Comments on Thursday 18 July 2002:
Oh no! Current Nationwide Threat Level: ELEVATED. Run for the hills! Or, ideally, run for another country which doesn't think "nothing has happened for the last six months" is an elevated level of threat. Local people, prepare to join us in an exodus in about 12 months. [01:12]

Kevan
Mm, only raise the risk-of-threat level after something has actually happened. Terrorists could play it like a "Test Your Strength" machine. (http://www.whitehouse.gov/president/homeland)

Come to Canadaaaaa....
Canada is your friend....
And we don't have a Dubya in charge.

Canada is a close choice, but it's probably going to end up playing the part of France in 'World War 3: Attack Of The Drones', and I'd rather not have to be La Resistance. I prefer the Brave Sir Robin method of battling.

Good Canadians are welcome to join us in the exodus, though.

Tom
If the exodus bravely scarpers south, be sure to have your papers in order. Otherwise we'll lock you up for processing. We're getting quite good at it. Personally, I'm looking into yellow submarines.

Actually, if you can prove that you're British, and that an ancestor of yours was once transported to Australia as a convict *and didn't run away*, you're probably already an Australian citizen. This is nearly true. Depends on how well you can play cricket.

Would love to see RavenBlack leading an exodus though, parting the waves with his mighty staff etc.

Canada's looking really good -- I'm considering looking for work and hoping they'll let me have it. (Okay, slightly more than considering. More like "staring longingly at Bioware's hiring information.")

I'm vaguely concerned about how close canada is to us, not geographically, but buddy-buddy politics and all. Then again, Blair's being more obnoxious than I think Canada as a whole is capable of.

Australia's a bit far and I don't have such reasons as you to go there.

*sigh*

Digi
The leaders of Atlantis had the right idea.

As for me, I'm sorted. I was born in Belgium, my Mum has Russian ancestry, and is Canadian. Countries I can live in:

Anywhere in Europe.
Canada.
Australia.
Anywhere in the Comon wealth.
Anywhere that needs another programmer.

Basically everywhere except where I don't want to live.

Ha! So there.

Anyone want to marry me? If we convert to mornons I can marry five of you at a time. Gay Mornons and I can get men as well.

QuickSlash
Try New Zealand. No one will know you exist, and you're right next to Australia.

RavenBlack
Mm, I have a smaller sample for judging whether I'd like New Zealand people, but it's a good ratio. Two of two. Australians score nine of ten. Canadians also score nine of ten. Americans... ha.

Fox West
Oh, wait I know! Let's all move to Sealand!

RavenBlack
I don't think it's big enough for all the people who want to get out of America at the moment. Perhaps if we all put our resources together we could form our own Sealand. But that's a lot of effort. And getting internet access to it would be a pain, too.

Digi
Get all the useless govermental forms you had to fill in, drop them about 200 miles off the coast of africa and live on the new island.
