    I can't speak to Costa Rica, but Belize is relatively safe. People in Belize are very independent, so you don't have the dangerous levels of class envy that pervades many countries- especially those to the hard left. Also it's not the culture of those who vacation or retire there to flaunt wealth- most are looking for a laid back experience and anyone flaunting wealth would just stick out as a complete tool.

    As an MD who has not yet reached attending status, not getting a residency will be a career ender. If she manages to pull off getting a job someone will eventually rat out her history and she will be decruited with extreme prejudice. Her first move at this time needs to be a legal name change - that will at least prevent random patients from learning about her via google.

    I had a coworker (now deceased) who often spoke of wanting to move to Belize.
    He spent a lot of time researching it online, looked at a ton of real estate listings, and about 10 years ago he actually went through with it. Sold his house in Waltham, packed up and moved down there. He said the cost of living is dirt cheap so the money he got for his house went a long way. He bought a home, found a new GF, got married, and had a child with her. (he was 65 at the time and she was MUCH younger) I last saw him about four years ago when he came back for a visit. He told me how nice it was down there, how nice the people were and nobody hassled him. He did say it took some adjustments to get used to not always having easy access to lot of stuff we take for granted in the US. Stuff like familiar brand-name consumer products we can find locally anywhere, he said there's a lot of counterfeit goods, so you need to know what you're buying. Also electric outages are common because their grid isn't built to the standards we're used to up here. He also told me that there's a lot of government corruption and people are easily bribed, but he used this to his advantage. He was making trips back to the states and buying cheap used goods, which he'd load into a 20' steel container and ship back home to sell. Mostly motorized stuff he was familiar with and could refurbish himself, such as lawn mowers, small motorcycles, scooters, generators, pumps, chainsaws etc. He told me he was required to pay an import tax on this stuff, which could be quite hefty, but if you knew the right palm to grease, you could save big bucks.
    He was living the dream and really loved it down there, but unfortunately it didn't last long because he passed away from a heart attack a few years ago. [angry]

    You can move anywhere and still collect SS, you just have to file the Fed taxes on that income.

    I don't know if the SS will direct deposit to a foreign bank, but you could have it deposited to a US checking account and then write a check for deposit to the out of country bank.

    back to racist items.
    Watching the weather this morning.
    WHY is EVERYONE on TV so fearful of BLACK ICE?

    White or clear ice does not seem to get their panties in a bunch, but as soon as it is BLACK it is "super dangerous"

    Nope, f*** this. Where's that big ass earthquake we need to get rid of California? Can we extend that the whole way up to Canada?

    If Trump had this is his house he'd be called a racist:

    I read that the watermelon guy was replaced by that vase after the fact. The article even had a scan of the receipt for the vase, dated a few days after the original pic went viral.

    I read it on the internet (right after I posted it here) so it MUST be true.

    Either way, she's a loathsome individual.

    Black Enterprise. Is that some sort of racist rental car company or something???

    It's just a fact, black ice will get your hurt 16 times more often than white ice.

    Overheard a fight at a triage desk at the hospital last week:

    How should we ask for gender? And isnt not having (insert gender here) discrimination?

    Gender is super important in medical treatment- lab values change based on your born with gender, not to mention basic stuff like pregnancy tests.

    There's a future fight here, it's going to be fought by some transgender dude who insists he is female and is suing for medical malpractice as he was either medically treated as a Male, or on the flip was ineffectively treated as a female when his/her medical records were unavailable.

    Anyone else notice that every hand is white, or am I just slow on the up-take?
