Once upon a time, ADG and I had kicked around the idea of starting our own country on a secluded atoll in international waters, kissing the rest of the planet goodbye. Our plans (pipe dreams perhaps) came to naught, as we were too dependent upon others to do the heavy lifting. Well, good things happen to those who wait, and now the stars have aligned, filling in all the missing links to our previous plan, heavy lifting by others included.
Today, let us give thanks for the ingenuity and creativity of Pay Pal founder and Facebook angel investor Mr. Paul Thiel, who has created Seasteading, the building of personalized islands, brand new, sovereign countries built to spec, using what are essentially oil drilling rigs in international waters. You buy it, tell Paul where you want it, wire the necessary funds and off you go. A genuine, customized, Lord of the Flies world, created just for you.
Not long ago, I mentioned a move to a sunnier clime may be in order. The entire planet has just become my oyster. ADG, you in?
