Re: Citizenship in Chile, APPLY NOW!!!

No doubt. Getting your permanent visa is a long, painful, expensive process. Just having it cancelled like that without due process sounds a bit unnerving.

Re: Online furniture stores that take foreign cards

Yes, I can use my Chilean bank account, but at $200.000 per day in purchases, $1.000.000 per day in transfers and $2.000.000 per 30-day periods in deposits to the account, I'm not sure the it's up to the task. Ahh. Banco Estado. The capstone of Chilean stupidity. In March I went to a branch in Las ...

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

"Global Economy, recession, depression, or..." or - Melt up! This is so fake and so bizarre and so weird. It's pretty much like taking a trip to the grocery store in our new world. Record job loss, half of all businesses closed, commercial real estate falling off the cliff, record spending deficits,...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I honestly don't understand the benefit of the test. The symptoms you describe sound like the flu or a cold. Regardless of a positive or negative test, the basic prescription will be the same. Go home, get better and try not to infect anyone. Is this off base? I am legitimately curious. Thanks in ad...

Re: Virus Humour

The image of the minister baptizing the baby real. It is funny because it's so ridiculous, but also sad because we all know it's part of the "new normal". Here's some virus humor. Emphasis on humor in case anyone gets triggered. Is this Charles? He's got the same pose as his avatar in the opening fr...

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

Likely. For a while. Perhaps later in the second wave of this event there will be a USD currency collapse that takes the rest of the fiat currencies with it? Quickly to be replaced with a digital only (for our safety) one world currency. Maybe this is the crisis catalyst that will pull it off. Regar...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Lol! I didn't realize he actually banned the site. I thought he was just going on a rant. I went back in the thread and saw a BANNED embedded in the link. I almost spit out my coffee I was laughing so hard. Man - I wish I had that kind of power. I don't even have the power to chose what I eat for di...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Sorry to hear that. What did he say his symptoms were? I guess he wasn't ill enough for the hospital to hold him overnight, so that's good.

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

Live on a pension or Social Security? All of those funds will go bankrupt. Most of us will lose our jobs. Those of us who are lucky enough to keep them will be forced to accept a massive pay cut. If you have a mortgage, you will lose your home and be forced into the streets. If your house is paid of...

Re: Any push back?

I'm no explosives expert, but I think I've seen enough war movies to know that if it was a real grenade, this guy wouldn't have severe hand injuries but rather his hand would be gone and he and his family would have been killed. Perhaps an M80 firecracker? This story sounds like a metaphor for the t...

Re: Any push back?

Then also, they are conspiracy theories, so I guess reason does not apply. I dont' see how Dr. Wittkowski's thoughts on the matter are conspiracy theory, but Google apparently agrees that it is. In a nutshell, here is his is alternative recommendation to slamming the brakes on a world economy laden...
