    As TSI’s self elected leader: I’ve decided to rally the troops. This is my call to action.(I was elected best persuassive speaker my senior year of high school so I’m kind of a big deal)

    The status quo of TSI seems to be this:

    -we get donations of money from rich people

    -we try and create a bussiness plan to justify the engineering monstrosity which was built around the flawed assumption that submarines are exepensive.

    -we sit around and bullshit/daydream about various schemes that won’t ever get off the ground until we have a boat in the water. Meanwhile: hippies belly ache about reasons why it won’t work.

    -we drag our heals on getting a boat in the water until we have mastered the bullshitting/daydreaming thing so effectively, we have no excuse not to move forward.

    -anyone who wants to lead by example toils away at styrofoam structures because TSI seems to ignore it’s forum for any sort of serious R&D work.

    Here’s my proposal:

    The gulf of mexico is full of oil right now. Awesome. It’s all over the news and the only way to make this any more of a spectacle is if superman himself showed up with a drinking straw and solved the problem like the super human water filter only Clark Kent’s kidneys can do.

    AKA: This is THE opportunity for Seasteading to make a huge press release about saving the world, and collect boo-koo venture capital in the process.

    Revenue stream #1.

    -Government oil spill cleaning grants/private clean up contracts. Pretty self explanitory. I suspect our competitive advantage is that we don’t have to employ a ship and feed it diesel. Did I mention tax exemption makes for cheap employees? There’s thousands of unemployed people who will trade 40hrs a week for tuna fish sandwhiches and a slightly dry/warm place to sleep. which brings us to my next point:

    Revenue Stream #2.

    hssp : //en.wikipedia. org /wiki/Ocean_thermal_energy_conversion + hssp : / /en.wikipedia . org /wiki/Biorock = personal submarine/AUV factory+Magnesium Mine

    Put a bunch of hammock’s on top of the solar collector and sell it as a tanning bed/charge rent. The merchanidizing opportunities for sunscreen sales alone are mind blowing.

    Revenue Stream #3.

    Pimping. What safer place to sell booty in the world than an oil/magnesium rich power plant where a bunch of sexually frustrated hippies are making bank by saving the world?

    How? Simple: we take corrogated sewer pipe and electroplate it in seacrete. Throw in a satelite phone and you have a life boat. Cut it in half and you have a boat. Lash a bunch of them together with an oil skimmer at the front and you have a combination ocean party platform and envirnomental superhero.

    Seriously: we have major money in the bank. Let’s start getting the names and numbers of volunteers right here and now.

    1st volunteer:

    I can weld, scuba, machine metal, and I have a pretty strong pimp hand. I nominate myself head of AUV R&D. Who’s with me?
