Hmm - I took the time to read through Dark Knight's original thread and a couple of things jumped out at me.
He was going to Tibet - correct? He chose one of the most politically sensitive, heavily policed areas under China's control and he thought he would
escape detection there? Now, unless Dark Knight is of Tibetan ancestry, I think it extremely unlikely that he would gain any sort of access to the
country, let alone a remote hideout with the goods and chattels he allegedly purchased to fund his retirement.
On page 5, he makes a post that indicates that there are quite a few people about, in that he says "There is food, but it walks on two legs and
speaks". Double hmmm. The man is so incredibly prepared for his foray into mountain survival, that he plans on cannibalism to survive? With no
retaliation or resistance from the locals? Quite the survivalist, our Dark Knight.
He also says the son of the man whose deathbed disclosure prompted his decision, is already out in mountains, having walked away from his $200K
medical practice. Why did Dark Knight not elect to join his friend? He talks only about his wife and a few other couples setting up shop in Tibet.
There is no mention of his already ensconced friend, or any planned meeting between them. You would assume that given they shared such vital
information as was provided by the old man, they would also combine resources in their mountain retreats?
Ah but our resourceful Dark Knight has it all planned. He will survive with just his few trusty friends and his human food supply in a country where
even bona fide tourists are monitored every minute of their stay. He will somehow evade the passport controls, the hotel controls, the transport
controls and the physical observation that China extends to every local in Tibet, let alone the foreign devils who venture in, and hide in a cave for
several years without detection. While munching on human steak tartare.
Yep - I believe him!
