    Okay, okay. My source at the moment is a text in Portuguese, and the worst kind, brazilian portuguese*.

    This week, another swindler was discovered in my country.

    Bel Pesce
    [​IMG]

    She was said to have 6 degrees from MIT. She claimed to have worked for Google, Microsoft, as leader in several projects. She claimed to found several successful companies.

    And so she earn money as a speaker in Brazil. Just as a former president of ours who hopefully will be arrested in this year!

    She appeared in several TV shows, radio, interviews and lectures including TED, and not only that, she's newspaper business consultant from largest radio channel and TV in Brazil: she works for CBN from the Globo Networks!

    Heavy Stuff!

    But I would like to keep the nice weather this topic. And so I will list some of the other famous charlatans who heard throughout life.

    Omar Khayyám
    [​IMG]

    Real name: Alexandre Selva Neto <he has lived or live in my town.>

    He claimed to have over 100 doctoral theses, he claimed to have been nominated for three Nobel prizes, he claimed to have nearly 100 years, he was said to have advised in time of doubt three different popes!

    He was interviewed by major newspapers and taken seriously, including being interviewed by the largest brazilian program interview at the time, Jô Soares.

    Marcelo Nascimento da Rocha
    [​IMG]

    The funniest of the three. His story is huge. He pretended to be so many people lifelong and deceived so many people that it is even difficult to summarize.

    He when imprisoned deceived the other inmates as head of other criminal organizations and command a prison during a riot. He at parties pretended to be the son of the greatest entrepreneurs of the country, he came to dating the most beautiful women, giving interviews and even make people travel for free on airline company that he has never been owner!

    He did not finish the fifth grade of elementary school.

    His life became a book, film and documentary. All are recommended, unfortunately, all in portuguese.

    Some sources

    * I even tell to my compatriots, if it is written in portuguese does not deserve to be known. All the important, right, valid and true things are written in english.

    Share with us the greatest scoundrels of your country!

    ** Three international I know: Frank Abagnale Jr., Uri Geller and Peter Popoff.

    *** Just to make it clear. I have nothing against the free religious manifestation of anyone. But when a charlatan makes use of the pure faith of the people, he needs to be recognized as the bad guy is.

    cheers

    Abraham Lincoln said,
    You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

    But that's not the best way of putting it. In actual fact,
    You can fool an awful lot of people for an awful long time.

    You need to read this about that quote.

    "You can fool an awful lot of people for an awful long time."
    In reality you are fooling quite a small amount, there are nearly 8 billion people on Earth !

    I am afraid including Omar Khayyám only says something about yourself. You are the kind of very wise person, who finds someone at youtube who has the same believes as you do, which proves you both are right? :rofl:

    The wold needs more of your kind.... :suicide:

    It's funny how nobody seems to like either of the two presidential candidates, yet each of them was chosen over all rivals in the preliminaries.

    By this logic, the less liked of the two will be elected president.

    Why do you always have to come up with some facts, when everybody already has an opinion?

    The interesting part of this sordid story is, that there sems to be a tendency growing all over the world in democracies, that people are simply fed up with the human garbage that sems to be the only thing that becomes politicians nowadays.
    In Europe, Spain and Belgium cannot come up with any government after several elections. In France you have two fascists, lePen against Sarkosy, in Italy an actual professional Clown is in charge, in Germany an unprofessional, unfunny clown is in charge and everything is norw so f**ked up, that no one wants to run against Merkel, afraid to win, and then have to clean up the mess that retarded woman will be leaving behind.

    But of course first prize goes to that exemplary country with its american exceptionalism....

    @The bigot Mann: How you could even have the nerve to make a post like this is beyond common sense and reason.

    If you're going to foster an opinion about something, the facts help keep things on the up-and-up. But in your case, you don't need facts. Your stupid, offensive joke shows that you require nothing but your own hatred to stay warm at night.

    You're a dinosaur. The world has no room for bigots, whether it be political or racial. When will disgusting people like you learn that isolation and bigotry are -not- the way to stop what's going on in the world?

    That's my opinion, btw. Your actions in this forum have shown it to be factual.

    Those pesky facts keep standing in the way of my bigotry. :laie:

    MIchaela, two small suggestions...

    If you intend to keep on reading my commentaries, I suggest you always check out "Sarcasm" or "irony" beforehand to remind you that what is meant may be a little differnet from what you interpret intop it..
    The other, almost more important thing is, that you ought not to mistake your gooody-goody person wishful thinking with the real existing world.

    "The world has no room for bigots, whether it be political or racial." Of all the childish nonsense one has plenty of opportunity to marvel about in these threads here, that one has to take the cake.

    I do not mind, feel free to see the world through your rosy glasses, I live far away from places where you do-gooders have made it possible for the democratic process to degenerate, so only elections between the the Tumps and the Hilarys of the world are left.

    Greetings, from the beaches of the world.... :tea:

    If you quote me, you're inviting me to respond to your post. Granted, most people will respond to you by calling you an angry, arrogant prick.

    Besides... I like my rose-colored glasses. They allow me to look past my own preconceived notions.

    One question: Who is Tump? :dunno:

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    The heart of this topic is to laugh at the scoundrels who betray the country and ourselves. It does not have any fun when we point the fingers at others here.

    Let's get back to the original focus: let's look to have a great laugh at the end.

    peace'n'cheers!
