Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

As a Russian, I'd rather stay in my house for a few more years than get a vaccine made in Russia. Especially considering they rushed it out of the desire to prove to the world that Russian science still counts for something.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

SpaceCat, the El Pais article was really interesting to me. Thanks for posting the link. You are welcome! with good ventilation and lots of sun, 1 hour max in a public space. Yeah, also I believe places like malls or supermarkets aren't that bad when not crowded: high ceilings, good air circulation...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

My theory so far that the south is doing so bad compared to the rest of the country because it's still too cold to open the windows but warm (and dry!) enough to push people to be more socially active. Here's a nice article showing how infection rates change when windows are open: A room, a bar and ...

Capital owners love cheap and atomized labor. The whole "right-wing is against immigration" is just for show.

Re: llamica Pellet stoves

No option to buy pellets in Valdivia right now. Actually, plenty of options but you have to monitor arrivals in Facebook groups about pellets (lol), also stores usually sell no more than 5 per person. Just got 30 bags for us and neighbors but we had to drive 50km to a saw mill. But yeah, walking in...

Re: Opening A Bank Account

I would like to not use the credit card at all because they charge 0.1UF monthly when it's being used but:
  • the debit one has CL$ 300,000 transaction limit
  • some services like Sura's "Seguro xKM" or Apple's App Store do not work with debit cards

Re: Let us write a constitution for Chile.

That’s kinda why it reminds me of the Brexit vote. The age correlation is where the similarities end. The article I linked compared it to Brexit and other big referendums in different countries and concludes that the Chilean case is very different from the usual 50/50 split in the society: Por ejem...

Re: Let us write a constitution for Chile.

Two extremely tribal sides fighting against each other This is not the case in Chile because Apruebo is strongly supported in all parts of society and Rechazo tends to correlate with age. En resumen, quienes se inclinan por esta opción son, en promedio, hombres y mujeres de clase más bien acomodada...

Re: Let us write a constitution for Chile.

The movement against a new constitution has done a survey, and it seems that they're losing by an 8% margin. That will happen only if all the Sipoapruebo memeing students will stay at home on the 25th. I've been following http://tresquintos.cl that combines all the available poll data and "Rechazo"...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

A cherry on top of all that: an Argentinian deputy started having sex (or was it just some heavy petting?) live on camera during the Congress' session in Zoom. 🙄

Who needs p0rn when you can watch the clusterfuck of Argentinian politics?

Re: 'paso a paso" rules for traveling between comunas... and related stuff

Nice, I was wondering how can I legally drive to Santiago to pick a police record from my consulate. It will be a long drive but I'd rather stay in a car for eight hours than be crammed in the tiny Valdivian airport, and then on a plane for a couple of hours in total.
