In my humble opinion.

Indeed. Even here, deciding the future of one's country can feel like such a glorified pissing match.

Not just between the candidates, but the voters and all. It's astonishing how many people treat the recent EU referendum result like it was a bloody one-nil finish at a football match and assume everyone genuinely concerned about the consequences of the result is just a sore loser.

Brazil is in the same path in politics. It's really getting annoying.

This whole thing has been exemplified in the republican national convention. I mean, dang, the whole message is that the world is falling apart, and apparently only Donald Trump can save it, and to be afraid of the "other", whether thats muslims, mexicans, the lgbt community, whoever.

By the way, i'm not exactly fainting over Hilary's goodness or trustworthiness either.

Hillary's a crap candidate, no doubting that, but Trump is beyond horrendous. The fact he was able to secure the nomination on the back of all the scaremongering isolationist bullshit, backpedaling and downright insane ideas he has pulled over the last year is just saddening.

Saying Trump is the only one who can prevent the country from falling apart is like suggesting one extinguish a bonfire by throwing fireworks on it.

This could quite possibly be the worst presidential election in US history. I can't even talk to people on "my side" of the political spectrum without getting into arguments with them (seems to be the case with both parties to some degree at the moment...). It's all about the "party" - maybe just getting rid of this party system would just cause people to listen to and THINK about their candidates instead of making snap decisions based on what party they're running for (which is often a sham anyway; half the time they just run for whichever party is willing to elect them, regardless of their actual opinions).

Yeah... call it wishful thinking, but I really hope this sham of an election forces America to wake the hell up and see that godforsaken political system for what it really is.

No offense, but you REALLY need to stop watching the news. It will only make your life more and more miserable. I know I'm repeating myself from JPL, but in your case, you really should consider doing other things that will take your mind off on the world's problems. Sometimes in life, ignorance really is bliss.

I'm okay. I hear about those stuff but I try to turn my feelings off and don't get beaten by it, as cold as it sounds. I learned something past those days, that I should only foccus on things that will give me knowledge and make me think positive. Things that are really important such as Universe. That I should stop thinking about futile things. I really can't do anything about those shit stuff that happens in the world, I with I could change, but yes I know I can't. All the negative things I just ignore after hearing about. Ppl can mock me, say shit stuff around me, be ignorant, I don't care anymore. I'll try to turn my feelings off to those stuff. Reason above emotions.

Alligator gars are being reintroduced to old/former habitats to hunt down Asian carp.

It's nice to see a comeback for an animal that was driven out of its land. I always love a comeback story Very Happy

A high ranking diplomat from North Korea has defected to South Korea. This happened not long after a colonel from the North Korean spy agency defected in April. Most likely afraid of getting purged since Kim Jong Un has purged more people then his dad has. And that is saying something.
