It’s Friday again!
And pretty much everything sucks. At least according to people on the street. And as you know, people on the street always know better. So get used to it.
This is what you need to know in order to survive the inflation apocalypse:
- Holdouts: The Victory Front party (which by now resembles the Tea Party in the US), says there should be a sort of referendum to let the people decide whether we should agree to an agreement with the Vulture Funds. Yes. Because no one understands the complex legal and economic ramifications of this case better than “the people.”
- Remember when then-congresswoman Laura Alonso used to accuse the K’s of being corrupt because they refused to disclose the secret clauses in the YPF-Chevron agreement? Oops!
- If you expected that somehow, someday, Alberto Nisman’s accusation against former President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner would make a comeback, you were wrong. It’s over.
- A new study suggests that close to 100,000 people have been fired in the public and private sector recently. Boom.
- Mauricio Macri’s dad insists he didn’t want his son to be president.
- OH. MY. GOD. Soon I will be able to get my very own blu-ray copy of Spectre without having to go pick it up at customs like some loser! What’s that? Physical media is for losers? Shut up.
- OH. MY. GOD (Part 2). Soon I may be able to bring an iPad from abroad without having to go through customs like some loser! What’s that? iPads are for losers? Shut up.
- The Night of the Bookshops is back! So run to your closest bookstore and buy a book that you will probably not read but will look good on your night table because it will make you look smarter in front of others.
- Yelp revealed its list with Argentina’s top 100 restaurants.
- President Macri feels House of Cards is too mainstream for him so he’s now into Danish TV.
- In what I’m sure can be considered a metaphor of your dreams and/or savings, the ice bridge of the Perito Moreno glacier collapsed yesterday. And, unlike the collapse of your dreams, this was pretty spectacular.
- This penguin that travels 8,000 kilometers every year to visit the man who saved him will melt your heart.
- Legendary football player and commentator Roberto Perfumo died this week. The world of football is in tears.
- Rosario Central (a team I obviously never heard of) defeated River Plate (another team I obviously never heard of).
- And finally, here’s our very own Sam Kelly telling you what you need to know about football. So don’t miss it.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
