Have you ever used Mechanical Turk to validate, classify, and clean data sets that would otherwise be mind numbingly impossible for someone to do? If so, were the results useful? What are some tips to make sure one's Mechanical Turk experience goes off without a hitch? How do i best check their work. [more inside]

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.

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.)
