Listen to Erathoniel ranting on and on in good ol' conservative Christian fashion.
I am planning to seceed from the United States if things get too bad.

Introducing the CountryBoat

     Imagine a huge ship, powered by solar energy, with greenhouses and fishing. Together, we can flee the nation before the nukes hit. One contribution of $100,000 can secure you eight slots on this ship. Sure, we may not have an experienced leader, but neither does America. This modern day Noah's Ark (without animals, save pets [please spay/neuter animals])will be launched when the first signs of crapper-jumping are here, and should carry enough equipment to stay at sea for a measure of an estimated four years. Water will be carried for this time, and heat-based desalination (steam chambers based on electric heating units) and solar stills (not as fast, but same principle) will both be used to desalinate water. Greenhouses and fishing will give food. We may even build an antenna, so you can still have the Internet and satelite TV.

     This is kind of a joke, since it would cost around $10M to make, estimated, but, it would be fun to try if I had the money. It's rooted in "sound" techniques (warning: bring fertilizer for greenhouses, unless you wanna use what you make), but it's still pretty crude. You could get internet, though, which would be worth it all.

      No, I don't like Obama. I'm not a sore loser. I'm a sore loser who insists upon being extra sore. And I'm paranoid. Obama kinda scares me.

It's take more than 4 years to build it...probably a decade or more.

You could just go hang out in Canada or Mexico for awhile...much easier.

Whinge, whinge, whinge.

Some of the cost is for labor.

Yes, I could go to Canada or Mexico, but... that feels like cheating.

I told myself that so many times.

Did I mention that I can sell it in multiple ways:

Ecologically friendly: We grow our own food, and fish only for survival, minimizing impact with our solar panels.

Socially secure: Lax rules, do whatever you want, just don't hurt the other patrons.

Millitarilly sound: Did I mention I put railguns on that thing? Dunno if they'd work, but I could always test them. I love the smell of tungsten slugs in the morning.

You're fifteen.  All you can do is imagine little playplaces like this while you go to school.

Gimme a break.

Nah, I do most of the imagining at home. And it's technically not a "playplace", since there'd still be at least a fourty hour work week.
