There's a Town in Brazil With Nothing But Women . . . And They Need Single Men

Aug 28, 2014 -- 4:58am

 There's a small town in southeast Brazil called Noiva do Cordeiro that's incredibly unique.  The entire population is WOMEN.   About 600 women live there, and most of them are under 35.  (The town's pronounced Noi-ay-va doo cord-AIR-oh.)

It was founded by a woman in 1891 after the Catholic Church excommunicated her for leaving her husband.  Then she took in OTHER women who were kicked out of their towns, like prostitutes.

That's how the tradition started anyway.  These days, men are basically BANNED . . . there are a few husbands, but they're only allowed in town on weekends.  And sons are sent away at 18.

So the women run everything . . . and one woman there says, quote, "it's prettier, more organized, and far more harmonious than if men were in charge."

There's only one problem.  A lot of the women are single and lonely . . . so they're considering opening up the town to men for the first time ever.

A 23-year-old woman says, quote, "The only men we single girls meet are either married or related to us, everyone is a cousin.  We all dream of falling in love and getting married, but we like living here and don't want to have to leave."

Aug 27, 2014 -- 4:50am

 We've got a new list here that ranked all 50 U.S. states by their beer.  And if you're thinking, "Um . . . I'm pretty sure every state has Miller High Life so I'm not sure how you can rank them" . . . this list probably isn't for you.

The list doesn't use any real scientific criteria . . . it's just a few experts arguing over which states make a lot of excellent craft beers. 

The top 10 are:  Oregon . . . California . . . Colorado . . . Michigan . . . Washington . . . Vermont . . . Wisconsin . . . Pennsylvania . . . New York . . . and Massachusetts.

On the other end, Mississippi came in last, just below West Virginia and Rhode Island.

Florida came in 17th place!  Read all about it and get the FULL list here:
