Re: Beds in Chile (Kings, Super Kings)

Personally, I am happy with almost any kind of bed, but not so with mi esposa ........ my wife has been consiste...

I am not sure who was stoned in that video, but someone was.
It was the horse, obvio :) Stupid animal. Like it never saw a man standing in the middle of the road. Or like it never was pulled by a car before.

Re: chile's migration crisis

Yeah, I wonder about the comfy US expats of the older baby boom or earlier era living off of SS. Won't be pretty. Might have to do a future airlift to the Empire in the midst of collapse and civil war. Not many of them here, I don't think. SS alone is just not enough to live passably well in Chile....

Re: Canada Just Officially Passed The Cannabis Act

Meanwhile, somewhere in Romania... I wonder if that's what's going to be happening in parts of Canada after the legalization. https://files.fm/u/t7gtj7ne#/view/video.mp4;play

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

Wiki says VZ oil is actually sour, not sweet. Most of it used to be sold to the US which has refineries specifically designed to deal with sour VZ oil and unable to accept sweet oil without major redesign. This is why the US can´t let VZ go - not only it is the closest major oil reserve geographica...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

I kinda think VZ problem is that it has about 10 billion USD cash coming every year in current account surplus. That´s a good chunk of money that the US financiers need to sustain their high valuations. Plus VZ is a perfect place to do all kinds of grey trading schemes, especially with the use of bl...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

However, I hope that Chile tries to get in on some Venezuelan oil. Prices just keep going up for bencina and diesel. Saw diesel over 700 clp yesterday Yeah some sweet Venezuelan stuff, rather than crap Iranian crude they got in August, where they managed to gas 1000 people and make them sick in Qui...
