Not enough information ;)
2020-09-14 11:54
First Juggernaut, now Colossus? I'm starting to think that all NA esports CEOs are hooked up on X-Men. Taking Liquid's yellow jerseys into account, that seems to be true. Next thing you know EnVy gonna start building a fucking Sentinel or something

2020-09-14 16:25
wtf is this, this is literally not a thing in europe lmao. religions are cool af when you need mental support and youre at your low but it shouldnt be tought as a general thing imo

exactly, I find it ridiculous that they try to implant a religion that people don't want. I remember that once the teacher asked the students for their religion, and I said one who was an atheist, she already came to tell me that I wouldn't be here if it weren't for the divine strength
2020-09-14 18:12
that sounds so meh. people should be learning about facts not religions. or just spend few hours about religion in history subject but this is so baad.
