    So, I got an offer to work in Africa.

    On one side: growth opportunity, chance to live like a king,
    sandbox horizons, and respectability among peers.

    On the other side: surrounded by corruption, exploitation and
    misery beyond a gated community which pretty much will
    condemn me to liaise solely with stinky expats.

    What do?

    I think I will go that path. It may be against my conscience but, otherwise,
    I don't want to end up old, crazy, bitter, and alone in a corner of Boston,
    spamming internet forums with annoying stupidities and copy pasting trash.

    FYI, you-know-who doesn't live in Boston. They ran him out of town years ago.

    black is great. black actually controls the game more than white. much like salary negotiations, the first to mention money gives up the advantage. it's black that really sets the direction of the game. then, too, there is the great expanse of the continent. there are frighteningly poor and violent places in many parts of the world. i like the black side of the sicilian every time.

    The use of "smelling salts" will likely be of some help.

    I can pick between South Africa, Ghana, and Cameroon.
