Ok, periodically my mad scientist starts to come out and now that I have a bit more of public persona I might have to keep this more under control.

But one of the key things that any aspiring mad scientist needs is a lair.

My current favorite idea is to build a solar powered anything to oil machine, shove it on a boat, and send it off to that giant collection of plastic in the middle of the pacific. By reducing the plastic bits into oil, one could then make new larger plastic blocks. These plastic blocks might be useful for buildling ones own floating island.

Ecofriendly and a cool lair--what could be better.

But how would you defend it from annoying do-gooders? You need armaments! Artillery! BATTALIONS AND LEGIONS OF TROOPS! :)

I need a lair so I can start my experiments so I can create my unstoppable army of ***********.

I mean the current issue of make has suggestions on how to build several useful bioengineering tools.

Unlesss you're planning on being either a henchperson or the agent sent to foil my plans moments before their fruition, I can't actually tell you my plans.

Where'd the fun be in giving advance warning? Then it'd be easy to make the proper preparations to try and thwart my vast army of ********.

First, it'll be a great story. I'd think you'd want a friend there to portray your story in a positive light.

And second... Diane! You can't have an army of streetlamps AND dolphins! Everyone knows they don't get along.

Why build when you can buy pre-fab?

You could buy this home. It's affordable, and has the perfect mad scientist lair already built in!

OMG That is an increadible lair!

Wow, if I could just buy a house, get some permits, and start diging for 20 years I'd be set.

Did you see the price? Its cheaper than some condos in pasadena.

Actually, it's cheaper than the condo I am living in! The last sale that took place in this building was for $755,000. Which is sick.

Melody and I briefly thought about buying the fortress and moving there. It's 20 minutes from Vancouver, Canada, which is a good place for her acting career. And, it's still in the US, and in the Pacific Northwest (where I went to law school), so I could still do law stuff.

I still have scans of the November 2003 Natural History article on it here: Plastic in the Pacific, if anyone wants to read more.

I did learn about the plastic in the pacific problem from you...

My best idea for how to deal with it is actually several robat ships that eat the plastic and turn it into fuel. (and possibly make large plastic bricks to collect later).
