So I was (and will be) going to do this longass tl;dr post about Brazil, their reputation and discourse and it would be full of nerdrage and geekiness and omg-die-Brazilness, but now I'm not. For this small mercy (XP), you can thank Germany, who blew me away with such awesomeness I had to say something about it immediately.[Also posted at allangtegek.]
Had to, y'all. They made me!
