    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.

    Ellmer, what part of NO you do not understand?

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

    Ellmer, your intentions appear fraudulent to me.

    I think, the scepticism about the reality show is justified.
    If the show fails the public opinion will not matter.
    Right now, the public opinion does not matter. Not much to loose.
    Randolph decided to take his seatsteading in this direction. OK with me.

    Hi Ocean,
    I have been here on the Gulf side for a while.
    Seems like I am going to be here longer. I like it here.
    It might be St. Petersburg for me. Key West is nice too.
    Things look good between St. Petersburg and Key West somewhere
    out there in the Gulf. I thought I mention it.

    I agree with Ken and j smith.

    This is why ranting posts, wining posts, agression posts, stupid posts, funny posts, off topic posts, etc… are not helping to achive the goal to make seasteading happen…only thread discipline, links, and informed posting does…
    .

    I wrote this before and I will write it again:
    I do not need someone from Columbia censoring me and limiting my freedom of
    speech while I am living in the USA.

    Hellow j smith,
    About the salon talk, I have posted.
    So, I aint no garden flower.
    And I feel comfortable when I am armed with guns also.
    Before I would use harsh language or strong action, I look for peace.
    But my religion is not pacifism.
    It is just that my native language is not English, so it gives me no
    satisfaction to curse anyone out. Yes, in my everyday life I frequently
    hear four letter words that start with the letter f.
    My professional life is based on helping other people (healthcare).
    I got used to the idea that strong language can lead to strong actions,
    and I can loose my licence to practice. When I do not have a job,
    that would make my financial ablity very limited. I could break bad, but
    I do not want to.
    So, you guys will have put up with the salon talk of my limited knowledge
    of the English language.
    And yes, I can show poof of my past: I still have that passport when I was
    allowed to enter the USA, I got it in a refugee camp in Austria, after
    I got across the iron curtain, after my reeducation in a youth communist
    laborcamp. The passport sais Feidempass, it is a Helsinki agreement traveldocument
    issued to political refugees. In the section of national origin, it states : ungeklart.
    Homeless. I keep this passport with my valid US citizen passport.
    I remember where I came from. I am not a common criminal. And I try to choose my
    word according to it.
