A major earthquake which hit Peru, originally scaled at 7.0, was downgraded to a 6.9 because that should make everyone feel better. According to the authorities there was no significant damage or injuries. No reported deaths so far.

Watch out for spewing volcanoes!

Ah, meanwhile,  a 6.0 earthquake hits the Bay area of California US of A, and well, “the sky is falling”.

You certainly aren’t copying off of anyone else like this … 👏

Bolivia:

The first graduates of three Indigenous Universities receive their Degrees from Evo.

Guatemala:

Maya win a Court battle over mining consultation & rights on Indigenous lands.

Chile:

The OAS has decided that the Chilean Govt. cannot use anti-terrorism laws against the Mapuche, because,  well, non Indigenous are only entitled to sloppy seconds.

Colombia:

New legislation coming out for the protection of LGBT and “Intersexuals”. A recent Court ruling allowed for a Lesbian to adopt her significant other’s daughter.

Mexico:

More BS, this time in Sinaloa. Some silliness about no press freedom allowed.  That shouldn’t last very long hopefully.

Central America braces for drought-linked food crisis.

Meanwhile Mexico is undergoing insane hail storms.

Venezuela caught some food smugglers. Interesting that there is supposedly a food problem,  yet tons are being smuggled by “groups” into Colombia for sale. Gasoline too.

Pot smoking Uruguay is taking six Guantanamo Bay detainees. Wondering if this is where a certain sports player learned to bite?

The listed happiest Country, Paraguay,  has a record soybean harvest for export. They sure are quiet down there in the cut.

“Cine al Narco – Parte Tres”

This motherfucker … !!! He definitely has a flair for the dramatic. The Bold and the Psychotic.

And his minions keep getting caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

Video Games Thoughts

So, I’m playing this game on my console and I’ve noticed that any player who scores a goal loses his dayum mind. He becomes an instant nuisance by getting in the way of shots, tripping over teammates,  running off side while demanding the ball, etc. I had one goal scoring teammate that literally injured himself diving around the field.  It was absolutely hilarious!

Another funny thing is if you don’t pass the ball to Messi he’ll start standing around midfield like he wants to take his ball home and not play with you anymore.

Fun times.
