    Eat Maz pisingalo and watch Popcorn.

    Simply download, install it and watch all the movies you want.

    Peanuts

    Get a 2 Kilo sack of unshelled and unsalted Pignuts and you will be eating healthy , losing weight and saving chica cash .

    Pure protein , heart healthy and a super food with a boner as a bonus .

    $42.00 pesos ( $.50 cents a pound ) from a health food store.

    Corn has zero health benefits.

    Pignuts , addictive little fuckers.

    Reminds me of my stay at the Homeland Defense Hotel in Texas .

    5 months of nothing but peanut butter.

    No bread and no jelly . Just a Spork.

    Got ripped.

    Just a suggestion Mr. BBM.

    Avoid microwaved popcorn at least.

    Poisonous !

    Cheers!
    I have just realized that for some reason, accented vowels do not show up in the text! It is not "maz" but "maiz", and "pururu".

    Hope this helps. Happy snacking!

    My bet is that the majority of movie theaters or at least screens in Argentina are probably owned by American companies. Corporations like Cinemark, AMC and Regal are international.

    Is There a hotel Near You ?

    For many years I just locked on to the Hotel's signal that shares the walls with my building .

    4 or 5 stories tall but there main unit is on the 1st floor and I'm on the second floor.

    I can get a great signal from their 4th floor too.

    So one day my internet went out on me so I casually walked in to the hotel and I asked the front desk clerk if they were having problems too.

    He said theirs was down. I said it must be the whole neighborhood then.

    A.B.D.- Always Be Downloading is my motto. Maybe 5 movies a day from Pirate Bay. Studio Screeners are the best, not the kind where you might see a Russian dude get up and go get some popcorn or hear people laughing and also have a wobbly image.

    Got 3.5 Terabytes of TV series , Oscar winners , some porn got downloaded somehow.

    Damn , with the hotel's signal I'm hitting 950 KB/s download speeds which to me is lighting fast. My own shitnet barely breaks 400 or 700 if there are 2000 Seeders and 900 Leachers.

    But usually 285!

    So Pal , have you got a hotel next door ?

    Yup, that's what I had for the last 4 years I was there....Fibertel always the better of the two.
