All those little islands you can barely see on the map in the middle of nowhere in the Pacific

freak me out.

How would you like to be stuck there and the water start to rise.

Look up the Maldives - it's already beginning to happen there.

Look up "Ball's Pyramid"--it's a giant tall pointy crag sticking up out of the ocean in the Southern hemisphere hundreds of miles from Australia. It will really freak you out.

Ball's Pyramid.

Exactly what i mean R3. what if you were stuck on that thing.

Well, this will really freak you out then, r4. This is the native fauna of Ball's Pyramid--an extremely rare stick insect that is 6" long, and only found there.

be warned.

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.

You'd die of starvation before being drowned, R4.

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.

by Anonymousreply 901/26/2013

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?

Actually, it's a narceous layer of permacum formed during David Barton's failed expansion into the hotel and resort sector.

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