Here's[^] a startling chart (from here). There are more people on food stamps in the US than the entire population of Argentina.

Or, from this page[^]: 15 million children die of hunger each year.

In this age of iPads, gigabit Internet access, YouTube, Facebook, etc., still 50% of the world lives in poverty. WTF.
