I am currently unsupervised, anyone who knows me will tell you that this will most likely lead to trouble. =3
Non stop crashing and epic lagging are helpful in telling me it's time for bed or to go outside and get a life.
The good news is, if you beam down, you'll only experience one of the three, and that for a split second.
So what's it like at the poles?
Our current belief with hot gas giants like this is that conditions at the poles are pretty much like the equator, but throw in solar storms so intense you might just get fatal radiation exposure before your body is torn apart. There's pretty much no version of these planets where you get to beam back up, even their moons (if they have any) would be molten, irradiated blobs.
Could be worse, though. Kepler 70b and 70c were actually inside their host start at one point.
