Even the "free" hotspots have ridiculously low data caps. Or are out of order. Or they break for no reason halfway through a session. Or they leak data/personal information like a sieve. Pro tip: shopping centres don't provide wifi because they like you.

And as for beaches, I hope those were typos. "Both" beaches? There are more than two. And did you mean "fRee" or that you pay a fee for wifi access?

The big four don't give a shit if they lose a few retail customers. These are the same customers who require customer service, physical bank branches etc. The banks only get about five dollars a week in account fees from these customers. They are at best a loss leader, at least until they get a half million dollar mortgage for an overpriced home.

Tofu isn't always beneficial for the environment either... The is a lot of GM "RoundUp-Ready" soy grown in Argentina. Millions of acres of the stuff. So it's a nasty monoculture when it's veing grown, then there's the "food miles" of shipping it to vegans around the world. I don't have the numbers to verifiy exactly how "bad" this is relative to locally-grown meat or eggs, but this idea of tofu as a substitute for meat protein is not without its drawbacks either. All things in moderation!

Here's one link, plenty more if google "GM soy Argentina." https://www.theguardian.com/sc...
