    is it still a secret that the house is built on a pile of garbage? I was under the impression that the cat was out of the bag.

    How so? Does donating blood usually result in more of the same? Does donating free time to tutor kids result in more of the same? Does giving school supplies/money to kids who can't afford them result in more of the same? What exactly are you basing this notion that giving something for nothing 'usually' results in more of the same? I'm interested in your methodology. Or are you saying that charity usually results in more of the same? Either way I'm still interested in how you came to this conclusion that being charitable always results in more of the same.

    This smug hatred of charity is just a way for assholes to rationalize their own selfishness.

    I really wonder how 'usually' charity results in more of the same when millions of people are 'saved' in one way or another every year because of it. From kids who get free school supplies or money to buy them to people who get organs from other who are selfless enough to allow others to make use of them. Seriously it's a funny concept because saying or somehow suggesting that charity and doing things to feel good usually results in more of the same suggests that this happens more often then not. I really want to see the methodology used to arrive at such a conclusion.

    I'm wondering how Habitat for Humanity manages to avoid all the building codes that must be followed when building a house.

    If these buildings are falling apart it must be from neglect.

    I wonder if these places falling apart is a result of poor construction or poor maintenence and upkeep.


    face it, people who are given something tend not to take care of it as thier own.... some poor people especially choose not to take care of thier crap.



    And no i would not want a house built by mat damon.

    I would take one built by Harrison Ford, though. He was a carpenter before he struck it big. Got the part of Han Solo while doing carpentry for George Lucas actually.

    Yeah, he is one of my favorite actors. I blame Star Wars.
