Free Rice Video

If you haven't gone to Free Rice yet, please do... Here's a video to explain the whole concept. I don't usually support the concept of handouts, but this rice is going to the poorest populations and if you can save one person, one child from starving with a little click of a mouse and a flexing of your vocabulary skills, why not?

well...
the concept of handouts is good if it is combined with the concept of work...

handouts alone is not good, except for the really helpless persons...

it is all about changing the reality...

Ah by the way... America is turning 14% of its crops into fuel... reducing the dependency on oil, ARABS oil

Yes, I'm all about teaching the man to fish rather than handing him a trout...!
I'm also all for the use of renewable resources for fuel, and I'm sure if the Middle East diversifies it's range of products and services, it'll survive. It was always unsafe to rely on one source of income anyway. The UAE is doing it pretty well by going into property, foreign investments, and tourism. I'm sure other ME countries can find their own non-oil related niches. I hope.
