Im somewhere between LMAO and Ouch!!!
You dont just get into medical school without the proper educational accomplishments that in themselves take years. He doesnt appear to have that.
I personally know a 57 year old GP who started studying medicine at 43 and he didnt even finish highschool, very little is unrealistic if you have the
drive and motivation to do it.
What happens if he loses gets his bribe cash taken or has to bribe multiple times during his trip. Then he has nothing left to bribe with. Assuming
the bribe would have worked in the first place. Trust? with 10K? uh hu! What if someone in the post office ,or anywhere along the line,steals it? then
As stated in the OP Ill be carrying my visa debit card and even if I lose it its not difficult to get a replacement even in a 3rd world country (I
speak from experience). And yes I trust this girl with 10K, she comes from a wealthy family and I have known her 3 years. Not everyone is out to F***
I mentioned the pets thing because she hates cats
Yet he also states I dont wanna make myself a target for thieves. Besides ,as soon as he tries to communicate with anyone hell be known far and wide
to all the local including beggars and thieves, which includes authorities..Cover blown! Besides anyone can spot a foriegner especially in the
countries he plans on.
I dont wanna make mysedlf a target by carrying expensive cameras, watches, phones etc etc.
Im curious, have you ever done any proper travelling, not kontiki tour stuff but genuine of the beaten track travel dealing with locals in these
countries? You seem to have a very "White" view of the world in that anywhere that isnt western your most likely gonna end up in a ditch with your
throat slit. In my travels I havent found this to be the case
free room and board,well not exactly free. youll have to work induring pain,hunger and just general discomfort.Better bring that sleeping bag too.
Well see I guess, if it happens Ill have no one to blame but myself
people can get away from the consequences of being stupid,making any mistake,even being a criminal,murder etc as long as youre in a "western country
esp the uS. Try that in foriegn countries. Third world countries,wow!
OK your American, your post makes sense.
It sounds like you dont know much about the world, its A HELL OF ALOT EASIER to get away with crimes in a 3rd world country than the US or any other
western country. Even here in Malaysia which is highly developed police wages are barely above the poverty line, without bribes their families dont
eat and they cant afford mistresses. Once past borders I will be sure to not put myself in any dodgy situations.
This guy likes to talk just to impress everyone. Ultimately its his way of making himself feel better about his lack of significance in his life.
Not sure exactly what you mean by this, Im no millionaire or celebrity but nor do I want to be. I make good money, I have friends and family who care
about me and Im happy, genuinely happy with the cards Ive been dealt.
The problem is that he cant see how revealing to us he really is.he cant even see our eyes rolling. He cant even notice the contradictions in
statements he makes.
You must be psychic to know so much about me from a few anonymous psots on a web forum, I would say your projecting as opposed to accurately reading
me. I spose well see when I complete the journey, hopefully meeting a few fellow members along the way who can verify Im actually doing it and not
just "making up stories" to impress a bunch of people I dont know on an internet forum
In spite of they way i speak of you above,i do know that you cannot help your situation. Some are born with all the advantages and some arent. Its no
ones fault either way. the control in our genetic makeup is beyond our control . its just too bad there is so much expectations on being
I really dont think I would change my "situation" even if I could. Im no Brad pitt but I do OK, In my younger days I represented my state in various
sports, won maths and science competitions and posses a high IQ, I think my genetic makeup is just fine. Ive travelled the world with my work and set
up and sold a very successful business when I left OZ several years ago.
I dont worry about expectations, my family just wants me to be happy and I dont see sucess as something quantifiable. having money, a career or even a
healthy family doesnt necessarily make you a success.
Dont be stupid and if you must, just make the journey up if you must ....and dont have kids,please!
Despite the way you put things Ill believe your hearts in the right place, Thanks for taking the time to repond
