Totally Random Fact: The most viewed video in , for a long time, was "balıkesirin çılgın eşekleri" (Crazy donkeys of Balıkesir)

It had over 85M views before getting removed in (IIRC) 2017 due to, well, the contents of it.

There are reuploads and similar videos available, but I do NOT recommend you check them out.

The video is ~50 seconds of two donkeys having intercourse.

I assume the most viewed video here nowadays is a boring and generic piece of pop music.

rambling, meeting with old friends 

I saw a friend of mine I haven't seen in years today. The last time I saw him we were both still 18, most clearly I remember the feeling of hope and excitement for the future we had. It was kind of bittersweet to see that he'd experienced the same disillusionment I have. We shared how we'd been, told eachother stories. He looks more tired, less happy. I missed him a lot, we used to meet up under this bridge to smoke cigarettes together. It was good to see him.

My first stop was sofiabike.com to pick up the rental #bike I'll be using the next few days in #Sofia. They were super nice and helpful. I'm happy with the bike so far.

#CarolinaMuñozManguello est une jeunes manifestante qui a “disparu” au #Chili... Les catabiniers affirment qu'il ne trouvent aucune “traces” d'elles. Ces camarades ont pourtant diffusé les images de son enlèvement par la police. #PiñeraDictador!
