    What a great player. Great moments, great memories. Thanks for sharing and the trip down memory lane.
  2. Greece commemorates the 1973 Polytechnic School student uprising, adding another sad chapter to what Greece is.

    Philadelphia Eagles

    This is one of those feel good stories, Jordan Mailata a rookie for the Eagles comes from the Rugby world and had never played American football. These are his words about the first NFL game he attended: “I was sitting on the sideline,” he says, smiling, “and I was like, ‘Shit. I’m on the same team that’s playing!’ It was very surreal. Who would have ever thought that my first ever game I went to was after I made the league? It’s kind of funny it turned out that way. It’s not even just about learning the game. It’s about doing certain things. Just to have that new experience is a unique experience. Every week it’s like that.” Full story on the Guardian article: Jordan Mailata had never watched an NFL game... until he joined the NFL

    Trump Presidency

    And that is something we knew about Trump even before he ran for office. Somehow, a lot of people chose not to believe what was already common knowledge.

    Trump Presidency

    Anybody with half a brain should pay attention to this man and his Sep. 7, 2018 speech. God, we miss him...😢

    Trump Presidency

    Which brings us back to ...Idiocracy (✔️ your 'favorite movie of all time' if I'm not mistaken... 🤣 . See? I do pay attention. I actually watched it because of your mention - and enjoyed it). Unfortunately this is where we stand in the USA, which seems to work good for the Conservatives. Democracy in the US is on a slippery slope thesedays. Big money is eroding democratic institutions and maybe serious constitutional reforms are desperately needed. The question is who's got the balls for that? Here's something to give you an idea of how the US Congress is pretty much responsible for shielding Trump, and what they intend to do in the near future to terminate the Mueller Special Counsel Investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US Elections. It's a little lengthy but worth a watch (not this kind ⌚ )

    As a last resort, why don't you try uninstalling Chrome, download the latest and greatest and install again? Just in case there's some voodoo there...

    Feedback From Boston Thanatos

    There are many variables could be contributing to a negative user experience. From our part, I'll check with developers and make sure the software does what it's supposed to do and all latest updates are installed. From a user perspective, it's a good practice to clean the cache (browser and system files) periodically.
  14. Loved the Belgium-Japan game. Coming back from 2 goals down is no small feat. Haven't seen it happen in World Cup knock-off stage since 1970.

    Macedonia Name Dispute

    Greece has reached a deal on the future name of its northern neighbor, they have settled on the name Republic of North Macedonia, or Severna Makedonija in Macedonian. The Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, addressed the nation:

    Trump Presidency

    Trump has absolutely nothing to do with the Korean re-approach. He just happened to be sitting in the US Presidential chair (unfortunately). Of course he likes taking credit for anything with a positive hue - i.e. the sun rising up every morning - whereas he blames everybody else for things negative (usually blames, Obama, Clinton, the Democrats and anybody that doesn't agree with him). Anyway, it's too early to come up with a conclusion on the outcome of the North Korea denuclearization intentions. The talks have not yet began. Only generalized intentions have been mentioned so far. Our Asshole in Chief is exactly that. Still.
