for me, one aspect of a seastead is the isolation from supplies. living in the boonies i tend to have everything needed to survive for several weeks with absolutely no dependencies on the outside world. well within some practical limits. so i would have backups (sometimes several) of all critical infrastructure, tools and parts to repair most things along with a small machine shop, above average medical supplies, and overkill on monitoring equipment for environment and systems status. like, lots of stuff like that. i live in the boonies, and ive learned that if you dont have it with you, you dont have it period. simple enough thing but when the stores are a dozen miles or more away in rough seas for unknown period of time thats the same thing. so any seastead i design will be pretty big. living quarters would be a small part of it. command and control will be as redundant and as state of the art as i can make it, after all, when you get down to it this is a sea going vessel that my life will depend on. so costly for the specs that i am comfortable with, which are admittedly above specs a typical seasteader may have.

dont get me wrong, the isolation and self sufficiency is a good thing for me, but a lot of planning goes into that. its not just the base platform which worries me, you guys seems to have those problems licked. its the rest of it that i worry about. ive learned to only trust critical infrastructure that either i design and build, or is so well proven i can adapt off the shelf items for my use. i have no intention of getting into some life threaten situation that i could have avoided because i skimped on kit loadout.

We're about 20 minutes to the closest restaurant by speed boat. 30 minutes and a ride through traffic to the nearest hospital. Where I lived before it was usually an hour drive in traffic to the main shopping area so you just go a few times a week or less.

Though I am in the process of buying a small sail boat. It has an engine and I'll add an outboard for redundancy. Plus the sail. So a liesurely ride into town could take an hour or so.

under ideal conditions sure. im thinking of worst case. im not really a pessimistic type but when it comes to survival, i plan for pretty bad conditions. and some of those plans have paid off big time. a tornado in town and a freak snowstorm that caused a 7 day multi state wide power failure affecting most of those states population on the east coast and that made many roads impassible for days (even with a pretty serious 4wd with mods), most fuel stations inoperable (no power to run the pumps), pharmacies having problems keeping meds in stock (statewide travel bans on some highways), stores running out of food and lots of the refrigerated stock they did have going bad because no power, plus limited resupply made me glad i had a weeks worth of fuel for my genset thats capable of running most of the house (just the electric stove and electric cloths dryer is excluded) and a transfer switch to do it right and make it wife safe, food for a month with several cooking sources with different fuels, lots of stocked up batteries, extra meds, tools supplies and equipment to fix the genset etc. not all of it was needed but i slept well knowing the wife and i were good. but it sucked big time for many, and especially hard for those with electric powered medical equipment. most of the unprepared just had no fuel, no heat source and no food, pretty big inconveniences. 

and thats on land. storms and their duration are unpredictable. how big is that boat anyway?

a seastead of course will have different failure modes, but there will be failures and they will happen a the worst times, like when you cant get to land with what youve got.
 
Thing is, none of that stuff happens in developed countries.

Can we all move in with you? It sound very reassuring there.

In return for food, power and guns I can offer toast making, as long as it's your bread and you're not too fussy, and I'll keep my room tidy.

depends. youll have to meet our cats standards, which are much higher than ours.

you would also have to be ok with extremely loud music at all times of the day and night, mostly pink floyd, rush, lynyrd skynyrd and other southern rock, and punk. and the music the wife and i play on our instuments; hers played well and mine that sucks. plus random weapons fire at any time.

any negatives?

yeah i get that the usa is backwards in many ways but its power infrastructure is fairly good, if aged.

anyway here is the storm i mentioned. it was kinda cool in many ways (well, not for the unprepared which was like 95% of the population that was affected by it) and was a good test of my disaster planning (ie barely any effect on the wife and i)

i had two telephone poles lying in my side yard. leaking transformer goop. they sent a crew to dig all the contaminated soil out and replace it. i have some really surreal pictures of the damage.

American weather is fooking mental compared to us soft Europeans. I've probably done 20-30,000 miles around the US. A lot of the time the sky was assaulting me in ways I've never experienced before.

LOL   right?

When the guy next door to me moved in (the dude with the 69 Camaro drag car I have posted before) the first words he said to me were "hi, were your loud new neighbors".  Well, my band is in the front room, half stack, 400W of bass, drummer is a hitter, PA...we get along swimmingly.

