Hah, my favorite movie as well! In fact, it's the only DVD I own.

Look, you can get blown up in downtown Bali as well as in downtown Manhattan. That doesn't prevent me from going into NYC to visit relatives and friends. When it's your time to go, just hope that your good deeds have granted you a quick and painless way to go.

Oh, of course, that I won't stop me from retiring in Phuket or San Jose.

Ian,

Well, each to his own, I guess. *With repsect to your belief that Phuket is far to "touristy," I have to disagree. *Perhaps Patong Beach is that way, but there's more to Phuket than Patong. *It's a fairly large island.

Phuket is one of the richest place in Thailand. However, it's still dirt cheap compared to anywhere (anywhere I'd want to live) in the U.S.

Food: $2-$3 a day if you eat out every meal.

Housing: $250/month rents you a very nice house in Phuket Town. Slightly more for beach rentals.

Golf, paintball, diving, and the beach are all available.

The only down side? There is no such thing as high-speed internet there. Then again, if you live in paradise, do you really want to be tied to a computer every day.
