Brazil, a country known mainly as a gigantic soccer-dominating land mass, lost hard to Germany in Tuesday's World Cup game 7-1. Brazil hasn't lost a major event on their home turf since — wait for it — 1975. That's almost 40 years. That is insane.

In a pub for the World Cup. Not to watch the football, but because my type is either 'really sad Brazilians' or 'really happy Germans'

This is the worst tragedy to hit Brazil since millions of its citizens started living in slums with no electricity or running water.
