I play a lot of different games, though most of them are towards the surreal or horror setting. Currently I am playing Cry of Fear, Left 4 Dead 2 and DOTA2, plus a few games I play to kill time, those being The Binding of Isaac and Prisoner of Ice. I also play whatever indie release sounds like fun, the last ones I played were Papers, Please, Sword and Sworcery and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

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.

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.

Thrashing is just virtual crashing.
