  1. [Updated] Brazilian Town Run Entirely By Women Now Looking For Single Men

    Don't mess this up, dudes. They've got a good thing going.

    Hey fellas! How would you like to live somewhere that's been run entirely by women since 1891? Because Noiva do Cordeiro, a rural town in the scenic hills outside Belo Horizante, Brazil, is looking for volunteers. Just follow every single one of their rules, and don't make any stupid jokes about "Death by Snu Snu." They probably won't like that very much.

  2. New Species of Wacky Monkey-Porcupine Hybrid Discovered In Brazil

    It has a fancy name, but we're going with "monkey-pine."

    Biologists from the Federal University of Paraíba in Brazil have discovered a new species of porcupine that - to the uninitiated - basically just looks like an amazing, pug-nosed, spiky monkey.

  3. Edward Snowden Masks Donned By Brazilian Protesters And Senators

    E For EdSnowdendetta, coming to theatres everywhere

    Move over, Guy Fawkes. The new face of resistance to government authority is NSA leaker Edward Snowden, and we have the creepy masks to prove it. In Brazil, activists opposed to the NSA's spying programs made masks of Snowden's face, and like-minded senators borrowed them to wear to a hearing.

  4. Om Nom Nom: Watch as This Sinkhole Completely Devours a Car [Video]

    From the first few frames of this video, you can tell that something has gone wrong with the car being filmed, though it takes our intrepid videographer a little while to get to the bottom of exactly what happened. What happened seems to be a sinkhole opening in a Brazilian road and swallowing an automobile whole like an enraged mud elemental. For those of you who can spare 3 full minutes of your Friday afternoon to watch this hatchback be claimed by the proud and ingenious mole men who dwell just beneath out feet, we fully recommend watching the entire thing, for the sake of context and narrative. If you're busy folk like us, though, feel free to skip to about 1:30 to see the real fun begin as the hole widens and a full-sized automobile does it's best impression of a Hot Wheels car being flushed down the toilet by a toddler. Bye bye, car!

  5. Snake-Like Amphibian Found In Brazil Is Extremely Rare, Makes Us Blush

    Last year, the Madeira River in Rondonia, Brazil was drained for a hydroelectric dam. At the very bottom, were six of these creatures, writhing about looking like penises, except that they're all about 30 inches long. Now, biologists have confirmed that they are Atretochoana eiselti, an extremely rare species of caecilian with no known living population.

  6. Rumor: Newest Sony PlayStation 3 Model Outed by Brazil

    Recent filings with the Federal Communications Commission alerted hawk-eyed watchers to the existence of a new model of PlayStation 3: The "CECH-4001X." Up until now, however, it wasn't known exactly what kind of changes Sony would include in this new model. That's where Anatel, which is effectively the Brazilian version of the FCC, comes into play. Their own documents apparently included a series of images purported to be of this fantastical new design.

  7. Supersonic Fighters Shatter Every Window in Brazil’s Supreme Court Building

    So, let's say you're the nation-state of Brazil. And let's say that you're really keen on celebrating this year's exchanging of the national flag at the Praça dos Três Poderes in the capital city. Obviously you're going to need to have a sweet fly-over by some Mirage 2000 fighter jets. But what happens when you have those fighter jets go supersonic so low to the ground? The answer, after the break.

  8. DC Nation Shows How A Batarang Works, Brazilian Batman Simply Works

    Elsewhere on the internet

    Not too long ago, we brought you the story of the Brazilian Batman. At the time, we experienced a mix of awe and worry for retired soldier  André Luiz Pinheiro. After all, taking on serious criminals, no matter what your training, is not a safe job. But thanks to a new BBC report, we've discovered Pinheiro has it a bit easier than we originally thought. He's scaring the crap out of kids. After you give that a look, hit the jump and see if Batman's famous batarangs could work when thrown in the real world by an expert.

  9. Brazilian Batman Battles Baddies For The Boys In Blue (For Real)

    Today is a Good Day For Someone Else To Die

    I've often remarked on how surprised I am that no one has actually taken up the mantle of Batman yet to fight crime in our world. Sure, we've seen real-life heroes acting like Batman (but in plain clothes) and people walking around pretending to be Batman (in costume) but no one has actually been the Dark Knight. That is, until now. This is the true story of a Brazilian man who's been asked by local police to help them fight crime, as Batman.
