I've had a fairly good life thusfar, and I'm still having an excellent time. So I figure, enjoy the life I have now, save for the life I want later. I should be able to travel half the year at 36, be debt free by 39, and be able to never work again by the time.I'm 45-46. I'm enjoying my life in the mean time, doing international aid work and rotations for a month each year and spending my 4 weeks of yearly vacation traveling as I please.droid wrote:That's too much, I always remember we can have a sudden heart attack at 35-40, then all the effort for what?HouseMD wrote:I've actually got a pretty same community of friends already, and I'm working on the long process of saving 2 million dollars so I can be financially free.

If you can still make 100K "part time", that should do it, unless you really like expensive stuff.
I look forward to spending just 20K a year in Vietnam or wherever and have my computer/online projects exceed that (still by as much as possible of course). At this point I've simplified my life so much that seems a nice balance, I would think.

A fairly simple concept to grasp, and yet, there is pushback from the naysayers. So be it.
Which forum is better than this one? Of course this one isn't great, but the rest are worse.
I feel free to judge the entire english speaking world because if anyone had anything worthwhile to say, I would have found it by now. But no, the entire english speaking world is worthless. No one is suggesting doing anything worthwhile.
It is MUCH easier to make 2 million dollars than it is to find one person who does not deserve to be shot.
You are sounding quite comical. If ANYONE in the English speaking world had anything worthwhile to say, they would have of course included you in the loop?
Or at the very least, they would have posted it on a little amusing forum like this one? As a pastime, this forum is amusing, but its not a serious moral or intellectual pathway.
Great men even now, conspire against evil, lay traps for deluded evil tyrants, stand in the gap for a remnant of humanity and when evenings come, know that walk in the garden of the Creator. A word to the wise is unnecessary.
I can't think of a single one.
To be fair, a lot of people here aren't exactly suggesting anything worthwhile either. There are a few guys here who suggest for men to go abroad and find love, raise a stable family, build up a legacy and leave something positive behind in the world. But I see a lot of men with a different, very flawed mentality. They don't care about love, they care about sex and "catching up" only, trying to live the life that eluded them in their teens and twenties. They are pleasure seekers who lose their money and time on whores and die leaving nothing but regrets behind.
The basic philosophy of HappierAbroad is admirable, but I would say only a small percentage of the members actually make a net positive contribution to the world and are a part of raising a healthy next generation. The rest is just pissing away their potential, refusing to contribute and expecting others to solve things, or is just too much of a cynic or defeatist to even try. When people take a worthwhile idea and don't do anything worthwhile with it, what is the point?
This poster is one of the negative ones, and even he sees the holes in this "say something worthwhile" logic. I mean, those who criticise the site for "not saying anything worthwhile" and yet choose to spend their time here might want to look inwards to answer some of their own questions. I'm curious as to why some users need a "sane society" to be happy. Putting stock in others -- especially when you think the world is doomed to begin with -- is not a healthy strategy or philosophy. But to each their own. Regardless, I find the quoted user agreeable in this instance. Very few men (VERY few men) here are actually preaching the site's mantra. More trolling, racism, religious clashing, general lunacy and defeatism take place hourly than any productive discussion on leaving the west. Perhaps the general opinion of western society here has "bleed into" the site's meta. Since "Happier Abroad" has mostly western members the rhetoric becomes: Life happier abroad > life outside of the west> life in the west is undesirable > the west is greatly flawed > the west is deplorable > this is why the west is deplorable > people agree > negative thought loop. From there, people connect with others due to their own realities/reasons why the west is "amoral" or toxic or what-have-you.
Folks, the earth is flat, so don't travel too far because you may fall off the edge. And above all, please don't reproduce because humanity deserves extinction.

Yes. And I am a happier man for it.
Check this out. The leading flat earth researcher, Eric Dubay, an expat in Thailand who is a freethinker and conspiracy buff too, has come out with a new groundbreaking PDF and 2 hour video called "200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball". It contains 200 objective proofs and hard facts that demonstrate that Earth cannot be a spinning sphere in outer space! Some of the proofs are easily testable and can be done yourself. Check it out. It's very logical and makes sense.

That is literally some of the dumbest crap I've ever read. I don't have enough time to refute each item, because I'm learning real science and it's pretty damn time consuming. Slowing down light was my favorite one, omg, that's just plain dumb. How does he not even know what happens to light when it changes medium? That's like, high school science level stuff. It slows, but not measurably by any methods at the time. What it does do that is significant is CHANGE ITS ANGLE.
Why would you even bother reading these links? And why would you expect people like this to know about refraction?
Anyway, I read a book about Islam recently which proves that there is no lower limit to human stupidity.
For Muslims, science itself is a heresy because science teaches that natural forces cause things to happen while modern Islam teaches that Allah is the only force in the world.
The depth of human stupidity never ceases to amaze me.
How could one fall off the edge? No one can approach the edges. There is no such danger. You'll die of frostbite, lack of food, and rough seas just attempting to approach the edge. Or from lack of fuel and breathable air.
If you believe the human race deserves extinction, that just shows the lack of love in your heart. You hate people who disagree with your beliefs. That is not right. They are still people. Unless you say they are less human because they believe something which you think is stupid. But then that shows us again, the lack of love for others in your heart.
Haha, this is comedy gold! Reminds me of those folks who calculate the earth to be 6000 years old based on the Bible. They apparently view the Flinstones cartoon as an excellent historical documentary and insist humans and dinosaurs roamed the earth at the exact same time despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.
Both Islam and Christianity had their golden age, in which science and culture flourished. Those days are long gone, and barbary remains. All we can do is laugh and move on, because a brick wall cannot be argued with.
