    I no longer drink. But you guys can't smell the difference between Tequila and thinner? Tequila, even the cheap.

    Stuff has a very distinct smell. So does thinner.

    Avoid booze worth counterfeiting?

    Expensive liquor like Tequila apparently is worth counterfeiting with refilled bottles and paint thinner and tequila flavored powder but cheap drinks like beer is not. Seems to me that cheap mixed drinks with vodka or rum (Cuba libres or daiquiris) or beer would be safe while expensive drinks like Tequila are the ones to worry about. If you wake up on the floor in a pool of vomit with a bad hangover, you'll know that you got a paint thinner shot of Tequila!

    The Zona is relatively safe now. But one has always keep a eye out for the bandito's. It is also important to try and keep up on crime trends in Tijuana as well. The Tijuana administration still needs to do a lot more to curb police corruption.

My guess is that the city and people of Tijuana have lost millions in tourist dollars from losing the US Navy guys on leave due to the cartel problems and the Tijuana politicians know that, which is why they cracked down on the yellow cabbies when they attacked tourists. Can you imagine Chicago or Detroit closing down the taxis due to tourist conflicts? Tijuana did it.

    Twenty-six people were murdered the first week of July in Tijuana for a total of 793 in the city and a total of 1,023 in the state of Baja for the course of the year. Most murders are associated with rival narcos disputing over territory killing either by gunshot wounds, strangulations, decapitations, or / and incinerations.

    With the 19 murders recorded between Friday 4 and Monday, August 7, 2017, the statistics of violent deaths reached 947 events in Tijuana. 42 murders the first seven days of the month. 9 murders for Los Cabos for the same period. (Google translate).

    Liquor Tax Evasion equals Tainted Tequila

    " . . . The market for counterfeit alcohol in Mexico is driven in part by steep taxes on spirits —more than 53% in excise tax alone — and, in the case of tequila, the expense of producing it, Ancira said. . .

    Many of the tourists who described blackouts said they had been drinking tequila. . . The mood was cheerful. Gordon and her boyfriend, both in their early 20's, chatted with a couple sitting on the stools nearby, when the bartender brought them two shots of tequila.

    Neither can recall what happened next. They learned later from Gordon's parents, who were sitting poolside, that they had been escorted back to their room by security. They had both been throwing up. They both blacked out.

    "We both thought it was strange" said Gordon. "Neither of us reacts like that to alcohol. . We felt way too sick for what we had to drink."

    Must have been potent tequila, they figured. . . ".

    Apparently the popular drink to spike with wood alcohol is Tequila. If you are a Tequila drinker, only drink from unopened bottles unless you don't mind "throwing up. . . And blacking out" or worse like going blind. . . From wood alcohol.

  9. #1424

    Wood Alcohol or Methanol?

    Back during Prohibition, alcoholics would substitute wood alcohol for drinking, with the side effect of going blind then death. Even today, hard core alkies will go and buy mouthwash and chug it to satisfy their need to drink when they can't get real booze. My guess is that possibly alky bartenders or staff drank the real stuff the owner of the tourist bar bought for customers then covered up the theft by substituting wood alcohol, but they cut too much wood alcohol into the mix. A little wood alcohol added to a bottle would likely cause a severe hangover but too much. These tourist resorts need to find out if any of the staff are alkies and stealing booze to drink themselves. Because then they water the booze down or worse case, substitute wood alcohol to cover the loss of expensive booze. The only real defense a tourist has against this is drinking from unopened beer or liquor bottles so you know the liquor hasn't been "watered down" or worse.

    Be careful what you drink in Mexico, especially at cheap all you can eat and all you can drink resorts. Prices are too cheap, managements have to cut corners somewhere, likely serving chemicals-laced, adulterated booze.

    Also, again, not disputing the premise, but for a monger's sake in another country avoiding trouble in Chicago to any other big US city might be easier as a native. Visiting a foreign country presents a different set of challenges. I'm not saying Chicago is safer or vice versa. But I also think it's a bit of apples and oranges.

    That said, violence is definitely on the rise lately. But it will not deter me. In fact, I bumped my trip up about 1 month. With all the information and tips provided here, I am not overly concerned about safety. Be smart, do not associate with drug dealers, maintain a reasonable level of sobriety, treat people with respect, know your surroundings and you'll be fine.
    Tijuana already has 700+ murders for the year. Considered one of the deadliest cities in Mexico. Crime is on the rise. Most murders are amongst people involved in the drug business. There will be innocent bystanders just like anywhere else in the world.

