What is the approximate cost of a fixed oil platform when you forgo the installation of drilling and pumping equipment? I am considering the feasibility of founding a micronation on an oil platform style construction, and I want to figure out what the cost of the construction would be.

This is “Science” General, not “Civil Engineering and Economics” General.

…I guess I can try to bring some focus here.

First person who can correctly explain the importance of the frost line in planetary science, and tell what it means about the chemistry of life on Earth gets a free e-cookie.

So two atoms are talking to each other and one of them says, “I’ve lost an electron!” The second atom asks “Are you sure?” and the first atom replies, “I’m positive.”

Well, I heard that joke long before I ever played Fallout 3. In fact, I actually used that joke as kind of a running gag in a short story I wrote for a physics class assignment back in my junior year of high school. My teacher really liked it.

We are soldiers, but instead of fighting for the meaningless borders, we fight for humanity. Our enemies are neither the Axis or the Allies, they are the bad genes.

On a serious note, I wanted to be an engineer at first. Then I realized that I suck at math.

On the other hand, I like chemistry, and I’m looking forward to be a chemist when I get older.

Anybody else here a chemistry fan?

I’m more into Biology to be completely honest. I really like biology from an evolutionary standpoint.


Yes, Charles Darwin apparently tried to do this when he first found the Galapagos Tortoises.
