Faria, "first world problems" is a colloquialism for trivial problems that wouldn't even exist anywhere except in the first world. So you can take your xenophobia elsewhere.

Yes, that would still make you xenophobic, just not of people from "First World" nations apparently, which is not much of an improvement.

Also, as you were asked, please leave the comments about immigrants at the door. This is supposed to be a lighthearted thread.

I for one I'm glad he doesn't hate on Swedish or Canadian immigrants. That's a relief.

I think that's fairly common for one foot to be slightly smaller than the other. But on a related note why is it so hard to find footwear that fits?

I can be anywhere from an 8-10 shoe size. I miss the half size and widths that you used to get many moons ago.

The exact same problem occurs with bras.

So, First World Problem: Bras don't work as shoes.

I forgot to drink my energy drink. Now it's lost all it's bubbles.

Every time I open this thread I read that as 'applesauce'. And I keep wanting applesauce.

You should stop by! I bought some apples this weekend and I'm pretty good at making a simple applesauce.
