Fongern_FX: Isn't it both ridiculous and scary to realise how years of ultra-cheap money and low rates create mind-boggling asset bubbles, and precisely these asset bubbles are at risk of bursting, thereby posing a systemic/stability risk. In other words, we've been digging our own graves.

FrankMillerIII1: Scotland w a leader who is not only a non-Scot, but also non-Christian? Doesnt pass the smell test. Wllm Wallace, Mary, Queen of Scots, Robert the Bruce, vomiting in their graves.

yermolenko_v: A military cemetery in Dnipro. Big big pain. Graves of Ukrainian heroes, with national flags over each of them. Thousands of those who gave their lives for our freedom, since 2014. Many of them young, in their 20s. Unspeakable pain. Glory to heroes..
