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 defunción, 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.
