    An Illiterate White man in the United States (you can never learn to read in this hypothetical scenario).

    OR

    An educated gay Black man in Namibia (nobody knows your sexual orientation, and you don't have to reveal it if you choose not to).

    You cannot leave either country.

    My vote would go to Tehran easily. Damascus is a war zone right now.

    About 30 percent of the people who I work with are from Africa. They say it gets a bad rep and some of them have asked me why Americans think its so bad over over there.

    Granted, there are some shitty places in Africa, but there are shitty places all over the world.

    You know why it gets a bad rap? Because they want to come live here yet nobody here wants to go live there.

    Actually, the people that I work with are going to school, paying taxes, and paying tuition. All of them have said that they miss home and cannot wait to go back. :grad:
