I'd love to do this. But I have, like, a job. And taking more than two weeks of leave requires approval by high up types. And I don't think, "going on Odyssey" would qualify for the seal of approval. This makes me sad, and hate my job right now.

It's not the same as Mimosa or Dionaea or leaf stoma, which move via ion channels, but it is changing position in three dimensional space over time. Technically speaking, though even nastic movements and stomatal movement only really move in the same way that a balloon moves when you let all the water out, because plants don't have a solid framework to brace for movement. Ions are pumped through channels to change the osmotic balance, causing the water to passively move out of the cell.

A less problematic praxis would probably be something like tracking disseminules or germination in a barren field. Has anyone ever conducted a task over a period of several years?

I've seen a similar comic, but it was a Korean comic. In it a police officer catches a young man slipping his hands into people's pockets. He's about to arrest him, when he finds out that he slipped notes into their pockets reading that they are special and wonderful people. He then let's the young man go.

And then the people realize that all their money is missing as well.

Not the same...

I wouldn't want to do anything remotely suspicious in person near any major communications towers, military facilities, major landmarks or government buildings. Bullets hurt. :(

Only in Africa though, according to the experts.
