A Malaysian airliner was shot down yesterday over Ukraine. The current suspicions are on pro-Russian separatists or Russia itself. There are reports of a phone call stating “shit it was a civilian plane" and one of the bigwigs says "it can't be. Why were they in Ukrainian airspace. They must be transporting spies.” This is how WWIII is going to start.
Not to mention the Israel - Gaza situation. Rocket attacks from Hamas on Israel. Israel is sending in troops to Gaza to retaliate. This is a powder keg waiting on a spark.
All of this going on and yet life continues on. Customers still open tickets. Jokes are still made. The Earth still spins. Days come and days go.
