Why are most(?) of these scammers from Nigeria? What's special there that there isn't anywhere else in the world?

How realistic do you think Interstellar was and how favourable (or not) are your scientists to sci-fy (or bad science) movies?

Do you live in university like undergrads? Or do you rent your own home? Do you also have life outside Harvard?

How important do you think are MOOCs (or MOOCs providers like EDX) to the future of CS education and making the world better, since more than 99.9% of people can't go to Harvard?

As a personal example, I am, for now, still intellectually unable to go to Harvard (or MIT), but after completing Introduction to CS from MIT part 1, part 2 and (almost) finishing CS50 (from Harvard), I changed in my local university from Electric Engineering to CS. Unfortunately they still have the old thinking like "you put an input and get a specific output" from programs, but, hey, better than engineering.

Thanks :)))

We all know Facebook is pro-automation and etc (probably for cost reasons), so how do you think they could fix this in a "cheap way" - if they could? If they monitor all messages for scams and alert you when you send a gift card, they will be evil because they are reading your messages. If they add a "suspect profile" to everybody with same name as someone famous/verified, there will be real people that will be mistakenly targeted. If they block "real Zuckerberg here" in the description, they will find another way. So how do you see a possible fix?
