    I'm not opposed to some good marble league racing, but I think e-sports would have been the obvious answer to this problem.

    In 1988 the Winter Olympics were held in the city I lived in. I decided to hold my own Olympics with gumballs. I was an only child so I ran all the events myself. I wrote down all the results. Almost two decades later I was going through some stuff I had stored away and found all the results from my Gumball Olympics. Problem is...I cannot for the life of me remember what the events were!

    3:40 I know you have a time limit, but the stadium isn't where the job loses stop- remember they are sold to cities as the powerhouse that will revitalize whole neighborhoods. Who then build up all the shops and eateries that get the overflow. Then there is the supply network for all of this. The people in local government who manage it. It really is a huge job killer. I hate sports. But this is no Yay Team! moment.

    At some point I'd love it if John doubled back to the inherent racism of a college football coach insisting that unpaid players (many of which are POC) be made to play so that they could funnel revenue to the state. There have been several colleges have threatened their scholarship players (who tend to be mostly people of color) with a revocation of their scholarship if they refuse to play.

    that rly hurt Charlie
    i dont remember why but i recall having a talk with someone i know about blankets and germ warfare a few yrs back.
    and the only reason i remember is because they chose to lie to me about this and claim it didn't happen
    now why would anyone claim such a thing unless the intent is to harm me? ( i should point out these people include all my "friends" and family) not about this but things equally stupid, simply questioning the narrative is treated as crazy and demonizing me for no reason. -good team building guys
    btw i love having a retarded byrd that hates me but insists on doing the laundry and touching everything
    but dont dare tell her what to do
    fast forward to current year -
    people are trying to kick me outta my house with no money for no reason claiming im a parasite. hmmmmm
    why i hate "these" people so much

    fight Island is good. uf-sea is creative. you wouldn't call "fight club" fight house or fight shack. fight island needs more dynamics than an octagon. covid-19 is a scare tactic bioweapon. it only affects those with a bad immune system, as it is designed to get rid of the weak. eugenics at work, bioengineered in a lab with patents.

    the covid-19 was invented in part by china, Bill gates, George Soros and more. this is a test. this is to control the mass of the populations. what will people sacrifice for freedom. obviously, everything for most. this is scary. they don't have to prove deaths from covid-19, medical facilities get paid 18,000+ per victim without proof. I am not saying its not real, its just no worse than the average flu. if you trade freedom for security, you deserve none.

    I would love if you could talk about BLM and how it has influenced us worldwide to fight against our own racism, so that the USA know that their not alone, but also that Europe may act fancy, but truly is a place of entitled motherfuckers.
    I'm half english and half Ivorian, and my dad is named John. So for no reason, I'm claiming that you owe me this (UK style baby!!). Do this, or you won't be able to eat french pâtisseries again.

    Я не видел людей уже несколько лет.
    Думал, после войны их нигде уже нет.
    Но сегодняшним утром... Я нашёл след!
    В мире мало воды, и её нельзя пить,
    Заражённая плоть всюду брошена гнить.
    Вам нужна катастрофа, чтоб оценить:
    Что есть мусор, а где Свет Жизни?!
    Это любовь уносит меня!
    Посмотри, она всюду!
    Эта любовь открыла тебя
    Для меня - и быть чуду!
    Помню: огненный шторм! Непроглядная тьма!
    Восемь месяцев ночь! И 3 года зима!
    Это люди сошли из-за денег с ума!
    Всё богатство людей - это грязь и гнильё!
    Так пускай мертвецы охраняют своё!
    Для меня же бесценно - встретить её,
    Эту новую жизнь вне смерти!
    Это любовь уносит меня!
    Посмотри, она всюду!
    Эта любовь открыла тебя
    Для меня - и быть чуду!
    Ты наверху ждёшь меня...
    Это как новая жизнь вне смерти!
