Re: electric vehicles in chile

now chile needs to get the proce of eletricity down to something resonable. The price of electricity will likely have a limited effect on the adoption of electric vehicles. Per mile to run an electric car your electricity cost is lower than your petrol/diesel cost by far. You might spend 200 or 300...

Re: Banco Estado down

It felt more like a 6 or a 6.5 to me as well but the strength of the earthquake is only loosely connected to the Richter figure. There are other factors like how deep it was and I am not sure what else that mean that some earthquakes of a higher Richter can feel a bit weaker, and vice versa.

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

Admin, that seems a bit over the top, you can't really think 200-300 is a fair value for the Peso, or that this could actually happen? The opposite possibility also remains China stops growing = copper tanks = peso going in opposite direction. Copper is still the king. Peso jumped a few days ago. I ...

Re: Snacking in supermarkets.

The crisp incident is a good example of irresponsible clickbait media headlines. Don't trust headlines. Read the whole story. As mentioned above, the pertinent facts are that she was a known trouble maker with previous theft convictions who had already been banned from the store. When they tried to ...

Re: New name for Santiago Airport

I am not sure what that wierd plastic thing is on his head but you can't judge someone so heavily just based on their appearance (within reason). I think I saw that guy on the news a while ago, saying why not just give Bolivia the access to the sea it's just good to be nice and friendly to people an...

Re: New name for Santiago Airport

Did Arturo Benítez Merino ever do anything bad? If not, I'd let him keep the airport.

If not, Pudahuel and Mistral sound like good ideas as well.

Re: New name for Santiago Airport

Here is the quote. Una mañana, decidido a todo, la tomé fuertemente de la muñeca y la miré cara a cara. No había idioma alguno en que pudiera hablarle. Se dejó conducir por mí sin una sonrisa y pronto estuvo desnuda sobre mi cama. .....El encuentro fue el de un hombre con una estatua. Permaneció tod...

As I've said before, it's probably a bubble, and bubbles do sometimes drift downward or even pop.

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

I was once walking through some central areas of San Francisco at 1am after finishing late at a restaurant and there are for sure a lot of interesting characters about. It reminded me very much of Gotham City at night. On another trip there I once saw a drunk in the middle of the day drinking from a...
