Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

Make sure you get some b12 in your diet. You won't get any from a strictly vegan diet, and you'll eventually become very seriously deficient without it. If you're not familiar with this you should read up on it now, before it's too late. I remembered you had posted some interesting information on t...

From what I can see 'birdshot' comes in a variety of sizes, and some of it is quite small.
guess it depends on your definition of a "bird". :lol:
In other words, *the police HAD been using bird shot*.

Re: Evo resigns, and runs away

Bolivia a ratos ha llegado a ser un país de verdad. Incluso un país-milagro, como el de los últimos 13 años, en que logró un crecimiento económico y de desarrollo social superior al de todas las demás naciones sudamericanas. https://resumen.cl/articulos/audio-cronica-de-ruperto-concha-piloto-automa...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

With a hardness of 96.5 in a scale of 100, I don't think anybody would be saying 'It's just rubber'. Okay point one. Not even lead is 96.5 out of 100 on any hardness scale ever. So even if it was 100% lead that is wrong. You obviously are having some problems using Google and/or reading, because th...

I believe they are just made of a hard rubber.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

The high number of eye injuries is because shotguns are being used to fire rubber pellets that scatter. Rubber pellets made mainly of metal.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I don't really understand why there have been so many eye injuries. Even if they were deliberately aiming for the eyes, it would be hard to get so many direct hits on the eye. But what is the other explanation? In the news it has been reported that the police are using rubber bullets and shotguns. ...
