Everyone wants their own private tropical island, right? Some people even talk about it on their blogs. But since there are a finite number of uninhabited tropical islands on the planet and nobody's giving them away, here's what I want instead:

I figure there's gotta be a few of these out there that have outlived their usefulness. Maybe BP's trying to unload a couple on craigslist. You pick one of these up cheap, you get yourself a jet ski, and presto! instant tropical getaway.
But of course, you're going to need cash for upkeep and provisions so you remodel a little. You turn your offshore oil rig into an exclusive fantasy themed hotel. You cater to wealthy William Gibson fans, or people who really liked the movie Waterworld.

You wouldn't have to get quite this fancy, but you see where I'm going with this right? It could be our own micronation. We'll make a flag and declare war on Antigua.
So. Who's with me?
I call queen.
