    @1 What's an “RG” (argie)? Is it like a “yeti”? A sub-human, hairy, predator that “inhabits” a wilderness. A danger to human beings that needs to be caged or shot on sight!

    #3: That's the usual treatment for all foreigners, I assume. Queue up central americans, africans and arabs!. Not bad for a civilized guy!

    An RG or argie or argy, is someone that can become Queen, Pope or win four Balón de Oro in Football. We can be there, doing a great job, even better than the europeans or northamericans. Its a global world, everyone can be everywhere. jajaaja

    @6. You are right. Individually there are many talented argentines, unfortunately as a country it's such a mess, you're the laughing stock in so many ways. Being a collective mess is so common, you guys even use your own word for it - quilombo. And that's the perfect word to describe Argentina and I know many argentines would agree with me.
