      it's just the little things that blow my mind every day that many people don't even acknowledge the presence of.
       
      Today I went to Wendy's and bought their 4 for $4 deal which get's you a burger, 4pc chicken nuggets, fries, and a drink, all for a meal that costs under $5 (Michigan just had to steal it's 24 cents from me). Many other fast food places have even better deals than that. You can go to Taco bell and get a shredded chicken quesadilla for only $1, or Arby's and get two sliders for $3. Mcdonalds often runs coupons on their mobile app for BOGO deals on their sausage and egg meals for around $3.
       
      Now is the food healthy? Of course not. But you don't go to a fast food restaurant to eat healthy. You go to to grab something fast to cover up the pain from hunger.
       
      Now let's go back about 100 years to when my grandpa was born. Did any form of not only fast but cheap food exist back then? Hell no! Many of these folks were still farming, and good, fast, and cheap food wasn't even on peoples minds then. Back then people were concerned Mostly with just having food at all (especially during the great depression).. But these days in 2019 on the other hand, I can walk into a restaurant and order an entire meal that multiple humans have to prepare, have the food ready for me within minutes. and get something filling for less time and money than it takes me to write this post. Yes nobody seems to think that is just incredible?
       
      Same with grocery stores. I can walk into Walmart or a whole foods and have a dazzling selection of cuisine from all over the world for prices in the single digits, when just 200 years ago trading for spices with India was all the rage and only reserved for the upper middle class and very rich. Meanwhile today not only do I have access to the same spices they do, but also all sorts of fruits and vegetables i've never even heard of. Did anyone know that dragonfruit is actually a thing? Oh, and I can buy it on sale from kroger for $6.
       
      If we compare out lives to people from 200 years ago, we are all living like kings. Even the very poorest among us in the US have access to almost unlimited food of every kind, free education (in the form of grade school) and in many cases subsidized housing and childcare. Many lower income families also are eligible for health care under the ACA. If we go back 100 years, some of these entitlement programs would appear to be straight out of a Utopian fiction novel in comparison to where they came from.
       
      In the past 30 years, we have lifted over a billion people across the world out of extreme poverty. Yet everyone seems to think this is the work of governments rather than markets finding more efficient ways to organize resources:
       
      https://qz.com/798481/over-a-billion-people-have-been-lifted-out-of-poverty-since-1990-but-the-next-billion-will-be-harder/
       
      sometimes it's nice to be thankful for what we have, and look back on where we came from instead of being jealous of those who have more. Because even compared to 200 years ago, everyone on this forum is a king. You have more access to wealth creating tools than anyone in the history of mankind in the form of the internet. Use it well.

      How you know a company outsources customer support to countries like India:
       
      Take a look at their wording choice and grammar.
       
      Literally every time I've seen a customer support agent use the world "surely" in a sentence without a question mark in the question it's outsourced customer support.

      Also: Yes I'm talking to outsourced eBay customer support rn.
