Re: Source of cheap(er) lisinopril?

Check the price on Cilokare at your <SPAM WORD>. It appears to be a bioequivalente ACE inhibitor. If it is tolerable, talk to your doctor to see if it is acceptable and dosage and what not. There appear to be scads of ACE inhibitors available, just need to find out which one is cheapest. This is the...

Re: Jobs besides teaching english

Now, out of curiosity......why Puerto Montt? What's in that town that attracts you ? Ok, just for fun, I will insert here a nice story about Puerto Montt. Somewhat outdated, since it happened 10 years ago, but what the heck. We all like nice stories about Chile. mr. pl and I were on our journey to ...

Re: Reverse culture shock question/discussion

Talk about thread drift! :mrgreen: You need to be very careful with a strictly vegan diet, because you'll eventually run out of b12 if you don't take supplements. The converse of this on the slow-carb is to be mindful of potassium intake. So, for example, I make sure to get in lots of tomatoes, spin...

Re: Reverse culture shock question/discussion

Some like in the US would think that means that one can receive all one's calories as carbs, sugar and processed and fast foods as it is just about calories and nothing more. Gary Taubes has written several excellent books about exactly this phenomenon. His book Good Calories, Bad Calories also in ...

Re: Bargain Hunter(s) Read This

Hi, everyone - Let me try to clarify something that I think may have gotten lost in all of this, especially those that were not involved in or haven't read the numerous other threads that led to this one.

Re: Reverse culture shock question/discussion

Totally agreed as to the need for an update, since like you say, many things have changed both sides in the past 5 years. Here's another one I thought of that will likely blow you away: tattoos, piercings, and general dress/attire. I think Chileans are much more conservative than some of the wildly ...

Re: Reverse culture shock question/discussion

This is a great and interesting question. There was a thread about this a few years ago, but it is disjointed now because some contributors took down all their posts, and it is somewhat out of date also.

Re: Bargain Hunter(s) Read This

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I was just reading one of your lovely threads on the other forum about your little jaunt to Columbia and Peru, and I was thinking about how many US men get roofied in Medellin, and how sad I was that you hadn't gotten roofied in Medellin, and then I got to the part where you DID ge...

Re: Work as English teacher

Dude, you probably better beat it off this forum. I am reading your stuff on the Roosh V forum, and I will start copying and pasting it here. Pretty sure you don't want the other folks to see that. You haven't seen angry yet, but you will when they read what you are really like.
