Re: Red wine 'miracle ingredient' helps us stay young

Oh, great, now people can stop drinking wine "to be healthy" and just take resveratrol pills.

Re: Inequality in Chilean society breeds resentment

http://www.vox.com/2014/12/20/7423505/inequality-market-prices When economic inequality is really severe, using prices to regulate the distribution of scarce goods can be seriously unfair. At the same time, using non-price mechanisms can be seriously inefficient. That means that inequality is preven...

Re: Interesting, online poll over Pino minute of silence tif

Scandinavia is a pretty good example of Communist ideals implemented well - classless if not stateless, and they seem a model in so many ways. All the countries that have made a big deal of trumpeting communism as ideal have basically been run by corrupt megalomaniacs - that is not a shortcoming of...

Re: Ukraine DID shoot down MH17...

Does that mean that you'll change your russophobe stance and take seriously what a lot of Russians take seriously? :) A lot of Russians I know (including myself) take seriously the deeds of our government: the annexation, the war and the airliner tragedy. When US citizens critic US government's act...

Re: ATM fee

Throughly incorrect. Banco Estado has no Chile-side fee. Any fee you see is your bank's. I've used them for 8 years or so using a 1% card and a 0% card using real time checks. Also, any Chile-side fee is disclosed before you OK the transaction and is never a % but a fixed fee like $4000, $4500, etc...

Re: Ukraine pro Russia shot down Airliner

Haha. :D

I just recalled a great site that every lover of anti-Western-media and questioning-everything sources should read once a week:

They also have a poster to print and pin it to the wall.

Re: ATM fee

By the way, BancoEstado fee is 2%. It is shown only in statements, not on an ATM screen.

Ok, so the main choices of cat food here are: * Whiskas (poison) * Nestle Purina (can go to hell and feed hellcats) * IAMS (no opinion) * Royal Canin (Argentian one) * Hill's: regular and Vet Diet (not suitable for daily feeding) * and local brands (don't trust them) We switched to RC and hope Argen...

Re: Ukraine pro Russia shot down Airliner

Thought so. And about the vibe: look who's complaining now! If you thought so, why did you even ask? To say "thought so" and feel good? :D And I'm not complaining. It's not ok to start this kind of discussion in a thread about the catastrophe with 15 pages of arguments. My replies to this thread co...

Re: Expoweed

Yeah, it's absolutely not legal, even if you see dude in Santiago smoking it near the Zoo (we saw one).

It looks more like Canadian unwritten non-enforcement policy. But some of authorities still can try to punish you. And the cheapest punishment for a non-citizen is deportation.

Nope. I don't like overall vibe in this thread and I don't see a reason for bragging on a forum or sharing my future plans.
