bluenovaman: Holy shiat! Most of my family is from there. I've been in that gym too.
Time to call and make sure my cousins are all Ok.

The codes there are practically nonexistent.

This is why regulation is necessary.

I hope your cousins are safe.

Thank you. Now people won't think I'm just "being mean".
Americans get the tourist commercial vision of Brazil and very few ever look past that. It's a third world country that's trying to do better.

Hope your cousins are OK.


Thank God they are, sadly I'm sure some distant family was in there. My family was one of the founding families there. I'd call that area more 2nd world due to the progress made, but it is still a shiathole in a lot of places.

But that would be an infringement of first amendment rights; the right of expression.

Therefore, do nothing.

If your favorite band is a one-armed Mongolian who atonally throws discarded batteries against overstretched rubber cargo tie-downs while reciting "Mr. Belvedere" scripts with the punctuation removed and he only plays "pop-up" gigs in the kitchens of abandoned Arthur Treacher's franchises, you can be fairly sure your life will be panicked-trampling resistant.

Are you saying they went communist because of improvements, or they made improvements because they went communist?


Communist? You doctors always get the best drugs...

The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles. Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as Communistic by its opponents in power? God forbid the country not be a completely "free" country like your Somalian ideals.

That's trappedspirit for you. He lives to talk about how people who are different from him are inferior and deserve painful deaths. I guess it helps with the self-loathing. Crowing about actual painful deaths is kinda new for him, though. Maybe he's branching out.

badhatharry: This is scary. Always scope the out exits. I try not to be too far from them in a crowded building.


The exits were, of course, locked by the doormen.

In Brasil you don't pay till you leave, so the doormen thought it was "just" rioting, and locked the doors to prevent people from leaving without paying.

If you're going to quote Wikipedia, how about you quote the entire paragraph instead of just the part that supports your side??

Link :

The second world refers to the former communist-socialist, industrial states (formally the eastern bloc), the territory and the influence of Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. During the second world war, there were nineteen communist countries; after the fall of the Soviet Union, only five communist countries remained: China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea and Vietnam. Along with "First World" and "Third World", the term was used to divide the nations of Earth into three broad categories. In other words, the concept of "Second World" was a construct of the Cold War and the term has largely fallen out of use since the revolutions of 1989, though it is still occasionally used to describe countries that are in between poverty and prosperity, many of which are communist and former communist countries today. Subsequently, the actual meaning of the terms "First World" and "Third World" changed from being based on political ideology to an economic definition (see the terms developed country and developing country). This might also cause semantic variation of the term between ascribing a region's political entities and its people
It would appear that bluenovaman was just trying to point out that this part of Brazil is slightly less of a shiat hole than the rest of the country.

Jesus,...

Yes, but I will guarantee you that the Staples Center isn't insulated with flammable material and that they didn't set off fireworks next to it.

It's one thing to do it in a sports arena, it's another to do it in a regular sized building.

That's all true. But if (god forbid) something did somehow go wrong and a big ire did break out... I mean, we are squeezed in there like sardines on the main dance floor, especially at midnight.


Try not going to dumb shiat raves and listening to shiatty music. It can save your life.

If there is any silver lining, I hope this results in better building and fire codes in Brazil.

I always try to stay aware of a way out in any crowd, but when you're in a nightclub at 3 am and the drinks and drugs are flowing, you tend to get lost in the moment.
