How could I quickly move to a different country?
« on: August 27, 2016, 03:24:46 AM »
I wouldn't mind somewhere maybe in the far-east, but I'm not particularly picky at the moment.

Thanks.

It's 3 AM, I'll try to come up with a couple of ideas before the Mods arrive.

What's the hurry?

Are you running from something?  If so...it's not worth it.

You shouldn't run from some place to another....you should pick the place because that's where you want to be.

That's true in all aspects of life:
Don't latch on to the wrong person to heal a broken heart
Don't take a worse job just because you dislike your current boss
Don't become Orthodox because you hate being a pagan

Come because it calls to you.  It is your heart's desire.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Brazil is literally the last place that I would consider. Which in Warren Buffet speak means it's probably a bargain.

What could I do in Brazil? I don't have a passport or drivers license.

Yes, it's a spirit made from sugar cane. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cacha%C3%A7a

You'll usually hear about it with lemon juice and ice (caipirinha) but I like it pure.

I had another idea, if one of use wins a lottery (because you literally cannot win if you do not play), and then someone buys a bunch of land somewhere and puts up money to rush a passports. Which may be the best method.

Does anyone happen to know if I would need paperwork to wash dishes on an Oceanliner?

I'm sure I could google it, but it's not unlikely that there is a member of the National Coast Guard here, and I'm only a little bit curious.

Moving to another country will require you to have a way to support yourself.

Most countries will not allow you to work without a permit or without bringing in a good deal of money to invest in their economy.   Some countries will give you a work permit if you are bringing in a particular desired skillset.

You cannot simply move and get a job.  (in most cases.)

The best way to work / live overseas is;

1)  Become an English teacher for a ESL program.
2)  Have a steady source of unending income from the U.S. already (business, pension, etc.)
3)  Have a good deal of money to start a business in new country.
4)  Have a skillset the country is interested in so they sponsor you for immigration or temp/perm residency.

Getting an expedited passport is easy.

Another way to work / live overseas is to work for the Dept. of State or associated agencies like USAID.  I have worked with the Dept. of State for many years.   There are jobs one can do that are "non-professional" (called Civil Service or Foreign Service Specialist jobs) which pay a salary (not significant usually - but they also provide housing.)   One must have a clean background and a skillset they need.

The down side is that you will not be able to choose your country of assignment.   You could end up anywhere...usually for three year assignments before transfer.

I do most of these already in the good ol' US of A.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

mcarmichael,

Despite your initial comment of "before the mods arrive", Other Topics is a place for random threads or silliness, and your initial post was not breaking any rules, so I've gone out of my way to let this thread have a chance for conversation to start. However, out of 30 replies, 19 of them are yours (usually in rapid succession) which leads me to believe that you don't actually care to have a conversation but instead desire to spam the board with your posts. Your activity in other sections reinforces this belief.

Therefore, I am giving you a warning of +40 points. If you wish to appeal this decision, you may do so by PMing me.
