So this post may seem a bit out of place amongst all the bitching but if you think I'm real worried about my rep you probably just got here.

If you are a lazy-ass but have at least a marginal sense of humanity and would like to donate to the disaster relief efforts in Haiti you can text 'Haiti' to 90999. Ten bucks will be donated to the Red Cross and charged to your phone bill for each text. It's totally legit; you can read about it at the bottom of this article which also has info on other charitable organizations. Ten dollars might not seem like much but they've already raised like five mill this way so it really does add up.

I even donated and I don't ever do anything for anyone else because I am selfish but they have just made it too easy on us assholes. You even get to feel a little good about yourself because there's no such thing as true altruism (except maybe under some extreme circumstances) but that's really a discussion for another time.

Thanks to modern technology you basically have no excuse for not doing something.
