@Kidfried I was thinking earlier and I had something similar a few years back. It was like a sharp pulsing pain by the side of my stomach. Spent the May Bank Holiday weekend in hospital. Had all kind of tests and scans. But they never did find out what was wrong. The painkillers gave me awful diarrhoea though which they weren't supposed to. The pain did eventually recede and I don't get it any more.

Hopefully what ever is wrong with you isn't serious and you make a full recovery soon.

@Kidfried That’s rough. Hope they can find out what’s wrong and get you feeling better. Have they given you anything in the meantime to help with your symptoms?

@Kidfried Only just saw this and I hope you get some rest and feel a lot better soon. Getting poorly with all that is going on is no joke.

I have been working hard all week, and I'm gonna dive into the new Valorant act immediately. Hopefully, you guys can also have a great weekend playing some games or just getting to rest after a tiring week!

@RogerRoger I think that gif needs to come with an epilepsy warning, like at the start of video games!

The ads I'm getting right now on Push Square are... weird. Huge close-ups of the leader of a nationalist populist party from my country, multiple times per page.

Can't hide from politics anywhere I guess!

@Kidfried Political ads are insane over here right now, as you might imagine. Television, YouTube, and radio is almost intolerable. I’m not sure how political ads work in other countries, but it almost comical the way each side tries to paint the other.
”Don’t vote for John Doe! He voted 10 times to empty all the prisons and has a proposed tax plan to charge you for oxygen consumption! Vote for Frank Schmoe. He’s tough on crime and wants to give all citizens free candy and has the cure for cancer.” [cue patriotic music and a flying flag in the background]

@nessisonett You're a bit quiet recently, old chum, busy with studying?

@Th3solution We don't have a predominantly two-party system, which makes all the difference. As a result every candidate has multiple opponents, so there isn't this 1-vs-1 you lot have over there. It doesn't really make that much sense to ***** talk about one specific opponent.

The four biggest parties tend to be the Christians (family values), Labour party (social democrats, affordable healthcare), Right-wing liberals (law and order, free market) and the Democrats (personal freedom, education, bit of climate). Then there are of course two nationalist conservative parties, left-wing parties, etc.

Also, no party ever gets majority, so they always have to work together to form coalitions. Which results in the smaller parties also becoming significant, because they can help the bigger parties to reach a majority.

Long story short: it's way different. It's interesting to follow this US election, in all its craziness.

@Kidfried When you say nationalist populist party, I still don't know which one you're talking about lol.
