    There are some tv shows. Here I do not mean that I think those shows are
    successful or realistic or whatever. I just mean there are.
    Whale Wars, Bering Sea Gold, Houseboat Wars, Yukon Man, …
    the list is long. Lots of documentaries, lots of dramas, lots of lots
    on TV.
    To a certain extent, all are OK with me. I do not take them so seriously.
    … Meteorite Man …
    One of my college friend went to Antarctica to collect meteorites, there
    is no TV show of that, but he found lots of meteorites. How could he
    stand the cold? He is Canadian, he is used to it. In Canada they have a couple
    months of tough sledding.
    .
    I think, there is going to be enough people for the seasteading drama.

    I rout for the success of the show.
    I wish them the best.

    Reported shark attacks. So attacks may be not increased,
    just the reporting is increased.
    .
    Lets get the gullables.
    .
    Did you know that the word gullable is not in the dictionary?

    Well, we are back to basics. ” we ” , host nation, In international waters there are no
    host nations. I must repeat myself on the risk of being cruel, outside eez.
    Who payes for it? I must repeat myself: ” selfsupport “.
    .
    Hi ellmer, where are all those spheres you claim you have built?
    A photo would be nice.
    .
    Server migration is upon us.
    .
    Thinking “I cannot” makes me right for sure.
    Thinking “I can” give a chance.
    .
    Salon talk here or there, I am not here to talk.
    And I invest in things that I develop.
    I do not have to convince myself to be credible.
    .
    I hope all is good. And I wish happy server migration to all.
    May the cyber gods be kind to you.

    That is a very good question : ” … what is half of the people decide they do not want to leave …”
    I would like to answer this question not only to j smith but to others too.
    My idea would be a floating structure that could be built bigger and bigger conyiuously.
    So a small structure could be built on land and launched in water, floated to a position,
    and built bigger and bigger. At a point the ‘platform’ , floating structure would become
    a size, where another smaller floating structure could be built on it and launched.
    At that point there would be two structures, on can change location the other one can
    stay. Both structures could be built bigger and bigger and so on. People could decide
    on wich structure they want to be and could go back and forth. Boats are needed anyway.
    I think, the ‘free to choose’ idea is important.

    @ellmer;
    What would be the diameter of a single spherical concrete structure, you could do
    for 20K USD?

    Well, the floating city project could include stationary tower too, because it can
    be refloated. But I do not play the contest game. I would just like to have a place
    to live.
    .
    For me a floating structure makes more sense. I would like mobility to avoid conflits.
    One possible conflict can happen with the International Seabed Authority, because they
    want to regulate the seabed, and that is about anchoring too. Though whatever is done,
    the water column is still unregulated outside of EEZ. The USA do not recognise the ISA yet.
    .
    Oil companies avoid conflicts by pooling resources from one country to another when
    tax laws become disadvantegous. The same thing could be done with seasteading.
    .
    I am a bit partial to the Atlantic because I am a double citizen US and EU. So I can float
    here and I can float there, but I would reather float outside EEZ on the High Seas.
    I like warm climates. I think the cold weather could be a big disadvantage, for example
    the need of heating to stay alive. I have lived in very cold places, where the winter
    gets to be 40 below zero Fahrenheit. I also lived in moderate places where no heating,
    nor airconditioning was needed. At least I did not need any. Life is easier in moderate
    climate. I have also lived in the Mojave desert where the air is very dry, 2 inches of
    rain per year, and temperatures during the summer can reach 120 F.
    I think it is easier to survive a 120F than a -40F. So I would vote for Florida.
    I have not seen a hurricane yet.
    I have seen tornados, but those are mostly in Kansas. So, I try to jugle with all that.

    Just for the conversation, where would you plan this structure?
    Do you have a location in mind?

    Looks like an ambitious project.
    I guess you have mentioned it that it would not be floating, but
    it would be standing on bottom. Is that correct?

    j_smith,
    Would this be a cilindrical structure?
    What would be the dimensions of the cilinder?
    What would be the minimal outer diameter, and minimal thikness of the wall?
    What would be the lenght of the cilinder?

    My idea would be to build a cone shaped cylinder, like an inverted round pyramid.
    That way the size could be increased and the structure could be built bigger and
    bigger. If the diameter does not incerase, the lenght could be increased and
    multiple cylinders could be put together in vertical position.
    The cilinders could be built hexagonal too instead of round shape. That way it
    could be easier to put multiple cilinders next to each other.

    Hi j smith,
    How thick wall? What depts?
    I just wonder.

    Ellmer,
    I think, seatseading would be better of with more building and less lecturing.
    Post pictures of what you built lately.
