I've encountered the most uncanny sign of globalization. I was proctoring an exam, and I couldn't help but notice the eight familiar symbols of the Millennium Development Goals. I thought huh, maybe a donation or a branding initiative from UNDP. But then I saw the words and it was in Portuguese. I looked for clues of its origin and found a website address ending in .br. DOT.BR!
I'm really curious but not curious enough to break the silence of exams to ask her how she got the ruler, and now that I forgot her face so maybe I'll never find out.
UPDATE: SHE BOUGHT IT!!!!
