Thank you so much Marcio, for your friendly advice. I am trying to keep away from them, you bet.
This days in here odd things are happening. I ruined one wrist-watch at work, when I worked with a machine and at the same time I scratched my hand (but fortunately, nothing grave then).
And as the machine is powered with 380V we were extra-careful; even so, I was a three times victim of electrical shock (a copper wire abraded and ill isolated and wet, an explosive combination). Anyway, the cord was isolated because I feel like a 110 or 220V shock, that I am somehow well acquainted to. My team co-worker had some ill fated contact as well, only in the machine not the wire.
We had a deadline, so we had to give the risk a try; we managed finish the task without major incidents. Soon we are going to ask a replacement of the wire or proper isolation of it.
Yesterday I read in a local newspaper (A Tribuna do Norte) that the bus fares would be decreased in 5 cents today; wow! such a nice surprise.
But, in reality, I think they were early in the April´s fool prank, they must joked in advance; for when I got into the bus the fare was 1,75 R$. When I asked why the decreasing didn´t take effect the guy showed a preliminary order where the company was granted to continue charging 1,75 R$. Kiss 5 cents bye, for the time being.
I also saw in cable TV that the authorities and the water service company (CAERN) are studying and discussing how to make a submarine emissary in Natal.
Funny enough; I have seen nobody (from the streets, the average joe) in the plenary sitting panel; only the technicians and politicians (a few to be precise, less than necessary to a so important city affair).
However, there is a reason to this fact; the project was not divulged in any of mainstream midia in here (maybe into some paper, in the corner of some obscure page in 4-size type letters (or smaller than that). And the average population have not cable TV, they have to watch soap operas and others diversions.
