Bolsonaro’s tribute to Covid victims

Never has the expression “stranger than fiction” made more sense than when the president of the Brazilian Tourism Board went live on Facebook, with Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro, to play Ave Maria on the accordion in honor of Covid19’s victims.

Bolsonaro has been a covidiot since the very beginning of the pandemic, so at this point it’s hard to be surprised by anything he does or says.

So, we thought!

This time, Bolsonaro had his Tourism Board President show up to play the accordion (very poorly) and then leave without saying one word. It was one of the weirdest things we’ve ever seen.

I mean, it would be weird enough if it was just some random guy doing this on YouTube but this is the president of a country?!

How low can this guy go, is the only question at this point.

The amount of cringe in this video is surreal.

Palm Beach County residents warn of satanism, death & pedophilia as they spoke against the mandatory use of masks.

(Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of requiring face masks to be worn inside public buildings to help prevent the spread of Covid19.)

After watching this we don’t know if we wanna laugh (this seems like something straight out from the show “Parks and Recreation”), cry or feel scared for the mental health of these folks.

Post-vote video reaction below:

Security camera footage shows the moment when an Air Canada plane nearly landed on four fully loaded airplanes lined up on a taxyway on July 7, 2017.

In the aftermath of this incident the National Transportation Safety Board found some issues with the flight crew (fatigue during the flight and that the first officer was twice rejected in his application for promotion) but also that another pilot landing at San Francisco International Airport that night, complained about construction lights, which were overly bright and therefore made it difficult to find the proper runway.

According to aviation experts this close call could have easily led to one of the worst aviation disasters in history, as the fully loaded planes were carrying upward of 1,000 passengers.

Since dashcams have become widespread, we’ve been gifted with many traffic incidents videos on YouTube.

I don’t think there has been someone quite as lucky as this guy though.

There have been quite a lot off road dramatic events being captured as well, such as the Chelyabinsk meteor:

Or the TransAsia Airways Flight 235, which crashed into the Keelung River shortly after takeoff.
