Have you guys ever heard of those first world problem jokes? Like "My parents are the worst. They didn't buy me the new iPhone 4S and now I'm stuck with just a lame iPhone 4."

Some people sure take things for granted.

... So, can we not all just chip in and pay for these people's education, so then they won't
have to work in those god awful factorise.. and bring back the stars - everyone is happy then, aren't they?

This is one of the reasons why I don't like to complain much.

At least he has a roof over his head and someone who very well might kill him someday. I've agreed with everything you've said so far, but please don't expect me to agree that Sen has no right to complain about his family life, because he has a roof over his head. Kai downplays it because his sister is dying, but everyone has a sad story. Sen is one of those kids who genuinely have a right to angst about theirs. That said, I agree that he should concentrate on raising his grades so he can leave his home and do something constructive with his life. And what gives Kai or Dickson the right to mess with people who want to believe things can change?
Knites Featured By Owner May 15, 2012
I think you misunderstood. The point is not that Sen has no right to complain about his abusive stepmom, but his goal of bringing stars back into the sky meant shutting down the factories that provides an income to the poor. It's his dream vs other's people's lively hood.

Oh no. Oh god oh no. So... what does it mean? We get rid of the factories? Or no? Are they building the future, or destroying it?
TheFinalAlice Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2012
I go to school with some kids like that. And then people grow these stereotypes about my school, my town, my county, like we're heartless wolves who are spoiled shells. It hurts. I understand why people dislike spoiled people, but what good is making gross generalities and considering other people to be naturally evil?
oblique-mirage Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
Another thing about those people though, is when they hear about these kinds of problems in the world, they feign pity and sadness, while subconsciously they're just apathetic because it doesn't concern them. One of the worse things is that some people even outwardly display their disgust and blame the workers who are doing this to themselves, spitting their racial slurs, influencing other people to believe them. That's like attacking the mailman for delivering letters from the IRS rather than facing the real problem. =.= Apathy, ignorance and propaganda is so terrible.

Ugh, I hate when kids my age complain about what they don't have. :/ I'm 15, and all I hear from kids my own age is, exactly as you said, "I hate my parents! They're so stupid! They wouldn't get me the new WHITE iphone so I'm stuck with a stupid black one!" "My parents won't let me go to the party, they won't stop whining about how I never spend time with them! Now I have to have stupid family night." It's really dumb. :( /I/ don't have an iPhone but I'm not complaining. :) I'm just happy to have a phone at all. I'm perfectly happy with what I have.
TheArtisticGenius Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Dat's right. I hate to hear kids at school going all "Oh, sorry I can't come to your party, my parents are taking me on a stupid vacation"...I mean, it's a vacation! And the majority of people can't pay for a good vacation anyways!!

I'm completely happy that I'm healthy and alive, unlike some unfortunate people. I just hope the people who complain all the time realize that what they have is priceless to poor families and kids who are forced into work.
WhiteRose53 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012   General Artist
Exactly! My vacations usually consist of driving 6 hours to "the-middle-of-nowhere-Texas" to visit my cousins. And then there are the people who complain about "having" to go to another state, or even out of the country. -.-

I agree with you. I'm lucky enough to have a good home, a good family, and a dad who gets a good income (my mom stays at home with my baby sister). I can get a good education, and I have enough food to eat. I see no reason to complain. I may not have an iPhone/iPad/whatever, or an expensive TV in my room, etc., but I'm perfectly happy with my life. I wouldn't change a thing.

At Christmas time ESPECIALLY I always hear about people receiving iPods/iPhones/WHATEVER upon piles of other stuff. I see these people waste their lives with drugs, alcohol and smoking. They all complain about these things that I swear are the most idiotic things I've heard. I know sometimes you don't know the situation behind them and why they do that, but honestly it annoys me so much when people complain about how their life "sucks". I usually KNOW from there that they are contained in a little bubble which makes them oblivious to the world.

This comic for one really made me see how lucky I am to have even have education, food, water and a place to stay for the night. When people complain about how hard their lives are on the simplest things, I wonder and fear what will happen to us in the next 30 years.

Reminds me of Closer's lyrics..... "So have you forgotten what you've learned, that happiness you once said you've earned? Well maybe you're just too blessed to see the things that are right before your eyes: that you have been born onto this Earth, and that you've been breathing since that birth. You just seem to overlook the fact that these are really both miracles..." So touching...

Yep, I heard of that joke already. It sickens me how people complain about not getting an iPhone...I never had an MP3 player thing in my life. ._. Just a desktop computer. I don't have a laptop either. We have an iPad, but that was pretty recent. I see 3-year-olds having iPads while my friend only has her Gameboy...and she doesn't complain. The next generation kids would've, I bet.

