    But it's more than six months old so it's out of the guarantee period.

    Even though the costs of hard goods is expensive in Uruguay (mainly due to import tax and IVA on top of both) it is virtually impossible to obtain more than six months warranty on anything.

    I would be surprised if it's any different in Brazil.

    Brazil is out of warranty. In UK news,
    Anyone who goes to Brazil in these circumstances are out of their tiny minds. Why doesn't Scotland go? Their minds are tiny enough!

    Warranty for English is more Brazilian debt. Do not worry. We pay us and we do not need more money. Their products do not meet our needs also. Much toxin.

    Viva o Brasil!

    Who knows, they might, The English need big heads as their “brains” are based on stone-age technology. They are still stuck in the dark ages. The Scots, Irish and Welsh have developed their mental faculties over the same period and are aeons ahead of your beloved “Essex” man.
    Keep the racist posts coming - you don't seem to have anything else to say.

    It does tend to rain a bit, in tropical Brasil in particular
    - especially in the rain-forest, and even more heavily in the 'rainy season'.
    People do get wet;
    roofs leak;
    roads get washed away;
    people drown.
    It's that sort of country.

    In the same way - Qatar will be hot during the 2022 World Cup.
    It's that sort of country.

    Englands chances of winning the world cup again....ZERO.

    Some scots will go, allot won't because they simply don't have the money.
    The English? ahh, they will go, they love football and don't mind to get more in debt. For morons like conqueror and the other idiot that claims to live in Uruguay but can't speak one word Spanish..., have shit to spend (and that's why they bitch in front of a

    I'm going and look forward for it..and I wish everybody (include those fluoride drinking ugly brits with bad teeth ) a Happy new year everybody and wish you all a prosperous 2014 :D

    Scotland has a chance
    Wales have a chance
    Ireland has a chance
    England has a chance,[ in 2014 ]
    Miracles do happen,
    But brazil is my tip,
    But failing that, who ever wins, it will be well earned,

    Look on the bright side, we brits have four chances every time, all the time,
    And still centuries, to win that elusive cup,

    [ sooner or later ] lolol…

    just a game,,,,

    @4 It's hard to understand your perspective. Looking at Scotland, for example, after many years of evolution, it has produced its pinnacle of achievement. Alex Salmond! An individual bent on persuading Scottish people that the efforts of 5 million people are more beneficial than those of 63 million. Using population for comparison, we can see how well Turkmenistan is doing! The Welsh have advanced their mental faculties to the point where they can urge the UK government not to give Salmond what he wants. Equally, the Northern Irish have advanced to the point of deciding to be “British” instead of “Irish”. Not being “racist”, the UK government is still trying to get Scots, for whom they are still responsible, to understand that Salmond is an inept, power-hungry, racist charlatan. An individual who spent £48,000 of taxpayers' money taking himself and hangers-on to Los Angeles to attend the premiere of an animated movie! Have Scottish officials really needed to make more than 32,000 flights around the world in the last six years? Have they not heard of the telephone? Mental faculties? You jest.
    @6 It's not the winning. It's the taking part. Isn't that what Maradona said?
    @9 Are you back with your drivel, doggie? Apart from sitting in front of my computer bitching, I have recently banked the equivalent of 237,160 argie pesos. That was to add to the 107,800 I already had. Does that qualify as having “shit to spend”? You really must stop your bile bubbling up. If you're not careful, you will (hopefully) choke yourself to death. Then I wouldn't have so much to laugh at!
    @10 I don't understand how Ireland, Wales and Scotland have “a chance” if they aren't going. How does that work?
    @11 You have to understand that “some” Scots are hypocritically desperate. No way of paying England the more than £2 quadrillion they owe, they adopt the “argie style”. Always “victims”. Being “victims”, they get things for free that the English pay for.
