Croatia Expose Argentina As The Greatest Possible Frauds With 3-0 Asskicking

As a South American is devastating to see our teams losing, but Peru was an illusion (now gone) Colombia incertitude, Brazil hope, and Argentina a miracle because they didn’t deserve to be there and Croatia showed us why today.

Argentina came into their second group stage game against Croatia today needing to bounce back from a frustrating, leaden 1-1 draw with Iceland. Instead, they got run off the pitch by a determined Croatia side, who spanked them 3-0 thanks to two horrifying defensive errors and one moment of world-class precision from Luka Modrić.

Argentina now face the very real possibility of a first-round exit, and they need several games to break their way in order to limp out of Group D. Whether or not that happens, let us not forget: this Argentina side is full of frauds, they’ve all let Lionel Messi down, and they deserve to go home. I was actually happy that Croatia kicked their butts.

I also celebrate the determination of Japan and Iceland.

It’s time to change the game. Congrats Croatia!!!!

The Silent Epidemic

The sister of the Queen of the Netherlands has been found hanged in her apartment in an apparent suicide…

The Dutch government has confirmed that Queen Maxima’s younger sister, Ines Zorreguieta, 33, was found dead two days ago in Buenos Aires, Argentina, their homeland.

Ines reportedly suffered from depression and mental health problems.

Few days ago, American fashion designer Kate Spade also took her life. She also suffered from depression and anxiety for many years.

Suicide has been described as a “silent epidemic”: epidemic because of its high incidence and substantial contribution to mortality, and silent because of a lack of public awareness, a paucity of explanatory research, and the reluctance to seek help for suicide-related concerns. 

Depression is a nasty disease!

I read an article a while back that asked why someone would commit suicide.

They likened it to being in a burning building. No matter how much they wanted to stay the flames kept closing in and they had to jump. It was a sobering and honest testament to people who are struggling with their depression.

I hope all the victims found the peace that eluded them in this life.

Gravity-Defying Sculptures

Art is supposed to challenge us. Challenge our beliefs, our prejudices and even our concepts of what we believe to be possible.

Sculptures are a great medium for this, as they allow the artist to play tricks on the eye and mess with the viewer’s concepts of logic. Calling into question the laws of gravity and physics they make you wonder, how the heck did they do that?

From incredible feats of balance on a grand scale, to just plain head-scratching sorcery, below few of them.
