What's crazier is that Brasil has almost all of the "habitable" land of the continent, a great part of the other countries are the deserts, mountains and the antartic areas

Miami isn't the southern-most point of Florida though? And if you were going to measure the distance from Brazil to the United States, you should probably measure the distance to Puerto Rico instead, it's much closer.

Ok, 1 and a half minutes in and Suriname is pronounced SURI-nam. Plus Suriname has no roads leading outside the country. One has to take a ferry to Guyana and French Guiana, there are no roads anywhere close to the south near Brazil.

South America's Geography is weirder than you Think: There's no South American Continent, it's just One Big continent called America, but there was a coutry that stole the name of the continent. So, in order to get away with stealing the continent's name, they inventend that there is 2 separate continents (and doutrinated their children in classes), even tough Americo Vespucci was working by the portuguese and landed in Brazil. That's why the name AMERICA is in the southern part of the continent in the first maps, and the northern part has another name
