How To Drop Off The Face Of The Earth

The other day I was thinking about what it would take for someone to just disappear, just seem to have dropped off the face of the earth, if they were to wish to do so.

I’m not talking illegal stuff, no, just using strictly legal means; how can a person just disappear into thin air without a trace?

It’s not like I’m planning to do this anytime soon or ever really, but well sometimes my mind does wonder off to such weird ideas, and I think that it’d be cool to have a plan if someone ever felt the urge to do something like that, even for a little while, if one day they just got fed up of it all maybe.

So I’m thinking these following steps could somehow work and make it seem like you dropped off the face of this earth:

– Throw away your mobile phone, blackberry, whatever connected mobile devices you have.
– Sell whatever you don’t need to different people so no one gets suspicious.
– Choose a destination country to move to that is vast, where you can move around freely and easily extend your visa.
– Get a visa to that country.
– Make one-way plane reservations through a number of different travel agencies transiting through some other countries to get there, with the outgoing flight not on the same day as your incoming one.
– Travel without saying goodbye to anyone.
– Once at your destination country, move to a small rural town or island.
– Find a simple job at a small place that doesn’t get you too much attention.

And well, for as long as your passport is valid, to everyone you know, it’ll basically seem like you just dropped off the face of the planet.

Now that I’ve finished this post, it feels even weirder that I’m thinking of this, but well the time has been wasted so I’ll publish it anyway.

What do you think? Would you ever think of doing something like this? And do you think there is an easier way maybe?
