What the... dA, what are you up to with this insanity? :rabbithole: makes little sense to me.
[Okay, as of today (12/2), this is officially over. The paper is due today, so I won't be working on it anymore. Thanks to StevenGilby for helping!]

Hi guys. I know I don't usually do this, but I have to ask. I have an assignment I have to work on over Thanksgiving (I know, who gives classwork over break, right? My anthropology professor, apparently.) So, here's the thing: I need to talk to a minimum of 10 people and ask them 4 questions a piece about different scenarios. Then, I'll need to ask some follow up questions to clarify and get a little more information. I will also need your age, gender and where you live (generally speaking, I don't need a specific town or city or what have you. A state, if in the US, should be fine. I don't anticipate anyone from outside the US responding, but if so, hey - that's awesome! Just let me know that.)
I realize that this is a lot to ask, so I'm willing to offer a 'reward' of a drawing for 3 of the first 10 respondents. To select the 3 random people, I'll use this generator: www.random.org/sequences/ I'll leave the subject up to the winners, though I won't draw erotica (and I'm not that great at furries or machines, though if you really want, I'll give it a shot. Just FYI). An example of what I'm offering is: Moira and Pippin sketch by SephirothsFlamedWingbut obviously with my current level of ability, since this piece is 3 years old. Sound good? Don't hesitate to refer others back to me, if you think about it.

Okay, now for the 4 questions.

1. Your state has just passed a bill that requires landowners to pay for an anthropologist to come out and survey their land for any new development on it- from building a business, a house, or adding a septic tank. They justify this bill as identifying and protecting unknown archeological sites. Is this a good idea, and why or why not?

2. Your hometown has an offer from a major business to build it's corporate headquarters there, offering 800 new jobs and an economic boost to the area. However, they want to build it on a historical site of some degree of importance to the community. What cultural and economic issues are at stake, and is it worth it?

3. A construction company is clearing the land when one of the drivers locates ancient human remains on the site. The boss tells them to ignore it and go back to work. You're a friend of one of the crew, and they complain to you about it and asks you for advice. What do you tell them, and what do you do about it, if anything? Why?

4. You're talking with an old friend of yours at their house, when you notice that their living room is full of Native American artifacts. Your friend tells you that their dad collects them, and that he's recently found a site he thinks dates to the early 19th century. Just then, their dad walks in and talks about how he and a friend have been digging up artifacts in a national park. What do you do? What do you say to them? Do you do anything after you leave?

This closes Nov. 30. Any help is appreciated!

I can't think of any more appropriate description of having to wake up and be functional in the wee hours of the morning than 'damned.'
