Not sure if this is this is the correct place to place to post this, but I figure you guys would know the most about this sort of thing. I read somewhere that America is going to need something like 40,000 new truck drivers in the coming years, and because most people don't want to be out on the road, the job market isn't exactly going to be saturated.
My question is, would they hire a brit with minimal driving experience? I'm 23 and only got my driving licence a month ago, but I also have plenty of money to spend on the training required to drive those mammoth Murrikan trucks - I would happy to fly to murrika and enroll in a school.
Would they hire a brit with minimal driving experience, fresh out of trucker school? I'm not a crackhead or a redneck, so maybe that would put me in good stead. The whole green card/job visa system in America seems quite murky. Would a freight company go through the trouble of sponsoring a Brit for a work visa?

Guys how do I stop getting on the motorbike when Im drunk.... seriously its becoming a big problem and im sure soon im statistically sure to have a big accident. I ride my bike to uni and then a mate convinces me to have a beer and suddenly its 10 beer with a whole bunch of different mates, and im fucking hammered and the last bus has left and my bikes there and i'm just like "fuck it" and i tell myself i'll be aware and I wont speed or be stupid, but then I get on my bike and the bike takes over, I'm doing twice the speed limit on places where I know there and no cops and i'm weaving traffic, fuck. I dropped my bike for the first time ever just then, I'm off my fucking face and I ripped the bike coming up the driveway on the loose gravel and m,y back wheel spun and I dropped it. Nothing broken on the bike but i got a bloody fucking knee.
Please guys how the fuck, why do I do this? I'm studying medicine i'll be a doctor in 5 years, why am i fucking burning my bike over the bridge at 130km an hour at 9pm when i'm fucking wasted?

You're welcome to have me shot for asking, but I need some purchase advice and I know about as much about cars as /r9k/ knows about women,
I have up to AU$10k to spend and am looking at either a Toyota Landcruiser or a Range Rover.
What's the upper limit of kilometres / miles / furlongs that I should be expecting on the clock at this sort of money? From my limited understanding, Landcruisers will pretty much run forever, are Landrovers similar, or notoriously bad?
Thanks for your help
