Unless you live in a cardboard box in the middle of a cow pasture you probably know about Crimea's referendum to separate from Ukraine.

Did you know that wanting to "break apart" isn't an isolated incident in 2014? For example, the former "Most Serene Republic of Venice" wants out of both Italy and the EU.

2014 Independence Referendums You Might Not Know About
- Catalonia, Spain (9 Nov 2014)
- Veneto, Italy (voting now through end of week)
- Scotland, UK (18 Sept 2014)
- Quebec, Canada

This video might put the fluidity of European borders over time in perspective.

World trends/events not allowed? I thought The Parlor was where you can post anything unrelated to wet shaving.

You can, just not political discussions. This one will definitely end up in that with strong opinions, one of them coming from me as this is my country we are talking about.

Gentlemen, while the OP is non-offensive and informative in nature, I am closing this thread at this time, for fear that inevitable political discussions that don't belong here will ensue.

Thank you.

While this has been eloquently summed up by both Beartrap and Ravi, I would just add that while this is the area where we discuss non-shaving related items, ALL forum rules are still in force here. This includes the rules on discussion of politics and religion (i.e. it is not allowed).

For those unfamiliar, please see the general forum rules posted here: http://shavenook.com/thread-forum-rules
