@heywoodu I believe we have our first tropical storm in the Atlantic too. Covid + Cyclones/Hurricanes, what’s the worst that could happen?

Yep, although that one isn't really expected to be too much trouble. Definitely not compared to what especially Bangladesh is awaiting.

I laughed out loud when I saw this:

How do you respond to these accusations @Werloc and @Bearas?

 

I fully expected to see people call out American, Russian, and Chinese fans, but Lithuania was an unexpected surprise :roflmao:

Chinese? :p They just seem to 'be there', Americans seem to be the most intolerable (in literally any sport ever, one might add) since you're pretty much always expecting some brainless 'U S A! U S A! U S A!' to be droning on from the stands :p 

 

Anyhow, the point made in that post is absolutely excellent, about how it's sad that the Olympics (and sports in general) are more about a national pride thing ("athlete A wins and he has the same nationality in his passport as I do, wow!") instead of a thing of actually appreciating the athletes no matter their nationality.

Uh oh. Fire in a former nuclear plant in the Netherlands, which was closed in 1997 and set to be broken down and demolished in 2045. Hopefully the uranium is indeed gone :lol:

Arnhem survived Market Garden, let's see if this proves to be their undoing.

Darya Klishina, the only Russian allowed to compete in athletics in the 2016 Olympics, said she has gotten a rather....interesting offer. An anonymous American offered her a sum of money to work as...you ain't gonna guess this....an escort :yikes: 

 

"He sent the offer a few months ago in a DM on Instagram, I never expected that. I'm not someone who starts yelling then, so I kindly answered I wasn't interested. He answered by saying "Wait, don't refuse immediately, you don't know the terms yet." It was a pretty large amount of money, 180.000 euro...per month. It kinda made me wonder if I really look like someone who'd accept that."

Anyone else feels like we will all lose our minds if this 1.5m thing continues for a whole year (or more)?

 

I have reentered the society about a week ago, and already I feel mentally exhausted from these measures.
