The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
Dear Sirs or Madams:
Could you outsource your entire life to India? What about live literally by all the rules of the bible for a year? Or never tell a lie, no matter what, for a month?
Author A.J. Jacobs has done all that and more. He's made his life a series of big experiments, and on a recent visit to CNN, he challenged iReporters to join him.
Don't worry -- you won't have to follow the Ten Commandments to the letter or outsource your life. All you have to do is be polite. A.J. wants you to join him in living as the most elegant, kind, respectful, dignified people on Earth, just for one day.
It sounds simple, but A.J. says the fun will be in taking your graciousness to the limit. He came up with these examples for you to follow during your day of politeness:
--Holding the door open for your spouse is good. Holding the door open for strangers for an hour straight at your local department store – that’s great!
--Or, try writing 25 thank you notes and handing them out during the day – to the man who sells you coffee, to the toll booth operator, anyone who does anything for you.
--Or maybe put away your Blackberry or iPhone for the entire day, so you won’t be tempted to text message during meetings.
--Try bowing and curtsying instead of the boring old handshake.
--Try and see if you can dole out compliments like they’re going out of style.
--Or else, read Emily Post’s book of etiquette and try to follow everything in there to a T.
...Or be polite in some other way that you devise. You can check out A.J.'s hilarious video above (or on our assignment page) for more ideas.
Document yourself doing one or more overly polite actions and record your observations. Just have fun with it! A.J. will personally select the most polite iReporter of all, and we’re planning to showcase the politest and most interesting contributions in a video for CNN.com. To participate, just upload your submission here before January 15, 2010.

Indigenous Guamanians are facing a historic crisis regarding their land. Ownership of even a square meter of land on this tiny Island of 212 square miles is more than respected it is revered. However there is a major issue that could be extremely upsetting to land owners as the Defense Department has earmarked over a thousand acres of privately owned land for a new military installation. Much of this ancestral land has been passed down through generations for over 100 years (following the Spanish American war of 1898). Parts of this land also have archeological relics of the ancient Chamorro race which first settled this Island.
The program called “Guam and CNMI Military Relocation” was apparently negotiated by the Guam Governor with the previous Republican Administration. While it may represent a military requirement, there appeared to be little attention given to Guamanian property owners who may not have the clout to face a government initiative that may have already been settled.
The American news media has not paid attention to this matter which may be the most significant since Guam was reclaimed by the United States in 1945.
