    No state = no state taxes.

  2. Vegas sounds like a good option to me.

    you have some prop firms there

    the casinos will teach you about positive expectancy / stupidity

    and most important, you can get flexible good paying afterhours work to pay your rent...

    and then the buffets..:D

    I tend to agree. State taxes end up as a deduction on your federal return anyway, so the impact isn't as big as one might think.

  7. From there-

    " was with some amusement that a United 747 listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and the pilot of a British Airways 747 (call sign Speedbird). Speedbird: "Good morning Frankfurt, this is Speedbird, we are clear of the active runway." Ground: "Guten morgen, taxi to your gate." The BA 747 pulls onto the main taxiway and stops. Ground (brusquely): "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?" Speedbird: "Standby ground, I'm looking up the gate location now." Ground (with typical German impatience): "Speedbird, have you never been to Frankfurt before?" Speedbird (coolly): "Yes, several times in 1944, but I didn't stop." "

    extremely funny and probably as true as the enlightening report on Switzerland ... British Airways 747 pilots are generally aged 75 +

  9. Vegas is cool fun to live in. And, like many others have mentioned, state taxes don't really enter into the equation until you're actually making income from trading, housing costs are very low.

    The great thing about the west coast is that if you're chomping at the bit to make some trades, and haven't saved up much in living expenses (to get you through that 3-12 month learning curve), you can always get an after hours job pretty easily. (Especially in Vegas).
