I'm wondering why satellite phones never caught on with the yachting
crowd, talk about chic...they can afford it too.

Lets go back to the homeless... I'm wondering why Weyerhauser never
developed a folding cardboard home that you could fold up and fit in a
shopping cart... Then I see these foldiing canoes that some friends of
mine here in NH make, and WHAM! Folding HOUSEBOATS.... build a trailer
park in a bayou swamp out of folding houseboats... or on Lake Titicaca
or Lake Victoria. Build folding houseboats for third world people to
live in.... with a water filtration system, solar oven, and fish
traps.... Heck you could put a cammo pattern on them and jack the price
up and sell them in the Cabelas catalog as luxury floating duck
