ok ok I admit the full moon was really beautiful

but still any "Friday 13th" talk is nonsense, and the myth of "full moon makes you sleep badly" is also complete nonsense and also ridiculously far-spread

I get the feeling that a lot of this good and bad stuff being pointed out on Friday the 13th happens on most other days too, but we tend to focus on the things that happen on that Friday because it's superstitious.

It is empirically confirmed that insurances have less damages on Friday 13ths BECAUSE of the "careful" behaviour of superstitious people (and these are surely quite many)

Merry Christmas everyone. This is the day the Catholics picked to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and it is also a day millions of people around the world celebrate family and love.

It's not about the gifts. It's about the people you spend it with. To you all I wish a blessed day and I hope you all are having a good time.

God bless us all and Jesus.
I want to say thank you to God for every day he gives me on this planet and for the chance to be in a better place when I die.

Thanks for the kind words, I wish people (myself included) would remind themselves over the whole course of time how important their fellows are.

There seems to have been an immense explosion in Beirut, the main capital and port of Lebanon, powerful enough to have people close enough to it to literally have their eardrums burst. This one is quite tragic, seeing as this happened in a quite frequently populated area, houses one kilometer away (or half a mile) felt the seisms so bad the foundations of the house begun to tremble, let alone pieces of the roof falling apart. I just hope they recover from this.

Honestly, I am not so sure what caused the explosion, but I hope the wounded get out safely.

I read that it's most likely caused by a chemical disaster (ammonium nitrate). And yeah of course Trump talks about a terrorist attack without any evidence

I heard that one of them was containing fireworks and which exploded there as well.

And fuck Trump lol everything is a terrorist attack in these countries for him.

My bad. And man you're good at catching these kinds of mistakes. =P

So far people have theorized either of those possibilities, it doen't mean either of those caused it yet. And yeah, Trump's words are not the best reference either, though I wouldn't discard the possibility of a terrorist attack yet myself.

According to the news I heard, security standards were not observed and warnings were ignored.

Also what a contrast, Germany be like "we're distraught and express our condolences and offer help", while Trump be like "yeah it was a bomb, why care"

Because Germany actually cares and gives their condolences to the families who lost someone who died there.
Trump would care, but since it’s been more in the east he doesn’t. Now look this would happen in America he would care because that is his Kingdom.

But since we Know-how much he hates the east region people he calls it a terrorstic attack and etc.

HIGHLY unlikely.

If there's one thing a leader should be that is imparcial. To outright call it a terrorist attack just like that and move on like it was just some random bystander who fell off his bike is just wrong, it doesn't matter if that person lives in the east, west, underground or space.

Whatever, we should not forget that this tragedy shred a huge light on the corrupt and highly mafia-esque structures in Libanon. It sucks to say that this was a homemade disaster. But it's innocent people who have to pay for it.
