Dear World in general,

I do know that the term "third world country" is considered correct in some parts of the world. I do know that I see it being used all the time. But have you ever considered that it is possibly the rudest, most inconsiderate thing you can say about another country? Probably not.  My point is, if you're going to talk about a poor Asian/Middle Eastern/South American/etc country, please call us a "developing nation". That's the term I  was taught and it's a term I've come to appreciate. Maybe in time, other people will consider it too.

Thank you for your time.

    With talk of Civil War and Ant-Man, maybe the MCU will destroy itself in a blaze of glory. One can hope.

    You know you have a good job when you spend hours talking to your boss about Lord of the Rings. I have a good job. Just wished it paid more though.
