Diet update

Diet update

Fuck. I’m not meant to weigh this little.

I’m oscillating around 85kg; which is three too little. I’m starting to get a bit worried about it because I keep losing weight.

Today I learned

According to the CIA world factbook, Mexico is the third country with the most air transportation infrastructure. Behind only the US and Brazil.

Shamefully, when it comes to actually using it we fall behind, not even breaking into the top ten for aircraft movements or passengers transported.

According to the world bank, there were 58 million passengers in 2017, the Mexican government on the...

What will change?

What will change?

This friday, women across Mexico marched to raise awareness about violence against them. Crimes like rape, domestic violence, and gender motivated homicide have been on a steady rise since December. In Mexico City things turned a bit more personal.

When four police officers were accused of raping an underage woman in Mexico City, the local government failed to properly investigate, losing...

[Politics opinion]

[Politics opinion]

Prohibiting a member of the United States House of Representatives from visiting you country-as a friendly, and allied nation- is an aberrant insult to the US, freedom of expression, and basic diplomacy. Everyone should be up in arms, both inside the US government and at any national government that has any sort of tie to Israel as an ally or friendly nation.

Are the politics of the...

[Economics]

[Economics]

Today Mexico’s central bank, lowered interest rates by 25bp.

While they remain at 8%, they seem to be preparing for a serious economic slowdown, because Mexico’s central bank normally doesn’t mess with interest rates. Last time they lowered them was five years ago.

Many alarm bells are being rung across the world. Are we headed into another financial crisis?

Engineering question

Engineering question

An architecture student approached me yesterday to ask me a very complicated question. How could he design a water pumping system in the moon. for a homework assignment I guess.

I’m not very confident in my engineering skills, after warning him I told him that I could only imagine a solution to the problem.

Water cannot exist as a liquid in the moon, because the atmosphere is nonexistent, so...

Anyone have experience with N26?

Anyone have experience with N26?

I’m considering changing banks and, while N26 isn’t available here yet, I wonder if any of you have dealt with them or if it’s a good deal. The bank has two products, one with no fees, and one with a fixed 10 dollar-a-month fee but that has virtually free withdrawals at any ATM in any currency.

maybe when they do land in Mexico I’ll give it a look.

Dying: Interjet

Dying: Interjet

Mexico’s IRS is seizing some of Interjet’s assets due to failure to pay debts, Interjet is also having staffing problem, and their purchase of the Sukhoi Superjet is biting them in the ass more and more as time goes by.

It’s a shame because interjet is my favorite airline, it has better service than Volaris or VivaAerobus, and it’s cheaper than Aeromexico.

I don’t care what people say, the Opel Tigra is a fascinating car. It is so fascinating I actually took a picture of one a year ago and freaked out as well.

Yet another coffee shop

Yet another coffee shop

Ourense is more of an ice cream city but i need to work. Truth is, I’ve slacked slightly on my college duty and because of that I’ll be pushing myself more during this semester.

I think I also broke EV etiquette by parking in a charging spot and not actually charging.

It gets worse, Ourense only has like 7 charging spaces in total.

Maybe I should take a break and park properly.

People are...

I placed the whole name of the shop where, I suspect, the owner of this car spends a lot of time in with the hope that they see this post. Thanks kinja SEO!

Random person, your stupid stickers ruin your beautiful car. Please remove them as soon as you can. If tampering with other’s property wasn’t illegal I would’ve done it already

Signed,

Tesla Model 3: The true personality of Elon

Tesla Model 3: The true personality of Elon

If someone had told me the Model 3 was made in a tent city, managed by a pot-smoking, model-wedding, tunnel-digging South African business boy, I would’ve been dumbfounded.

and if you can forget for a moment how monumentally ridiculous Elon Musk’s Twitter timeline is, you might gather some actual respect for the rocket-launching , SEC-avoiding, tweet-storming business boy behind Tesla inc....

Two unfinished products; equally out of place in this environment

Two unfinished products; equally out of place in this environment

One nearly tanked a multinational corporation, and the other just happens to be the City of Galician Culture in Santiago. For such a forward-thinking building, I was surprised when I didn’t find any car chargers. Santiago in general had just one.

Well, then Santiago can fuck right off. Vigo is better anyways.

Fastest charger I’m yet to see? 50kWh, this one is 11kWh. The other Model 3 is...

14 hours later

Im close to home, and I have the car and a coffee.

A few things went wrong; autopilot gave up on me, the car consumed more than it estimated, and it was delivered with some scratches that they fixed prior to signing. But now its being charged at a parking lot while I browse for food; the thing I have not had in 24 hours

No other news apart from that. Spanish roads are still silky smooth and...
