do you ever just sit around and think I’m in my twenties.

I’ve really tried to understand the Israelis. I used to work on a farm in Israel. I speak Hebrew. I watch their news. All the time they talk about fear. How they have to run to their bunkers to hide from the rockets. How their children can’t sleep because of the sirens. This is not a good way for them to live. We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.

And they are scared the same way an exploitative and abusive employer is scared of a workers’ revolt. They’re afraid because they know that after all the atrocities they’ve committed, something’s bound to come their way.

Ukrainian people brought flowers and candles in memory of those who was killed by pro-russian separatists in the Malaysian aircraft to the embassy of Netherlands in Kiev.

It feels different coming in and Lamps not being sat next to me. We have sat next to each other in the changing room since… well, since he signed for the club really. I’ve become really close to Lamps and Ash and they were my two best mates at the club. So I’m really sad to see arguably the best player the club has ever had, in Lamps, move on, for what he brought to the dressing room and as a mate. You understand that you all get older, but you just hope that point doesn’t come.

what do you think of messi? — Anonymous

neymarporn:

I respect him as a player but the whole world is constantly sucking his dick for being the “best player in the world”. Even when he doesn’t play good, he is still praised and awarded the freaking Golden Ball award for being the “best player” at the world cup, which is really unfair to the other players that truly deserved it. he scored 4 goals all in the group stage, so the whole he ” dragged his team to the final” thing is bullshit. the real stars of argentina are the defense, they were slaying. they were the reason germany only scored once yet all everyone seems to pay attention to is messi, who failed to score within the last 4 games. this was not his WC, he did not need that award, he is skilled but so overrated.
