But you know who's not a war criminal? Bruce Lee. Or Bob Marley. Or Rocky (we shall not speak of Rambo). "We will always be Muslims, Serbs, or Croats, but one thing we all have in common is Bruce Lee," said one member of the group behind the Mostar statue. And we totally agree. As long as we're talking about the real Bruce Lee, and not those knockoff dudes who sprang up after his death. You'll only burn us once, Bruce Le!

In Senegal, Scrabble Is A Major Sport
In Senegal, Scrabble is the country's biggest pastime next to football (non-American soccer, not real football), and slightly more important than breathing. In fact, the Senegalese take Scrabble so seriously that many schools have their own competitive teams. And they're not treated like the nerds in chess club, but more like varsity-lettered super studs.
Even the Senegalese government is in on the game. They offer more aid to the National Scrabble Federation than to most of their poor neighbors, and it's common for the president to meet with international Scrabble players. In 2008, when the Francophone World Championship was held in Senegal, the government declared it "one of the most important events of the year" and commissioned a special song.
And it's paid off. The Senegalese are top dogs in the French-speaking league, becoming the world champions in 2016 -- quite the achievement for a country where barely a tenth of the population is French-literate. Maybe it's because they just want it harder than any of the other countries. After all, they're the only ones in the league to show up in official uniforms.
