Ball's Pyramid is only 12 miles away from the lush and populated Lord Howe Island, though... You could be rescued pretty easily.
Bouvet Island, however, is the most remote island in the world. The closest inhabited location is 1,400 miles away in South Africa, but even Antarctica is 900 miles away.
I don't get how people live in Hawaii. It's a gorgeous place but when you look on a map there is nothing around it, NOTHING. What if something horrible happened, there's nowhere to go.
r8, that's probably why it's SAFER to be there if something terrible happened.
R9, I meant if something terrible happened specifically to Hawaii, not to the world in general.
Don't get on a boat with a guy named Gilligan
As our 50st State, the government would mobilize to get people off the island. There is an Air Force Base, I think Navy too?
I'd rather be there than any of the others mentioned. Is that snow on Bouvet?

I read that the USS Arizona is stationed there. Everyone can hop on that and sail to safety.
