Why You Should Feel Happy During Your Holidays.

If you compare the world with a village of 100 people, the village would look like this. 1- 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 Noth Americans, 8 Africans. 2- 52 women, 48 men 3- 70 colored people, 30 white, 4- 30 Christians, 70 non Christians 5- 89 heterosexuals, 11 homosexuals. 7- Six persons would own 59% of the wealth. 8- Six would be US citizens. 9- 80 would be without shelter. 10- 70 would be analphabets. 11- 50 would be dependent of somebody else. 12- One would be about to die, and two about to be born. 13- One only would have a diploma, and one would have a computer.

If you wake up this morning without being ill you are happier than 1 million people who are going to die in the next days. If you never suffered because of war or hunger or complete loneliness, you are happier than 500 million people. If you can go to a place of cult without being obliged to, or taking the risk of being arrested or killed, you are luckier than 3 milliard people in the world. If you have food in your fridge, have clothing, have a permanent roof, you are richer than 75% of the worldwide population. If you have a little bit of money in a box, a bank account, you belong to the 8% richer people in the world. And if you read this, you have a computer…and probably own at least one motorcycle. Feel happy during your holidays.

    The fact we can react to this item says enough. Can you imagine us not having a computer and internet………

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Cyril and all of you there across the big ocean. May 2008 be a good one for you and your families.

    Let me see, of the six people who own 59% of the wealth, only one could have a diploma and/or one a computer???? My question is where did you come up with these facts, they really do not compute. It did serve a purpose, to amuse. LOL

  11. 11 Cyril Dec 24th, 2007 at 5:15 pm

    Yes, they compute because a lot of rich people overseas (and some here) inherited wealth without having a diploma or a computer. Go to travel in the Persian Gulf, Russia, some countries of South America for example.

    Cyril is right. Most of the wealth in the world is inherited. Especially abroad. It doesn’t mean that the recipient has a diploma.
