Children in Africa don't have water, food, or electricity, let alone a freaking laptop. In Africa, it costs 19 cents to feed a child for a day. To buy a new MacBook, it costs over $1,200 (plus taxes).

In Africa, it costs just a few pennies a month to hydrate 20 people. With $300 dollars, you can give water to 20 deprived African children for 25 years.
If you buy an iPhone with the cheapest service plan, it will cost over $550 in two years. If you took that money and spent it on children who need water, you could hydrate 240 African children for two years. If you wanted to hydrate a large amount of people for a single day, instead of buying an iPhone, you could give water to 175,200 children.
Yeah, those poor saps with iPhones, laptops, food, water, shelter, and free speech sure have it rough. If it wasn't obvious already, these people have absolutely no perspective at all. They live in their own little world of, "Me, me, me."
