I've heard that Americans are considered rockstars in poor countries and I really want to take this to the next level.
I just got fired from my job so I plan on selling my car for about 5k and heading flying off to a poor country. I have decent enough vocals and I figure I can hire a band to back me up. I plan on being shamelessly fake about my image and trying to play off the idea that Americans are rebellious badasses that play by their own rules.
I've come here to see if any of the travel gurus can offer me advice on which country to select. I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>896495 Yeah I have actually, you could even say I'm using the internet right now to research an idea that I have. Isn't that wild? That I am using the internet to gather information and it's so subtle that you don't even realize it?
So... my US company got bought by a Japanese Company a year ago. And now they plan to copy part of the engineering department there and they are asking for people to go there and start things. They already sent people from there here to get trained but they need more people with experience and since I'm the only one from the engineering department that actually knows Japanese (well, got a JLPT Level 4 approved and thinking on taking the level 3) they asked me if i wanted to move there for good. In the beginning i was like "where do i sign?" but then it hit... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
> How is the office work environment in Japan? You WILL work overtime, unpaid, every-fucking-day. That means you have to show up at least 20 minutes early, stay for your normal 8-9 hours, then stay until around 9 at night. Yes, that mean you'll get home around 10. Yes, that means you'll have almost no time for the vidya or 4chan.

Do any of you like to take a novel with you on your travels? Say, when you're waiting at a train station or at the beach, just having a nice read always brings joy to me on my trips-- even if it's just to kill some time :)
Yeah and sometimes pick them specially for the places I am going to be travelling, like Rayuela when I went to Paris or Dubliners when I went to Ireland. I find that I always have time for reading when I'm travelling because all of the trains/buses/flights or the hours spent just chilling
>>877546 spoken like a true beta. But its true. If you're a dork you won't get laid anywhere on planet earth and if you talk to the girl about cultural differences and the way things are back home, and try to do the english teacher thing with a Jap girl, they will identify you as beta and friendzone you.
If you demand that she has beers with you and fucks you, she wont say no. in their culture they arent allowed to disagree with men and if you are dressed okay and dominant they will think you are powerful and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>875958 No, they're generally pleasant unless provoked. DO NOT under any circumstances joke with them. Don't ask questions, don't slow them down in any way and just follow all the orders they give you. They have to deal with thousands of people every day, they're really bitter that their job sucks so they abuse their powers to harass you if you piss them off.
If they're being friendly with you, be friendly back. If they are being serious, don't try to lighten the mood. Answer only the questions... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Pretty much. It's not as bad as people make it out to be (At least not in any of the airports I've been in). Just do like the first poster said and you should be fine. Oh, and know exactly what you can/can't take onto planes. It saves LOADS of time.
