Better Than Prison: Life On A Scorched Sea Fort


Last time I checked, my second-favorite (*) illicit ocean-based proprietary community, the Principality of Sealand, had suffered a terrible fire and was up for sale. Nonetheless, it has allegedly offered asylum to Gary Mckinnon, the famous "NASA hacker." Or maybe it made the offer before the fire. Or maybe it's all bullshit. It certainly wouldn't be an effective way to avoid extradition to the U.S., given that no established state recognizes Sealand's sovereignty. We blog, you decide.

By the way: For those of you who were hoping The Pirate Bay would buy Sealand, I'm afraid the site's offer was rejected. Perhaps it could set up shop in Antigua instead.
