THE ISLAND IDEA
    #1143471 - 12/15/02 03:45 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Lets all pitch in and buy a island, and make our own laws.  We could live without fear of our goverment.  Just like that movie that has that titanic kid in it.  This is not my idea it was some other member's idea a couple years back.  There was a huge thread on it.

If only I had a extra couple million to buy one :frown:

First you have to find an Island that isn't claimed by any country, and if it isn't, who do we buy it from?

Did they get you to trade, your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change? And did you exchange, a walk on part in the war, for a lead role in the cage?

I used to think about this, but from what I've heard it would cost several billion dollars to purchase an island and make it our own country. And then we'd have to organize a bunch of shit so that weirdos don't come in and start stealing shit and knocking things over..... it would be amazing if it could be pulled-off... so yeah I got $5 on it too lol

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

You can buy a good sized island for a few million US still.  Do a few searches on Google and you'll find all kinds of stuff. 

Founding your own nation is an idea that many have kicked around, including myself.  :smile:

this reminds me of that movie "the beach"
not a bad movie...i liked it. the whole concept of living like they did in the movie Really appeals to me. i'd love it.

i wonder if we could just take over an island, like someone else said, instead of buying it. if it's a small island and noone lives there...lets just set up camp.

whoops! i totally skipped on the 'titanic kid' part...

i'd say you're right..that's about 100,000 each for 300 people....but i bet half those fuckers couldn't deal with the whole beach life thing.

definately an ultimate dream for me too.
