This article about the ‘74 Socceroos and Advance Australia Fair (from April but back because of Gough) is a really excellent and interesting read! Just look at that amazing fact up there!

hhahahaha “they’re a good sort what’ll we play them”

As a Chinese person, I can confirm that this is, in fact, the Chinese national anthem.

Despair is a much more dangerous feeling than fear, because fear is an intense feeling and, even if it can be momentarily paralyzing, in the end it calls for action, and, surprisingly, it can also create solutions. But despair is a feeling that calls for passivity and acceptance of reality even if it is unbearable, and it sees every spark of hope, every desire for change as a cunning enemy.
