Ever made it to Belize? Maybe college down there? (1 Viewer)

Right, so my job lets me work online. It's very expensive to live in the US, and I think there is increasing possibility (perhaps not likely but trending towards plausible) that the US is will undergo severe decline if not collapse relatively soon.

Belize. It's not too expensive to live, and they have a college down there where I can study mathematics relatively cheaply compared to the US.

Also if it hits the fan I'd like to be in a nicer climate, and not at ground zero for the collapse.

Any of you been down there, or studied there?

I find knowledge to be it's own reward, and mathematics will serve the survivors well.

Much of the great knowledge of the past occurred in times of general decline.

Even if it's just a way to occupy myself and develop my mind, that has value, and if the shit winds not happening (or to a lesser scale), improved knowledge of mathematics will still serve me well.

Why learn? Why not?

I've had new cars. I found the associated happiness brief.

Learning has given me things that owning a new consumer item can't.

I think location will play some part. Right now I'm in the middle of an area with many many evangelical conservative Christian Trump supporters punctuated with little pockets of meth users, who also support Trump. If the infrastructure collapses, their unity (as hateful and self-contradictory as it is) will give them an early advantage in the carnage demolition derby of civilization that will follow. I don't want to be in their territory once it's openly theirs.

I've never lived anywhere tropical, I think I'd like to try it. The possibocalypse isn't solely determinative, but it lends weight to the "fuck it, go live in Belize" urge.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$105.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