Just revieved a lot of PIC’s from my GF.... I know and saw those things before, but getting them send Made me think HOW REALLY F***ed UP the r0ach really is ....
With his naziLIFE crap!!
Stomach turns around  Undecided

You think the kikes who did the King David Hotel false flag bombing, then the USS liberty false flag bombing and killed innocent people in both, who got caught red handed, then killed a bunch more in 9/11 wouldn't lie about the details of WW2?  The Red Cross claimed only 200,000 Jews died in camps.  The Jews claimed 6 million, then researchers studied everything and forced them to lower the number by literally MILLIONS but they still try to claim the official number is 6 million.  

Of the people that died, most of them died from things like starvation after the allies bombed the supply lines.  The US put Japanese in camps, and if the US started losing WW2, those Japanese would have died of starvation too.  The undisputed #1 WW2 researcher in the entire world - David Irving - says gas chambers did not even exist.  There are THREE separate parties who were incentivized to lie about WW2:  global Jewry, the US govt, and the USSR.  It's COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE the official narrative is the real one with so many people incentivized to lie.

The Germans also gave the Jews plenty of time to leave, but they refused to leave.  They attempted to take over and undermine their host nation - just like they do in every single nation they enter, which is why they're ALWAYS kicked out 200+ times now - and the Germans did not like that.  They're an evil cult whose religious doctrine is anti-everyone except themselves.  It's just like Islam.  Islam states that it's ENCOURAGED to lie to non-muslims to advance the muslim cause and okay to kill non-believers and all that bullshit.  Talmudic Judaism is virtually identical.  Let's not even get into the fact the Jewish run bolshevik revolution in Russia killed 20-40 million white Christians. Russians are the real victims of WW2, NOT the lying kikes.

This is something I ponder on and off. That 1-3% figure is pretty far out. I'll bet there are people who've been reading this thread for longer than most of us have been here who've never even registered, let alone written anything.

I'm sure it's easy to be intimidated by the astonishing power and paint-stripping insight of titanic intellects such as the one I happen to possess. I still think they should make themselves known. We need a lurker amnesty.

Trollgoossens, here's the evil cult of talmudic Jews you worship:

1) Jehovah created the goyim in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The goyim is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night. - Midrasch Talpioth, p. 225-L

2) When a Jew murders a goyim, there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a goyim he may keep. - Sanhedrin 57a

3) Jews may use lies to circumvent a goyim. - Baba Kamma 113a.

4) A Jew need not pay a goyim the wages owed him for work. - Sanhedrin 57a

5) If a Jew finds an object lost by a goyim it does not have to be returned. - Baba Mezia 24a

6) A Jew may do to a non-Jewess what he can do. He may treat her as he treats a piece of meat.  - Hadarine, 20, B; Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348

7) To communicate anything to a goyim about our religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the goyim knew what we teach about them, they would kill us openly. - Libbre David 37

Whoever wrote that is a dumbass because they don't seem to comprehend all those mysterious, HIGH VOLUME wikipedia edits all originate from intelligence agencies.  They spam edit Wikipedia 24 hours a day with govt and Marxist narrative.  The US, China, Israel, etc.  Govt, corporations, and other special interest groups like the Jewish racial supremacist ADL/SPLC, etc, all do the same shit on Youtube and other sites too.

Next halving is in 2022, so expect a poor 2019 (but not as horrible as 2018), a somewhat good 2020, a great 2021 and an awesome 2022.

Halving means natural price increase, communication, easy FOMO and growth.

So, hands firm, don't shake and hold your breath for a bit. Better times ahead Wink

PS. What are you talking about funding your LND note?

No it isn’t

Hahahaha

That's what I thought.

What the fuck?  Is it possible that some amorphous powers that be had changed the halvening or that the previous calculation of 4 years could have been wrong.

I know that the exact date changes a bit here and there, depending upon how fast blocks are being mined (and whether the difficulty adjustment adequately compensates to keep the blocks on schedule), yet currently, according to the calculations of the below-linked website, we are looking at an estimated halvening date of early in the day (1am GMT-ish) on May 25, 2020.

I have always preferred to have noisy neighbours so that they don't complain if/when I want to be really noisy too. Would hate to have a "full silence lover maniac" as neighbour... especially one that wouldn't understand that the problem is theirs and should better isolate their home or buy some fucking earplugs if they are so maniac about it.
