I find that incredibly hard to believe. Everyone wants something, even for a split second. If you're content in life, you're bored with it and seek to change it. If you're comfortable, you're looking for something to break that comfort. Maybe not now, maybe not in 5 months, but you will seek something to change the routine of life.
There's a difference between something that you just "want to do" and something that you feel is worthy of being put on your bucket list. Like sure, I'd love to top a regionals, or have the side I'm supporting in an election win, but it's not something that I refuse to die because of. If Polaris doesn't have a bucket list, then that's fair enough, there's no obligation.

I'm going to keep my race private because it won't help the discussion in any way.
As if you're not white.
Black people have actually been persecuted for their race. To pretend that "honky" and "n****r" are symmetrical is ridiculous.
EDIT: Hey, look, even the swear filter agrees with me

Well I'm not going to pretend to be neutral on this matter. I am 100% white (well, probably 97% or whatever, I haven't had a DNA test, but my ancestry is pretty easy to trace and it's English, Welsh and French, back to the 1600's) and I don't find either "honky" or "cracker" offensive. If you find these words offensive or even go as far to call them the "H-word" or - ok well the C-word is either c*** or cancer - why? What about these words upsets you?
EDIT: ok Artorias, I read your status comment answer to these questions. My answer (beware it's f***ing graphic but you should see it):

almost 3 years of time... has anyone actually done this before?
You'd have to only play 55 minutes every day to make 1000 hours last 3 years. And yes, I have played over 1000 hours on Dragon Quest IX, and I still am a while off completing it. That's only counting my main cartridge too (which I lost, but had 1000+ hours on before I lost it). I have a backup one I bought for a friend who then went off the game and I was making new characters to import into my main's inn.
As for my bucket list, I have two. One is very long and requires immortality to be invented before I die. The other one, that doesn't require that, has one item on it so far, decided this very morning.
- Find a greylag goose egg whose parents are dead or otherwise unable to care for it, and be there when it hatches and have the gosling imprint on me. I will then raise it as my child.
Obviously I want this because I love greylag geese and I wouldn't steal an egg. That would be harmful and wrong.

All I can think about (other than the amusing card image) is how cards like this and similar, while an interesting gimmick even within the Link era, is incredibly awkward in practice. I just think it's WEIRD for players to specifically choose what zones they place their cards in, and how these choices can look REALLY stupid when cards like this are involved.
Picture a playmat or something, disregarding the new existence of the EMZ. There are 5 monster slots, 5 S/T slots beneath their respective Monster Zone.
When I imagine the hypothetical playing of cards, I picture you typically playing your first monster in the middle zone (I suspect DN and older video games is the cause of this), then expanding outwards from there. Same with S/Ts. If both players operate similarly in this vein, the whole gameplay seems MOSTLY natural, because they're mirrors of one another.
If you start purposefully placing Monsters or S/Ts in DIFFERENT zones than "Normal", it looks really weird, and in cases of cards like this, suspicious as hell.
"What's that? You're suddenly Setting a card in the far left zone for no apparent reason? Either that's a really weird bluff, or you're running cards that depend on columns"
That's all part of the mindgames that make column mechanics so awesome. If you know your opponent plays this card, you'll be trying to summon monsters in columns that your opponent doesn't have backrow set in, but then you're liable to screw yourself over with regards to a Link play you wanted to make. So technical!

Uhh, kaiju the denko.
Yeah, or just summon something with a continuous effect that gets around it somehow. Summoning Jinzo would allow you to MST the 5-arc magician and then beat over the denko. Summoning something that was unaffected by Spell effects would also work. Point is, it's a funny/memey situation that a lot of decks wouldn't be prepared for. Not at all good, just funny.
Anyway, just wondering: could the text saying 4+ (rather than just 4) be hinting at a legacy format using pre-link rules?

Typically, cards that summon a token to your opponent's side of the field force the token to be summoned in Defense Position, especially if the token has low ATK. This is to prevent you from summoning it in Attack Position, and then beating over it for free damage.
Other than that, excellent card! It's extremely versatile, being a non-targeting D.D. Crow that is still good vs Pendulum decks, but that is also usable as easy fodder generator, summoning good Link Material, or good Tribute Summon fodder.
