One of the things I really can't stand is those commercials with the pictures of sad children where the narrator talks about how this child is going to die of starvation, and you can feed them for only 50 cents per day. If they can really feed the children for just 50 cents per day and this child is really dying, why are they just standing there and filming their misery?! Why can't the cameraman reach into his or her own pocket and get out that just 50 cents? Or go buy them some food. But no, according to the commercial this child will die unless you send the organization your money. It's like Smokey the Bear saying "Only you can prevent forest fires" only it's ridiculous people saying "Only you can save this child from starvation, not me, the person getting paid a ton of money to make this commercial, only you." What kind of hoorible people must they find to make these commercials?! I can imagine the job description: must be able to work a camera, must be able to tug at people's heartstrings, must be willing to watch a child die of starvation and not do a thing to prevent it.
That's just something that annoys me, that they act like these children are definitely going to starve to death because nobody will help them. And yet they're there filming the kids and they would have to be completely heartless not to at least share their lunch with the kids.
