This is just an observation, wod, but when I pull up a list of the threads you've started, and read the titles of those threads, I get the distinct impression that you are:

- probably younger than your stated 31;

- thinking of leaving the US, probably aboard your own sailboat (though you have little to no experience sailing) and living on a deserted Pacific island;

- more than a little bit concerned by the possibility of a) being denied a passport, b) being boarded by the USCG, and c) being drowned by a rogue wave or getting caught out in a hurricane.

Please correct me if I'm misinterpreting something.
