I'm moving this summer, tell me where to
May 2nd 2012, 03:48 CEST by Milan Brezovsk√Ĺ

I know this is a weak attempt to add a new topic to the front page, but why not.

I'm leaving my job at the end of May. Then I want to start working on my own projects. My flatmate is moving out by the end of June, so my boring options are
1. find a new flatmate
2. move to a different apartment within Prague

Or, you know, I could just try something new.

Letís say I want to spend up to 800 Ä per month for everything, incl. the rent. So letís say 400 Ä rent, 200 Ä food, 200 Ä internet, phone, mass transit and a minimum of fun.

My requirements are:
- I need to be able to be there without a visa, or with an absolute minimum of paperwork. I donít mind being there 3 months and then moving elsewhere.
- I cannot stand more that 22 degrees Celsius to function.
- I prefer politically stable governments, which is to say, nowhere on Earth.

My candidates are:
- Iceland, I could get a tiny room for like 320 Ä. I love the nature. I donít mind the weather. I could hang out with Gaggle.
- Scandinavia. I seem to get along well with people from there.
- Poland. I havenít done much research, but again, friendly people + the language (basics) should be relatively easy to learn.
- New Zealand - although I donít want to fly there + care about a visa. I could stay 3 months on a visitor visa.
- Balkan - Serbia, Croatia, Romania? Havenít done any research yet.

In general, I would prefer English-speaking countries. UK seems too expensive and I donít trust the political scene there; I donít care about USA except for my friends there; Canada also seems to grow more immigrant-unfriendly, and most of other EU states are too expensive or unable to accommodate lazy ass like me who doesnít speak anything useful but English.

I might also just couchsurf around Europe for a few months to see the world and then settle down wherever I like, after experiencing the culture for myself (or just return to Prague).

There's also "The Day the Universe Changed", an ancillary series by Burke. However, if you watch S1E1 of "Connections", you do get a nice creepy 911 thing going on.

I'm going to play this game a bit differently. I'm moving and I'll tell you where.

I'm moving from Whidbey Island to Port Angeles. We are moving out into the boonies a bit, but not too much. Really nice place, private and the family loves it.

I'm with them on how awesome it is, but I'm a bit worried too. Because it's the boonies, I'd be a 2.5 hours commute to the nearest software development place if the virtual job were to go belly up. That's a good thing really, in that I don't want to live near a city anymore, but... it's all my safety net. I have no doubt I can get a job in any city in this country. Do I have doubts about getting another job easily while living out in the woods.

So I'm little nervous about the idea. That said, I think I will do it anyway. Can't always leap with a safety net involved. And the house and the town and the people and the internet and the schools all seem MUCH better than where I am now. I could see myself living there for years and years to come (which is the point).

Just, you know, it's hard to see the future.

Good luck and I'm happy if you're happy but... Port Angeles is kind of a hole.  Not so much "ooh cool, we're out in nature and away from the bustle of city life" and more backwater redneck mill town.

Really? I went through there and really liked it. I don't mind some redneck, and it had a good portion of people trying to eat well (first thing we found was a csa) and more local food than anything we've had in Oak Harbor. And the google told me it has a pretty sweet farmer's market year round.

We still haven't signed papers, but it's looking hopeful and wonder of wonders, the internet will be better 10m outside of Port Angeles on the side of a mountain more than it is here on Whidbey. Silly shit.

I'll make a mental note and follow through in a couple of years. I'm enjoying Community very much, maybe next I'll start with Dexter or Sherlock or something.

Besides Avengers, the movie highlight of recent months was a documentary called Urbanized.

It's hard to top the superfriends season with Julia Stiles, but it's still a fun show.  Although I'll admit, the twist at the end is retarded every time I see it.  And that includes Fight Club.

This is the season with the religious motif? Yeah it was odd, uninteresting characters and a fairly lame twist. Rather too Shyamalan-esque.

Prometheus isn't bad but I bet expectations are important. I went into it not having seen trailers or knowing anything about it and came out thinking it's, we'll, not bad. But not good either. It's overall a pretty dumb movie, but I liked certain small parts enough that it made me think about the movie after leaving the cinema which I'm counting as a positive.

And I didn't even mind the 3D.

That's not a very good review of Prometheus...but then again it's gaggle, so let me check some other sources too...RT says 79% right now. Sounds like maybe gaggle is spot on this time?

Anyone else see it?


I just recently saw Snow White & The Huntsman, which was actually a good movie right until the last third where it got confused and the editing/flow went to shit. I do not recommend.

My biggest problem with it was that you could easily make the movie less stupid by removing scenes and not replacing them with anything.  Although, after reading that thing you linked on Facebook, I think the stupid may go a lot deeper than I initially realized.

This. The premium for seeing it in Imax 3D was actually worth it. Scott and his cinematographer make other people working in 3D look like noobs.

Where's the 10 or more pages of outrage about the wanton murder is Call Of Modern Quake Warfare?

I mean, seriously, 10 (or more) pages of stupid outrage over 20 seconds of video in a Tomb Raider Game?

Come on.

This is the generation of kids who got a ribbon for coming in last place on the midget soccer team. It's fucking ridiculous.

And who gives a flying fuck how gay you are, but certainly creole Ned and the rest of the gaybos and other sexual deviants over there and at QT3 want you to know every chance they can squeeze it in.

Gunpoint aint flying his damn gay flag every time he posts here, but them douchebags over there it's like every other post.

Dude, I've been posting and reading QT3 for years and Broken Forum since the great exodus at the start of this year and I only know Creole Ned is gay because he mentioned it here. Years ago. And I'm pretty sure that that was just to explain his disco-afro-wearing dog avatar.

But that is no matter, I knew he was just as much a hypocrite as Chick was, I made him prove it. My job is done there.

I really don't see where you get that idea. Of course Creole Ned and Scrax and who else are going to directly or indirectly identify themselves as gay when they post in the dating threads. If you take offense to someone talking about their same-sex SO in the context of a relevant conversation, fuck you.

What's someone supposed to do, lie about it and make up a name from the opposite sex for their partner just so you don't have to know someone's gay?

She's probably had sex with like 4 different guys by now and has no idea who he is anymore, his face lost in a memory sea of dicks.
