I googled something, and the second search result was from here. I thought, "hey why not come back and see how the old forum was doing?" I enjoy reading the threads, I probably won't contribute so much though. I took the MBTI for fun with my psychologist last year and the result was INFP for me. That's when I stopped comming here. But I really missed everybody :).
OK, so assuming that you didn't change the default time zone, that would put you in England... if you were just lazy like a bunch of other people who I've met here, you could be anywhere across he Northern States (best guess northeastern... New York, maybe Michigan), or any country across the northern edge of Asia or through Central Europe... I'm going to randomly guess Germany or New York. Please don't ask why... I'm really just depending on the fact that Germany is the largest European country and so geographically speaking the most likely for you to be in, and the fact that NY is the most populous state that's in a suitable location for cold winters...
You go out in winter and it's cold. Assuming you reckon seasons the same as I do, that puts you in the Northern Hemisphere, since all the Aussies here are a bit nuts and have really warm winters and cold summers... Besides that, Southern Hemisphere doesn't generally get all that bad even in their winter months, so I usually go with "If you have cold weather, you're well north of the Tropic of Cancer."
But anyway, the medivac price has dropped AGAIN to $86 000, which perhaps is worth the comfort of being at home, especially with all the friends dying to help out with various things, including money. (I think it's harder to be sympathetic when you can't actually see the victim face-to-face, so being in Singapore should bring us more aid.)
Sorry if this was too rambly/involved, it's just been on my mind a lot.
If it were that clear-cut, everything would be easier. The thing is Shanghai's medical quality is probably not all that much worse than Singapore's, at least in the top hospitals. It's just that Singapore (being an Asian country that's 'done good' for itself) is even more mistrustful of China than perhaps a Western country would be. So it's hard to make a decision with Singaporean influence... my father's brother, who's a pilot with Qantas, was basically pooh-poohing our concerns about Shanghai and saying every pilot who's injured in China goes to [one particular hospital in Shanghai] which is world-standard, reliable, everything you could want etc, and that our fears about standards are baseless.
Thanks. :) I just hope we're not laden with debt that we have no way of comfortably paying off. It's not like their health or anyone else's is going to get better as the years progress; we'd be kidding ourselves if we think this is the worst of it and it's all la-di-da rainbows and poppies from here on. We're going to need money for a lot more than this accident; there are kids, school fees, mortgages, other medical emergencies, a disabled relative that needs a lot of care, etc. If we blow it all on this just to provide emotional/mental comfort, then our future selves won't be very pleased I think.
I understand the reasoning, I just don't get how Glove fits into it, unless that's a 'handle' you use around family and friends as well. Or perhaps they lurked around the time you were using that name?
It's almost like a toad's tongue, lashing out on reflex, without thought, and just as quickly and suddenly retreating back into the mouth. That's how I experience things anyway, or how I used to experience certain emotions and compulsions.
CELEBRITIES ARE GODS OK GODS
But yes, understanding people. Why though? What do you want to understand?
