Green Card Time

Well it's time for the DV-2008 http://www.dvlottery.state.gov/ , where those who want a USA Green Card, can go and try their luck.
I've been entering for the last 6 years, but I have calculated the odds are over 1000 to 1 of winning a Green Card.

They get about 10 Million entries, over half are invalid for some reason or another. But they also put aside a certain number for various regions. I'm in the Pacific region, so I think my chances are just a bit higher than Europeans.

The new USA passport looks really nice, although that RFID chip is just asking for trouble IMHO.

I've not spent much time inworld the last few days, I have an exam next thursday.
