So in english class we have to write a research paper about a problem in the world today and what we can do to help fix it. Thing is, you're supposed to pick a problem that you feel strongly about, and so far all the ideas i've had/people have gave me i wasn't too crazy about doing the report on, and i want to at least pick something that i'm remotely interested in.

so, pit, what are some problems in the world that i can do this on? throw me some suggestions, shouldn't be too hard seeing as how theres no shortage of problems these days.

people abusing our money that live on welfare?

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

Teachers giving their students pointless tasks knowing full well they're going to go ask someone else to do it for them but they carry on anyway because they know that's how it is ... that's how it will always be ...

Can you stretch that out for a page there sparky?

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Go with welfare.

It takes money from people who choose to work.

Encourages people not to work.

Causes problems with peoples income.

Isn't something that blue collar workers want to deal with.

Is a socialist idea

Should only be given to people with disabilities that disable their working abilities.

these wellfare ideas are retarded. Most people getting govt. assistance in the US work a job (or multiple jobs) that just cut them off short of 40 hours a week, pay no benifits, and pay minimum wage. Our welfare system is set up to help these people and encourage work, not discourage it.

ANyway, you really should write about the decline of American education, and cite your paper assignement as an example. Then again, you're a student asking other people to do your homework, so what the hell are you going to to help fix the problem?

Americanised spelling, that is the single biggest problem with the World today. We'll all be talking gaga soon if it carries on spreading across the internet.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Glad you agree, it's nice to see an American who isn't completely up themself and willing to defend the culture they've stolen from so many people and then called their own ...

The main problem in the world is how our governments dictates -ahem- I mean has laws, that tell us what we can and what we cannot do with our own bodies, i.e. drugs. They make drugs such as weed, shrooms etc illegal, both of which do not kill...and yet they legalise tobacco and alcohol, both of which are more chemically addictive and dangerous to our health. Then comes the actual Moral side of it...since when did we no longer have control over our own bodies and have a choice what to do with it? We are allowed to offer our bodies for medical studies...yet not allowed to indulge in our own personal recreational studies, because the government says so. And since when did they decide that they knew what was best for out own bodies as well?

While I agree that it's not the government's responsibility...I seriously don't think it's the main problem anywhere other than your parent's basement.

How about 'chavs/wannabe gangsters' and their stab u if u look at them attitude.

How about the benefit cheats and scroungers etc. living in the uk. (If they have a genuine reason for not working, fine, but the taxpayers are virtually handing each of these scrubs a flatscreen tv. They live better than i do).

(1) I definately don't view it as a major problem, most of them are nicer than the 'true brits' that you see on Jeremy Kyle and are alot better for the country.

(2) Kinda backs up my first point that these are the ones causing more problems than immigrants.

(3) See point 2.
