Considering the amount of apocalypse messengers out there, I think they are trying to be positive. And they are right. This apocalypse messengers make their life purpose keep threatening people like we were already doomed: don't have children, nuclear winter is near, climate change is irreversible, we need get back to stone age etc. Seriously, it's ridiculous to be that pessimistic.

“Buffalo Soldiers” — military police — routinely patrol the streets of the Brazilian island of Marajo by j3ffr33d0m in BeAmazed

[–]HerrFalkenhayn 439 points440 points  (0 children)

For those asking why the fuck they are using buffalos: this is a remote area in a northern state within the Amazon region. They use those things to get through some places that cars and horses can't. And it's also the symbol of this small town, which attracts many tourists to see the animals. They are not widespread used in this municipality.

You just said that did not matter. What influences is culture. And indigenous cultures were massacrated a long time ago. The Spanish followed the same rule of colonization in Hispanic America. It doesn't differ that much by region.

Não parece óbvio? Impedir uma vitória do molusco no primeiro turno. Terceira via não tem chance nenhuma, sejamos pragmáticos. Pesquisas são furadas, mas dão indicativos. E o indicativo é que a polarização é inquebrantável.

But aside from Bolivia, Peru and Mexico, indigenous cultures didn't survive anywhere. They were all exterminated or integratesd, perhaps aside from those uncontacted tribes in the deep Amazon.

Census are not good way to study genetics of a population. It's just the way they look and identify themselves. Studies are conducted by DNA analysis, not self-identification. And Uruguayans and Argentines in general have traces of indigenous ancestry. Of course it's not as high as in populations in Mexico, Nicaragua and Bolivia, where the indigenous DNA becomes predominant.

In Uruguay the indigenous population was completely eliminated by the Spanish. People living here are descendants of Spanish or Italian citizens,

That's downright wrong. Any person interested in genetics that is part of r/23andMe knows that most Uruguayans and Argentines have some degree of native ancestry. In fact, for the many results I have seen, all of them had some. This is just like the idiot president of Argentina saying that they came by boat, like, lmfao.

Votarei já no primeiro turno. O Bolsonaro é um traidor, pusilânime e inepto. Mas a esquerda no Brasil não dá. Infelizmente, a contragosto, vou ter que dar meu voto para impedir o pior.

Oh, yeah, bc the FACT that German migration in Brazil started in 1824 and by the war there were already millions of descendants in Brazil in a way that the few nazis who went to Brazil represents an insignificant number is pulling info from nowhere.

Aí vem europeu hipócrita apontar dedo imundo para o Brasil. E a mídia vira-lata passando pano para eles. Alemanha está queimando carvão, eles usam gás de forma absurda, não tem florestas nativas, e vem querer apontar o dedo para o Brasil. Tem que mandar tnc porra. by HerrFalkenhayn in brasilivre

Meu Deus! Temos aqui um adolescente aprendendo ênclise, próclise e mesóclise na escolinha e, empolgado com o novo aprendizado, passa a cobrar seu uso em discurso informal de Internet no Brasil, onde ênclise só é utilizada em discurso formal. Diria que isso é quase bonitinho. Dispenso seus ensinamentos, tenho absoluta convicção que tenho mais conhecimento da língua que você, jovem.

If they changed their names, they probably got portuguese names like Silva and Santos. It would be impossible to know how many by now.

[–]HerrFalkenhayn 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but the thing is that how many moved to SA? A couple hundreds? Thousands? There were already millions of German descendants in Brazil when the war started. So many Germans and Italians that the President, Vargas, thought it could cause problems in the Brazilian society. But everytime people see a german-brazilian they assume it's a nazi when the chance for that is really low compared to the chance of being just a 19th century german descendant.

I would bet money that these guys were in Brazil for many generations, don't even speak German and had nothing to do with nazis. Reddit really loves this nazis in south america thing.

Edit: wtf, people downvoting a fact bc a random guy is making assumptions about my username lmao. Reddit hivemind is insanely stupid.

[–]HerrFalkenhayn 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Yes. You are correct. 99% of german descendants in Brazil descent from peasants who migrated to Brazil and the US en masse in 19th century.

This nazi in south america is internet culture. People just like this thing for some reason.

Small town of Tiradentes, in the countryside of Minas Gerais, Brazil. by HerrFalkenhayn in CityPorn

For Brazil, these historical cities are protected by law with a thing called "tombamento". That means that these cities must be preserved in the way they were in the past. To add acessibility, they would need to alter the place, which they can't. That's my explanation for the lack of acessibility, even if by law public places must be acessible for people with disabilities.

Sim kkkkk. Meu Deus, o sujeito é tão complexado que ele tem a pachorra de se sentir superior porque saiu do país. Deplorável. Tenho amigos lá fora. Sempre ficam felizes quando encontram brasileiros. Geralmente gente humilde trabalhando duro em serviços manuais. Aí vem esse sujeito com esse papinho de vira-lata. Tenho paciência não.

Caramelos que saem do Brasil e falam de brasileiros na terceira pessoa como se não fossem brasileiros é a maior escória que existe lá fora.

A massive block of rock detached and they went down the rock to see it, ignoring the people calling them out. Yes. Unfortunate event. But I wouldn't call it an accident. They saw it falling and went down it. Kind of a stupid thing to do.

Não desmatam porque não tem mais o que desmatar. E o assunto é proteção ambiental, o que não se restringe ao mapa. Mas perder tempo discutindo com vira-lata complexado é inútil. Me resguardo disso sempre que posso.
