EW ^

Posted on 02/12/2013 5:06:01 PM PST by SMGFan

Matt Damon will not be using a toilet until the entire world has access to clean water.

Damon, co-founder of water.org, a site dedicated to raising awareness and funding for clean water throughout the world, staged a press conference today. He announced that he will not be going to the bathroom until sanitation was available to everyone to a room full of “journalists” with familiar faces like YouTube star ShayCarl and Winston from New Girl (Lamorne Morris).

I think he should go on a “no drinking water or any other liquids” strike for at least a week...

This reminds me of one Sheryl "Single Sheet" Crowe.

If he is whining about clean water, maybe he should go on a drinking water strike....

I’d give him a week or two...

Matt Damon goes on strike to raise awareness for clean water Why not make another Bourne movie (I promise to buy a ticket) and donate 100% of your salary to clean water initiatives?

Not going to the bathroom? So, where will he go? He’s got enough money to hire someone to come pick up his crap everyday and let them go flush it. At least he can say he’s not wasting water.

Lack of clean water kills a lot of people. Pretty hard to take this guy seriously as he jets around the world.

If he flew commercial and donated the savings to solving the problem he’s have a far greater impact.

I read an article in the WSJ about a parasite that they have been trying to wipe out with the clean water program in India and North Africa and they are almost there. There were just 5 hundred and some cases this past year.

Now, let me tell you about this parasite. The parasite is spread through the water flea that lives in the water supply in India and North Africa. People drink it and the female burrows through the intestine and lays her eggs. The pupa stage worm works its way down the leg of the host and comes out the foot or the ankle and causes a burning pain which causes people to put their foot in water to cool the pain and the cycle continues. The only way to get rid of the parasite is to wind the worm, inch by inch around a stick or pencil, a little at a time until you get the whole thing pulled out.

That’s how they get these movie stars worked up, stories like that.

All window dressing. Posturing BS to make it seem like he actually gives a millisecond of flatulence about clean water. At $4K per well, how many wells would just ONE of his million$ pay for? 250. Hey Matt! Pony up or SHUT UP!

P.S. As someone who ACTUALLY $UPPORT$ WELL DRILLING in villages in Africa through James Robison’s LIFE organization, I think I’m in a position to say what I just said to Damon in previous reply.

Reminds me of the movie THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING when all the villagers cry and complain about the tribe living above them peeing in the stream when the people in the lower tribe go out to get drinking water.

We could give the entire world clean water for probably one tenth what the world spends on global warming every year.

But then again, the technology, and the materials to make clean water are not rocket science. Third world countries have enough access to knowledge, and they have unlimited practically free work forces, so why is it our responsibility to give it to them in the first place?

It's worse that you think. They also expect *you* to maintain the equipment...

Same thing happens in the US. For example, about twenty years ago, the Army Corps of Engineers were brought in to replace the DC public schools heating plants to the tune of $10M. A decade later, they were failing again from the lack of maintenance.

A relative of mine had a son who, when he was young, was severely hurt by his mother leaving. When she had him every second week-end, among other things, she would call the boy "stupid", to his face. His reaction was to try to remain a 'little boy'; a small ten-year old acting like a four year-old. Among the symptoms were his suffering from 'obstipation' (obstinent constipation): for lack of a better way to describe it, he was 'self' constipated, refusing to go when he needed to. BTW, his name was not Matt Dillon, but it sounds similar!

His father would have to take out the Vaseline every so often and 'prime the pump', so to speak, so that no matter how hard the boy tried to hold it in, he would fail. Eventually, the boy grew out of this. Let's hope Matt does, too! If not, perhaps...

or

I guess it all Depends.
