    Hopefully, our Brazilian friends will get it right this time, and not allow their corporations that are illegally mining rivers for gold to massacre these people in true third-world shithole fashion:
    Brazil: Gold Miners Bragged About Killing Uncontacted Tribe

    Personally, I find the prospect of being on the first contact team, here, to be nearly as thrilling as the conceit of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    Normally of course its western companies like Rio Tinto that take part in the worst destruction of native tribes in the 3rd world away from most media attention.

    Fuck it blows me away that there is a possibility that these people have NO IDEA about anything outside there little section of forest.

    The whole fucking world is connected so surreal.

    Brazil is in the West. If you or anyone else want to debate the nuance of this, head here, or start some thread about it in the WR:
    http://forums.sherdog.com/threads/d...t-if-not-you-might-be-a-racist.3781949/page-4

    I put this thread in the Berry because it's just mindblowing to me how little awareness these people might have. Like...has a plane ever passed overhead before? What did they make of that? Did it become a myth? Do they draw pictures of it?

    Cue the opening scene from Into Darkness:

    Have you thought this through?

    First, they won't have bigger guns than me. Second, there's almost definitely no f**k scene at the end of any Aliens narrative that doesn't involve a probe and my anus. Meanwhile, the Brazilian tribe has that Witness taboo factor.

    yea its crazy. they might as well have passed through a time machine. and i would imagine that theyre very susceptible to disease from any one of us, just as the natives were at the start of the columbian exchange.

    surely they must have, and surely they must have incorporated it into their religion. how else could they absorb the information that there is giant flying shit out there that do not appear to be animals?

    have you ever seen this on netflix?

    F'ing crazy. some of this tribe end up being able to speak some spanish and such. they explain a lot of what they saw and believed while living isolated. crazy to think about.
