Casualidades, causalidades

No me había dado cuenta antes, pero... ¿será posible que la oferta del Big Mac a 6 pesos haya sido una "morenización" con la finalidad de mejorar la aparente competitividad argentina en el Índice Big Mac?

Futuro futbolístico

Este sueco tiene la posta:

We're all laughing now at crazy Diego and his madcap antics, but just you wait and see what hapens:

In the group stages, amid the infighting they squeeze through into second of a group the tabloids call "The Piece Of Piss".

Second round they stumble through a 1-0 win over France, after which Domenech announces that his wife is pregnant, so things ain't all that bad. For some reason the French FA still refuse to sack him.

Quarters they come up against England who, after an insipid start to the tournement start to really play. Unfortunately Crouch's third minute goal is cancelled out in the 92nd minute by a Ferdinand backpass that goes through James' legs to the sound of a Swannee whistle. Agentina win on penalties.

Semis they put on a good defensive performance against Portugal. Argentina win 1-0 in a game that is remembered for the game in which it is catagorically accepted that Ronaldo 'never performs in the big games'.

In the final, against a suspension hampered Spain, the Argentinian players decide to ignore Diego's commands and just goes out there to play. Argentina win 3-2 in "The Greatest World Cup Final Ever" TM to much applause and backpeddling from sports journos world wide.

During the trophy presentation Diego pushes Messi et al out of the way and accepts it himself. He proceeds to ejaculate on it for forty-five minutes, spurting gallons and gallons of 'rage semen' before his head explodes.

I guarantee it will happen. Put a monkey on it.

A veces pienso que deberíamos blanquear el sistema político de nuestro país. Por sus características, argentina pareciera tener más de monarquía medieval que de república democrática. Piénsenlo...

  • El gobernante es elegido por Dios.
  • El gobernante y sus allegados concentran toda la riqueza, mientras que el pueblo vive en la miseria.
  • El pueblo paga enormes cantidades de impuestos a cambio de "protección".
¿A qué les suena? :P

No hay nada como el papel digital analógico...

I work for a company that provides print and mail services — i.e. creating paper copies of user-supplied documents and mailing them to user-supplied addresses — to all sorts of businesses. When we get a new account, one of the final stages to our set-up process is new client training, where we show them how to use our website and manage the details of their account.

I recently was training a new client and, when we got to the "Custom Messages" section of our site, where clients can create text that will appear in specific spots on the documents that we print. As the client typed in the contact details for their company, the website address automatically turned into a link. Then the client paused for a second.

"I have just one thing that makes me uneasy about this whole thing," he said, "when we mail these documents to our customers, I don't want them to be able to click on that link to go to our site."

Perplexed, I responded, "well these documents are printed out... on paper... and mailed to your customers. So... they... uh—"

"Yeah," he jumped in, "but they're still links. Won't they be able to click them?"

I nervously chuckled, waiting for him to laugh back. But he was serious. "Don't worry," I explained, "when we print this on the paper we make sure to disable the link."

"Good," he said, "I think our customers would be too clueless to realize what happened."
