The entire European section of Brussels is closed off with an impressive presence of the police force at the ready, incl. a great number of water canons and such.
That can mean only one thing: I bet that the farmers are going to stage a protest.
I wonder why they stage a protest in the middle of the summer. We had a general strike in Greece last Thursday. If I were, say, minister of the interior, I would wish such well timed strikes as instruments to vent popular frustration. Just saying.
My niece, 14 years old since February, was talking non-stop about this boy she's seeing. Wondering what happened to her former boyfriend, she said that he's history. She said something about him threatening other boys with a knife.
Apparently - so her mother told me later - the former boyfriend got really jealous over another boy who was trying to get her attention. She told boy n°2 that she likes him but she already has a boyfriend so they can only be friends.
Boy n°1 got insecure and threatened the other boy up to the point of taking a knife to school to emphasize his threat.
Her mother told me that she's not yet exactly aware of how dangerous it can be to send mixed reactions (she's aware that she's a good looking girl who has men fighting over her...but now, she needs to learn how to not get into dangerous situations without realising it).
I think she's in luck that she has a 15-year old cousin who is somewhat acting as her big brother at times.
In all likelihood the knife was shown only to "make a point" but still it is scary. Kids hate losing face at this age.
will u teach her ?
Nah, self-learning usually works fine
Besides it is unlikely she will pay attention to family anyway
