Comment Re:Buy an island (Score 1) 740

I'd buy an island and make a nation out of it. I would live there with the family and my army of 1000 topless female slave-warriors. The island would have a private airstrip and a private jet, piloted by a topless female slave-warrior, that would whisk us around the globe. People would become jealous of my topless female slave-warriors because Grub Island would be the only place on the planet with them. I would have a lottery with $1,000,000 ticket prices. The prize would be one week on my island with 10 topless female slave-warriors to be at the winner's beck and call. After the winner departed Grub Island, the other topless female slave-warriors would destroy the lottery winner's 10 because they would then be soiled and not worthy of me.

Dude, your island, so lame. I would instead buy an island adjacent to Grub Island and open up Dave's All Nude Badass Island!!! (neon signage mandatory of course). 1000 topless female slave-warriors??? Nope. Too much work. We will limit this to 100, and have some kind of competition from all the disgruntled (read: horny) warriors from Grub Island, and.. oh hell, lunch break is over. Back to my appointed task of wage slavery..

Actually, there's a better place for this. New Hampshire has a range of mountains known as the Presidential Range. Mount Washington is probably the best known of these. There are several peaks in this range that don't have names associated with Presidents (or patriots like Samuel Adams and Benjamin Franklin). I'd propose renaming one of those mountains after McKinley. New Hampshire actually renamed Mt. Clay (named for Henry Clay) to Mt. Reagan, though the US government still considers the peak to be Mt. Clay.

Sorry, nope. All peaks shall be named after President Trump. No other names shall be permitted. For convenience, all peaks shall be helpfully numbered, so Mount Washington may be referred to as Mount Trump 371.

It's OK, you'll learn to love the new naming conventions like I did!

How do I get a poop transplant to deal with obesity and type II? Presumably this will clear my stress hormones too.

Since it's a pretty new thing, I imagine you'd either have to join a trial, or find a back-alley donor.

You probably don't want to know that freeze-drying poop and putting it into capsules and then taking it orally has been shown to also work...

Um, wouldn't that be a "back-door" donor? This is Slashdot, and we must be precise..

i switched from 5 or 6 cokes a day, to 5 or 6 beers per day.. my weight hasn't changed at all -- but i feel MUCH better. Go figure, right?

You're doing it wrong! Whiskey has far fewer calories than beer or sugary soft drinks. Just watch it with all those unhealthy mixers.
