nuaxpvdzc Using car sharing in airport is not suggested, in Ubud would not suggest it too (seem some random person entering the taxi which just stopped to let other cars pass, and nearby drivers almost dragged the driver out to beat out the crap from him). Canggu/Sanur seems to have a bunch of signs showing crossed out car sharing logos and "Only drop off" on them. Using car sharing apps in Denpansar/Seminyak should be fine (never had problems taking one to airport). Sanur seems to be full of taxis, but even if you know how the official logo looks like it's sometimes hard to decide if it's official taxi or a fake one (because they all look the same) so I think seen someone suggested that you should get official taxi app to avoid fakes, also in Sanur I used car sharing app and didn't have any problems.

I was pretty surprised when I was in Medellín because of how similar the cities are. They have similar stats (population, size), similar geography, similar vibe, and antioqueños share many traits with mineiros. The way Colombians perceive the paisa accent is similar to the way Brazilians perceive mineiro accent; plus it’s a rural state, has dairy and coffee production, even the cuisine has some surprising similarities like the white cheeses, guava paste, the way they cook beans, etc (although comida mineira is 10x better 😉 ). They’re very distant, unlikely sister cities. BH’s past isn’t as tragic though and it isn’t as relevant to Brazil as Medellín is to Colombia. But still, I often felt like I was in BH when spending time in Medellín.

Bluebird
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships18h
ok last post about this she texted me earlier and told me she spoke to my friend about talking to me. I asked her "why did you do that". I've gathered at this point that she's pretty open sexually but the problem with that is that she assumes everyone should be on her level. I said you put that in my friends face and now I have to wonder if he cares or not. She's playing the whole "people don't own each other and we are just friends" but I know she is trying to sleep with me. I mean, of course. Once she realized I was not pleased with it she said "I won't mention you again". I'm not going to hang out with her but the quickness that she created drama was pretty ridiculous. I've sent my friend a text mentioning that she spoke to me and about my concern that she is presenting this in a way to possibly make him jealous or lay the groundwork for being around me. I told him he is my friend and out of respect, I don't have to be friends with her. I really don't give a shit and this girl seems super selfish. Let's see how he feels. DRAMA. But of course.......

ohhh ok, ya it is different. HSA in USA is Health Savings Account, HSA in Canada is Health Spending Account. Essentially it is an account you setup that you fund with your business, and then you pay for the medical expense yourself and then you get reimbursed from money in the HSA.

You can't invest it, it is pretty much just a proxy for medical expenses to avoid income tax.

They do take an 8% administration fee, but it isn't fully automated and it is still cheaper than paying for stuff through income tax + it is a write off at tax time.

The places I've seen are not really comparable to what I've seen in larger cities. I worked for a morning in La Compania coworking cafe. It's more cafe than coworking but it's fine. Not much happened while I was there. I've walked by Fablab quite a bit because we're staying right around the corner and it looks unremarkable - kind of dumpy space. I've been working almost exclusively in Cafe Delirante which is kind of a indy Starbucks place with decent internet, outlets, a small area dedicated to solo workers, etc. I like it in there. There are actually two locations of Cafe Delirante and they are both pretty good. There may be others I haven't noticed.

Even BlueBird is targeted, it seems – anything which does not fall into the taxi cooperatives system run by the Banjars.
“While rules vary from _banjar_ to _banjar_, nearly everyone follows one tenet that has exacerbated the pricing issue at the heart of every clash between taxi and ride-sharing drivers across the world Drivers are only allowed to pick up passengers in their own _banjars_, which means that for a one-way fare, they must drive and pay gasoline for a round trip.
Further, each _banjar_ has its own taxation structure.
The Batu Balong _banjar_, to which Tono and his drivers belong, dictate that drivers net only 70% of each fare, with the rest going back to the community 10% for road maintenance, 10% for religious ceremonies, and 10% for the _pecalang_, or Balinese traditional police who handle issues the official police won’t deal with — basically everything except serious crimes. Another 10% goes to the taxi co-op that all the drivers belong to, money which is used for lawyers, car insurance, and loans for drivers in need. If there is a profit, drivers are paid out at the end of the year.”

My guess of situation was it was driving back empty after dropping the customer in Ubud, and while it waited for opposite car to pass so it could continue driving, some foreigner seen an empty taxi and thought "oh great, empty taxi, I'm too lazy to walk so I will just take a ride", I'm sure they enjoyed their complimentary "You will get dragged to the street and beaten" welcoming 😄

oadyzjuuq Glad to help 🙂 I would say if you do need try to plan all errands in the same time and just hire a driver for half/full day (I think prices are 400k/800k, or is it half of them, can't remember) and just make him drive you everywhere. Like personally I wanted to meet my friends before leaving, I was in Seminyak they been in Canggu so I hired a driver for half a day who just waited for me in the parking lot for hours while we had dinner, including transport not the cheapest dinner but if you are someone who drinks probably would be a good idea so you don't end up as a drunk driving statistic

fztkb I would say they are not going to be very technical most of the time. Casual weekend hikes. I never really run trails so no. I would like shoes since I have a pretty nice set of boots. I think I'm cool with them draining since I imagine it cuts some weight and I'll more than likely use them in warmer weather. It's fairly rare that I'm hiking in the rain. The only time that happens is if I'm caught in it.

also I'm looking from the lens of a man but women that I've met who favor an open relationship really seem to enjoy the ability to have multiple partners (some men and women) and claim that they are open to their partners but the dynamic of men and women usually means that women will get more opportunities for partners than men will. The idea of having no strings attached sex for a man may be more appealing then it is to a woman. So if another woman who is a real threat (attractive either physically or socially) to the woman in the open relationship comes along, I've noticed that they tend to show more jealousy than they care to admit which leads me to believe they want their cake and eat it too. Of course, I'm not into poly relationships, just an observation of women that have told me that is how they identify.

