    saw a story on ctv news yesterday. according to studies, rich people spend less on charity than non rich people. rich people give less consideration for others, are less compassionate, are more ruthless, and are basically just a bunch of assholes. it was on tv, so i haven't been able to find the link. but i believe it :D

    Rich Canadians must be the worst kind of rich people.

    I think I would stay away from them, based on this story.

    Don't work for them...don't talk to them...don't ask anything of them....

    Maybe they'll just die or move somewhere else.


    If I meet an a$$hole...am I to assume that they are rich...or does it not work that way?

    i never said there aren't exceptions. i hear bill gates donates a shitload and is a very kind person. but as a general statement, the studies are pretty clear.

    Maybe the poor should be donating their time working at kindness kitchens for the rich. If all they have to give is lessons in kindness they should be giving of their wisdom. Poor should be donating "How to be great" lessons.

    Sorry Nicole but it's really that a lot of people just suck. And when they have means and don't need others it's easier for them to be themselves

    Rich people don't suck. We need to feel sorry for them. They are under more stress than us poor folk.

    I do not suck, I am awesomeness personified.

    No, scratch that - my awesomeness can not be contained within the confines of merely being human; it can not even be defined by energy nor matter as currently understood by the homosapien brain. Nay! We span the cosmos!
