    Where's Dog Dildo © 2013 Simon68 when he’s needed most to bring a note of jollity to the proceedings? Perhaps he can loan Dilma his bitcoin but I suspect her likely retort of “it’s too fucking small you wanker” might prove a little off-putting if you know what I mean, nod-nod-, wink-wink.

    Ha, ha, ha.

    40 billions USD we import of oil to thermeletric dam. In 2014 level water reservatory is better (more rains). 87% of our energy matrix is hidro.

    Right = Brazil surrenders
    Left = Brazil dominates

    Your money is bad!
