Posted:Ok so a thought has recently come to me that would require quite a few hands and quite a bit more preperation. All I want to do with the rest of my life is spin fire and enjoy living. I know I am not alone in this desire. Therefore the only sensible thing in my mind has been to save up enough money to buy some land somewhere, make a generous sized garden, and live. The basic needs of food and shelter would be covered. Next comes the idea of companionship, and in marches the commune ideal. All comments welcome, but this really is a serious idea of mine so lets not get too out there folks. Possible location: ALASKA; homestead act is still viable in alaska meaning you pick a plot of land, make it better, and after seven years its yours. Any takers?

Posted:Just to be masogynistic before bed....

Cooking, cleaning, making me a sammich.... hmmm....

Sexing, entertaining, rallying.... uhh....

Nah, I think your list is fine, I was going to start adding things, but they are just subsets.

Though I guess someone familiar with the "codes" in the place where the commune would be, depending on what is installed.
ex. Building/zoning, electrical, plumbing, etc etc. As an ex-carpenter I know some places can be sticklers for small details.

one that is close to discovering perpetual energy creation hopefully that way we would never run out of power. Or a teleporter then we could just port ourselves to HoP HQ to resupply

Posted:I um... I have had, for some time now, an idea for a perpetual energy machine, though it would require some energy to begin it....

My problem is I'm not a machinist or electrician so I wouldn't know how to go about wiring it.

I think it would work, if I could find someone to make what's in my head a reality.

Posted:Very nice. Wow, i leave for like 2 days and this thread has grown exponentially. Now let's try to take this for what we have for sure. what would be the most logical place to do this for sure? We culd vote on whatever seems most popular. Cuz where will greatly affect our plans. Several ideas were thrown out but nothing was rly agreed upon from what I could see.

Never take candy from strangers...... But popcorn is okay!

Oh, and lighting things on fire, assorted things, for performance or otherwise. ^_^

I don't want to pry if it's private, I was just wondering.
