I shouldn't be sad because there are people that are sadder than me?

By that logic I shouldn't be happy either, because there are people happier than me

No, you should try yo improve what you have, rather than grieving over things you don't have. That way we'll have stories to tell and not become boring ***** . You need to be enjoyable to enjoy life. Boring people are bored like hell.

And no-one should ever die because someone is more dead than them?

I don't know what I'm talking about.

It's not about being happy/ sad. The guy with no legs wasn't sad; its about being thankful for what you have.
User avatar #30 to #28 - admiralen ONLINE (10/25/2013) [-]
so if you are only a head you should be happy cause there is a guy whos only a head but has lost one eye as well?

You should be happy that you can live without most of your vital organs.

you know, if you never feel down, you cant really appreciate it when you feel up

I never implied that you should be happy all the time, but I do agree with that 100%.

mfw someone tries to tell me to be happy with what I have at the moment. Just becasue I want more doesn't mean I'm not happy.
It's as if there's no joy in learning something new or succeeding in something.
#40 - dontknowmeatall (10/26/2013) [-]
So... you must feel happy any time you see someone with a disadvantage you don't have? Cuz he's a douche.

The moral of the story is that you shouldn't even attempt to improve your life if other people have it worse.

Is he happy that he only got his feet run over instead of ruining his best shoes or is he thinking about the pain in his feet because he doesn't have shoes?
User avatar #6 to #2 - robrt (10/25/2013) [-]
he is happy because his feet are big!
#12 to #10 - DangerToManifold (10/25/2013) [-]
i could make better shoes than that with those materials.
User avatar #19 to #12 - amegaara (10/25/2013) [-]
please do
#20 to #19 - DangerToManifold (10/25/2013) [-]
if he cut the bottle open he could wear the whole thing like a shoe and use the string/twine, whatever it is as a lace.

if he got enough bottles and string he could barter them for other things and feed himself.
User avatar #21 to #20 - amegaara (10/25/2013) [-]
>implying the plastic wont brush onto your feet and be irretating as hell
and you said i can make shoes that were better than his not describe

He's still stupid, but then again... I don't even know how to feel about you.
could =/= am going to
User avatar #76 to #42 - amegaara (10/26/2013) [-]
not a native speaker so enlighten me please.
User avatar #77 to #76 - OsamaBinLadenz (10/26/2013) [-]
Ah, okay. Well, I won't defend him, as he's still stupid, but the thing is he said he could, which means given the right material, there's a way for him to make a better pair of shoes.

I just think it seems irrational to go at him for not doing it, because he never said that he would and post results. Not everyone wants to go out and find or buy twine and water bottles that can fit your feet.
User avatar #78 to #77 - amegaara (10/26/2013) [-]
but the thing is.. its just two plastic bottles and a string thats why i said "please do as in please make one but i got you

Just because people have it worse than me, doesn't mean I'm not going to not be sad.
This doesn't make me feel good, this pisses me off, because thats retarded.

This isn't a poke at "Don't ever be happy or successful or want anything ever because remember that one kid that has cancer and you dont"

This is "don't be a ******* greedy asshole"

Be grateful for what you have, but that doesn't mean you can't aspire to improve your life.
#69 to #60 - ohayougozaimasu (10/26/2013) [-]
The message says otherwise.

If this was poking at greedy assholes, then why is it ending on a happy note with a guy who simply wanted shoes but now doesn't? How does that in any way convey "greed is bad?" unless if implied that acquiring shoes was a greedy, needless, and assholish thing to do?

We have one guy who wants shoes. He sees an amputee who has no feet. As a strict result, the man now is relaxed, careless. It can only be assumed that because the man saw a person who had something he didn't have, he was guilt-tripped into suspending his worry about having shoes. This situation is very similar to the analogy you asserted as not the correct interpretation of this comic.

Now, if the man indulged in slicing up and redecorating his feet because he thought they were ugly, and an amputee rolls by, only then would this comic have more justified moral value, because at least then exists a situation of a man being happy without feet and another who is negatively impacting himself due of a fervent desire to needlessly change through possession what he has or the situation he is in - greed, for short.

Oh **** !
I remember watching a video like this
A trampy kid had **** shoes, he saw some other rich kid on the bench with some sick as Jordans or w/e then he must've wished for his life or something then some magic **** happened. He got his life but he couldn't walk.

why would someone have kids if they know they can give them what they need?

Rape or poor education on the importance of contraception leading to accidental pregnancy, there can be many reasons. I myself was an accident and was quite poor as a child but I am glade my parents had me.

Holy **** you guys are a bunch of whiny bitches. The comic is telling you to ******* be happy with what you have, not to never show emotion or never strive for a better ******* situation.

Jesus Christ.
#70 to #54 - ohayougozaimasu (10/26/2013) [-]
The comic poorly presents that moral value. That's what we are "whining" about.

If you want to create a comic that sermonizes a virtue, at least do it in a sensible, thought out way.
