How about we start a fund to buy an island for a couple thousand people to live on?

me, too!!

Cool, okay,......
Sparta it is!! Can we make it a rule, though, (a *gasp* LAW, even!) that there has to be as much HUMOR and LAUGHTER as possible? Everyone has to make everyone else laugh as often as possible. On purpose, though, not snarky lulz at the expense of others....and also, we all have to be able to laugh at ourselves & our own foibles!!

We could have auditions...if they make us laugh, they've got a shot at citizenship!

Or, how about Utopica?

The flag could have hands of different colors joining with a crop growing in the background.

Id probably be in charge of cooking for everyone, cleaning up behind everyone, taking care of the animals that are no longer amusing, fixing everything, dragging lazy butts out of bed.. by their ankles if need be, Telling everyone if they arent bleeding or having a seizure theyre fine, and settling fights and brawls. AND be hated for doing all of these things. Be pretty much like living here.. with my husband and children. But be trapped on a small Island that I couldnt hide and disappear on.

No thanks.

I do have a concern....when global warming happens and the sea levels rise....ummm...just a thought here....but will the island be a smart investment......I know i have some future waterfront property in North Dakota i brought for cheap....wondering now if i have been ripped off.

at day 15 everybody will be sick of each other, the lack of privacy and the expectation to turn it into heaven will be to much for everybody to bear.

With 1,000+ people we would have to draw a lottery every week.
Whoever wins, we eat them.

Why do I keep thinking of "the lord of the flies"??? Oh maybe its because all of the BS fights on ATS with the bickering and all of that. Yeah, I give this island less than a week.

Uh-oh.

You're stuck for now, huh... no one can rescue you yet. BUT.....It will pass!!
You sound really ticked off, though....
I promise I'll help with the animals (which I always find amusing); my kids are grown and out of the house; my husband is very low maintenance.....
and I am not hated.

Hang in there, sister.
Eventually you won't have Aunt Flo there anymore, either. It's fab!!

It would be great if "they" would leave the island alone" but "they" wont

If you built an apartment building or two on top of the two castles there to live in, you could probably comfortably fit 200 people on there. That's only $25,000 each. You could just sell your car and chip in.

Or you could do 50 people if they are each willing to sell their houses and move to the island instead.
