Favela Painting: Giving Pride to Brazil’s Poor Favela Painting: Giving Pride to Brazil’s Poor “I’ve never been to a museum in my life, and now I’m living in one,” said one of Brazil‘s poorest of her Vila Cruzeiro favela neighborhood.

A favela is a Brazilian shanty town that houses the city’s poorest citizens, those who cannot find gainful work or a proper home.

Via My Modern Met cole rise 5 Real Life Soldiers Who Make Rambo Look Like a Pussy We all understand that action movies are cheesy escapism. After all, could one commando really take out a whole compound full of bad guys? Actually, yes. #5. Who Was He? Simo Hayha had a fairly boring life in Finland. Since the majority of fighting took place in the forest, he figured the best way to stop the invasion was to grab his trusty rifle, a couple of cans of food and hide in a tree all day shooting Russians. Can you spot Hayha? Of course when the Russians heard that dozens of their men were going down and that it was all one dude with a rifle, they got fucking scared. They started by sending out a task force to find Hayha and take him out. Then they tried getting together a team of counter-snipers (which are basically snipers that kill snipers) and sent them in to eliminate Hayha. Over the course of 100 days, Hayha killed 542 people with his rifle. Finally on March 6th, 1940, some lucky bastard shot Hayha in the head with an exploding bullet. ...for about a week. #4. Exactly.
