RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Full Tank of Gas in Venezuela < 1 Gallon of Gas in U.S. - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

Here is an article that should twist your underwear in a knot.

Energy Crisis? Venezuela Gas Is Cheaper Than Water
http://today.reuters.com/news/newsartic ... rss&rpc=22

"Those gringos have everything -- so why does their gas cost so much?" asked Tinoco between chuckles as he navigated a midday traffic jam. "Don't they have oil reserves?"

Excuse me, but isn't "gringo" a pejorative term, that would be censored if it referred to South Americans? Of course that is a rhetorical question, and of course the answer is, "Yes, it would be censored."

From Dictionary.com
gringo
n : a Latin American (disparaging) term for foreigners (especially Americans and Englishmen)

From Answers.com
grin·go (grĭng'gō)
n. Offensive Slang., pl. -gos.
Used as a disparaging term for a foreigner in Latin America, especially an American or English person.

Aren't double standards great when you can get away with it?
