Haha, Cape Town is anything but uneducated and destitute.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Hey, that's another question.  How do you end up in Cape Town while other Mormons end up riding around in Suburbville, America?  Your choice, luck of the draw, or are they two different things?
Probably not a Goat, either.

Apart from the slums, high violent crime rates and AIDS epidemic. I also doubt you'll be missioning the rich and middle classes of the city.

Still bad use of statistics though Keno, i doubt the majority of U.S mormons would be considered 'poor and destitute', have you ever heard of Las Vegas?.

It wasn't my choice. In fact, I had considered what it would be like to go on missions on every continent but Africa and Antarctica. I was very surprised. The Apostles choose where every missionary goes and we believe they are inspired in this decision.

Also Keno re-check your facts, there are 13.8 million LDS worldwide and that was a year ago.

I'll be in the English-speaking area of the mission. In the mid-to-low population densities.

I don't know much about cape town so that map doesn't exactly mean anything.

Huh.  I guess that's another difference between Mormons and Baptists, there's absolutely no way I'd let the folks at the Southern Baptist Convention decide how I'd spend two years of my life.

So uh, why no internet?

And munchkin, that means he's going to an area by language, not by income.

Well obviously, but generally missions are somewhat charitable endeavours. And as such would be wasted on the already well off.

I had a post, but I got rid of it. I'm not going to argue with faith, as I was told I would always lose in the end, and I would feel better to just ignore them and move on.

I can sort of see the no internet and vidjas thing, but no books or music?

I've always pictured Krakow Sam as smuggling Oscar Wilde novels in a sack under the cover of darkness, whilst being hunted by attack helicopters with orders to kill; wearing his trusty fedora and with the help of his ever changing ethnic sidekicks.

What I think will be very interesting is dropping off the radar for 2 years when it comes to technology and video game news then coming back and seeing what's changed. For example, a 2 year cliffhanger in Homestuck may be a bummer but I look forward to the huge archive binge when I get back. There'll be lots to look into.
