and low for that "perfect gift" Christmas gift is a first world problem. This promotion campaign was first unveiled for retailers to view.

John Lewis Marketing Director, Craig Inglis, said: "We know that our customers put real effort and emotion into finding the perfect gift for their loved ones at Christmas. This year's ad brings that to life, with a creative twist, as we follow our hero on an epic journey."

Meanwhile in Africa.

I bought so many boutique Bavarian beers that I'm unable to get them all cold fast enough. After my fifth one, I have to resort to drinking one of them at a sub-standard cool temperature.

And I think iTunes 11 sucks too.

I want to do my nails, but all my nail polish is in the cellar and the cellar door is really heavy and difficult to lock. Sometimes it takes me ALMOST A FULL THIRTY SECONDS to lock it properly. *heavy sigh*

Unless you're drinking one every 12 minutes, all you needed to do was stick 6 or 7 in the freezer for an hour to an hour and a half. At the rate I drink a beer (anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on what I'm doing at the time), I'm fine as long as I have 2 or 3 cold ones in the fridge. Another 6 or 7 are cold by the time I need them.

I just had to wrap up about thirty Christmas presents - it was so difficult to find something to buy this year, as everybody has what s/he needs!
