    you can simply go to sleep and wake up a few hours later right? Of course that’s cheating the question. We want to be able to go back and redo those silly mistakes we made many years ago. who doesn’t wish they could go back and talk to their 15-year-old self? Tell them not to make the mistakes you did (or they will). Or perhaps you’d rather travel 500 years into the future and see those flying cars we were promised by the year 2000. Fortunately, time travel is theoretically possible.

    I have to agree with Haroon’s comment that buying supplies in Pakistan would be much cheaper than in US (or any other western country). The transportation costs of sending all this, esp. water, are going to be huge both for PIA and anyone domestically within Pakistan. Besides the economy of buying supplies locally, I wonder if the author has considered the flood-stricken demographic: these supplies would be given to some of the poorest and most illiterate Pakistan, How many of them do you think would be able to understand what Gatorade is? or determine if the food stuff is halal or not? Dont just assume that they will be able to read the food labels.
    I suggest donating to trusted international charities instead, they have resources, existing supply chains, and more importantly, disaster management experience.
