    Rocket Packs seem likely to earn the nickname "Leg BBQ" as well.


    Therefore, the only true answer is Robot Unicorns, of course.

    Airships!

    Well, doesn't decrease transit time, but so much more majestic than trains (or planes).

    Ah, but we'll all be upgraded to have synthetic brains so all memories and thought processes would stay the same.

    Think of it less like suicide and more like a 100% full body detox. All cells renewed.

    I'm sorry that I'm finding it hard to stay positive in a country that has been beaten to the ground by stupid politicians and greedy bankers, and that has then chosen to punish the public sector (though funnily enough, not the politicians or the bankers) for that - clearly I'm insane! As for leaving the country, I'd love to! Unfortunately I don't get paid enough to raise the funds to do so; it's a vicious cycle!
    I've said many times on here that I intend getting the hell out of Dodge and taking my pension with me as soon as it's financially viable, and these are some of the very reasons why. Throw in unpredictable weather, lack of sunshine hours, salary cuts, wage freezes, pension freezes, energy price increases and so on, and I can't really see many reasons for staying.

    But no one's ever neg-repped me for saying so. <cue unseemly rush by the rest of Edugeek to neg-rep Earthling>

    If whoever neg-repped @LosOjos wants to do the same to me, feel free, I don't care. It's not going to change my attitude, my experience, my professionalism or, more importantly, the state of this country.

    But hey, it might make you feel better.

    It's 92 weeks and 6 days, by the way, before it becomes financially viable. Then it's Get My Coat and Sunglasses all the way to the South Pacific.

  6. Thanks to Earthling from:

    Altered Carbon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Well, don't be too jealous.........I might end up in a back-street in Quezon City with a knife between my shoulder-blades. Or floating off on the crest of a tsunami somewhere.

    Rather that than being run over by a No. 43 bus or freezing to death in my home because it's a choice between heating and eating.

    Edit: Forgot to say 'Thanks' for the good wishes.

    Sounds to me like bad management. Are ALL the schools in the same state?
