I'm hanging in there. College has become like doing time, I would imagine. It does not mean you are smart, it just means you have endurance. Another two semesters after this summer seems like a long time to do.

Hi survival;

You are are absolutely right. All of life is like that. As a matter of fact life itself is an endurance test. Those who work hard will always beat those who do not, regardless of talent or even genius.

Two semesters is not a long time.

I wish that were true.

I have the end of this semester and then two more. I am tired of going to school. '
They give homework under the guise of "well so and so is due the day you come back from break."
I spent the entire day and night writing one twenty page short story and it was not short. I still have to edit it.
Gute Nacht in German. Actually it is morning since 3 am. so that would be
Guten Morgen.

Hi;

No, I was referring to the fact that I am always learning.

Do you not know what state I live in?

Hi survival and anonimnystefy;

Yes, it is Las Vegas. Hopefully though as my work is finished here I will be moving on to Florida.

A very interesting theory. Actually the truth may be just the opposite.

### Re: Hello to all

I do know that there are two states I would never set foot in. Florida and California. Florida is sinking and Calif. has unpredictible faults. I'll stay in the South where it's cheaper to live. If you move to Florida, that is your perogative, but it's more expensive.

### Re: Hello to all

Hi survival;

Actually, it is cheaper than both Nevada and New Jersey. I agree about California but not about Florida. Anyway, I will near the northern part of the state.

The slow gradual erosion of the coastline is not my immediate worry. A USN map that is being circulated shows an immediate threat to many areas considered safe by phony geological reports.

It seems that what areas of the US that will be safe is a personal decision based on information I hesitate to go into here.

Why not?

As for the reliability of geological reports, that's not true. I have taken enough Geology courses (3) to know that they stay on top of everything. They are always in the exploration/"watching" stages.
Forget Florida, find a cheap state to live and with all the benefits such as a Southern state---VA, Ala, TN I can highly recommend.
NC where I am? I will b grateful to get out of here. Never visit if i make it out alive.
I am checking out a transfer type program that allows me to finish up my last year in just about any state I choose. Of course I am looking to TN which is where my roots are. I don't like the college I am in now.

### Re: Hello to all

Hi suvival;

I agree about those three states, I like the south. My daddy is from Alabama but I do not have those options available. My sister is currently now in Florida and loves it, I would be joining her.

So currently my options include Nev, NJ or Fl. Funny about NC my cousin is there and he loves it. Has 10 acres of land and I sure wish I was friendlier with him.

Why not?

Living out here in Nevada has taught me to mistrust any reports geological or otherwise that universities, corporations, the scientific community or the gov were behind. This here is alien country and I do not ever discuss the whys of certain topics on any forum.

Oh ok, whatever works for you. That's a big move though. I will never set foot in Florida. Never been to Disney even and don't intend on it.
Hey, Atlanta you would love. It's the most beautiful state I have ever been through. I would not mind living in that state at all, but I don't know anyone there.

Well, when I go home, I go out of the way just for the scenery. I bet they have high taxes, because their roads are perfection and always look freshly paved. Beautiful steel skyscrapers that look like giant silver robots. Amazing.

Well, they just grow taller. They look like silver/chrome giant robots. (Atlanta) I have never been to other big places with skyscrapers except Memphis and it's a dirty place.
