Let's go straight to business :

I kid you not. That literally and exactly says, "closed for duel", as in "combate entre dos personas que se han desafiado o retado previamente", and gives the time and date of the funeral.

I have no fucking idea.

The aliens have landed.

The one above is actually taken through the lens seen below. If you strain you can actually make out a pigeon in the upper left.

Pareidolia is the misrecognition of faces in various configurations of inanimate objects.

But let's move on from luxury to reality :

What are those, you ask ? Why, they're electric meters. Individual electric meters. To go with this wonder :

No, they're not for individual people. They're for individual families, made up from anywhere between half a dozen and uncountably many ... people. Let's continue.

Are you an architect ? No ? That's ok, neither is Pili.

Other than a vibrant night life, the city village of Buenos Aires also enjoys a rich skater and skateboarder culture, as proven by this abundance of one single U ramp.

  1. nu era mai aproape sa te fi mutat in Ferentari? ca tot aia.

  2. Taking advantage of the sprouting of the herbaceous stratum that follows a burning in the Cerrado, the aboriginal inhabitants of these regions learned to use the fire as a tool, to increase the fodder to offer to their domesticated animals.

    Well, "duelo" has two different meanings, the other one being "mourning". Maybe that'd make a little more sense.

    Yeah. Wouldn't make nearly as good an article though, would it.

  6. What I don't get is why the shopkeeper left that address? So, he's indicating to which mortuary he went? Or it's the name/address of the actual closed business?

    It's quite interesting that in Argitana people actually mourn, cause duelo is no longer used in Castilian like that.
    They'd say, cerrado por defunciĆ³n, or more privately, asuntos personales.

    Spanish Law talks about permiso por fallecimiento, skipping work because death, as in, not the act but the object.

    Yes, that's the point, that ~nobody uses the word like that anymore.
