Re: electric vehicles in chile

I went to one of the electric charging points on Copec's own map of them posted in my previous comment to find nothing there and workers confirming nothing there. I went back to the map and they've removed various points that were on there before including the ones needed to get to Concepcion. It lo...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

Turning into an interesting and useful thread. I did give a few very small loans to close family on my wife's side a few times like 5000 or 10,000. A few times I got it back, once or twice I didn't but they would do me some favours later and perhaps in an unspoken way it was a kind of compensation. ...

Just after the central part of the eclipse, with the uneclipsed moon starting to come back.

Re: Super Blood Wolf Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 20/21st

It was OK, very dark moon, by far less bright than usual, perhaps thousands of times less bright than a normal moon (?), even some of the stars looked brighter than the moon. It was quite red, especially around the edges, although some parts of it just looked dark. What was cool was when the regular...

Re: Super Blood Wolf Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 20/21st

Thanks for letting us know about this. OK, looks like the eclipse is from 23:36 to 04:48. However, the beginning and ends parts are only a partial eclipse. Times in Chile time here. Lunar eclipses can vary significantly depending on atmospheric conditions so this is hard to predict but in my previou...

Re: Super Blood Wolf Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 20/21st

I had a friend who was absolutely convinced of a certain prediction by Nostradamus of doomsday on a given date. We had a long conversation about it. This was many years ago when we were teenagers. He was pretty much convinced that there would be a nuclear war on a specific date, which I can't recall...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

As Shakespeare wrote," Neither a borrower nor a lender be ". I think I agree with Shakespeare here. I think public shaming might work. I think with facebook assuming it's just social contacts you could be more direct with the requests to pay the money back, perhaps even critical. But with Linked In...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

Make a record of all the information you can get about him and his friends and colleagues and work place, make a written backup record of everything that can see via Linked In and Facebook especially. This is so you still retain all this information if he starts trying to block you or getting his f...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

If it were me I would start turning up at his house and workplace unexpectedly, reminding him to pay me back on social media where everyone can see it, leaving messages with his friends and family to tell him to contact me to pay the debt, put the word about that he can't be trusted, and just keep p...
