    Default Eurovision 2019

    In under half an hour. You know what to do.
    Greece shows us that there is a kind of politician worse than the ones that break their election promises; the ones that keep their election promises.

    Just me, or is the jury vote kinda ridiculous though? Taste is subjective, which is why a public vote is needed to find the average opinion. Could you imagine if there were elections, and they split the weighting of votes between the CEOs of the top 100 companies, and the people in its entirety? It's just dumb. ESPECIALLY when the jury votes on neighbouring countries time and time again.
    Tomorrow is like an empty canvas that extends endlessly, what should I sketch on it?

    Never understood the butthurt about people preferring their neighbors. More concerned about Russia obviously gaming the popular vote because, yuck, wtf was that creepy-ass musical dog-turd

    Yeah as a part of one of those arrangements you wouldn't mind. But the favor your direct neighbor seriously distorts the chances of the other participants who don't have a block that puts them at an advantage no matter what. The proximity principle is not at work in all regions of Europe.

    Because if it were Scandinavia and more in particular Sweden would never get within throwing distance of winning.
