AverageAmericanGuy: LOL 'fortnight'.

Welcome to the 21st century, Britain. We have the metric system now.

Yes, because our division of the year into 52 weeks (plus a handful of days, plus the 1/4 of a day for leap year) is underlain by the precision of the metric system. Truly, you have exposed Britain as the island of fools we all knew it to be.

huh. apparently the reasons are "manifold"....perhaps too exhaustive to list?

and they have apparently been "riven" by the violence... well, im a bit puzzled too...

/yes, i know, they were valid uses of the words in context

OK, I hate to be 'that guy'*, but 10 per day is a raw number that is meaningless without knowing the population of Sao Paulo. The correct number to use is the rate per 100,000 or 1,000,000 population for comparison purposes.

*Who the fark am I kidding? I love to be that guy.

I went through a period where I went to those websites like that shows some pretty awful stuff (don't judge) and Brazil by FAR had the most gruesome murders ever. It's like anarchy there, people gutted by machetes in the street, tied up and skinned alive, just horribly brutal stuff.
Every since, Brazil has been on my list of 'never going there' places.

That's one in 1.1 million if you're talking municipality, 2,000,000 if metro. DRTFA so I'll be back to crunch more numbers.

10 people per day x 49 days = 490 people

982 + 490 =1470

Another year, another bloody quota met.
