    Good luck with that—but with the extremely short free preview of articles, and absolutely none that can be read for free (to judge the level of writing), I doubt too many people will risk their money buying articles on good will alone.

    Sorry, there’s no money for investigative journalism anymore. We are now entirely reliant on the supply of young, beautiful polyglot children of privilege deciding to do it for themselves.

    A bit of a pivot on investigative journalism, but this reminds me of a story by Ray Bradbury, called “The Watchful Poker Chip of H. Matisse”: http://books.google.com/books?id=Qz1RynxDZj8C&lpg=PA880&ots=rFb6jwf9qt&dq=matisse%20eye%20ray%20bradbury&pg=PA873#v=onepage&q=matisse%20eye%20ray%20bradbury&f=false

    But I’d pay an arm and a leg to read a good piece on Body Integrity Identity Disorder.

    What is “an 8,000 report”? 8,000 pages, characters or words?
    Why not proofread if you want people to pay for it?

    What happens when they get a limb amputated, and then have phantom limb syndrome on top of BIID?
