          The "jobs" consists mostly of child slavery in 3rd world countries.

            Atleast those kids have a job and some food to eat. without those "jobs" they would be begging in the street, sleeping on empty stomach, being used/abused by random homeowner who have them as servants. I know its bad but that's the reality. those 3rd word countries don't have government help program like west does

              You mean as opposed to working 15 hours per day, sleeping on empty stomachs and being abused by factory supervisors?

                What impresses me most about this person. Is that he has 6 children. I wonder if they are all from one wife or two wives. He doesn't even look at old. Amazing

                      This a great informative and helpful thread, I recommend the moderators sticky it :up: (if that's the correct UF term)
                      He who loses money, loses much.

                      He who loses a friend, loses more.

                      He who loses faith, loses ALL.

                              Its so easy to see other peoples flaws and accumulation instead of our own. Recently I had 4 families migrate to USA. We got them all apartment and got them settled. Its been 3 months and one uncles house is already packed of things. I understand they are all settling their family in new country and new house but they already starting off with too much junk.

                              And then we have desi women and their unlimited supply of pots/pan. Obviously I don't cook enough and don't see a need for more than 5 pots/pan because there is no way I am cooking more than 3 items per day. but everyone house I go to has stacks of pots. some so old that they don't have handles.

                              I have clutter of souvenirs. I love traveling and I always want to bring something back as memory but most place have the same old magnets and mugs and key chains. I tell myself I won't pick those up and only will buy unique things but I can't resist when I think I might never come back to this area again". Now I have big collection and no showcase to display them :(
