Fake News volleyball player beheaded by Taliban

Stories and News No. 1245 So, once upon a time the word “news”. News… let's say stuff published somewhere out there, okay? Like a post from the Independent Persian , a recently born newspaper that is not even on Wikipedia; or some Indian newspaper that has copy-pasted it. But you don't pay attention to it, am I right?

They are the ones who are dedicated to counting what really matters. How many animals are at risk of extinction this year, how many days we anticipated the exhaustion of the earth's resources, how many atoms of excess carbon dioxide are in this instant in the fragile mantle of breathable air that stoically covers our poor planet. Silence now, the Judge is coming. All up, here he is. Indeed, the judge, to be honest, is a she and she is the Time. Because Time is a woman, you know?
