CUANTO

George W. Bush is in his office. A stone-faced aide enters and says, `I have bad news, sir. Three Brazilian soldiers were killed this morning in Afghanistan.´ Bush goes pale and asks with hesitation, `How many is a brazillion?´

Stay frosty for a bit longer; typing on a Portuguese keyboard, an iPhone, or a knock-off $49 tablet all present unique yet approximately equally unpleasant challenges.

Thank god I did not come here for the nightlife, as Brasilia appears to have none.

    Dude, there's a restaurant called 'Fred'. You have to go there and report back. Gets good reviews too.

    Good lord! According to Playboy, there are several 6'3" brown, semi-naked women at every turn.

    OY,
    I didn't know you were still posting while on vacation.
    I checked here this morning, and saw the new short posts, and went, "D'OH!"

    Oh well.
    At least I spared the rest of the commenters here some of my endless word-turds, so you gave them a vacation from me!

    Enjoy the rest of your well-earned vacation!!!
    Stay thirsty, my friend.
    And, safe!

    Brasilia: hosting some of the finest concrete carbuncles in the world!

    Well you DID say you weren't going to have any fun there.

    An acquaintance that has been to both Brasilia and Canberra tells me that they are "sister cities" in a wicked way.

    Both were centrally planned by wishful architects and urban planners, that robs them of the natural disorder and anarchy of "natural" cities, which makes them both bland and soul-less.

    I've never been to either one, so whoever has, please comment on the accuracy of that statement.

    Don't you know everyone in Brazil is fucking all night long?

    One of my favorite jokes! I like a slightly different punch line, though:
    "How many zeroes are there in a brazillion?"

    God, I miss W sometimes. Never for more than a few seconds before I get pissed off again, but sometimes.
