Because You Don't Appreciate Enough

Posts Tagged ‘first world’


If, while taking your morning “constitutional” ever day, you aren’t thanking your lucky stars that you are sitting on a clean white porcelain toilet instead of squatting over a ditch that runs through the middle of your town, then you certainly don’t appreciate how good you got it.

If you’ve never contracted cholera, dysentery, or hepatitis because your drinking water was contaminated with fecal matter, then you should probably quit bitchin’ about your health issues.

If you don’t have to wash your clothes in the same water where your neighbor poops, then are you basically living the high life.

Thank Your Lucky Stars

Three-fifths of the world’s population lack access to basic sanitation. So, when you poop in your clean toilet, in the cozy privacy of your own bathroom, and then clean yourself up with your scented soaps and suds… you’re in the minority. Let’s hope you appreciate this oft-forgotten fact.

Related Factoid:
First World and Third World are fairly well-understood concepts, but who, what, or where is the “Second World?” From Wikipedia:

The term “Second World” is a phrase that was used to describe the Communist states within the Soviet Union’s sphere of influence or those countries that had centrally-planned economies.

So where do the commies poop?

First world sanitation is effing awesome.
