You Sir, need to get your isms right. putting sosialism/communism as the same thing is stupid and ignorant. What you are getting in USA is a Capitalistic policestate. I live in a country that is sosialistic(for the people), we have capitalism and we tax big-oil 70%. Thats how we can afford to make the population among the happiest in the world. Norway btw.

Yea, i reply to my own post, but this tip is golden :!
You can stay with people at their homes, usually they have a room or even a guesthouse(happened once but they also had servants). Since they already are on couchsurfing You can assume they have internet and power. You will probably be able to find a lot of prospects for your trip where the hosts have some of your interest

oh... And according to one of the girls i met you do not always have to sleep with your host(s)

Check price and length of Visa. It varies from country to country. Europe is mainly EU(Schengen) and three months is the standard tourist visa. Then you have to leave for three months before coming back. For American citizens EU is free. There is also other countries around EU that is cheap.
As long as you do not get paid from the EU you do not need a work Visa.
I travel SE Asia a lot and live in EU. Theoretically it is possible to do what you want. WIFI and electricity is available most places. If you find a quiet corner in a cafe they will love you for spending money all day even if it is just coffee.

Technically it looks like he want's to punish everyone who use a knife equally harsh, for cutting an ex's tires or killing him with it. Then he will go after the vandalism or murder separately.
Hacking is not worse than owning a knife but both can be used to break laws. To accept laws that would make either a crime, is just nonsense.
