    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..

    Snow White played by a black actress would, like Black Lightning being played by a white actor, simply be weird because the color is literally in the name. But I really can't see any issue with a black or brown mermaid. I mean, come on...what's the argument going to be, 'real mermaids are white!'?

    Because 99% of series and movies had basically only white people (or black evil people), and that's changing to be more realistic. Simple as that, nothing wrong with that.
     
    Like people complaining about House of the Dragon beforehand, because of black characters. Jesus Christ. I get that people don't like it because they're not into Game of Thrones or fantasy in general and such, but really? Complaining about it (beforehand!) because some characters are black instead of classic Aryans?

    I wish our gov can get their shit together and switch to this. In the last election (2019), around 800 polling station staff members died from exhaustion because they have to finish the count ASAP

    Hungarian state media is telling 24/7 that the war only happened because the US and NATO provoked Russia. For most Hungarians only state controlled media "tells the truth". 
     
    They think what Orbán wants them to think. He has complete control over Hungary. I mean, they just announced today that the Hungarian state will buy Vodafone Hungary, which means that Orbán will have direct control over the majority of internet providers in Hungary. He has EVERYTHING. Hungary is essentially Russia at this point, a failed democracy. Orbán will outlive every current European leader, even Putin, he's here to stay for decades. 
     
    And I wouldn't even blame Orbán for this. The Hungarian voters simply democratically decided that they don't want democracy.

    Isaquias medal today was his first silver in World Championships, having already won 7 gold and 6 bronze medals.
     
    He now has 14 World medals, losing only to Cielo (19), Scheidt (17), Grael (16) and Cunha (15) as our biggest medalists ever.

    I think Cunha and Isaquias still have plenty of time to improve this ranking.

    LuizGuilherme reacted to OlympicIRL in Summer Olympic Games Los Angeles 2028 Sports Programme   
    The thing is though unlike water polo or hockey, cricket is hugely popular in some countries… England, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Australia, South Africa, across the Caribbean and although not the biggest sport in New Zealand by any means I assume it’s one of the top sports there. I didn’t even mention countries like Afghanistan where it is huge as well. And I’m Irish so my knowledge of cricket is not great so others can probably advocate the point better.
     
    Water polo and hockey don’t carry the same appeal even in most of the nations that do well in those sports (there are exceptions I know and hockey is huge in India I know that too).

    Like I say it’s all about perspective. I myself prefer hockey and water polo than cricket and I would selfishly want them in the Olympics ahead of cricket because I like them more.
    But I don’t see how cricket has less of a place in the Games as those 2 sports.
     
    It’s funny how I am arguing in favour of a sport like cricket that I never really followed nor is it particularly a sport I want to in the Olympics but just being objective.
     
    If I was to choose and didn’t have to care what others thought, I’d include bowls, darts and snooker as I love them
