When people hear that I can program apps I often get hassled by someone who of course has the next multi million dollar idea.
Whenever someone finds out that I'm a writer, they ask why I haven't written a screenplay and make an easy $50,000 per screenplay. First, it's not that easy to write a screenplay. Second, I don't have connections with Hollywood because I don't live there. Third, I'm not interested in competing with every failed actor or actress who write screenplays when they're not working at the local dinner. No one is happy with that answer.

I had a roommate who studied automotive design on the West Coast because he loved cars. Four years of college and $25,000 in student debt later, his regular job was logistics in a warehouse. I'm surprised no one told him that an automotive designer was overqualified to work in a warehouse.
You need to read "Flash Boys" by Michael Lewis to get the full story. The programmer made routine backups of the modifications he made to open source files for release back into the community.

World War II called and wants its lunatic Euro-dream back.
Sorry, the helping out relatives story is not in the interest of Greece.
Unless, of course, your wife loves the money you send back and doesn't want you to come home.
I had roommate's brother who came from the Philippines to do electronic assembly work in Silicon Valley. He hated the job but his wife didn't want him to come home. After a few years, he quit, returned home and got divorced. His wife spent every dime he ever made in the U.S.
