33 of the Day

GENEVA (AP) — A record 33.3 million people worldwide were displaced by conflict and violence inside their own nations in 2013, U.N. and Norwegian officials said Wednesday.
The increase of 4.5 million above the 2012 total was driven largely by Syria's civil war, now in its fourth year, which activists estimate has killed 150,000 people.
The heads of the U.N. refugee agency and Norwegian Refugee Council reported that 8.2 million fled their homes in the last year, including about 3.5 million in Syria alone. The other two-thirds of the 33.3 million displaced by war worldwide had fled in previous years.
The 33.3 fits of course, since 33 is the number for the evil PTB, who are the ones who drive these senseless, terrible wars. (thanks to J for the tip)

The manager was able to have my husband and me in quickly to see the space. We were so lucky that they had our date available. This place made my wedding day absolutely perfect.
