Same with Denmark. We won a few sea battles here and there but have otherwise generally spent the last 500 years getting pounded by Sweden, Germany and England and becoming smaller and smaller. The rise of the EU is fortunate for Denmark because it has stopped our country from getting smaller.
But we can't be quite sure.

Great Britain invaded Buenos Aires twice(1806 and 1807), blocked with France the River Plate (1845) and Malvinas war (1982). So in direct military conflicts we are "winning" 3-1 :D
Indirectly they fucked up us since the beginning, with loans, external debt and taking down democratic governments to rise dictatorships.

Oops seems Hungary suspends and immigration rule. Let me guess: Some EU countries wanted to open Hungary even more to the immigration crisis they have. I'm not saying you have a good or a bad government, I'm just agree with the desition to stand against desitions that may not be satisfactory to you. Also unfortunatly the immigrants most of times suffers discrimination but this is not the point here.

What's happening in Brazil? Duplode? Leo?

Economic downturn + corruption scandals + a politically weak and generally adrift government => demonstrators and sectors of the opposition (*) crying "Impeachment!". That has been the default state of affairs since January, so there is nothing to be too overtly worried about (**).

(*) I'd rather say overexcited demonstrators and sectors of agitators within the opposition, but that's my own political slant, and so YMMV.

(**) Of course the three things I listed at the beginning are quite worrying. I just mean we are not at the brink of an institutional crisis or anything really serious like that.

Okay, thank you!

I get a lot of middle-aged, Brazilian tourists at the hotel, by the way, and they are the worst at speaking English. Most of them barely know "hello". They are also quite demanding, but not rude.
But we can't be quite sure.

https://foreignpolicy.com says this is a racist and stereotype map from China about Europe. I don't see any bad intention but a typical (and ancient) joke. There are many many jokes like this on internet to take this seriously.
First of all it's in english, so... I think they like to point China as an "evil enemy"... "my rich who makes me more rich evil enemy" :D.

Largely thanks to the threads here, I did bark "asshole" at the TV screen when Orbán showed up in the morning news today.
