    Unhappy 200 feared dead in Brazil mudslide

    That is one HUGE drink!
    (just kidding, I feel horrible about the whole thing)


    NITEROI, Brazil - They are all gone. The Evangelical church where worshippers were praying. A daycare center where kids were playing. The pizza parlor where a family was eating.
    All were buried under a mountain of mud, garbage and stone when yet another landslide hit metropolitan Rio de Janeiro late Wednesday. This one swept through the Morro Bumba slum, engulfing as many as 200 people and 60 homes. Nothing was left behind but a massive crater of blackened, sodden earth and the remnants of flimsy brick shacks.
    "I had just picked up my 10-year-old son from the day care. We walked down the hill to the street, and within 10 minutes, my community collapsed," said Patricia Faria, 28, crying as she watched heavy machinery dump the remains of her life into a waiting truck. "All I have left is what you see on me — and my son. Thank God, I have my son."

    Agreed. It's really not at all funny.
    Horrific is more like it.
    Can you imagine dying in a mudslide?
    Losing your family in one?
