The interesting part of this new sea government system is the effect it will have not only on the ocean but also the other governments. For instance, will the US feel threatened by more countries popping up all over, even near their coasts? Well it cant be that near because international law requires just about anyone to be at least 200km from their coastline since this is where most countries borders start. Basically, a country starts 200km out at sea and if you trespass that you are basically illegally crossing a border. To put it simple.
So these floating countries would have to be 200km out at sea. So many questions on law. How will other countries see these floating countries? Will they have embassies? How will they enforce their floating borders?
Reminds me a lot of the movie “waterworld”.
Seasteading almost sounds like homesteading but its an entirely different concept. The idea which I have been thinking about for years now is apparently not only an idea for some people but there are actually people that’s planning it as I’m writing this. This is brilliant because to take out the idea is quite a mission and will need resources like one can not believe.
Seasteading is the concept of building a city or not only a city but an entire government, a country on sea. This awesome idea has actually been around for some time now. The logistics could be a nightmare and the idea is still in the early stages.
So basically seasteading is the a country, built by people on the ocean.
Since the Royal Mail’s IPO i’ve decided that, that is the primary stock or rather EFT that I will be trading. Royal Mail today enters it’s 13 day since going public and thus far no big surprises have sprung up.
There is a strike at the Royal Mail today but this does not seem to effect the candlesticks just yet. The Royal Mail according to me at least is still cheap.
Lets hope Royal Mail continues to be a stable and slow moving stock worth our time and effort.
The Gold price is low because the US has to keep it low. When a empire such as the US is in danger of losing their economical status because of their massive debt, the people then start buying gold because historically gold is the safe haven and the only real currency or form of money that survives.
So, as soon as people see that gold rises they lose trust in the dollar because the dollar is “supposed” to be the real safe haven, or so the US wants.
The US has to default some time or another and the delay is making things worse. They know this and when the rest of the world starts to realize that the mighty dollar is about to become as worthless as toilet paper then once again people will do what they have done throughout history, buy gold.
This is why the US has to artificially keep the gold price low, if they dont it will seem that people are losing faith in the dollar, which they actually are.
This means the price of gold should now be around $5000 instead of just $1350. It soon will be.

Ebay is a buy for me at the moment.
An interesting piece by the University of Florida in the US says that you can basically see if someone has Alzheimers by their ability to smell peanut butter. Imagine that
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A dollop of peanut butter and a ruler can be used to confirm a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimer’s disease, University of Florida Health researchers have found.
