Pompeii= The wealthy used to swallow duck feathers to vomit, so they can
eat more.

They used Urine as Ammoniac, Urine was prized like Gold im Pompeii. Eww.....

Anyone new that would come into town Girl/Boy would be forced same sex

Incest was at the top level.

God sent The Prophet Lot to warn them of this. Lot did warn them until once
day God said " Take your family with you out of the city at dawn, except
your wife "

Because Prophet Lots wife was also playing the Kaafirs games.

When Lot went out of the city, Gods angels Turned the City upside down....
This is free information go dig it up. Save yourself from Gods punishment
and anger. Inshallah

Why do you think theyre making Islam look really bad? So that you can STAY
away from the TRUTH and be guided to Hell with Satan. That is his Plan. So
take him as Enemy to you as he has taken enemy on you.

Our place is Eternal Life God wants us in Eternal life he wants all of us
in Paradise. But then you have these ignorant people "Why is my temporary
life like this like that " instead of being grateful so God can give you
more on this Earth or save your rewards for the Hereafter.

If God created the Universe, couldnt he have the Power to create you a
universe of yourself?

It is said in levels of Paradise people Homes will be like how we see the
planets. According to their faith and trust in God.

You might not know Satan has the power to Afflict us with anything in this
Temporary World with the will of God to show that We chase our Desires and
Lusts rather than Love+Passion for God. That we hate God if he doesnt give
us anything and we become ignorant foolish prideful. and try to see
ourselves one step above God. Euzibillah.


First command was " Read in thy name of the Lord that has created thee"

Not watch TV or brainwashing videos.

Allahu Alim.

Guys, this has nothing to do with the songs name. In fact, they are all
shiki's. But this shiki infection spreads troughout air. (Shiki's are
vampires with completely black eyes). So this Guy tries to run from them.
But the infection is so strong, it jeeps following him. When the
transformation happens, he tries to run a bit further but in the end he got

Eh-eh-o eh-o

I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settled around us

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Eh-eh-o eh-o

Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?
Oh oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down (oh where do we begin?)
In the city that we love (the rubble or our sins?)
Great clouds roll over the hills (oh where do we begin?)
Bringing darkness from above (the rubble or our sins?)

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

If you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?

Some ppl may disagree with this but this is my own opinion about this song:
i think this song is actually based off the city pompeii. Because where it
says great clouds roll over the hills it is on about the ash from the
volcano that destroyed pompeii. Also where it says the walls keep tumbling
down is the buildings falling down from the rumble of the volcano

I'm going to go against the critics and say that 2014 has been such a
horrible year music-wise compared to 2013.
Last year the mainstream was filled with complete variety, everything
sounded really different from everything else because it was a transitional
year for the pop charts, there were more real instruments in many of the
songs that weren't EDM-dominated, alternative music was the best it had
been in recent memory with the explosions of Bastille, Imagine Dragons, The
Neighbourhood, The 1975 and others, some of the songs started to become
self-aware about everything that was wrong with pop music, with 'Thrift
Shop' and 'Royals' both being worldwide hits, not to mention the fact that
this was the year JT jumped back into the music world, which of course,
helped in favor of 2013. There was still teen-pop, but there was variety
between the songs gaining success. And people still cared about MUSIC
VIDEOS. Some of the biggest videos were silly enough for everyone to enjoy,
but a lot of them actually told a story, or flashed back to another decade,
and weren't always centered around the artist.

After Wrecking Ball, Harlem Shake and The Fox were released and all went
viral, other labels started trying to emulate, and so many songs have been
released specifically to get the same reaction from the media. Not to
mention all of the amazing pop idols from last year have been replaced with
the same old ex-Disney girls, fake bands, and Iggy Azalea, country's
somehow gotten worse than how it was last year, and the rap that's getting
successful is somehow even lower standard - just watch the video for Hot
Boy. All this has reversed the progress that 2013 was setting up, and pop
songs have gone back to being about the same stupid shit it's always been
about. I still like a lot of songs from 2014, but all this is just
frustrating -.-

Kudos if you actually read all of this

I don't get the meaning of this video. Help?

Author Daniella Alcala (25 days)
People saying Bastille is "buying" views because there's only 7 billion
people on the earth, let's have a little math class on youtube since you
apparently don't know the difference between hundreds,thousands,millions,
and billions. So let's say you have 100 people that number is a HUNDRED.
Now add ONE zero and you have 1,000 people THAT number is a THOUSAND. But
wait I'm not done add THREE more zeros and you get 1,000,000 people that
number is now a MILLION NOT A BILLION BUT A MILLION okay? So good so far?
Okay. Now if you add THREE more zeros you get 1,000,000,000 people which is
million number and you replace the 9 places with 151,652,283 you get the
number of views on the video currently. But if you remember to have a
BILLION people there had to be either 10 or 12 numbers, just like
7,000,000,000 or 7 BILLION or the amount of people on the earth. So if you
see how many zeros 7,000,000,000 (7 billion) has compared to 200,000,000 (2
hundred million or amount of views rounded off) you can see that the
population on earth has more zeros compared to the number of views which
means the amount of people on earth is greater or BIGGER than the amount of
views therefore making it FALSE (based on this information) that Bastille
is buying views since the amount of views is not bigger than the population
of the planet we are living on which by the way needs more educational
television shows so that people know the difference between A BILLION AND A
MILLION since apparently once again people don't know the difference :)
By the way I know people are trolling,as people call it, but there's always
time for a math lesson

Guys, this is the real meaning of the video: Pompeii, which was a place in
Russia. There was a volcano eruption which killed everyone. The people with
the black eyes, are the people that died. Dan tried to escape so he could
survive, but in the end, everyone dies.
