Hungry? Check Out My New Phone

Every year, almost 9 million people die from hunger. That's 24,000 deaths a day, or one life unnecessarily lost every 3.6 seconds.
About 48 million tons of food are thrown away in the United States each year.
About ¼ of the world population that goes hungry and about 1/3 of the food on the planet being wasted. Someone is not doing their math, there seems to be plenty of food to go around.

Will history actually remember our times as we view them now, see all of the sports stars, movies stars and or entertainers as the gods that we revere them to be. Will they see the technological advancements in such things as horsepower and phones that can play music, or will they remember us as the society that let 24,000 people per day starve to death because they were too poor to eat, as the people that wasted tonnes of food while this happened? Will they see how people's greed has tried to stymie technology such as P2P file sharing thanks to the RIAA and such.
