  1. http://t.co/dv1NvW83JR They've found the culprits behind the Charlie Hebdo attack (
  2. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30478321 Worrying news. And the worst is that it were thousands, not just hundreds.
  3. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35730041 Another reminder that the IOC dodged a very deadly bullet back in 2013.
  4. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/06/pope-slovakia-referendum_n_6630876.html I've lost all my respect to Pope Francis now. I guess I was naive to expect that stupid bunch of senile old men stuck in the middle ages would ever be tolerant towards other sexualities.

      Well, one thing is being tolerant with homosexuality and other very different is accepting gay marriage.

      Anyway, I don't care about the pope's opinion in anything. He can say whatever he wants for all I care.

      From the beginning the media either twisted or mis-translated everything the man said. He is a bit more liberal, but he was never going to be what the media wanted or made him out to be. The honeymoon s over.

  5. I waited 5 years only for this massive dissapointment. It actually made me feel depressed. Here's hoping Paris 2024 learned from this mess. I think COVID was an excuse for a couple of things, but it doesn't justify the disjointed, uninspired show from tonight, specially from a country which loves to presume of being innovative and tech savvy. Japan seems to be cursed to always do crappy sport ceremonies.

  6. **** Football. That is all.

  7. 100 years ago, a hideous act against the basic rights of human beings was perpetrated against the Armenian population, which would later inspire Hitler to commit his own Genocide. You're not alone, Hayastan. The people of the world stands with you.

      we're getting to 100 years of so many horrors of the 20th century...

      Indeed. The Armenian genocide was the first of many others (Jewish, Bangla, Bosnia, etc.). I dream for a day people stop hating each other for their ethnicity and understand we were all born the same.

  8. A student in my university was found stabbed to death yesterday inside a classroom. Crime rate in our country is rocketing and the Castro lackeys who govern us won't do anything about it.

  9. A synagogue got attacked in Jerusalem, killing 4. *sigh* and here we go again

      Gotta get ourselves on the front of the news cycle every three months don't we Israel?

      Same would be said of Palestine. :/

      Oh yeah, swings and roundabouts!

  10. Absolute victory by PP. Mariano Rajoy to become the next president of Spain.

    1. Faster

      Faster

      president of the government, not Spain. Spain is a kingdom.

  11. And now King Albert of Belgium abdicates. This surely has been the Year of Abdications (Netherlands, Qatar, and now Belgium)

      Don't forget the Vatican!

  12. And there goes Crimea. Doesn't this just remind you of when Hitler absorbed Austria?. We all know what followed, sadly....

      Yep, good all 'merica. When the world needs and wants us our leader is too big of a wuss to do anything.

      Humanity doesn't need America for the "survival" of the human species

  13. Are we living now in an era where its cool to hate the Olympics? I want to give a round of applause to Sochi and the infamous list of demands to Oslo by Bach. You guys made this possible. Way to go, idiots.

      I think that if we have a round of successful, financially stable games in 2024/2026 to show contrast to what we've seen up to today, there will be a boost of confidence in bidding. It all still depends on how the Asian Trio handle the next eight years...

      I think Sochi just highlighted what many of us ignored. That the Olympics are extremely expensive and an unnecessary expense. I'm not going to say that the world is changing and we are facing bigger problems then we did during the cold war etc but following Sochi nations and it's citizens are saying "do we want to spend $15 billion on a 2 week event or do we care about healthcare and the important issues facing the world.

  14. At least 18 dead people in a Turkish town at Syria's border. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-22494128

      I think Turkey must take a decisive step to end the carnage in Syria. This has gone too far.

  15. BREAKING NEWS: Nelson Mandela critically ill on hospital...:(

  16. Can anyone tell me what happened to the embedded videos? What's the code to put one in a post again? Thank you

  17. Congratulations for Chelsea for getting the Champions League for their first time. They deserve it.

  18. Congratulations Serbia on winning the U-20 World Cup.

  19. Congratulations to Mexico for getting the Football gold medal! :)

  20. Congratulations Tokyo. The Olympics are in safe and experienced hands.

  21. Congratulations, Portugal! Also thank you France for this Euro. It's been fun.

  22. Dear god the earthquake in Nepal. I pray for all the victims of this tragedy.

  23. Definitely the cuban community in America is not going to be happy at all with this

    1. Alexjc

      They never are...If you go right back to the 1950s, most are decendants of Batista's equally dodgy reigeme.

      I read though that the younger generations are more liberal and open to agreements with Cuban government.

      I anticipate an angry salsa from Gloria Estefan in the near future...

  24. Denmark won a very predictable ESC. See you in Copenhagen 2014.

      VERY predictable result, I was hoping for Malta of ItaƱy to win.
