** Calling people by surnames is almost never indicative of being formal or polite. Most often, this happens because there are more people who go by the same given name, and surnames are used as surrogate names to avoid ambiguity when a nickname can't be earned.

** Crime has, however, been going down in almost all large cities. São Paulo, the largest city in the continent, no longer sends its inhabitants into fits of paranoid panic, and even Rio de Janeiro seems to be escaping this sad state at last, with a harsher security policy and expanding, more efficient police deployment in violent areas.

* Its excellent [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball football players]]. Brazil has won the FIFAWorldCup five times, more often than any other country. Pelé, who is known worldwide as perhaps the greatest football player ever, and who was elected the "Athlete of the Century" by the International Olympic Committee in 1999, is Brazilian.

* During the 2010 [[TheWorldCup FIFA World Cup]], a number of Brazilians started to [[Website/{{Twitter}} tweet]] "Cala Boca Galvao" ("Shut up Galvao") as a criticism of Brazilian commentator Galvão Bueno. Non-Portuguese speakers misinterpreted this as meaning "Save the Galvao" and assumed it was some sort of environmentalist campaign. Brazilians decided to perpetuate this misconception, up to MemeticMutation status, and spread rumors that Lady Gaga was releasing a song titled "Cala Boca Galvao".

*** A relatively new trend (mostly shared by poor families) is to give their children "exotic" names. Most consist of poorly spelled American names ([[XtremeKoolLetterz with as many double consonants, w's and y's as can be thrown in]]), but there are also the Brazilian and American celebrity stage names.

Brazilian law is alternately liberal and conservative: the death penalty is unconstitutional (except during warfare), but abortions are restricted; gun possession is regulated but more liberally than in European countries; same-sex marriage was legalized in 2013; and you get to go to special (much less screwed up) prisons if you've got a superior degree. Laws in Brazil change very slowly, as they have to move their way through Congress like molasses running uphill in July (which, of course, is winter in Brazil[[note]]Well, most of Brazil. But the parts where it's technically summer are equatorial and really don't count.[[/note]]). Also, while Brazil is a federal republic much like the US, the states have much more limited legislative powers, with federal laws taking precedence over state, and state over municipal. Judges generally have considerably more power to generate potentially insane judicial orders, however. In spite of that, Brazil is a civil law country, unlike the US. Interpretation of the law or judicial custom is not binding; only the written, stamped, signed law is binding.

** Flex-fuel cars were a big help in encouraging ethanol consumption instead of gasoline; the original ethanol-fueled cars took longer to "warm the engine" and be fully usable, something fuel-flex cars fixed by adding a second, smaller gasoline tank to start it.

** Flex-fuel cars were a big help in encouraging ethanol consumption instead of gasoline; the original ethanol-fueled cars engines took longer to "warm warm up. By 2003, when the engine" and be fully usable, something fuel-flex first flex-fuel cars fixed by adding a second, smaller were introduced, the electronics needed to make ethanol work perfectly had been developed, but perceived reliability of ethanol cars seemed beyond the possibility of recovery. Thus, even availability suffered, which didn't help. The possibility of using gasoline tank if worse came to start it.worse fixed both problems and turned out to bring about the renaissance of ethanol.