    I think you hit it on the nail. Don't get involved with drug dealers. I'll grant you, many of the girls are involved in the business but they won't bother you cause you're providing them business. It won't be good for the business if they start biting the hand that feeds them. Don't attract attention by being a loudmouth and flashing your money cause then it's a whole different story. I mongered in Tijuana for many years without ever being bothered by the girls, the locals or the cops.

    Shootout. Narcos Take their war into Hot Beach Resorts

    Riviera entrepreneur says he's had enough; turns vigilante.

    "Carlos Mimenza won't say whether the 200-man team he's assembled carry guns. "I'll have to leave it to your imagination. My lawyers don't let me talk about it."

    But they fly drones. They wear masks. Some are skilled hackers, hired from the Anonymous collective. They operate out of a luxury cabin in the woods, its entrance screened by a waterfall. And they claim to have the local governor, along with senior officials and cops, under surveillance 24 hours a day. Because Mimenza, a real-estate developer, says Mexico's authorities are responsible for the spread of violence and extortion, colluding with the country's drug cartels instead of protecting entrepreneurs like him.

    It's not surprising that many tourists aren't aware of the (Cartel) killings going on around them. Recent murders haven't always made the front pages of the local papers left in hotel lobbies. That's no accident.

    Cancun's authorities have urged local media to tone down the coverage, according to two people with knowledge of the matter. The cartels, meanwhile, have different methods but a similar agenda. "They don't want to sabotage themselves, because the moment it's in the news then tourism, the goose that lays the golden egg, dries up," said Schtulmann."

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...-beach-resorts

    So the tourism businesses are protecting tourists in Mexico by becoming vigilantes against the corrupt politicians. Free enterprise to the rescue! Maybe the Hong Kong Club management should be put in charge of the Tijuana policia except the HK management would probably order the policia to arrest the Tijuana politicians for screwing up the tourist business!

    USC's dean School of Medicine busted with overdosed prostitute

    This guy is an accomplished ophthalmologist, paid $1.1 M a year as the dean of USC's School of Medicine, plus whatever cash and expenses he can weasel out of various research grants that he brings into the school.

    He was so loaded with money that he was paying a prostitute to hang out and party with him full time, renting apartments and luxury hotels for her, and bringing her and her drugs friends to his USC office to party and consume drugs. He was caught with drugs and this overdosed 22 YO prostitute, Sarah Warren, in his hotel room. Pasadena Fire the took the girl to hospital. Pasadena cop A. Garcia was probably bribed by the good doctor, thus conveniently skip filing a crime report. An eyewitness at the hotel called Pasadena town hall, USC president, then LA Times to make sure the incident is investigated. Don't know what grudge he / she held against the good doctor. Damn.

    Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito lost his USC Dean job, got a job with a biotech company but was laid off after 6 months. It's safe to say his career as a physician, professor and researcher is ruined for good due to this ugly little drug addicted pussy. Nobody would hire him with that notoriety. USC and the US government will also be auditing his spending for any clues that he misspent grants money on prostitutes and drugs. He won't be able to look anyone in the eyes again. His life is ruined due to an below average-looking drug addict with an ugly fat face, droopy boobs and saggy stomach, whom I would not even fuck for fear of diseases.

    Syracuse you's Dean of Management was also busted in a prostitution sting this year and lost his $600 K a year job. The urge for sex sure ruined a lot of otherwise good, bright, productive people in the US. Something needs change so we don't waste all these talents just because they want a few romps in bed. These guys should move closer to Tijuana to party and have serious fun with hot, girls and to have as much sex as they can stand without having their dicks fall off.

    No wonder all jobs, including teaching, preaching, doctoring, in San Diego are so hotly sought after. Hehe.

    In USC's lecture halls, labs and executive offices, Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito was a towering figure. The dean of the Keck School of Medicine was a renowned eye surgeon whose skill in the operating room was matched by a gift for attracting money and talent to the university.

    There was another side to the Harvard-educated physician.

    During his tenure as dean, Puliafito kept company with a circle of criminals and drug users who said he used methamphetamine and other drugs with them, a Los Angeles Times investigation found.

    In all of my border crossings, which admittedly are less than 20, I've never taken the yellow cabs at the border. They can be aggressive. But I would always walk to the street and find a Taxi Libre just on principle.
