11 videos que demuestran que el metro de la CDMX es peor que Mordor

El metro es lo mejor que le ha pasado a los mexicanos desde que el Chicharito se fue a jugar a Europa, o tal vez desde antes. Sin embargo, no todo es risas y conitos de McDonald’s, a veces la cosa se puede poner de verdad ruda.

Si las bocinas de los ambulantes a niveles bestiales de volumen (justo a la altura de nuestros oídos) no son tortura, entonces yo no sé qué es.

Además de que nunca le atinan a nuestros gustos con sus mezclas de banda, reggaetón y pop electrónico que avergonzaría a la mismísima Belinda.

Y lo peor: ver a niñitos que deberían estar en la guardería o el Kinder, pedir dinero o vender cosas (eso sí es terrible).

Los músicos del metro que destrozan a The Beatles. Claro, podría ser peor, pero estos especímenes que se sienten John y Paul y no distinguen el edificio Apple del complejo de viviendas del Metro Portales que ven desde la ventanilla del vagón.

La voz de los vagoneros. En serio, los oyes hablar y hablan normal, los escuchas vender algo y su voz se transforma en algo horrendo. ¿O es que en el casting de vagoneros les dicen que mientras más horrendo sea su tono de voz más venden? Pero claro, lo anterior no es nada comparado a que se DROGUEN en la vagón.

La muletilla de decir “10 pesos le vale, 10 pesos le cuesta” y no se tomen la molestia de variarle. TODOS los vendedores dicen lo mismo con el mismo tono. Y como si lo anterior no fuera suficiente, que a todo le pongan el artículo “LA” antes de la marca. Es decir, venden paletas y las promocionan como “paletas de LA Coronado” y así a todo… Aunque claro, hay unos que son buena onda y regalan dinero…

Las recopilaciones de CD pirata en las que Aerosmith y El Tri son “indies”, y Soda Stereo es rock mexicano. Sin embargo, a veces hay discos tan horribles que resultan buenísimos ya que incluyen canciones que no recordábamos que existían…y nos vemos obligados a comprarles por la nostalgia.

Los espectáculos masoquistas. Sí, me refiero a los tipos que despliegan clavos y vidrios y luego se retuercen sobre ellos para que les des dinero. Además, la mayoría de ellos son una farsa: son vidrios de plástico.

Las guerras territoriales, como si fueran “The Warriors” de Metro Balderas.

Aunque a veces estas batallas sean pongan muy interesantes y pasionales.

Y el peor/mejor video: un payaso recriminando porque la gente no se ríe de sus chistes, en el metro de la CDMX reír no es una opción… es supervivencia.

Viva Mexico Is Trending On Twitter Proving That Mexico Is More Than Just A Country

It is Mexico’s Independence Day and that means that Mexicans around the world are honoring their roots. Twitter is buzzing with people who might not be in Mexico but they will forever have Mexico in their hearts. Here are just a few of the loving messages from people who are Mexican through and through.

Viva Mexico is trending on social media and the tweets are filled with love and passion for the country.

Mexico received its independence from Spain on September 16, 1810 and since then the day has been marked with celebration. The day is marked with parties of pride and culture no matter where you are in the world.

Mexicans everywhere are letting their Mexican flag fly.

Tbh, who doesn’t want to be Mexican to enjoy the day of puro pinche pride? The celebration for Mexican Independence Day starts on Sept. 15 with El Grito. The tradition is that the president of Mexico stands on the balcony on Sept. 15 at 11 p.m. and rings the same church bell that Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang in 1810 to trigger the Mexican Revolution.

People are loving all of the celebrations for their homeland.

The original El Grito took place in Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato in 1810. While most El Grito celebrations take place at the National Palace, some presidents, especially on their last year, celebrate El Grito in the town where it originated.

Honestly, no one celebrates their independence day like Mexico and we love them for it.

¡Viva Mexico! Mexico lindo y querido. How are you celebrating the Mexican Independence Day this year? Show us what you have planned.

Volunteer Firefighters From Mexico Went to Oregon to Help Their “Sister City” Contain the Unprecedented Fires

Volunteer Firefighters From Mexico Went to Oregon to Help Their “Sister City” Contain the Unprecedented Fires

Just when you thought humanity has failed us, someone steps up and shows the world that the generosity of the human spirit is alive and well. 

Last week, a post on Reddit went viral of a group of volunteer firefighters from Guanajuato, Mexico who traveled to the city of Ashland, Oregon to help fight the wildfires that are blazing across the western state.

The fire department is called Heroico Cuerpo de Bomberos Voluntarios, the Heroic Volunteer Fire Department, in English.

The two towns have had a “sister city” relationship for over 50 years. Sister-city relationships are meant to “promote peace and understanding through exchanges that focus on arts and culture, youth and education, business and trade, and community development”.

The internet swiftly erupted into comments praising the volunteer firefighters for their bravery and comradery. “Mexico also sent relief during Katrina. Mexico and Canada are our best allies, always there for us regardless of the politics,” one commenter said. Another chimed in: “Welcome to Oregon, amigos. Mantenga una bota en el quemado.”

The troop of men who traveled from Mexico to the United States were identified as Captain Aldo Iván Ruiz, Captain Juan Armando Alvarez Villegas, Sargent Jorge Luis Anguiano Jasso, Sargent Luis Alfonso Campos Martínez and Miguel Ángel Hernández Lara. They were accompanied by the mayor of Guanajuato, Alejandro Navarro.

“We began the relief work,” Navarro wrote on Twitter. “Very moved by the terrible impact of the fire on families and their homes.”

The Oregon wildfires are just one of the many that are blazing down the West Coast of the United States, taking people’s homes, land, and sometimes, their lives. In more than 1 million acres have burned and two dozen fires are still raging.

“Almost every year since becoming governor, I’ve witnessed historic fire seasons,” Oregon Governor Kate Brown recently said at a press conference. “Yet this is proving to be an unprecedented and significant fire event for our state.”

Experts are hypothesizing that these unprecedented fires are further evidence of the toll man-made climate change is having on the environment.

“I can’t think of any time over the last 100 years where we’ve had serial fire outbreaks, four years running,” said fire historian Stephen Pyne to the Washington Post. “That I can find no record of happening before,” he added. “That is the big switch; that is the phase change.”

Regardless of what has caused the fires, the bravery of these firefighters is worth commendable. Their actions are further proof that borders cannot contain the universal values of kindness, altruism, and brotherhood.
