Had possibly the worst week of my life last week

Maybe tennis was the only thing that didn't feel different

Even though I'm feeling pretty shitty right now, I realise its all relative. And there are so many people who have suffered so much worse in their life. I still can't even pluck up the courage to tell my Islamic family I found Christ and he's the only one who gets me through the day.

No, not your skeletons, those of our international-robin-hood-jihadist.

The world will not get better when Trudeau Jr. is elected so I don't blame you. Would you vote for the hockey party? Now that would be a landslide!

There were 3 Swiss behind:
-Benjamin DELESSERT (1773-1847)
-Guillaume MALLET ( 1847 - 1826)
- Jean Frédérick PERRÉGAUX (1744 - 1808)

And one Frenchman:
- Jean Barthélemy LE COUTEULX DE FRESNELLES (1746 - 1818)

Henri Guillemin completely dismantled Buonaparte on that matter.
heh heh, english bankers weren't fans...and so, Waterloo...'say,thats a mighty fine war debt...'

I would not like to be in my twenties at this juncture. It can only get worse.
from an economic standpoint, especially in the west, yes.

the western economy grew and grew. nowadays uncertainty prevails and that obviously affects small countries like mine, esp. commodity prices of which chile is heavily dependent.

Re: Is the world getting better?

Global debt slavery is very real, for all. Until the truth becomes widely known, then a new renaissance will not arrive. We won't evolve as a species if we keep on giving away our liberties. Very few democratic governments elected are in control.

The answer is no, though we are led to believe we are.
