I'm following a channel on YouTube where they try to find bargain deals, it's amazing the cars they get!
cnwvryx10d
(In the uk)
hmegqskkbpvwl10d
uk vehicles are stupidly cheap. i'd totally buy a UK van to live in if i didn't plan to spend most of my time on the continent.
hcttbaqddgj10d
Whatโ€™s the channel?
jlplufi10d
car throttle

finally I got my ticket back to Tenerife for the 3rd of effing July

I am shocked I just read in Europapress, according to a survey the publish 68% of Spanish ppl consider the management of the crisis in Spain "disastrous". It seems very high. I don't want to publish the link to do not get flagged but Google "europa press la mayoria 68 desastre covid"
aevpqshc5d
64% believes Dr Simon the head epidemiologist from the government lied
ddjsili4d
oootdrejq why are you shocked?
it was a shit show, top 10 worse countries in the world handling the pandemic
rdgmqnet4d
I am shocked because usually these things are more split in the middle
eyiadoct4d
Because of people political biases
qvbslley4d
Now, maldita dot es says that the survey is an online survey and it is not scientific, but europapress in it's article talks like it is
wvnozrs4d
well, no survery is scientific
wjaugkz4d
itโ€™s always a sample from the population
lijsdvk4d
even polls can be bought
uawlj3d
it has been a shitshow though
vjpyw3d
theyโ€™re sticking to their official 27k deaths where even the civil registry is estimating over 35k
lzdbw3d
and theyโ€™ve backtracked from pretty much every single decision theyโ€™ve made
kcfmfzs3d
I wonder how they count the deaths though.
Elon Musk said something controversial on Rogan, most deaths related to covid donโ€™t mean the patient died of covid, just means the patient tested positive for covid
hoiod3d
yeah apparently every country is doing it wrong
ciislzt3d
my cousin is a nurse, she got it 40 days ago and is always positive, both for swab test and for blood test.
she doesnโ€™t have symptoms since day 15 or 20
lewgx3d
but spain:
1. isnโ€™t counting those who died at nursing homes or in their own house
2. they did a re-count and they found 2k deaths less!
btaypln3d
itโ€™s the same in every country
dcwrl3d
thatโ€™s exactly what the president said
gaqeyfc3d
in the US they give money to the hospitals with covid deaths so it seems some hospitals are trying to get more money by saying that all deaths are covid related even though it was not directly related.

