Canadian Looking for Amazon Turk Requester Account

I'm interested in having a requester account with amazon turk. I live in Canada...But I am physically close to the US border. Can anyone tell me of an acceptable workaround to accomplish this? I've considered driving to the US to open an account but I don't want to do that unless I know for sure it will allow me to run a requester account. Any ideas? Thanks!

Use for M Turk

Help me spend my $100 Mechanical Turk credit !?! I have about $100 credit with Amazon's MT system and I haven't used the service for about a year. I just don't need it for anything. If you know what Mechanical Turk is (see here or here if not) please tell me how you would blow through $100 just for fun (or good use or charity or save-the-planet, etc.)
