On The Pickup Artists of PUAHate

i draw some comfort from the fact that by the looks of things, these men are not getting laid, and so a) probably will not reproduce and b) are not being rewarded for their (lack of?) efforts.

On Friday Open Thread

@BethroTull I am in Costa Rica for the summer! Manuel Antonio National Park (Puntarenas) is a little crowded and tourist-y, but is surrounded by restaurants and hostels and hotels. The park has lots of trails, iguanas, capuchin monkeys, raccoons (unfortunately), and four beaches within it. While I am not a beach expert, I have rarely felt so blissed out as I did when bobbing in the waves on Manuel Antonio's main beach - very swimmer friendly.

I have yet to get to Guanacaste but I have heard that you really can't go wrong with any of the beaches there. Nosara is known for its yoga teacher training center and general beauty.

Be prepared for the humidity and torrential rain! It doesn't rain constantly during the wet season, but when it rains (in the afternoons) it certainly does pour.
