People like to say that no matter how bad off your life is, there is always someone worse off than you. I guess it's a source of comfort. It's nice to know that while the're removing a bone from your throat, the man in the next room has a four hundred-pound tumor in his groin.
But the idea that there is always someone worse off leads to the logical conclusion that somewhere in the world there is a person who is in worse shape than everybody else. Some guy who has almost 6 billion people doing better than he is.
But, in reality, as you get down to the bottom of the bad-shape pile, it becomes harder and harder to know who's doing worse. Is a blind, paralyzed, maniac really better off than a three-foot, paraplegic imbecile? Tough call.

I felt bad when the plasma TV I ordered didn't arrive on time, but then I laughed at a homeless man and it cheered me right up.
