"Must kill strange metal bird!"...

Just when you thought the world had shrunken to its smallest possible proportions and there was no place left on Earth left uncorrupted by the scourge of modern culture the BBC has reported that an as-yet totally uncontacted tribe of indigenous peoples has been documented living in Brasil's dense rainforest. We're officially packing our bags and moving there tomorrow. The sad reality, however, is that these incredible people will probably be photographed drinking Coke, listening to iPods and wearing T-shirts tomorrow. Meanwhile, HAVE A LOOK:ISOLATED TRIBE SPOTTED IN BRASIL
One of South America's few remaining uncontacted indigenous tribes has been spotted and photographed on the border between Brazil and Peru. The Brazilian government says it took the images to prove the tribe exists and help protect its land. The pictures, taken from an airplane, show red-painted tribe members brandishing bows and arrows. More than half the world's 100 uncontacted tribes live in Brazil or Peru, Survival International says. Stephen Corry, the director of the group - which supports tribal people around the world - said such tribes would "soon be made extinct" if their land was not protected. Disease is also a risk, as members of tribal groups that have been contacted in the past have died of illnesses that they have no defense against, ranging from chicken pox to the common cold.
