Re: Argentina power outage

For those that were here, think about after the 2010 earthquake. Most of Chile, even close to the epicenter, still had electricity. It was not until many hours later that they took regional grids partially offline for safety checks and repairs. I think we lost electricity in Temuco around 10 a.m. th...

You can not obtain RESIDENCY IN CHILE BY HAVING A BABY IN CHILE!!!!

I need to nip this "anchor baby" stupidity in the bud right now. Somewhere I am sure someone is running some sort of immigration scam telling people that this is possible, otherwise I would not be getting this flood of email related to people wanting to have "anchor babies" to obtain residency or ci...

Re: Coyhaique Most Polluted City in the Americas

I discovered my Toyota has a cabin filter. I bought an charcoal / arm and hammer cabin filter. Frigen magic when I drive through any area with wood smoke.

Now, once you step out of the car, a respirator and a space suit perhaps. :lol:

Re: Argentina power outage

FYI, my take on the NY times "revelation" regarding the russian grid is, what the hell has the NSA been waisting all its time and money on for 40+ years if it has not already breached the infrastructure of russia completly? spending billions of dollars, each, to kill a bunch of illiterate guys livin...

Re: Argentina power outage

cnn seems to be hedging, but still pushing the narrative that chile was down. look at the crazy ambiguity in this report: https://edition-m.cnn.com/2019/06/16/world/power-outage-argentina-uruguay-paraguay/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Famp.cnn.com%2Fcnn%2F2019%2F06%2F16%2Fworld%2Fpower-outage-argentina-...
