Re: Chile's Same-Sex Civil Unions Bill Gets Final Approval

Why in the hell would Chile decide to allow these biological error perverts to have these rights is mind boggling. Homosexuals need to be isolated from the rest of humanity and left to die off without the possibility to influence our children with their abominable sexual preferences. Homosexuals su...

Re: Chile's Same-Sex Civil Unions Bill Gets Final Approval

Bravo Chile..... Does it give any immigration rights? Sure, why not.....and also breakfast in bed. Nope not looking for breakfast in bed, even from you Gloria, although maybe if you wore something fetching, lol...... Heterosexual couples get immigration rights to sponsor a spouse (it appears to cut...

Chile's Same-Sex Civil Unions Bill Gets Final Approval

Bravo Chile.....
So, has anyone here actually read this final bill? Since it's not a "full rights" marriage bill...what is missing? Does it give any immigration rights?

Arica restaurants

I did a search but nada....
I'm wondering about the restaurant scene in Arica. Could someone tell me if there are any good Italian and Japanese restaurants and how many?
Thanks.

Re: Ball Bearings

Yes, ball bearings are available in a multitude of pastel colors and can add that little extra something special to accent an evening gown or other formal attire. Fantastic! Now if there were only a good sprocket store I would be all set. Well, not "all set" I would still be in need of a good flang...

Re: Ball Bearings

I really like ball bearings and would love to see this thread go on for pages.
Can I get colored ball bearings in the many special ball bearing stores in Chile? I have never seen a ball bearing store. Are they large stores?

Re: NSA: A little present from Big Brother for Christmas

I think the Inspector General of the NSA's job description probably states among its most important duties is to; uncover problems and then inspect them. If the problems uncovered are routine problems then move on to uncovering and inspecting additional routine problems until you find a non-routine ...

NSA: A little present from Big Brother for Christmas

The NSA provides a list of the times it has "wrongly" spied on you during the first quarter of 2013: http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/25/7449251/nsa-incompetent-spying-christmas-newsdump My favorite line from the NSA is: "The problems uncovered were routine," according to NSA/CSS Office of the Inspec...

Re: Thanks!

Well, I remember reading this when it was originally posted and thinking it was slightly humorous and wouldn't work well in the States. Now that I have seen the picture that goes with it I'm afraid I'm not that totally appalled but I am fearful that I will not be able to remove that image from my he...

Re: Reese's PB Cups cheaper than the States

At the local supermarket, a huge supply of 4 packs of this candy. I am by nature anti-sugar and processed crap but I just had to buy some (been a very very very long time) at the price of $1.390. For a 36 pack on Amazon price is 0.69¢ per 1.5 oz.package with no shipping. 0.69¢ x 4 = $2.76 x 611 CLP...

Re: walking a dog in the city

Street dogs are not a problem unless you are walking a bitch (canine) in heat. Street dogs know how to share the space in order to survive in the city. What you have to watch out for are the pampered pets who suddenly shoot out a gate or the owners walking a pampered pet off the lead. For those you...
