#2 The Times is a Deep State propaganda tool. If nothing else, Comey's leaking classified data clearly illustrated that.

#6 Consider the HA contributor.



Truth be told, if I were playing one of them world games, and the blurb came up, "Would you like to make this trade?" Yes, yes I would. Especially after this last event "Hurricane Strikes Your Territory! Would you like to pay for repairs?"
-> Yes
(doom music)
"Repairs Unsuccessful! Would you like to try again for 2x cost?"

#8 It would bankrupt Denmark.

Probably. Just look at what being Puerto Rico has done to Puerto Rico! But on the plus side, Denmark would get a lot of domestic help.

#9 There is a good chance Puerto Rico's entire population would migrate to NY before the transfer. Could work out well for Denmark.

#10 What if we towed the entire island north under the cover of darkness? Being careful not to tip it over, of course.

#11 The absurdity of buying Greenland is not the idea of buying it but trying to buy something that is not for sale and then reacting childish if told so.

#12 SteveS - might be able to (carefully) tow Guam, but I think PR is attached.
