Magic trick: homeless man's coffee turns into coins

Now give me those coins back, that was just part of the trick.

But seriously, isn't there something pathetic about people going out of their way to help a random homeless person on the street, patting themselves on the back while videotaping for all the world to see what a great person they are? Maybe we wouldn't be so bitter if we hadn't seen type of stunt before, but we get the sense that these people are more into it to feeling good about themselves and having others look at them as a hero than helping the homeless. You want to help the needy? Good, go for it. But don't videotape it, put it online, and act like your God's gift to the world. Involving them in your fake display of magical ability just degrades them even further.
