What does the Pit think of this idea? Personally, I don't think I'd do it. Not cuz I'm against buying your own island; if you want to, go for it. However, I intend to have a family, wife, and kids. I'll be too busy to go around and buy an island.

I'm fairly curious to see if and why some of you would (or maybe would not).

Discuss.

Edit: Please explain why you would, why you would not, or under what circumstances you'd say maybe. Thanks.

I love polls that allow you to choose all the options.
I would not own an island.

You should be careful what you say. Some asshole will probably sig it.

Fair enough. Any reason why? Kinda curious, sir.

Makes commuting difficult. Storms bring a whole new meaning. Most are ridiculously overpriced piles of sand.

I'd own a private island, then make people live on it and pay tax to me

If I had the reason and money, I would.

If I had the money, I'd do it for the lulz.

This thread has made me decide to get an island when I am rich and older. I'll buy one off the Australian coast.

#12
i would use it for my "secret lair" in which to figurehead my "secret business" selling "secret nuclear warheads"

#13
I would, simply for the freedom of having your own island, no pressure, just relax. Plus plenty of space for shit like half-stacks!

Random ass poll, not the options just the fact that it has a time limit for some reason (Why would you EVER need to use that?) and multiple choice...
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be.

Buy it from a government and start my own country... Pot will be legal on this island so come free to visit whenever you want.

I mostly did that as a sort of experiment. Besides, the poll was just secondary to me wanting to hear the reasons why people would, would not, or maybe would buy an island.

Edit: I'm quite sure I won't be doing a "users can select more than one option" poll again though.

I'm totally gonna ruin you; sorry, dude. So, why did you choose all the options? Explain.

I'm having too much fun. Sorry. But seriously -- explain, people!

I would jump on it in a second if I had the money. I'd buy a smallish island, then separate from the US to make it my own country.

That'd be so ****ing awesome.

Hmm, true, storms would be absolute hell. :\

Well I obviously wouldn't spend my life savings to buy an island, but if somewhere down the line I end up becoming extremely wealthy, I would definitely consider it. Somewhere I could throw a
SEXY PARTY!
