“14 éve nem alszom nem eszem rendszeresen
De mindent tönkretettem magam körül ma módszeresen
Hogyha meg akar az Úr akkor veressen
De nem könyörgök senkinek baszd meg, hogy szeressen”

time's up, they're no longer accepting signatures
if you're from the EU and haven't done so yet, please please please sign the petition for unconditional basic income!
it needs 1 million signatures by the 25th june, as well as reach a certain threshold in at least seven countries which it only has in three, and it's also still missing so many signatures to reach 1 million and time is running out
please just do it, it's free, it should be safe cause it's quite literally an official EU site, and literally all you need to do is put your name and address on there (not visible to the public, but they will check if the signatures are legit so please don't fake any signatures, that'll just make it look like the goal was reached when it wasn't)
please just do this, time is running out for this initiative. if there's any reason you haven't signed it yet and won't do it, tell me the reason, maybe i can debunk it
here's the link to the petition: https://eci.ec.europa.eu/014/public/#/screen/home

Friendly reminder that if you call Eastern Europeans ‘snowflakes’ for not laughing at your war memes, you’re not quirky, you’re just a fucking asshole.
And you don’t get to tell us to ‘take a joke’ about a war that is happening few km from our borders (for non Ukrainians balkans).
If the war is not affecting you, your families, your friends or your other close ones, stop the ‘but this is my coping mechanism 🥺’ bullshit.

I know here on tumblr.org many of you are not that into the sportsball, but I know you love righteous drama and pettiness, and oof, do we have some for you over in football land.
So Hungary, as you may've heard, has put out some anti-LGBT legislation that would ban the depiction or promotion of homosexuality to people under 18. It's not quite law yet but it's just got to get through their president Viktor Orban who is, unfortunately, a shit.
Meanwhile, football, no the other kind of football- the one with the round ball, is currently having a big European tournament. Euro 2020. Yeah, they didn't rename it. Doesn't matter.
Germany were due to play Hungary last night in Munich and they asked the governing body of the tournament for permission to light up the stadium in a rainbow. Like this:
But they said no. Specifically, they said no while dressed in a rainbow pfp and claiming that the rainbow isn't a political symbol:
And Germany, bless them, looked at that and said, ooh bitch it's on now.
Munich city hall got out the banners
Here are the fans going to the match
The German captain Manuel Neuer in his rainbow armband (which UEFA had previously made noises about disciplining him for, because they're bastards all around)
A brief selection of the many stadiums across Germany that lit up in solidarity
And last but not least this absolute madlad who ran onto the pitch during Hungary's anthem
Viktor Orban stayed at home and sulked, and Hungary got knocked out of the tournament.
