If this is real, I'd support that Kickstarter.

Wrong. You need someone to watch the proper execution of the scientific conduct and this is me. I have experience. After it is done you will gain the experience (and of course the proof) and I will get the money. Deal?

You being the scientist and all, you have to supervise the experiment. Like you said, someone to watch over execution. I'll have to take one for the team and do the field work.

And to have SMS put me under "In spirit" every time we have gatherings, while begging for flight tickets to be couriered to me. :P


Looks like you relocated from "the place where you hailed from" very long ago which is why you have friends and family here. So the OPs question is not applicable to you, for you home is here.

But, if you had relocated, say 4-5 years ago and you had your friends and family in the place where you hailed from, would you still call it a sh*t hole?
