Come on now. Obviously the employees would be paid from the revenue (income) generated by the island from it'* hotel and entertainment operations. As I said in previous posts, this is a BUSINESS, to make money. How do you think people are paid elsewhere?lol

lol @ the Bonneville Island comment...thats funny as hell, I'm really LOL'ing here, hahaha.

Yep...and in a few years, football players everywhere will be saying, "...when we win the Superbowl, I'm going to Bonneville Island!"

Right. Once we get the 50 or 100 grand donated to buy the island, who'* forking out the next million for hotel? Shipping lumber and supplies will be a bitch.

The original idea was to make it someplace we could have as a central location for bonnefests, and it just kind of snowballed from there.

Now, here'* the craziest thing! We can buy one of those insanely wooded islands, buy lots of power tools and go mountain man-style! At least for the first few years.

I'm definitely also LOLing at the Bonneville Island comment. To end the jinx, we must never call it that in real life. I wonder if we can do the Dutch "land rescuing" method to push dirt into water and make more land area. We can make a Bonneville shaped island!!! Now, which generation?

Let'* start a contest to pick an island. Feel free to add your own. Then, there will be an island designing contest. The winner will be given one free $5 share of the property!

We have a list of candidates. Feel free to add your own. Does anyone know if that island that sticks off of Washington and is visible on nearly every map is for sale? It would probably cost a ton, though. Here'* the first one:

The Eagle'* Nest:
http://www.privateislandsonline.com/eagles-nest.htm
There is so much lumber! Adeianos strongly recommends a drag strip down the flat side, and I see a boat race track around it. It looks good, plus it'* fairly closer to most of us than Nova Scotia is.

But here'* a Nova Scotia island:
http://www.vladi-private-islands.de/...at+Island.html
This is really good because it'* called Flat Island. Now we just need to call it Bonneville Flat Island! Awesome!If I'm not mistaken, this is fairly close to Kejimkujik National Park. That'* nice for those who get sick of all the Bonneville love that'll be happening. Plus, the price is good. That can be the starter island because of the severe lack of lumber, location, and space. But I'm sure the seafood is good. We could probably get some nice money reselling fish.

I remember that Washington used to have pubs that got people really drunk and then shot them into the dark, narrow halls beneath the buildings in the city via trap doors. These drunks were then made into boat slaves. I'm not trying to imply much, but let your imaginations run wild considering that and "employment opportunities." Plus, how much do amusement park employees get paid anyway?

I think it would be best to not fight over which generation to shape the island, but to shape it into the arrowhead.