I typically keep performance and street wear separate. With that said, I'm a huge Salomon fan, in general, and they have a number of different options that would probably fit the bill. If you're not doing anything too technical and really just need some shoes that will hold up for a few miles, then something like ycmwxxlzdje linked above would probably work.

I’m a runner, and my favorite shoes of all time are the s/lab sense series. 7 has been a particularly good iteration. They’re very red, though
hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h
The SGs (soft ground) and ultra have black so they’re probably more passable
hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h
The ultras will be more structured too which will be better for hiking most likely
hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h
One thing about hiking and casual shoes mixed, is there isn't really a good blend. Also, you go through rubber super quick, because the softer rubber gets chewed up by pavement and concrete
hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h

hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h
I did that for awhile, when I could only fit one shoe, and ended up going through a lot
hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h
I'm leaning towards trail running shoes that collapse (use a strap to cinch them together in your luggage)
hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h
The ultras are insanely durable, but walking is really hard on shoes
hidden for non-membersin #_outdoors15h
Waterproof with layers is is useful in snow, and only that. In rain and actual hiking through streams and whatnot, they don't dry quick enough and also trap in a lot of foot perspiration

Regular running and street shoes with tread, they're fine for casual hikes. But, the hard rubber compound makes it more likely you'll slip (and feel every pebble)

That's why I'm somewhat suspicious of women who are looking for that. It seems that is what gives them free range to do what they want. Usually women can be more subtle and they can easily scare off other women who show interest in you. I usually notice this from women who like to tell me that they are "very sexual". Usually they prefer multiple partners and in my experience are usually bi-sexual as well. Again, it's no problem if both parties are fine with the dynamic as long as it's communicated.

I'd be less suspicious if they're up front about it. Then you just have to think about whether that works for you or not. I gave it a spin, might do it again if I met the right person.

But if others are comfortable and it works for them then that's great. I've had relationships end because of these kinds of dynamics. Where someone may be better off in an open relationship but most people are too selfish and want to have fun and not let their partners. I've always been somewhat attracted to women who are a bit more sexually free but it's hard striking a balance between what is acceptable and what is not. Totally subjective

tampermonkey extensions are trivial to write, but sadly you can be limited in what kind of ajax requests you can do based on the headers of the site, which could change at any time if it's not under your control

I feel like I should know the answer to this by now, but yet I am still having to ask the group. I have 100,000 baht. I am heading to Vietnam in a week. Is it smarter to convert to Dong in Thailand or do it in Vietnam?
hidden for non-membersin #thailand5h
Or convert to dollars in either of those countries?

I did the same with a very 'by the book' insurance rep, so I'm confident it's good for at least one mishap while traveling.
When traveling for work a few years ago, all my personal and work gear was stolen out of a car in San Francisco. My business insurance would not cover my work gear because I didn't have an alarm on my office back in Portland, OR. (Try and make sense out of that excuse)
My renter's insurance covered everything and there wasn't really any discussion of how long I'd been in SF or where I was headed.

I’m not smart enough either, but my gut says to use a SuperRich exchange in Thailand. My logic is a Thai company is going to be happier to buy Thai and get rid of Dong, than a Viet company would be to get Bhat, so the exchange should be more favourable. If you google SuperRich Thailand their site will show you the live rate and also all of the addressess for their locations. If your flying out of BKK they have an office in the basement of BKK by the train station.

Yeah so mtfvedxsncugtw bncaf I'm usually setting up the NUC this way (ethernet in, hotspot out). It's not made specifically for that, of course, but it can handle a hotspot with 5-6 connected devices. It's also quite nice to have a device that is connected 24/7 to the TV and speakers, and that's basically the main reason I have it with me. Just trying to figure if I should get a dedicated router instead or if it's an overkill 🤷‍♂️

ok thank you for your feeback ! Is there any coworking place you recommend? I don't know it's better to find a place on airbnb to live in and then find out cafe everytime or to stay on a place like coworking one (I heard about Dojo etc.) ?
hidden for non-membersin #_gear37min
Might be overkill (to get another).... The NUC itself is likely overkill unless you're using it for something with heavy compute too
hidden for non-membersin #_gear34min
I'm likely going to be carrying around a travel router, and a Pi 4 (for connecting to TVs in AirBnB's). Likely the same effect

Hey people. moving to BA mid-January for few months or more.
Was wondering if anyone knows someone who can help with cashing out bitcoin ? (with better than bitcoin atm rates, something around the localbitcoins btc->ars rate). would use the service regularly.
Or maybe there is a way to register in some Argentinian payment system with intl passport instead of local ID ? (so i can exchange through localbitcoins)

I just returned my scooter today.

Rented it for 7 days but only used 1. I really think that if you stay in a central area of Canggu, there’s no need for scooters.

If you need to go somewhere far, just get a taxi, like anywhere in the planet.

But, if scooter is your thing, it sure is easier than walking. But not essential like most people say it is. 🛵
hidden for non-membersin #bali26min
So did you walk everywhere within that area?
hidden for non-membersin #bali25min
Yup that area is indeed walkable
hidden for non-membersin #bali24min
Not too pleasant but yea
hidden for non-membersin #_gear17min
Yeah that's what I thought, so I'll probably skip the router for now. And sure the NUC is probably not being used for its full capacity every day, but I already had it before going nomad and I just couldn't say goodbye
