I suppose it'd give me Internet coverage in the garden, just need a tablet rated for 20,000 leagues

    How about you share the winnings with me? We'll make an empire underwater like in G.I.Joe Retaliation

    I would, you know I would, but I do need to make sure I can afford the helipad disguised as a disused oil rig complete with preassurised lift to alpha dome. Then there is the maglev uni-rail train system and connecting tunnels between alpha dome, beta dome and the west wing. It all costs money you know

    Why do i get the feeling you're not even going to have ONE room just for me? I'd prefer being in the Beta Dome. However, i need the uni-rail system to be no further than 10m from my room. Also, in which area will the submarines be docked? Need to visit land every so often for experiments on humans,,,

    Bioshock is exactly where my mind went, too.

    You are right, we both know you are right. But mentioning it public may make me rethink renting out the granny annex with specail cold store for your human experiments (I won't ask). I have been thinking of giving to a hare krishna cult instead...

    Funny you should mention submarines. I'm actually finding very difficult to source one. I ask for a nuclear powered sub and no-one bats an eyelid. I mention the colour I want and they think I'm taking the p*ss. It's not as if I want to live on it! That's what the secret(?) underwater base is for...

    I have to wonder what effect this would have on whales, dolphins etc. I hate to be the hippy here, but I know sound causes issues for (say) river dolphins in the Yangtze, and sonar can cause grief as well.

    On a related note, today I have learnt that
    ...before ship traffic noise permeated the oceans, tones emitted by fin whales could have traveled as far as four thousand miles and still be heard against the normal background noise of the sea... on a quiet day in the pre–ship-propeller oceans, fin whale tones would only have fallen to the level of background noise after traveling thirteen thousand miles, that is, more than the diameter of the Earth.
    Which is pretty damn cool.

    I think a cold store would be beneficial. However, if the costs exceed the output profit from the tests done, then it's pointless. I may just head north and grab an iceberg. Shouldn't be too much hassle... then again...

    I guess asking for a nuke sub may be a little hard to get. I know someone near the Russian base who sells them for dirt cheap, providing we offer them Alpha dome. I guess we could ask for a trade off of 5 subs for the dome? I'll help you build another dome, and we'll also have subs. Win win situation, i guess. It's up to you, you're running the show, i'm just a part of it. Either way, this will in turn help shift the iceberg and save money.

    The empire is a tmcdknight empire. You cannot replace it with codswallop. However, after a few years, and expansion, we may be able to accommodate other edugeeks. This is again, up to tcmd.
