    Ultimate Frisbee game

    Hello, does anyone know where I might be able to play ultimate frisbee in Buenos Aires? Back in the day there was a weekly pick-up game at Ciudad Universitaria, but I know that is gone. Anyone have any leads or tips? Thank you,

    Bringing new merch into Argentina

    Hello, I live in the US, have a permanent DNI, and will be visiting Buenos Aires next month. A friend is having me bring him a drone valued at $1,500 USD. Can I expect to have to pay taxes (50%?) on the value of this drone? I am assuming I'll have to declare the amount of the drone on a customs...

    New Bilingual Dictionary (Span-Eng) of Argentine Regionalisms

    That is great that you want two copies :) On occasion I consulted the Diccionario del habla de los argentinos when compiling my dictionary. I used to try to get my hands on all the (serious) monolingual dictionaries I could find. Also went and tried to make myself a friend of the Academia...

    New Bilingual Dictionary (Span-Eng) of Argentine Regionalisms

    "Coger" with the vulgar meaning of "to screw" is included in the dictionary as well. As this definition of "coger" is not used in the majority of Spanish-speaking countries, it classifies as a regionalism.

    For now it is available in book form in Argentina. I do have some copies at home here in the US (California) if you are interested and would like to send me a PM (don't really know if that is allowed on here).

    New Dni Card (Have Old Booklet)

    Thank you for the answers, unfortunately the link provided above I had already checked and it does not contemplate my simple situation--which is unusual. The only info I have found so far is that renewals are handled through the Comunas in Bs As, but I don't know if that applies for foreigners...

    Dear People Scared Of The (Big) Government

    Dear People Scared Of The (Big) Government

    Dear people scared of the (big) government, This is what’s up: we all know that beauracracy sucks. But, guess what? When the village passed about 10,000 people, things changed. We had to institute rules and regulations and paperwork. You are required to follow all these rules and regulations...

    People Who Like B.a.

    You may go back and tell your wife's Spanish teacher that from the point of view of modern-day linguistics, there is no such thing as proper. 95% of people have their vision clouded by the opinions they hear and read (from misinformed sources) about language.

    People Who Like B.a.

    Let me try again, Rich One. As you say, you don’t know if vos was used 500 years: it was. It comes from Latin just as vous in French (and other similar pronouns in other Romance languages). Vos was used in Old Spanish but fell out of fashion in Spain, but only after some cities/towns we already...

    You discourage the use of "vos"? You're kidding, Im sure. Vos has no plural? Neither does "tu". (Techincally "vos" has a plural; it's "vosotros", used in Spain. "Vos", as you may know, comes from old Spanish, and "vosotros" is "vos" plus "otros".) That "locally modified" imperative dates back at...
