Re: The Trump Administration

So, CNN was banned from Venezuela and the White House in the same week. Interesting symmetry ;-) There are too many parallels between Trumpism and Chavismo already. Coincidence does not imply causation, nor 'symmetry' (by that, I assume you imply the same causation). If you believe that, then you p...

Re: The Chile Eclipses Thread

Put your city in this page and check if you can see the eclipse: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/ I can't unfortunately :-( it's only in the very southern hemisphere.

Re: Nice scam with DHL / Aduanas in Santiago

Ehhh. Maybe not. This is from Investopedia.com: "Cost, Insurance and Freight CIF and Free on Board FOB are international shipping agreements used in the transportation of goods between a buyer and a seller. The specific definitions are different for every country, but CIF and FOB have similar ...

Re: Nice scam with DHL / Aduanas in Santiago

What I understand is that the value they consider to determine whether they assess any duty at all and whether you need a customs broker is the sum of the value+freight+insurance. Not sure if this translates to paying duty on freight. Yes I believe it does. Customs add up all the costs involved in ...

Re: iphone options for travel in Chile?

The WOM SIM works in the iphone5s. The WOM card I bought at the mall in Puerto Montt could not get activated at the mall so i went to the WOM store a couple blocks from the mall. I get a good signal in Puerto Montt and Ancud. No signal from WOM at my property. I also signed up for the ATT $10/day p...

Re: The Trump Administration

Your fellow occupiers certainly jumped all over the opportunity. Troll. I guess it takes one to know one. If your only contribution to the thread is to call people names, I'm afraid you've come empty-handed to a battle of wits. Nice cherry picking. And your continued hypocrisy, and own belligerance...

Re: A US-born NASA scientist was detained at the border until he unlocked his phone

I think EEUU said it about the same endless arguments from the same members. This news piece was put it in a separate thread just because he was flying from Chile. I wouldn't even bring it in other case, there is too much US-centered content on the Internet in the last year. We're on the same page,...

Re: A US-born NASA scientist was detained at the border until he unlocked his phone

Sick of this spam political debate fucking up all the threads. Yeah I know. Maybe there should be a USA! USA!! thread for all this stuff. How on Earth did the US constitution get into a thread about a guy unnecessarily giving access to his phone to CBP? BTW, that guy was plain stupid, he should be ...

Re: The Trump Administration

Here's a nice short comparison of Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama: Ronald Reagan: -gave amnesty to illegal immigrants -negotiated with terrorists (traded arms for hostages with Iran) -raised taxes on a large scale four times (after initially lowering them) -negotiated with the “evil empire” without p...
