    It would be easier to throw her into the Baia de Guanabara, and make her drink some of that nice, clean, unpolluted water.....

    For those of you who are dissatisfied at the idea of having to receive your news of Brazil via a British government run propaganda site relief is at hand:

    Not very clever are you? You only have to look at the date to see that it is American. UK date 02/08/2016 and US 2016/08/02 of course the Americans are backward as is their wont.

    Hi Hep, how's your theory about the UK being a 'royalist theocracy' getting on?

    You remember - where you took notes in your history lesson then couldn't read them and came up with the astonishing 'second right of kings' concept.

    Well, Hippy, if you are one of those who depend on MP (hardly a communications giant), for your news on Brazil, that is your problem...
    On the other hand, it would seem that your lack of knowledge on what's happening in LatAm is not MP's fault - it's yours.

    That's not an American date. US dates are middle-endian which is why they look so weird. Using year-month-day aka big-endian is logical on a computer as then files sort correctly.

    It is a US website though. Is that supposed to be a problem?

    What's this 'Royalist Theocracy'' theory? Sounds entertaining :)
