coffee-200.jpgThe folks over at Freakonomics wonder if the best way to ensure you're getting decaf coffee at a restaurant is to try to trick your waiter. Instead of asking if the coffee is what you ordered, ask if it's the opposite of what you ordered: "Ask instead: 'Is this regular coffee?'...It's not fool proof, but asking 'is it regular' will let you know whether the waiter is willing to say 'yes' to any question." Sneaky. [Freakonomics]
