Why you (and I) should read more fiction.

Where is the center of the universe? Answer: there isn’t one.

What is your dog thinking?

Uh-oh.

Don’t punch a fire extinguisher.

Argentina’s paper The Nation has an interesting article (in Spanish) about capital flight.

“La directora de la Aduana, Siomara Ayerán, explicó ante los medios que estos perros son especialmente entrenados para detectar el olor de la tinta de los billetes y que la dirección de Aduanas de Estados Unidos prestó colaboración en las tareas de adiestramiento.”

The paragraph above says that “The Director of Customs, Siomara Ayerán, explained before the media that [officials in Argentina] are using specially trained dogs to detect the scent of ink on the bills and that the position of the US Customs office has been to collaborate with the training.” Basically, they really, really don’t want money to leave the country. The dogs found one BMW with US$30,000 cash trying to board a ferry to Uruguay.
