I see you are bypassing Israel, except for the Aqaba-Eilat-Taba cross which makes me think it's not a troll. Syria will be the hardest, but definitely not impossible. It's 2019 and Idlib is the last pocket, and whatever the Turks are doing in the north, but with money and pedal to the metal travel it's possible to quickly pass through. I say try it, but expect difficulties in Syria.

Seeing how different the climate in different regions of Turkey is also cool.

I'm Irish. I qualify for disability here with our social welfare system for a mental illness. Realistically, is it possible to live in another EU country and collect their social welfare? e.g. could I move to France, live in whatever public housing they have, and collect disability? And if doctors there don't renew my disability, and no one is willing to employ me, I can just collect jobseeker's welfare?

I'm interested in this because:
1. I've always wanted to live in a different country
2. Ireland's social welfare is very minimal (5,000 euro a year), and other countries at least nominally have much better welfare.
Please don't bully if this is a stupid question. I realize it's pretty fantastical to expect this could work, just looking for some input.

>(5,000 euro a year)

Does that include money for rent? If not, the amount in Germany is pretty much the same.
>>
No. Technically there only is freedom of movement for workers and not people which means that EU citizens are only entitled to social benefits in other member states if they have paid into the system for a certain period of time. This means that member states can potentially deport EU citizens that can't support themselves but this is rarely enforced because people that can't support themselves move back to their home countries or find some source of income before they starve to death.
>>
Yeah, without a job you're only allowed to stay in another Schengen country for three months (coincidentally the same as most tourist visas). After that, most will ask that you register long-term if you want to stay, and you'll need a job to be allowed to.
I reckon they're not going to kick you out, but you won't get any benefits either. Remember all the British pensioners in Spain: they're on British pensions, Spain doesn't pay them anything.

I'm going to Hong Kong in a couple of weeks. If you're capable of even the slightest bit of critical thinking, you'll know that Hong Kong is probably going to be fine. However, that doesn't stop people I know from commenting how "violent" and "dangerous" it is.

>wild rice exists
Well sure, it's not like every plant that wasn't domesticated was wiped out. And the cultivated ones will have grown wild too of course.

We do know quite a lot about the originator though and it's clear that domestication changed the plant very considerably, the original only seeded once a year with a single seed per stalk and it probably still had the shatter gene to spread better (the grain/husk breaks up to better spread in the wind), it's the loss of this gene that is considered the defining domestication event.
Anything that doesn't shatter on ripening would be a descendent of the domesticated plant, even if it since escaped into the wild.

I'm almost 37 and just haven't quite met the right person. I've dated some nice girls, and some who started out nice but turned shitty, but none of them were quite what I wanted out of a mother for my children. I'm literally about to break up with a feminist that never wants kids and when we first started dating I thought that was great because I wasn't ready and I didn't have to worry about getting stuck with kids unexpectedly, but the more she laughed about how much she hated kids and would never have mine it woke something up inside me and I saw how unattractive it was. Now I do want kids but I'm more jaded than ever about women in general and with 2 decades of experience with dating all kinds of them. At this point with a nest egg and no responsibilities the sky is the limit. I can travel just about anywhere within reason. I'm not rich but can swing 1.5k a month so the world is my oyster at the point once I pack my shit up and go.

Just booked my first solo trip, but now a deep melancholy took over me because I know I won’t be truly happy anywhere in the world, and no trip will change the fact I am lonely, undesirable and poor, or that I have been left and humiliated by the only person I ever loved a few weeks ago, or that I hate my job, my apartment and will have to return to this place when the journey is over. No matter how much I try to convince myself, I’m not doing a solo trip because I love my own company (I despise myself), but because I don’t have one single person in my life. No beautiful mountain or lake can save me.

Yeah but it's still cheaper which is the point, if you wanted you could do a late night bus and just sleep on it getting to LA by 7am on thursday if you wanted.

>Yeah, I definitely agree with you. I fly San Antonio/Austin to El Paso pretty frequently for work, but like I said, I drive to IAH/DFW when I go international.
Again you have that option to drop a car off for free, for me I'd have to tack on something like 20+ bucks per day. A bus after work burns no vacation days for me, saves me money, and doesn't cut as close to transfers. There isn't a downside to me using a bus vs a plane because I have no problems sleeping on a bus.

>>Denver->Santa fe
Yeah there a lot of "gatcha's" if you are not in a main city, if you live near one then you can generally just suck up the cost and do whatever. However, smaller in-between spots or sometimes airports that are going to connect to X larger airport regardless, a bus can often be cheaper. Especially if traveling with bags and not a "member" like on frontier or spirit where bags can add on an extra 35-45 dollars a pop easily. That 140 dollar flight? Oh you have bags that are bigger than personal items? yeah you need to check those...Oh basic economy, yup that will cost you should have done economy. Now that 140 dollar round trip flight is over 200 since it's probably going to be 35 there and back for your bags. Being at near 225, that 50-75 dollar bus now looks a lot more reasonable if you are trying to maintain a budget.
