In the Mexican navy, submarines are known as tortas.

Mexican Navy? lol I picture a uniformed beaner traversing the Rio Grande on an inner tube with a flag on it.

Cordoba famous for its corinthian leather.

I hate to ask the obvious question, but how did this guy get the name 'El Pokemon'?
 
2012-12-30 04:27:18 PM
Somewhat CSB, but there is a Latino truck mechanic I know who is called Pikachu. He actually resembles the character in a most striking (albeit non-yellow) fashion.

Mexican Navy? Similar to the British Space Program?

The standard Mexican naval outfit while out to sea is cutoff Dickies and a wife beater.

Either he bore a striking resemblance to one of the many Pokemon creatures-perhaps Geoduck-or he was an avid fan/card collector, a hobby he happily indulged in when he wasn't killing cops or rival cartel members.


GIS-ing has failed to support either supposition, but you might have better luck.

That's also one of the cartel's most feared punishments.

A quick hypothetical. Lets accept the fact that pretty much everyone who wants to use drugs is already using drugs. If we were to legalize heroin tonight, there would be no huge influx of people heading to the heroin store for a needle and some smack. Likewise with meth and crack and such, everyone who wants to tweak or be a crackhead is already doing it, legality be damned.

What if we as a country were to legalize and localize much of this drug production? Not only would our domestic hard drug use fall dramatically, the money that is spent on drugs would go to Americans, not rabid third world animals who dismember and mass murder each other for fun. Not even to make a profit, take all the money from the drug sales and put it straight into rehabilitation/awareness for the social benefit of the country. Portugal decriminalized hard drugs over a decade ago, and hard drug use fell by half. Source: Forbes. Turns out when you spend money actually trying to help people, instead of paying to lock them in holes, people start to get better.

Imagine how much taxpayer money would be freed up if we were only paying to incarcerate half of the current population for drugs. Wikipedia says "Perhaps the single greatest force behind the growth of the prison population has been the national war on drugs.The number of incarcerated drug offenders has increased twelvefold since 1980. In 2000, 22 percent of those in federal and state prisons were convicted on drug charges." Do away with the way on drugs mentality that packs prisoners into convict college at taxpayer expense, and start helping people with their problems at a fundamental level.

It would be interesting to see what would happen in Mexico if we decided to legalize and localize our drug production. The current clown show between wannabe Tony Montanas would cease to exist, or exist on a much smaller level. Id imagine a probable uptake in fraud and other type crimes as they scramble in a futile attempt to regain lost revenue, before they eventually cease to exist. These cartels are nothing without American drug money in their pockets.

All I get is weird pages about drugs and Pokemon...not a surprising result, drugs were CLEARLY involved at some point in Pokemon's conception.

I'd like to think its because he caught all his enemies...in tiny little balls.

Is it just me, or are Pokemon names onomatopoeias of Dubstep music?

In another article, one of the interviewed Marines said that the gang almost got away with it. One of the guys was doing some surveillance, when one of the gang members was looking around the corner, but suddenly sneezed, was heard by a guard and the whole plan then went to hell.

My Spanish is rusty, but he said it was basically a peek achoo, that sealed their fate.

Yeah but we have a private prison industry and a large populace of idiots who feel that imprisoning addicts is what's best for them.

Your "fact" is mere opinion. Why should we accept your premise that legality has no effect on the rates of drug usage?
