    Never rely fb as a (serious) source of news: what is said about Belgium simply is not correct!
    Feel free to run the source article through g-translate, it comes down to this: the Justice minister has said that he doesn't like the loot-box concept, and that he would like to see it ruled illegal - however, and that is a Big However: he also says that he is looking to the EU for legislation in this, in other words it will be several years at least until this will result in anything (if at all).

    Sea turtle is the only known specie to have survived 250 billion years without extinction.
    None has done better for now

    Ok, my bad for associating sea turtles with politicians, I should have used cockroaches, they have plenty there.
