    That's quite alright, I just like this song and generally want to use TISC to share what I like

    Which dictator, the new one, the one he kicked out or the one the previous one kicked out? Or the one who'll take over with a coup next year?

    I was mostly stunned by the inconsistency of the results with Jazzu. It's as if the voters said: "How dare you enter again?!"
     
    TISC being TISC, i guess.
     
    EDIT: Oh wait, the Weeknd entered after winning too. The outcome was not that disimlar, though.

    I used to take a look at it quite often on Eurosport, many years ago (at least 10-15 I think), but nowadays it just really can't keep me interested anymore even though Eurosport has tons and tons of it to watch  
     
    I think I stopped watching when I noticed that overtakes almost never happened. No idea if that's gotten better though.

    I watched it live in person many times, basically my grandpa used to race in his days and then stayed involved and got me into it (as a spectator...). But it's a matter of 3, maybe 4 small towns in the whole country, the rest obviously don't care at all. Never watched it much on tv though.

    If those laws actually get through, that would be absolutely fantastic news. Fuck everyone who drives with alcohol in their blood, seriously.
     
    If you'd make a list of names of every person who was innocently minding their own business - walking, driving, cycling, waiting, whatever - when they got hit and killed by someone with alcohol in their blood, you'd have a stack of books that would make Everest look like a tiny hill. Drunk drivers can drop dead for all I care, at least that saves some actual innocent lives.

    He got away lucky with that safety car situation (especially driving right up to the SC got me nervous), and thank goodness he did, because that was as tight and faultless of a race as you can get
     
    Fantastic job, one of the drives of his career I might even say.

    The margin isn't really thin though, more than 5%  
     
    Somehow I highly doubt a figure like Bolsonaro, who like Trump splits a country in half so much, will get many people from the 'other side' to come over to his side. I think Lula's chance greatly increased compared to 24 hours ago

    A nice season for him, despite some setbacks and the tongues of his critics.

    Well, if you live in a poor region (and are poor) you're probably not going to vote for the guy who quite literally only wants to do anything for the (super) rich  
     
    I know I wouldn't. I can imagine situations where voting for Bolsonaro is good for your wallet, like when you're rich (if that's the only thing one cares about), but when poor...no way..

    Football tragedy in Indonesia: A match between Arema vs Persebaya (two rival teams from East Java) ended 2-3 and the subsequent riot caused over 120 deaths.
     
    Home fans (Arema) began climbing the fence and entered the field, started destroying things before the police used tear gas to disperse them. Unfortunately it caused more panic and a stampede happened.
     
    34 people died on the spot, over 90 died in the hospital….

    The occupiers of Lyman have been encircled in the past few days, leaving only one road open for them to escape back to the gulag the glorious motherland. One road, which was nicely in reach of a ton of heavy artillery of the home team who got back their land. Yet another big step.

    Of course if Russian sportspeople say they do not support the Ukraine war it might be wise for them to avoid 10th floor windows in case they should "accidently" fall from them...

    Apparently the peloton and team managers were watching the TV producers' pictures in Slovakia today, and so - just like the TV cameras and especially the helicopter - they completely missed the duo of the tiny VolkerWessels team being ahead of them for 15km and scoring a highly improbable 1-2

    So I have reviewed this case and read the notes included in your entry post. I see that this song has connections to Poland, Ukraine and Slovakia and you have highlighted that fact when presenting the entry.
     
    I am happy to allow some flexibility in this case as with old traditional folk songs, it's often hard to trace the first root of the song and they sometimes have connections to many nations as is this case.
     
    I contacted the other party and they said they are happy for Slovakia to enter the song. In fact there was not an objection to the entry, just a friendly note wondering if the song was eligible since it was a multi-national folk song.
     
    So now that I am happy that the other user is ok for Slovakia to enter the song then I am also fine with allowing flexibility in this case as there is no doubt Slovakia has a genuine connection to the song.
