OK, I feel I started something that maybe out of control...lol

I hope members of this group do not look at those from the south as
uneducated inbreeds. I do poke fun at the stereotypes we have here in the
south, but know this is not the case for the most part. However, I do
understand that the meth ridden trailer parks of Arkansas do offer a lot of
amusement that their expense. 

I would like others to not discount mine or others from my state abilities
to aid transhumanist ideas just because of our rural location.

What's a reluctant transhumanist?  Is it anything like a reluctant virgin?
