Well I think you should eat food rather then starve to death, maybe your body will adjust eventually.

She also should be careful about the shits she talks. I hate when people say and "now I'm in Africa" or "I'm going to Africa" as if Africa is a fucking country. OP If you are in Somalia, Uganda, Kenya or wherever the fuck you are, then say it, cos i bet if you were shopping in Paris you would say "I'm shopping in Paris" and not "I'm shopping in Europe" so why generalize when it comes to Africa? Just to make it look like Africa is this fucking huge jungle where you cant even find something decent to eat.? Yes there are still many poor and undeveloped places in Africa but yeah there are also so many beautiful and developed cities; sorry if I'm being rush but I really hate when people talk about Africa as if there is hunger, aids, lions, and a "Kony" in every corner. WTF???
It's not exactly trivial I see his point. Considering sub-Saharan africa has the largest population of AIDs in the world, and when people speak of Africa it's generally of their struggles( i.e starvation, water santitaion, rape in the congo, etc) it always seems the focal points. I have two friends from South Africa and they enjoy a beautiful beach house, good food, and good friends. Africa is a beautiful place where majestic wild life and people thrive. He may have come on strong, and the FML in question isn't insulting whatsoever, but he has a point about people's views in general. And seeing as he's from Cape Town its not terriby shocking it irked him.
Its about the same as people saying they're in America when actually there's no such place. There's United States of America or there's The Americas; its pretty cheeky to say "America" as though that's a place because it discounts everyone else in The Americas, like no one even counts except USA.
sounds just like Adelaide! but seriously,, you should leave, hey.
Well, you asked for a traveling job... But Not the one you had hoped for... Lol... Good luck op *Africa by toto starts playing*
#111-- That's the point of the joke... In many cases in everyday life (bumping into someone, dropping something, etc.) they are used interchangeably. At a sad event, like a funeral, or an event where you otherwise definitely don't want to take the blame, as here, it would be totally inappropriate to say "I apologize" because it would imply that you murdered the person... I would apologize and say I'm sorry for explaining the joke, but you started it.
