LOL, data has been availiable for EVERY year, only reason they chose 1995 was because it was a good year and it STILL didn't even come close to other nations per GDP.

Not even in the best of all years does it compare, but if you are going per sheer numbers, the rest of the nations with anywhere close to the same amount of population are sheitholes that can hardly sustain their own infrastructure.

Now if you'd take the EU, which the US debators are fond of doing SOMETIMES when it suits them, you're far far behind, if you take individual nations per GDP you're far far behind, if you compare yourself to Nigeria, you're ok.

This says USA was number 1 in 2011. Mind you this is an index of some sort that takes helping strangers and volunteer time into account.

at the very least, you have something to quote now to extend the shower of attention you require on the daily.
Thank you for introducing me to a new word.
Up until this point I was just saying "mouthy douche".

See? You got nothing. Theres nothing intelligent or helpful for you to say. Its physically impossible for you.
You've said that 200 times and it never means anything. You are a child, and not a particularly intelligent child either. You cant even come up with a decent or original insult.
I'd pity you, but have already met so many "adults" of your kind I just dont care any more.

I am not sure what kind of response you'd ever respect from an adult when you are a perpetual kid.

You are attacking someone that was not looking for any personal gain, but you want to feel that they were since your life is so miserable.

I do understand you meet these same 'adults' everyday, and simply don't get you have not grown up.

BTW they probably are all getting laid regularly.

But, hey...you win! you fucking straight ballah!.

Here's our good deed for the day.



It was sitting out in the road waiting to get run over. So we blocked traffic and prodded it off the road using a stick. I've never seen a gila monster so completely pissed off before. It was puffing and hissing and looking to make something (us preferably I suppose) dead. We've escorted them off roadways before but it has always been a matter of blocking traffic long enough for them to finish crossing. This is the first time we had to poke at one. It is still puffed up in the picture.

I stop for turtles and snakes down here.

My god, you're the "I like turtles" kid.

It all suddenly makes so much sense.

Oh, and I give more and volunteer more that you could ever hope too. But it's cool. I understand your constant need to hope you're better than everyone else.

Does that watch have the ego-massage option, where it tells you how cool you are when you push a button? I understand they can deactivate the douche-bag alarm. That'll probably be useful if you intend to wear it.

I donated my entire income to charity. Then I went out and stole 10% more and gave that to charity. Then I moved to Spideyville and voted to confiscate HIS MONEY and gave that to charity. Do I win?

More than likely...I am also not the 'I like turtles' kid, but it's pretty senseless to let anything be killed when you can stop it.

details would help, that is interesting, but I am thinking your view of what a donation is may be skewed since you did not qualify your statement.
