This world cup makes me sick.

Unless you've been living in a cave or have just woken up from a long coma like Schumacher, you know the football world cup has started in Brazil.

Tonight Belgium is playing Algeria, and even if I had no intention of knowing this fact I do because this "info" has been forced down our throats all day long on the national "news."

All day long the national radio and TV "news" report opened with amazingly long featured about the football match. This so appalling to me as this is not newsworthy and as far as I know the world has stopped so everyone can focus on the football. Where are all the journalists? Probably in front of their TV.

Thousands of people have been forced out of their homes at gun point in Rio in the name of football and entertainment, thousands have been massacred because they didn't want to leave. But that, the "news" don't talk about. The world is silent. And the "news" don't mention how not a single penny all the millions will benefit the Brazilians.

And more appalling is that people aren't shocked to hear football first on the "news" report. They're not because most of them went home early to watch the match, and a quarter of Belgium hasn't even bothered going to work. Seriously, how is this possible for something as stupid as 22 men running after a ball that when they don't stop every time they break a nail.

I would love to go vomit on the national "news" that our public money funds.
