Yes, Nigerians struggle with floods or infant mortality. But these same Nigerians also deal with mundane and seemingly luxurious hassles. Connectivity issues on your BlackBerry, cost of car repair, how to sync your iPad, what brand of noodles to buy: Third World problems. All the silly stuff of life doesn't disappear just because you're black and live in a poorer country. People in the richer nations need a more robust sense of the lives being lived in the darker nations. Here's a First World problem: the inability to see that others are as fully complex and as keen on technology and pleasure as you are."

@Ashlar: So, all inhabitants of the so called Third World are black, have cars that need repair and use blackberries while there are no floods and hurricanes in the other two worlds? People in the internet nations need a more robust sense of the lives being lived in the more real nations.
