How can I get my wife/husband to...

Economist Dan Ariely has an interesting post on what boyfriends/girlfriends are searching for.

I thought - what about the husbands and wives of the world?


  • most folks are looking to get in love again
  • husbands are looking to steal facebook passwords (two words: keystroke logger)
  • husbands are also looking to get their wife to fall in love at all, whether or not it is again

Freedom Win - Safety Fail

We ran out of coffee beans this morning so I went to Starbucks. The news-stand said it all:

Front page headline for Denver Post:

U.S. closing door on Guantanamo, torture

Front page third column headline from New York Times:

Freed by U.S. Saudi Becomes A Qaeda Chief - Linked to Yemen Blast After Guantanamo

I guess as my friend Travis Jo said about her Peace Corps experience "International development [and security and...] is tricky."

Buenos Aires Microbrews - Argentine Artesenal

I've been in Argentina for almost two months and finally found some decent beers. Quilmes and Brahma and friends are, frankly, not going to cut it for me.

Buller Brewing Company

The first place that was recommended to me was Buller Brewing Company (ratebeer review) which turned out to be pretty good. They have a selection of about 8 beers which were all decent, though none were really amazing. The dry stout was probably the best variety that they had. I went to the location near Recoleta cemetery which of course is a nice tourist area on its own.

Cossab Cerveza Artesanal

In a non touristy location is Cossab - at Carlos Calvo 4199 - which is just a standard corner bar which happens to serve hundreds of local and international beers. The international selection is dominated by Dutch/Belgian varieties and a few standards (Guinnes - duh). In addition to great beers, Cossab also has quite good food including a Wednesday Night "Pizza Libre" night where "Libre" means all you can eat instead of just "free". For 10 Pesos, it's a good deal.
