Or maybe it's just me. Oh well, here goes nothing.
Today I didn't have much time at all. Same as yesterday, where I didn't have time to write blog posts as well. Back to the point: I didn't answer Freerice questions (I'm going to after this post). But then I realized:
If these quizzes are actually preventing people from dying of starvation, THEN WHY AM I NOT ON 24/7. It's kind of sickening when I come to think about it. "I don't have time to save people's lives."
But that's the case. Eventually, those grains that you contribute will feed someone, will prolong a possibly near-death life.
And here, sitting at home in comfy industrialized North America, Europe, or wherever else, we do it to be convenient for us. Sure it's nice knowing we're contributing to the cause, but just enough so it's comfortable for our schedule. Well quite frankly, death by starvation does not operate according to your schedule.

One might argue that "Well, Viktor, the rice doesn't get there immediately. It's not like by answering questions, you immediately feed someone in Africa. First Freerice.com probably has weekly/monthly inventories of the amount of grains, purchases those packages, then additional organizations ship it over. But my counter-argument to this is, if not enough people earn those grains in the first place, then by the time they're shipped over, there might not be enough.
So, I encourage you to do the same. Try generating as much hype about Freerice as possible. No matter what bad shit you're going through in your life, (it all seems to suck at times), nothing in our lives compares to what people in 3rd world countries go through.
So go ahead, take some time, this is more worthwhile then spending your time on the internet reading random blogs :)
