Possibly not. The highest google searches from Britain post vote was "What's the EU?" and "What does it mean to the EU?" Seems that a lot of the votes were reactionary protest votes, and people didn't truly understand what they were voting for. Now they do, and they don't like it. 
yeah, the way i see it, as an outsider not heavily invested in the news, alot of Brits seem to be reacting to the whole Brexit thing with "What, that was for realsies?"

to be fair, i think alot of Americans probably DO vote that way, just arbitrarily voting for whoever represents the party they identify with. which is how we got to the "lesser of two evils" 2016 race.

Ancient 6,000 year old tombs in Spain also served as primitive telescopes.

Considering how Atlantis was most likely also found in Spain a few years ago, it makes you wonder if Spain is becoming a real life land of legends.

I think they have just given up. If any of those things happened, they would have said so in the article.
most likely. i mean, technically those guys who escaped from Alcatraz are still wanted men, but in all likelihood they either died in the bay trying to escape or have died of natural causes by now.

I just think he doesn't care about the world at this point. His term is almost over and he couldn't care less if half of the Earth is beginning to burn down.

BREAKING NEWS: Speaking of half of the Earth burning down, Turkey is undergoing a military coup as I'm typing this.

To be quite frank with you, I'd love nothing more than to see the likes of Erdogan and his cabinet of petty thugs thrown out of office and tossed in jail or whatever these things usually lead to.

I just hope to god this doesn't end up leaving a huge body count.

This is why I say the world sucks. I gave up trying to have hope this will get better. I think a rock should hit this Planet and restart everything.

Anyway, and we have Olympics too. I'm really afraid something will happen.

Ugh, right... there's also that Rio shitshow.

It's shocking how few people give a rat's arse about the criminally unsanitary conditions in and around the olympic venues, not to mention the literal pants-on-head stupidity required to consider holding an event of that magnitude in a shithole like Rio as opposed to, you know, the countless other cities in Brazil where you're a thousand times less likely to be shanked or kidnapped.

True.

You know, I live in Brazil but thankfully not in Rio. But I live in a city that is 207km away from Brazil's capital, Brasilia. I'll remain in my house in the whole event. I just fear for the worst, the security isn't ready for an event like this, not to mention how they'll cover the criminality, drug factions and stuff. The unsanitary conditions of the lakes are just a "small" tip of the iceberg. Terrorism is also a big thing, and that's why I'm really afraid of even getting out of my house, because I don't doubt something will happen. I just hope for the best, because if they want to cause chaos on the Olympics, they'll surelly do.

I mean, in all the places they could choose to have an Olympics...Most brazilians are unhappy with it, all respect towards the atlethes, but we have so many important priorities (that I already said on JPL/JPP), and they spend the money trying to bring an event like this that will bring nothing good to our country and will expose so many things to the world...

I won't even mention some stupid shit that happened with the torch while it was travelling in the cities.

This is factually wrong. He was actually the first to call it terrorism.

But will he call it "Radical Islamic Terrorism" like the rest of the world fighting that fight wants him to? Nope.

Religiously motivated or not, anybody involved in planning and executing such a display is a fucktard that should never have been born.

Either way, that waste of life is just one of god knows how many. This year, and last year as well, have been just so terrible for France and Europe, and we've been shown time and time again that this sort of thing can easily happen even with months upon months of preparation. By the time 2017 hits, we may have seen far worse.

The military coup in Turkey has failed. The main reason was because senior officers did not take part in the attack and only some in the Air Force, MP's and some armored units made it up.

I find it hilarious that people think saying "radical islamic terrorism" will do anything. Will the terrorist magically drop dead or something?

Either way, these events are terrible, and my heart goes out to the victims. Out enjoying a fun evening, only to have a maniac in a truck run you over.

Nope, they won't drop dead, but it'll make our glorious president acknowledge that it exists and is much more than just simple "gun control issues" or whatever else excuse he can come up with.

Also not sure if this part was true but if it is then that claim of responsibility is false. But apparently from what I read it also took responsibility for the Orlando attacks and a Eiffel tower fire that never happened so if that's true then it's validity is something to be questioned.

I'd say they'll take credit for anything to be feared.

So bombing the shit outta ISIS militants doesn't do enough to acknowledge that it exists? K den.

Agreed. ISIS wants the street cred that it took Al-Qaeda and the Taliban decades to build in only a matter of a few years. So, they'll take responsibility for every act of terrorism that pops up.

I HATE politics in the USA. I'm starting feel more and more like this two party system is designed to keep us fighting each other, rather than fighting for what's best for our country. It's really sad. You go on Facebook and it's literally a "us vs them" mentality. I understand people have political differences of course. But This isn't right.... We all want what's best for the country so we need to stop fighting each other and set our sights on compromise and changing Washington.

In my humble opinion.
