    I find it interesting, that Canada, whose place on the list Brazil now takes, has a fifth of Brazil's population. Hmmm...

    I have nothing to do with Canada. Canada is your problem.

    Brazil is getting better every day and that's what makes me happy.

    Math isn't your strong suit, is it Brasso? You have barely reached the economic level of a country that has a fifth of your population. It's rather obvious that YOU have the problem... :)

    And you have another. Do you want the number of the police report that was registered against you?

    The Federal Police Chief assured me that he would find out your name and alert all ports and airports in Brazil.

    He told me that your name (imoyaro) means “potatoes” in

    “The Federal Police Chief assured me...”

    Yes, I'm sure, Brasso, and your rudimentary use of a translator does not express the meaning of the word, which is a pejorative, so obviously I don't care about being called an insult. I have no doubt that in reality, talking to the police is the last thing you would ever willingly do, as it would draw attention to your “activities.” ;)

    I even think you're right about my uselessness in the English language. But, I try to be persistent.

    Most likely the Police Chief has many tribulations. I'll be one more. With persistence.

    This is the same channel you threatened me with.

    Apologize and say you're sorry. At least five lines. You don't need to praise me. Just give your best wishes to Brazil.

    Five lines and 40 words. Only.

    Brasso, I posted the name of a unit of the NKVD known as “Smersh Spionam.” No doubt, as a spy who is a fluent Russian speaker, you find the revelation that somebody knows what you are up to be quite threatening. :)

    We are giants. In Norse mythology (fear of Russia) we destroy everything. It must have been Ivan.

    Russia is a country full of scars. It was the most invaded country in the world. Vikings, Byzantines, Tartars, Mongols, Teutons, Prussians, French, English, Germans, Turks...etc etc.

    We are giants. 17 million kilometers of beautiful women, strong men, a vibrant economy, cutting-edge technology and a military that would make any Western soldier cringe with fear.

    And that. It's just that you're too stupid to write five lines. Just that.

    So, the 9th biggest economy today and the 7th biggest polluter today.

    Also the 4th biggest polluter historically.

    As such a big polluter Brazil can expect to be paying a significant amount into the UN 'loss and damage' fund.

    Why should Brazil get richer when everyone gets the pollution, eh?

    ”He told me that your name (imoyaro) means “potatoes” in”

    ‘by his nickname imoyaro, which could best be translated as “potato bastard”.’

    I’ll be a little more complimentary, as I will always think of you as Mr Potato-Head.

    Fair enough. Etymologically, in the days when Tokyo was Edo, the term “imoyaro,” made up of “imo” a Japanese sweet potato used for making shochu, and yaro, which means more like “jerk” but is now a bit more acerbic, was applied to anyone from outside the capital. As I am not from Tokyo, it applies... ;)
