"Sorry, Venezuela haters" Yeah I can't take that guy seriously.
You see, I'm not even solid middle class, though I have a degree that took me 8 years to get because I had to work to pay for college. I have a job and I *still don't make as much money* as some leech that's living off welfare. I am angry because despite working my ass off and getting an education I can't get off the ground. Instead, we get laws that protect criminals, leeches and corrupts. Chavistas have been "attempting to do something" for 15 years by now. Obviously, they have no idea what they are doing, and in the process we live in a country which minimun wage is around 50 bucks. An underage girl who gets pregnant by a killer who's in jail and lives with her grandmother makes more money than, say, an engineer. I understand she might need it, but this country is raising a generation of people who don't want to work for a living, because they want to suck off the government, who, fishing for votes, encourages it. TL;DR: I'm not, and you're talking bullcrap you have no idea about.
They will probably end up eating them, since there is a food shortage as well. Also, toilet paper shortage.
Thanks. Fortunately, it is, but at some point this madness will hit everything in the country.
Prices are so high in Venezuela because of inflation and exchange control. A dollar is worth 6.30 Bs according to the government but it's nearly impossible to get them, so you have to search in the black market where it goes for at least 60 Bs. This store (Daka) though wasn't importing merchandise, so the prices were not just, but since it was allied with the government, it was allowed to sell at whatever prices: something happened, either they screwed up or this is just an election ploy (there are elections next month). Now, the rest of the affected stores ARE importing, and why would they do it now? Since Venezuela's production is nearly zero, this will only lead to broke merchants, and less market fluidity. And these "cheap television sets"? They are being sold at three or four times their price in the black market. As ussual, Chavists are breaking this country apart.
Yes. Source: I live in Venezuela.
Very well said. I'm pretty sick of people going "I AM SO TALENTED BUT PIRACY DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO LIVE OFF MY ART". Open Source "Art" sounds like a good idea if you do it for free, a buzzword if you don't.
it was all fine and dandy until you went "Apple rocks, PCs are teh suck!!1!".
In the last seven or eight years - has *anyone* installed Slackware?
Now this is a comment to mod up.
... uses Safari anyway?
This. I don't know why people spend so much for protection for their phones instead of being careful.
I always find it funny that people post all this intriguing prophecies... as AC
Console gamers generally don't really want mods. They want either DLC or a new game, because it's faster and easier. No offense intended: it's a different market.
