and the like.Post all the above,one might ask,”What the heck is all this information regarding?”,and this apparent surprise wouldn’t be out of place.I’m talking about the global phenomenon that has taken people all around the world by storm,and is gearing up to wreak even more havoc on the weak of heart as the days count down to upcoming international events.
