  • I agree that just watching a random sport or 2 random teams can be boring. It becomes interesting when you feel a connection to the team or athlete. If you go and watch live, it also becomes a community thing.

    Personally, I used to train football (soccer) in my local team in a small town and everyone basically knew all the players.

    Football becomes more interesting when you throw a beer can at a player, who also works at a pizzeria, and he takes a sip and throws it back.

  • От месеци се чудя дали има смисъл от патриотизма и какво означава България за мен. В днешния свят, много хора се фокусират върху професионалната си себереализация и някои напускат България за да се развият. Според някои по-радикални, тези хора са “предатели” (това е доста краен вариант). От рационална гледна точка, ако напуснеш България, учиш, работиш или като цяло се реализираш лично и професионално в чужбина, то решението да напуснеш може да се окаже най-доброто в живота ти.

    Според мен, не е продуктивно да си набиваме в главите, че България е най-красивата държава, българската трева е най-зелена, българския въздух е най-свеж и т.н.

    Както ти каза, мисля, че трябва да гледаме трезво на културата си и на това, което ни прави българи. За много хора, това че са българи, няма окаже по-голямо влияние върху живота им, отколкото това, какви личности са, образованието им и т.н.

    Относно това дали ще ни има след време… Най-вероятно ще ни има под някаква форма, ако не се самоунищожим ние или човечеството като цяло.

  • In 2013, he came out as gay, criticized an “Anti-homosexual propaganda” law and wrote an article for The Guardian, denouncing homophobia in Russia. In the last few years, he has supported laws banning LGBT propaganda and has had to apologize numerous times for sayng things that are so unhinged, that even the Russian media has called them “disgusting”. Anyone interested can take a look at the “2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine” section of his Wikipedia page. It contains gems, such as " drown the children" and “final solution”

  • I’ve been lucky enough to visit other Slavic countries like Serbia, Macedonia and Bosnia. After realizing that we are in the same shithole, I can’t not sympathize with my brothers.

    The more I think about it, the more I wonder why so many of us look at the world from some primal lense. Everything must to be turned into an “us vs them”

    In the case of Bulgaria, we have been slaves for 700 out of the 1300 years we’ve been around. The fact that we are still here and call ourselves “bulgarians” is, in my opinion, miraculous. I guess it is in part, thanks to this self-preservation mechanism.

  • For now, I find it kind of boring. On reddit, I used to spend more time in comment sections than regularly scrolling. Now I don’t really do that, because there are either no comments or the comments are the same.

    When I started using lemmy with the default sorting option (‘active’ i think?), I would see the same posts for days, now I use top 6 hours and that problem is fixed, but lemmy now feels like a news site with comments. Also I am European, but it feels like 50% of content is some local American politics. I don’t care about my own town’s politics, so I don’t care about that guy from Minnesota either.

    A post from asklemmy hasn’t shown up in my feed in a long time and I kind of forgot it existed, but looking into it, looks like one of the only interesting places here, so I guess, I have visit it more often.
