Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Seen some footage of presumbly a CS grenade, some projectile with white smokey trail, flying about six stories or higher over protestors in to the roof of Cine Arte Alemada which caught on fire the other day. Presumably an accidental round aimed too high as was very long range, could be a coincidenc...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Seeing as I am about a week away from finishing the process of being able to legally buy a firearm, I ought to point out that the law specifically prohibits cutting scoring or otherwise modifying ammunition to increase the lethality. Just sayin... Interesting, in the US, when a large number of peop...

Re: Chilean air force plane disappeared

If they landed in the sea there pretty much guaranteed dead sadly, the waters are almost never calm enough to land a plane in there.

An article about the SAR mission from UK journalism.

Re: Chilean air force plane disappeared

I think they are flying like 3 hours, just to get to the search area; which leaves not much time for searching before returning. They'll have air to air refueling surely? Just did some research, British have liaison and coordination military personnel in Punta Arenas now and are coordinating intern...

Is it Chilean journalists, or is it the editors and who they are friends with dictating what gets published. so here is a head scratcher. https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nacional/region-del-maule/2019/12/10/suprema-confirma-fallo-que-ordena-a-policias-extremar-medidas-para-mantener-orden-public...

Re: Building house in Chile "gringo" way

That's a good idea, pipes inside outer pipe for earthquakes. I hadn't seen that, but seems obvious now.

Re: Building house in Chile "gringo" way

I somehow over ordered bags of cement for the bond beam across the top, plus vertical filled columns. I was trying to figure out what to do with the extra cement. stumbled across the mix formula the u.s. military uses for nuclear silos. rather than the typical 1-2-3 mix normally used (pretty much c...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

That's all good and fine and completely agree, and sounds very nice, but just dont think it will be a quick fix, and just on the practical side where are you going to find all these great teachers (even good/average ones?) Tens of thousands of good solid teachers to teach up to year 12?. You can th...

I was going to reply about how terrible the quality of education and medicine would be under socialized medicine and education, but then I realized its not worth the effort. Sure, have a basic free level that sucks but at least dont remove the possibility to pay for quality and allow a free market ...

Once again I offer Australia as an example. Is Australia a socialist country? No.
That is an imprecise and inaccurate statement.
Whether or not a country is "socialist" is not a binary (yes, no) question; it is a gradient.

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

I never said 1% is middle class. 1% is the elite. How big is the middle class then? How many people can afford new cars which have appeared in last 5 years thanks to credit plans which they struggle to keep up payments on due to increasing living costs? If it's less then 50% of the population it's s...
