    How to learn Spanish?

    I don't need to visit India to know that around 40% of its schools lack toilets. But at least students will learn the English word for "toilet." https://www.gse.harvard.edu/news/ed/18/01/why-toilets-matter

    How to learn Spanish?

    "On a micro level, improved English skills allow individuals to apply for better jobs and raise their standards of living." No shit, Sherlock. It doesn't take a degree from HBS to point out that having legs makes it easier to walk. The scatterplots provided in the article don't prove anything...

    How to learn Spanish?

    There is little correlation between economic development and the English language. It's strange that you used India as an example, the entire Indian subcontinent remains one of the poorest regions on Earth even though English is one of the official languages. The only tangible benefit to being...

    Reduced flight schedules and current entry / exit requirements

    They would make it difficult to walk.

    How to learn Spanish?

    So, how did you get into the country at a time when almost all foreigners are barred from entering?

    Picking up money without ID

    All this time I thought it was spelled fecetious.

    How can I locate a friend who seems to have disappeared?

    How good of a friend is this person if you don't have his phone number, don't know any relatives of his, and don't have any friends in common who you could ask about his well-being? Sounds more like he ghosted you.

    Citizenship

    Well, the idea is that you would commit the offense while outside the country.

    Citizenship

    Perhaps an option would be to get the government to strip you of your citizenship, not unlike when you have a crazy girlfriend with whom you can't break up because she'll stab you and burn down your house, and you instead trick her into breaking up with you. Many countries will take away...

    Requesting US residency for Argentine parent

    Whatever political rhetoric around immigration has been over the past few years, the actual laws and procedures haven't changed much. I have a close relative who works with CBP and the biggest mistake most people make is to try to change their status while on a tourist visa. In most cases, the...

    Why do you choose Argentina?

    The first and third world labels are themselves very outdated since they go back to the Cold War-era world order, and had more to do with political alignment than economic development. Looking at the most recent UN HDI rankings, Argentinal is about in the same range as poorer southern and...

    Why do you choose Argentina?

    Much of the USA is actually pretty shitty and "third-world." Anyone thinking of immigrating should subscribe to this Youtube channel first.

    Venting on BAexpats...

    My comparison was specifically on the similarity between the cult of personality of Trump and Peron, and the irrational devotion their followers both have regardless of what their policies actually were. Trump 2016 ran as a xenophobe and a populist, promising huge infrastructure spending and a...

    Venting on BAexpats...

    LOL. Trumpism is more of a Peronist movement than anything on the left in the USA currently. JD Perón's support base came from a similar demographic as well: the forgotten and politically disenfranchised working class for whom he came became both a savior and a martyr.

    Argentina Can’t Pay $45 Billion IMF Loan Cristina says

    The IMF could be described as people loaning money that's not theirs to people who expect other people to pay it back.

    Are food and drinks being adulterated to deal with the lockdowns and inflation?

    Lavandina is also a secret ingredient in many Argentinian butcher shops. http://verdadnoticias.com.ar/2020/04/10/un-supermercado-lavaba-carne-podrida-con-lavandina-para-poder-venderla/

    Reduced flight schedules and current entry / exit requirements

    A 10-day quarantine upon arrival doesn't seem very practical. Neither does living under a perpetual state of emergency and a nightly curfew. Unlike the lazy alfajor-eating CABA police, the Pacos in Chile don't mess around. https://thepointsguy.com/guide/chile-reopening/

    Why I am not planning on taking the vaccine any time soon, if ever

    People do that all the time. It's called cosmetic surgery.

    Why I am not planning on taking the vaccine any time soon, if ever

    I don't understand the anti-vax paranoia, most humans already have levels of PCBs and other things in their bodies that are probably more dangerous than whatever is in the COVID-19 vaccine...
