Yup, that's Jim Davidson, all right.

Also, regarding Burch's comments re autonomy of this "country," it's
very refreshing to hear some solid info on this idea.

I wonder if there is indeed some appropriate location somewhere in the
world, another oil well platform, but one lying outside the 200 mile
jurisdiction of a neighboring country. Considering the recent
developments regarding the Channel Islands, Caymans, etc., perhaps the
time has indeed come for such a libertopia.

Such a libertopia could enhance cryonics research, etc. One could even
be cryopreserved premortem in such a location.
