Confederation Cup
« on: June 20, 2013, 11:37:28 am »
Do you guys like soccer/football? Do you know about the Confederation Cup happening in Brazil? If you guys have some knowledge about this I'll give more details, but for now...



Things here are not good at all :) (although REVOLUTION is a little too strong)

Good...but I think you kind of didn't understand me... Okay, perhaps you understand now?



The football here is the problem, not a good thing :P.

What is this, Brazil's Las Vegas? (And no, I don't mean that it'd be a casino city but adults' playground, if you know what I mean; spend lots of money on something purely cosmetic.)

I also don't know the meaning of something "purely cosmetic". Lack of vocabulary, sorry.

Okay, so my guess was not that wrong(I thought it was something similar), but I still can't relate with the topic/picture at all  :).

Well... If this football cup thing is about spending money on something that's not really benefitting the average worker, then it's kinda like the Luxor of Las Vegas; an eye-candy black pyramid that's in fact a luxurious hotel. But how does it benefit a person who's just trying to earn a basic living? Not in any way at all.

Hopefully this cleared it up... And hope I got this thing right.

Perfectly right :P. And here I thought that I already could understand you almost 100%. Ah...I need more training.

Yeah, that's what happening here. The government is using billions and billions to make stadiums and to fill their pockets (pocket money...Haaaaaa  :D :D!) while most brazilian people (that are something like average poor) are getting more dumb and dying, because there isn't good public schools and hospitals here.

Brazil is very known as a "beautiful country" especially if you focus on Rio de Janeiro the "Marvelous City" or whatever it's called by the other countries. This is not true at all  :P. If you are thinking to visit Brazil because of the World Cup, think twice. This is for your sake mainly, because many tourists are getting stolen and in danger, because our security also sucks.

I like to think that no-one would recommend foreigners to visit their country. Why? Well, if we live on some certain place for years, we'll eventually grow tired of it. For instance, I'd say that although we have a quite good social security here in Finland, there's NOTHING to see here; which is kinda the opposite to Brazil where there's lots to see and plenty to be pickpocketed.

But God did bless us one perfect continent to visit; North America, and therein the States. Ah, flame me or not, but I'm very much into Americanism. There's a little bit of all countries in the world there, on different states. That can't possibly go wrong... ;p

Alright back to work.
