Low tech, high tech?

Esta es la estilográfica con la que escribo ahora. Como se ve, es de diseño antiguo (tiene unos 30 años). En la foto parece muy chula, pero no lo es tanto, está baqueteada.

A mí el boli me parecía una cosa muy práctica. De residente, un médico de mi servicio despertó mi interés por las plumas y llegué a tener tres. Una me la robaron (Waterman), otra era mala (Schaefer), y ésta. No falla. Escribe bien.

Me llama la atención la cantidad de bolis desechables que he evitado tirar. Evito el despilfarro de plástico y la contaminación, porque en teoría no se puede echar el boli gastado al contenedor amarillo. Me basta con comprar un frasco de tinta cada 6 meses o así.

Está bien volver a soluciones de baja tecnología, que se apoyan en la reutilización de los recursos, en vez del usar y tirar. Esta pluma puede seguir funcionando durante otros 10 años perfectamente, evitando así la compra de al menos un kilo de plástico, partes de metal, etc.

Hombre, tiene algún inconveniente como el riesgo de manchas, pero eso es igual que el boli. Y no se puede prestar, lo cual alarga su vida.
Otra cosa que he hecho es comprar una barra de jabón de afeitado y una brocha. El afeitado es igual, o mejor, y tardo lo mismo que antes. La ventaja: ocupa menos, pesa menos, y sobre todo no supone un despilfarro de aluminio en el bote que se desecha. Los botes de aerosol son de aluminio, y éste es el metal que más electricidad consume para su elaboración (¿una tonelada de petróleo por kg?).

No he notado la pérdida de la publicidad de “comodidad, rapidez, placer, etc….” Chorradas. Así que, en esto de la técnica, a veces todo paso atrás es uno adelante. Prepárate, Guillermito Puertas.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on www.blogger.com. I decided to find a good manufacturer of e-cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for normal cigarettes.A friend recommended [url=http://www.insanereleases.info/greensmokef.html]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with disposable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a collection of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented product offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