*sigh* Technology is showing its darker side in our world, indeed.

*ahem* Back on the comic--I'm really glad that you're updating so quickly (didn't expect it, actually). ;3; It's not like Sen is putting his own hope above others, is he? It seems like he doesn't know the situation of the poor people though. ;w;
Nova-Blaze Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My sister always remind me about this. I love my sister. She live in a time where children are still cared by hurting. In my time, hurting is against the law. I'm just glad :3 One more thing? PFFT~ Seriously? You complain about a iphone that has the same name in it xD

Oh first world problems....sometimes I just have to say that when I notice someone saying those exact words, Yuumei...there's way too many of them at my school that say that. Bothers me a lot...>.<
Beautiful work as always, I hope that maybe this can make people think about things a bit more.

I have heard many complaining about their parents. Take my step-sister for example. She has these temper issues but she's a sophomore in high school so she should already know the right times to take in a deep breath and calm down before lashing out at other people. And yet, she complains to her mother telling her that she ordered the wrong pair of Ugg boots for her, or that the new jeans that are in style aren't her size. Then she comes into the room, opens her laptop and starts complaining outloud and via her facebook that her mother is always picking on her and that she hates her mom and blah, blah, blah.
I despise times like these. She really just takes it for granted for the fact that she has food, has a roof over her head, has an education, money, and clothes to wear. She especially takes her own mother for granted. This just really pisses me off.
Just stop complaining and do something more productive such as helping your own mom clean and take advantage of that free education you have for yourself.

A few years ago, I thought that I had it bad. But I've come to realize that overall my life has been comfortable and filled with opportunities. How could I complain?

I want to give back. I HAVE to give back.
Flemmliplush Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012
Sometimes I really wish I didn't have all this. I am at college, with a laptop, and other crap, but what do I do? Nothing. Those poor children are doing anything for a decent life. And I do nothing.
Worst part is that there's no way I can throw all of this away, because I'm selfish in many ways people can't see, and I have no clue how to help.

My first bed was the bottom drawer of the dresser. We struggled very hard. My dad worked 3 jobs and my mom 2 so I could go to a private highschool. Now, I own my own small bookshop and teach people about Nature Spirituality in our workshop space.

Thank you so much for this challenging comic so far. I may use it as a teaching tool.

I can't stand it when people have to live on the latest technology. Like when my dad tries to persuade me to get a smart phone when I am perfectly happy with a phone that texts and calls only.

I also can't stand it when people rub in your face how thankful one should be for all the great things you got when I already know it. (not saying anything negative about this page, just talking about what I feel) I am aware of how many people are stuck with troublesome environments and I love to help them in any way possible.
winged-reflection Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012
Oooh, Kai's pulling out the tricky questions again! XD
:iconkaitrollfaceplz: Well, Sen? How are you going to answer this one? Or have I finally trolled you?

Considering the content though, the situation really is terrible. Every time I remember that there are people way less fortunate than I am, it makes me feel sad. :'(
You may complain all you want, but there will always be someone who is worse off than you are.

Pfft I don't even HAVE a phone! :P
I, honestly, was thinking the other day how blessed I am to have an education, though it's tough, a kind family, though we fight, a home, though it isn't fancy or big, and pleanty of food, though I say there is nothing to eat.
It's a lot easier to take things for granted when your a kid, because you don't see what your parents put up with the economy and their jobs.

Whenever I get a new game or toy which may cos $20 I feel like waiting 3 months or so, so I could get something else but that don't mean that's true, if I try I could get more but I don't test that often. I'm happy with what I got, even if I'm poor.
aegis-of-justice Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I think people are missing the point. Kai isn't putting down Sen by saying his problems aren't as worthwhile as the children having to work in the factories. He is saying that if he wants to fight the factories, what about the people who depend on them? Does he have the right to trade their livelihoods for a bunch of stars? Plus the fact that Sen partially wants to bring back the stars to prove himself worthwhile in his family's eyes. It's not just the "your problem isn't a problem because there are other problems that are worse" game.

I'm a bit annoyed to see so many people complaining about other people complaining (and see, I'm doing it too). There's no point to telling stories about the kids at our schools if we don't judge ourselves as well. My putting someone else down for his or her frivolity won't change the fact that I am also a spoilt rich kid, even if I'm not quite so petty as to break down over an iPhone.

None of us really have a real understanding of what goes on in other people's lives, even if we can pretend that we are so much better than those around us.

My apologies for being rude; I was not sure quite how to put it.
