    My wife does not want to move away from her family. Also, my engineering degree from a banana republic would likely be useless in the US. Someone I know ended up working there as a low-level draftsman after because of that. Also, I built a house to stop my wife from nagging me to death, thus the crushing debt. Selling it or renting it would likely yield barely enough to pay for a one-room apartment in the US.

    I should have moved away from this place (I live in one of the most dangerous and corrupt places in LatinAmerica) when I was single and could likely still do the whole accreditation thing.
    6 to 8 month trade school here and you could start a whole new life,
    Working shit jobs for that 6 to 8 months to survive,
    And then you would have much more money, opportunity, and quality of life than where you are at.
    And then could send for your family.
    It is usually not too late.

      I am fifty years old and have very bad spine damage, bad knees and a collapsed ankle (martial arts, again). I do not know if I could do even the shit jobs.
      I do think about it all the time, though.
      There is no wellfare here or any such kind of state help, so a month without a paycheck means your family starves.
      I am currently thinking of trying to make more of the drawing porn thing.

        I was in Turtles, Turtles II, Mario Brothers, Little Monsters, and tons of other films ... never featured tho ... I missed Silence of the Lambs by two fucking days.
        One of my early Kung Fu instructors was Foot Soldier #1 and an integral part of the first Turtles movie.
        I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

        "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

          Damn. And I thought it was cool that one of the guys that I trained under for a long time was a stunt guy in the first Mortal Kombat and did a lot of stunt work for Don Wilson's movies.

            ksen - for what it’s worth, you enjoyed those hours you put into martial arts and theatre. Don’t let anyone walk all over that. Griping spouses are the worst.

                  I understand it is never too late to start.
