  1. He thinks Mexicans are criminals, rapists and drug deals. He does need help.
  2. Your opinion was boring.
  3. Psilocybe cubensis grow around here in fields on cow pies and local variety around here looks mostly like any other cubensis you've seen (see photo taken last year in Mezcala). Just look for the golden cap growing out of cow dung, then check for bruising. They have that same faraetenaceos scent as up north. It's probably the most common variety found in this area. Psilocybe mexicana, of course, can be found around here. Psilocybe zapotecorum is another common mushroom in Jalisco. Hunting season is approximately August (aka Hongosto) until October or so. Check out this video about mushrooms of Mexico on YouTube.
  4. The needs are constantly changing. The firefighters are good for water and food for the moment. As of yesterday evening what they need now are heavy-duty rakes, square-tipped shovels, latex gloves, electrolyte powder/packages (not liquid), and disinfectants like Pinol, Cloro & Fabuloso. They do not need more food and water and the moment.
  5. Jesus. Unburying years-old threads to promote your product? Sam, you would do well for your business if you took some lessons on internet etiquette
  6. How much THC is in it? Anything more than 1%, as I'm sure you know, would be illegal. Not that I care. But the cartel would.
  7. I thought advertising was prohibited on this board?
  8. If you don't like the Mexican culture, go back to where you came from.
  9. This is not true at all. Last year, and this year, are the most popular years for gringos here ever. Honestly, don't know how this could escape anyone unless they rarely escape from their gated neighborhoods. Also, refugees? Use that word here to describe a gringo and Mexicans won't take you seriously.
  10. It's been reported that your statistics are bullshit.
  11. I will not be shopping at Pancho's, just as I've never shopped at Super Lake. I support my community and local businesses selling Mexican-made products, not a bunch of crap imported from thousands of miles away. I don't wish Pancho's luck.

    They are closed on the last Wednesday of the month.
  13. Some of these parents beat their children if they don't come back with enough money at the end of the day. Those parents aren't going to be holding honest jobs picking berries in Joco, which is about two hours from where they all live anyway, in San Pedro Itzicán, where the kidney disease epidemic is centered. Apparently, at least one father is disabled and unable to work. So no. Not anyone can go to these schools and learn a trade. To compare the life a relatively rich 65-year-old gringo now living overseas to an indigenous person living in abject poverty is... well, quite amazing, actually.
  14. It seems you've forgotten that you're not in Asia, dude. So egg drop soup made by a Thai chef living in the backwaters of Mexico costs 80 pesos? Big whoop. Settle on your 25 pesos burgers from the plaza in San Antonio.
  15. Naw, Mexicans call gringos gringos all the time. It's what they usually call gringos. Just not to your face, unless you're cool.
  16. It's not bullying. Some people need to culturally adjust.
  17. The first thing you should do is redesign your website from scratch. I googled your email address and found your site. Your site is a table-based layout, so it doesn't look good on mobile. Sites need to be mobile friendly today to rank well -- Google just switched the way it indexes sites. It's now a mobile-first instead of desktop -first index. So if your site doesn't work on mobile, you'll see your rankings drop for search queries from people using desktops now. (Add your site to Google Search Console and you'll see a message about how your pages are not mobile friendly. This error is what you need to work on first.) Doing anything else to your site SEO-wise before redesigning it to be mobile friendly will do you very, very little.
  18. The lake is filthy dirty. That's a fancy trick that Todd Stong does every year, but to what end? He's trying to prove that the lake isn't polluted... when it is? Forget about the lake itself -- its pollution travels from the water, through the air and to the towns along the lake. (Read this for more info about that: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mexico-health-village/murky-business-a-hunt-for-answers-as-children-fall-sick-around-mexico-lake-idUSKBN1DY11E) The lake is polluted with heavy metals. Tests confirm this -- just go to Mezcala and check out the huge banner they've posted on the quiósco about this. UNESCO or some similar organization was involved. Certainly trust them much more than some guy named Todd Stong who EVERYONE always brings up whenever lake pollution is mentioned. Compared to even 10 years ago, the lake is filthier than ever -- much filthier than the East Coast of the United States. But compared to 50 years ago, the lake is a radioactive nightmare. Anyone who has been here that long will tell you the lake used to be crystal clear. But, if you don't mind a little kidney disease, go for a swim. A little town not too far from Ajijic has the second-highest kidney disease rate in the world. https://www.google.com.mx/search?ei=o1iyWoWfAfHn5gKLkJhQ&q=kidney+disease+lake+chapala&oq=kidney+disease+lake+chapala&gs_l=psy-ab.3..33i21k1j33i160k1l2.5878.13061.0.13213.
  19. Adelita and El Barco are fine if he wants to dance with retired gringos. Otherwise, he should go to the Mezcalaria if he wants to spend time getting to know young locals: https://www.facebook.com/LaMezcaAjijic/
  20. This has nothing to do with bandwidth. Now you will have to pay to access certain websites and services. You might not even be able to access this website. It changes the entire internet as we know it. https://www.vox.com/conversations/2017/12/14/16776236/net-neutrality-made-internet-awesome-fcc-vote It will affect the entire world, not just the US: https://www.theverge.com/2017/11/23/16693840/net-neutrality-us-fcc-global-effect All this stuff is freely available for y'all to look up, instead of just posting uninformed statements/questions here on this forum. At least for a little while longer.
  21. ficklepie the insult you wrote was way out of line. Do it again and you will be banned Mod5
  22. The "party" -- which is actually a religious festival -- will be lasting 16 days this year in this "tourist town" (whatever that is) / "expat area" (which it's not -- it's Mexican). So have fun! http://semanariolaguna.com/32733/ The music that was here a couple weeks back was a national act, Chuy Lizarraga. It was advertised heavily. He plays in little bullrings all over Mexico as well as in bigger cities, which you can clearly see in the advertisements. (Check out their Facebook page.) They, of course, are not "from around here." And so? Most of the people who bought tickets for the show were from Ajijic or the neighboring towns. Anyone (Mexican) who wanted a ticket could easily buy one and many, many locals go to these events. Just 'cause you don't have any Mexican friends on Facebook posting live streams of the concert while it's actually going on, doesn't mean it didn't happen. Maincoons has entirely mischaracterized just about everything, including equating these events to "raves." I'm quite dubious he's ever been to one of those. But he's obviously never been to the rodeo. Anyway, the general consensus among the Mexican crowd (just so everyone knows) is that you guys complain a lot about stuff, like the fiestas. This was just voluntarily confirmed to me (for the bazillionth time) last night by someone specifically regarding the noise and the fiestas.
  23. Just the thought of shoving a disgusting piece of Perry's pizza into my mouth makes me want to vomit.