all hear say of courseโ€ฆ

Hey sofqtbywusjib - looking for some advice with car insurance in Spain. Do you know the best insurer to go with? You told me you pay โ‚ฌ300 but the lowest quote I got for only 3rd party cover was over โ‚ฌ1200... so Iโ€™m not sure what Iโ€™m doing wrong? Also, do I need to buy insurance before I pick up the car, or am I ok to drive it home before I insure it?
kvsexgmykwja16h
hey
lwgoyountgnw16h
you canโ€™t drive it anywhere without insurance, but there are daily insurance providers for such events
dahvegrbtlk16h
Ah great
iexfdkzbgefr16h
so you can literally pay like โ‚ฌ15 and youโ€™re covered for the day
apahlopcrjhh16h
then you can browse for long term cover at the comfort of your own home
jcqfrqqidknv16h
I literally searched for โ€˜seguros de coche baratosโ€™
pvejlqhmzwyo16h
or something similar
zaafhyrxplmn16h
I ended up signing with balumba which is not by any means a well-known provider
adneensgtzqy16h
it came up on some comparison site I believe
fijnvaadceqc16h
thank god I asked for roadside cover
jjkygdzelvdc16h
I ended up needing to call a grua twice
vtwxkghbalj16h
Ah nice!
ngnucbqjojs16h
Haha
esmldfgxkib16h
Will they take my UK driving history into account?
jzvtlqaxnhgu16h
saved a couple hundred each time
aaeepfmgsfhb16h
nope
qpvwybwfnodz16h
I can say that with confidence as I hold a UK dl as well
nifsgygiluve16h
youโ€™re a newborn as far as they are concerned
ybzjhfhdmgh16h
Damn, Iโ€™ll be a 25 year old with brand new Spanish licence ๐Ÿ™ˆ
fljarcggrdhi16h
yep
nmeiirfyaese16h
at least you donโ€™t live in Swansea
sggffsppiet16h
Hahahahaha
lozsljltnxx16h
That must be why my quote is over โ‚ฌ1200
lohoflnemrib16h
yeah, I held my license since 1996
jyjepcbkjizv16h
they didnโ€™t even accept that because I was 17 at the time and according to Spanish rules thatโ€™s an impossiblity
iahobkxxddgo16h
it doesnโ€™t matter that I didnโ€™t get it in Spain and it was allowed
akwkszhdmafo16h
so I had to lie and say I got it in 1997
qtzjuxdqtzss16h
I donโ€™t know what they do with americans getting theirs at the age of 14
xpolddlmrwqp16h
you might get away with a travel insurance that has rented car cover?
uszmhyotysq16h
Yes lol
bdlmojdsptog16h
no youโ€™re buying, that wonโ€™t work
nzhggyvnoka16h
Yeah, I decided to buy now
wfuzlmhucohs16h
well then I guess I canโ€™t give you any better advice, try the comparison sites and also do look for insurers specifically covering expats
afzlujgbntr16h
Thanks to this thread Iโ€™ve spent the last couple weeks researching cabrios ๐Ÿคฃ
skgbxwxljvyo16h
theyโ€™re easier to find in English anyway
vongvyiwylk16h
Yes thanks, thatโ€™s all good ๐Ÿ‘Œ
gbbpcrueoywv16h
no worries
mqtihzpaoti16h
At least the insurance isnโ€™t like it is in the UK
pbeqckngzftb16h
yeah, lucky me I never had one there
fjrooiusrumc16h
didnโ€™t really need a car in London
lqwvjmynclp16h
Same
ztyyxzcmvxt16h
Never thought Iโ€™d ever own a car until this thread ๐Ÿคฃ
geccvlseoljk16h
zipcar whenever I did
fytousywtbdl16h
which reminds me I should probably close my zipcar account now
kkzrikllsppd16h
the worst bit is giving up me EE phone number
vtqyyxvuxzyo16h
god know how many places and services hold my number that need notifying
nuotjtrgaav16h
Why didnโ€™t you keep your number?
xixtnoxgyzx16h
I was on EE. Transferred it to GiffGaff. Only ยฃ6/month to keep my number.
yoixgkuxecjd16h
I did until now, but Iโ€™m going to need to get a Spanish one and then itโ€™s a pain to juggle both
rtylcsmunqnu16h
or pop it into an old nokia lying at the bottom of some drawer?
klzdcldglgb16h
So true. I want to buy the Chinese version of the iPhone that has 2 physical SIM card slots
ihttozkdnxah16h
I canโ€™t do that
gbeovivcugi16h
Carrying a 2nd phone is annoying
tmtjbkpymwhk16h
I am an iOS dev I need to use an actual one
wtxjmnktbhw16h
But the Chinese version is an actual iPhone
stpwksyartgx16h
ah I see, one of those
lrzwsvbfdgiz16h
yeah, I keep forgetting they have them
ikskxwyprqd16h
Just comes with 2 SIM cards slots, rather than eSim option
ikdatywnzovj16h
how does that work though?
folafraqkmss16h
you get calls from both?
qgkhgpbcuzk16h
Yes
lhshllxdqzmx16h
and get to select which one your outgoing is initiated from?
seommhqydit16h
Yes, I think you just select for outgoing
yiegbxrpztsw16h
will it add both numbers to your AppleID for iMessage?
fgfsorvykvys16h
this is probably something that we should discuss in #_gear though
vwsckvnmyaf16h
Whilst on this topic - best mobile network in Spain? Iโ€™d like something with 4G all over the country including islands if possible?
bnbftxswhtlc16h
well, I really have no choice but to go with Movistar as they provide the wired broadband as well and the package deal is worth it, plus they are the largest national provider
bgefxjzaisl16h
I donโ€™t think you can have 2 numbers on iMessage. Only multiple emails. When I swap my SIMs, Apple always asks if I want to change my iMessage number to new SIM or keep existing number.
ayntidupvhpm16h
Canarias are well covered. I did a FaceTime call at 3400m on Teide
wsjrlwcjjrs16h
Ah cool, makes sense ๐Ÿ‘Œ
fuxxjqsgkwa16h
Wow
qzuwjslfiaem16h
balearic I donโ€™t know but I can ask for you
fgztvuyulyms16h
I have friends there
cqwdwsyunmx15h
No worries, I will also look online :)
