Anonymous said: What is the 80% going to if we donate? Is it going to the maintenance of this blog? I don't understand why every blogger has to have a donate button on their blog
As I previously said, 20% of donations will be destined to charity (AIDS-related, homeless shelters, and helping poor schools with better books). All will be documented and the evidence of actual donation posted on the Questions blog. I guess some bloggers have the option to let open the possibility for people to contribute, if they want to. :)

Some of those “Nerdfighters” are crazy. I posted a comment on a Crash Course video saying the information they give (specially in the Psychology one) isn’t always correct, and now I’m being insulted with every name under the sun. Damn.
If you’re not Brazilian, you cannot fathom the uproar of reactions this game has caused. Celebrities are outraged, people are crying, depressed. I think it’s all very interesting from a sociological point of view. Don’t get me wrong, I had no preference towards the result, and as a matter of fact (since I don’t care for this kind of sport), I wasn’t aware today was to be held such an important match, or even that the World Cup was ending. However, I do think it’s sad that people CARE so much about this. They cry and get sad while the players go to their mansions in their private jets or ferraris.
I though it was awkwardly quiet when I didn’t hear fireworks when there’s a game going on. Now I know why. Brazil’s being slaughtered by the Germans, and that’s a good thing, to be honest. Our government spent billions on this World Cup, building state of the art arenas and whatnot, whilst the people are suffering from hunger, violence, lack of sanitation in many parts of the country, shortage of hospital beds, doctors and general hospital equipment (specially now, during winter), and many other things. I think it’ll be good for us to lose in our own country. Maybe then people’ll learn (yes, I know, people rarely learn).
It was very funny, Brazilians are so keen of football (or soccer, as it were), stores close when there’s a big match and whatnot, then… when Fifa brought the World Cup to here, everyone went mad all of a sudden and remembered about our country’s poor situation. People wake up when it’s already too late.
