James Gunn fired from Guardians 3@JaimieT I didn't mention anyone specifically. IMO some folks in that thread jumped the gun and didn't wait to respond for even 1 day before they buried the guy. Some or all of what she has claimed could still be true, but the evidence since her declaration would seem to suggest otherwise...I could be wrong, don't know yet and I am sure more is yet to come with Hardwick.
The intent of my post was also to comment on how rapidly our culture, and folks on Bald Move, will move to crucify a person. People can read the posts in that thread and make up their own minds. What I don't appreciate is being called a dick, a troll or threatened with being kicked off. I catch insults from folks on here all the time and I responded with cursing in the past, and it got me booted. I don't think what I said was grounds for a personal attack, especially from a mod who then threatens to boot me.

I think this is a well balanced statement in an Open Letter from the from the cast that Chris Pratt posted today, and I agree with much of it. I hope people don't think they are "alt-right" for using the term "mob mentality" here.
Because they don't wait 10 days to respond, or even 1 day.
Moving AbroadHatorian said:Hatorian said:emnofseattle said:I moved to Australia when I was 23 for grad school and never once regretted it. I planned to go for 1.5 years for 1 degree, and ended up staying for a 2nd degree and working after that. In all I was there for 6 years before I moved back to the US. Even if you only live overseas for a few years I would say go now...run, do not walk! It was the biggest, most enjoyable experience of my life (next to getting married last year and having a baby coming in December this year).
Don't know about moving in your 30's (I went when i was younger and had school and then a work visa) but my guess is you have probably worked long enough that you have enough points to apply for work visas that will keep you in whatever country you want to go to. I personally would suggest Australia or New Zealand as they are great countries with awesome people, and far far away from here haha. Culture shock isn't as bad in these two countries but much slower pace than the US which takes some getting used to, and it can sometimes feel weird having your seasons be in reverse but that all passes quickly.
I'm with @Hatorian in that it can be hard being away from your family (which is why I moved back eventually), but it's a lot easier now than it was when I went over in 2004. Facebook, skype, Facetime, snapchat, etc etc make it loads easier. Also, making friends is big! I had an ultimate frisbee community to jump into which helped so if you play sports or have a hobby you love I would look for those wherever you move to meet like minded people.
Wherever you do go....can ya save a couch for all the Bald Movers who want to come visit?
I would kind of like to take a year or two living in another country, but I always hang on "how will I pay for it" Since I'm not wealthy and don't like debt.
if you smoke forget about it. $30 a pack now.
AU has a immigration website that shows what types of jobs they are looking for and how to best find them. Can’t rememver the name but if you Google AU work immigration I think it will come up.
