My daughter is 13 now and she's having one of those "I wanna be a baby again" phase, so she started hanging out more with her parents these days
We're in the midst of a heatwave, so we stay in the master bedroom, A/C running all the time.
I stay on the desktop, which has two screens. My daughter fell in love with that MasterChef cooking show, so she's watching all the episodes from season 1, on Youtube
She's now on season two and they have a chinese girl.
I usually don't pay much attention, but one thing I noticed was how Brazilians cry and lose their cool and temper so easily.
If they are chosen, they cry. If they lose, they cry. If a competitor uses their advantage and gives another competitor a hard task, they swear vengeance when they have the chance.
The Brazilians are constantly slicing their fingers and committing silly mistakes. They always forget an item or two, they drop the ingredients, they constantly have problems with the appliances because they don't pay attention. And they're ALWAYS complaining about the pressure, about how nervous they are, etc.
But the Chinese girl is on a whole different level. She's always focused, keeps her cool, never brags, keeps a low profile.
I was sure she was going to win, so I checked, she got 2nd place. She lost to Izabel, a girl who fucked up since the beginning. She cut her finger on the first test, then she forgot a small metal circle under a dessert after she served it.
I can imagine the Chinese girl did better, but knowing the retards in Brazil, they would bitch endlessly if she won.
And it's not only her. Other competitors who are foreigners, like an Israeli guy and a Italian also showed to be a lot more in control of their emotions.
Knowing Brazilians all my life, this wasn't a surprise, but seeing how much we lack in terms of self-control, really tells a lot.
So it's not hard to "understand" why we're such a fucked up country, where people kill for nothing and any sort of little problem becomes a huge obstacle to so much.
I've seen some people saying how they like Brazilians because they're a "warm and spontaneous people", but I'm guessing there's two sides to that.
