Twitter Tuesday: Using your Head, Jesus Pizza, Improvised Roller Coaster, and more…

Time for another Twitter Tuesday, with the best tweets culled from the Brazilian internet since last week.

To start, this great video from one of our personal favorites, Tom Cavalcante:

Translation: Don’t make hasty decisions, use your head.

Let’s take these proceedings up a couple levels with this profundity from Brazilian philosopher Luiz Felipe Pondé:

And speaking of staying home…when the dollar is so high, many Brazilians look for creative alternatives to expensive trips to Disney. Like, for example…

Let’s finish things up with this beautiful picture and factoid from the Brazilian tourism agency:
