Actually, a little part of Brazil is in the Northern Hemisphere.

Sorry, I didn't mean to bait anyone with the question. It was a rhetorical question. But, as wyokie pointed out its northern tip is at the equater which must mean that part of the country must be always warm. But I suspect the rest of the country is going through a cold spell because of summer solstice on June 21st.

yes you are. but only a tiny fraction of people live above the equator there so I fully retract my original statement of
"southern hemisphere ..."
and will go with
"primarily in the southern hemisphere ..."

Texas has a 16% positivity rate now. Hospitals are at full capacity and patients are showing up near death--they wait too long to go see a doctor.

I love maps too. Anytime there is an article in the paper, magazine or on the news but with no map I always try to remember to Google Map it to find out where it is that they're talking about.

Besides, Brazil has some really hot women down in the south, but probably not in the north?

too vague of a statement. wyokie may say they're literally 'hotter' :firedevil: in the north because they're closer to the equator.
