Today, approximately at 4 P.M. a passenger plane ”Malaysia Airlines” has been shot down by the terrorists in Donetsk oblast’
It crashed near Hrabove, which is a territory, currently under control of the terrorists.
About 280 passengers + 15 crew had lost their lives.
My family and I would like to express our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those, who were on board of that plane.
One the of the leaders of the terrorists Igor Strelkov (Girkin) posted videos of the plane being shot down, expressing how happy he was, thinking it was a Ukrainian airplane. When it was announced that it was a foreign one, they started to delete all that information, but not before it was seen by everyone.
I won’t add anything. For almost 23 years we lived in peace, with no wars and no terrorism. And then these monsters (Russians and local criminals helping them) came and brought this nightmare with them.
It’s just… saddening. Saddening to see such violence; it was for a good purpose, that much has always been clear; without a revolution Ukraine would never have been able to seek ties with the west and rid itself of the Putin dictatorship, but I will never not get…
So you’re one of those delusional people who says that there is no nazis in Ukraine? Well, soon you’ll be in EU with your nazi-lovng friends and you will stop suck out of Russia
I’m not saying there are NO Nazis. Unfortunately, they exist everywhere. But the statement that they are at power in Ukraine is not just a horrendous lie, it’s just utter bullshit. And I seriously don’t give a flying fuck about Europe, because it’s RUSSIA that is causing us problems. Our deal with Europe was economic only, Europe should deal with its own Nazis.
And finally, it’s your last sentence that summarizes everything. Typical pro-Putin rhetorics: no intelligent arguments, just insults. Very typical of Russians these days. That is quite saddening, too, I guess.
“Create a climate of fear and it’s easy to keep the borders closed. It’s just a matter of emphasis. The right word in the right broadcast repeated often enough can destabilize an economy, invent an enemy, change a vote.”—The Editor (Simon Pegg), Doctor Who, The Long Game (via snovyda)
attention passengers this is your pilot speaking, we’re going to be experiencing some heavy turbulence shortly so please strap in. this loser just bet that i couldn’t do a 360 barrel roll in this thing and let’s just say i’m about to be $20 richer real soon
You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod, phone, iTunes, media player, etc. and write down the first 20 songs. Here are the rules: NO SKIPPING! Be honest!
It’s just… saddening. Saddening to see such violence; it was for a good purpose, that much has always been clear; without a revolution Ukraine would never have been able to seek ties with the west and rid itself of the Putin dictatorship, but I will never not get emotional over seeing innocent civilians gunned down by Titushky and the Berkut, men and women savagely beaten in the thousands in the cold winter square - yet for all the horror there is all the good that came out in people, bringing food for the hungry, wood for the fires, it truly was Ukraine and abroad united as one.
Yet this war, this senseless war spurred on by Tsar Putin, it seeks to drive apart that unity that was fought for so hard by those who stood atop maidan square for so very long.
I am sickened by the actions of such an evil, evil man, and all those complacent with what he seeks to accomplish.
Glory to Ukraine, forever shall it reign independent.
I just want to add a bit. Those people who come to the Eastern Ukraine, say, from Russia, to fight for all those “people’s republics” are not always terrorists and extremists. Some of them are good-hearted people, who genuinely got terrified upon seeing in their news that the new Ukrainian government are “fascists and neo-nazis”. Which is a complete lie. All this thing, all those rebellions started because of the lies and brainwashing propaganda. And of course, Russia sending weapons and some “leaders”. So many people died for nothing. It’s a horrifying thing. It all started because of the lies. Russian propaganda is killing not only Ukrainian people, but also Russian (and they refuse to admit that Russians have fought and have been killed in this war). It’s a horrible, surreal thing.
“He felt very sad, because it occurred to him that he was going to die soon.
Hector had thought about death quite often before. Back when he had been studying medical science, he had seen a lot of dying people at the hospital. Back in those days he and his friends were very young, and most of the dying people were considerably older, and it seemed to them that it happened to some other people, who were not like them. Of course, they understood it was wrong, however, as we’ve said before, knowing and feeling are different things, and it’s feeling that matters.”—François Lelord, Hector and the Search for Happiness
“Fear of death wasn’t the hardest challenge for him. No, most of all Hector was ridden by the thoughts of the people he loved and who loved him, of how he was never going to see them again and how unhappy they were going to be when they found out about his death.”— François Lelord, Hector and the Search for Happiness (via snovyda)
Edgar: Now, some of these injuries are from like… some of these injuries are real, aren’t they?
Simon: Yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely. I actually… I did stab Nick in the hand once. We were playing the knife game, I stabbed him on the set of Spaced by accident. I did run over my friend… well, I lost control of my friend’s Suzuki, I didn’t run over his leg though.
Edgar: Now, both of us have, like, a bullying instant in our life that inspired this.
Simon: Yeah, the whole thing of dislodging the eyeball came from the story from my school days and a bully who kind of made my life slightly miserable in the corridors for about a year of my school life.
Edgar: All bullies are called Shane as well.
Simon: They’re all called Shane. Shane Hawkins. I like the idea of a bird of prey, the hawk… But you had the same thing…
Edgar: I had the same thing… one of the things that inspired the movie was when I used to go back to my hometown and I’d feel kind of like alienated, like, just… nobody recognised me anymore. I used to go to the pub a lot when I was a kid. But then, when I went back after college and coming back from London, publicans wouldn’t recognise me, people from school wouldn’t recognise me, and very memorably for me, a bully from school, like, completely blanked me, pun intended. And I was never sure whether he, like, didn’t remember who I was or didn’t care, but somehow I was annoyed by the fact that he didn’t recognise me.
Simon: Yeah, and I had a similar thing which, I think, was certainly my inspiration for the “that all meant nothing” moment in that speech… I similarly came into contact with the boy who hated me at school and was very sort of like dismissive of me and saw me in a pub like it was after a play we’d been in together. He was like “Alright, remember those times?” Like it meant nothing.
Edgar: Yeah, like it was a game.
Simon: Yeah, like it was a game. And I felt like it wasn’t a game. You made me pretty miserable, why am I gonna laugh and smile with you, you… c*nt.
The World's End commentary always amazes me with how many things came from real life...
Edgar: Now, wasn’t the thing about falling asleep on the pool table…?
Simon: That was Nick. Nick did that. He fell asleep at a pub in Camden called The Stag’s Head. I think he slept for about eight hours on the pool table, and when he woke up, everybody knew who he was. And it really freaked him out.
