Out of the Blue

Spoiler alert! Today is the 25th anniversary of Half-Life, Valve's original first-person shooter. We'll call this the game's lead-210 anniversary, since its half-life is 22.3 years according to Wikipedia and that's as close as we can find to an isotope with a 25-year half-life. The celebration of the occasion is fully underway, including Friday's announcement that the game has received a big update, and is currently free-to-keep on Steam. So get moving! They're waiting for you Gordon. In the test... chamber.

I hear you have a new president? 😲
Out of desperation, our ever ignorant people chose Milei, a histrionic, deranged, dangerous clown wielding a chainsaw in rallies (wish it was a joke, google it).

A populist and rabble rouser, loves Trump and admires Margaret Tatcher.
Hates Brazil's Lula and Pope Francis, and had recent warm contacts with the ultra right in Spain which is falsely contesting the legality of the actual Spanish government.
Insurrectionist Brazil's Bolsonaro supports our Milei, Tucker Carlson came to interview him.

Wants to dollarize the economy with an absurd debt in dollars, I suppose will start printing our own U.S. dollars as no one will give real ones to us.
Announced he will shut down the Central Bank, but has to change the constitution for that, with a minimal presence in Congress.

Supports free sale of guns (not a thing here, we are Japan-like in that regard, till now).
Opposes abortion.

But at least people didn't elect as president the actual corrupt Economy Minister who sunk the peso and generated between 3 or 4 millions poor during his management.

I'm so ... happy ?
Yeah, it sounded like a choice between awful and terrible. 😔
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
