Ruling from a boat definitely appeals to my dark side. :cheers:
Plenty of room on one of these, maybe if we pooled our dosh we could pick up a used one?

Well the Brits have got a brand new one without any planes. They might do a swap.

The new aircraft carrier has plenty of planes ready to go. It isn't as simple as building a carrier and putting planes on it though.

So long as WW3 doesn't break out planes can wait, it's all a vanity project until the last minute when big ships sink etc...make off that what you will?
What will the world be like after its ruler is removed?

I wouldn't want the job. I am not at all adept at dealing with those who Trump refers to as "Killers." The big bankers, the businessmen, the successful politicians around the world. These guys are the guys who, metaphorically, will fleece you of your money at the poker table in 10 minutes.

To succeed as a world leader, one must be steeped in a world of hard bargaining and winner-take-all business and politics, with a dose of organized crime syndicates and crooked politicians thrown into the mix. You need balls of steel, and a rather sociopathic demeanor. You need to know how to push people's buttons, apply pressure, and as someone I used to know once said, "swat flies with sledgehammers, and fight fire with gasoline." If someone opposes you, you take the fight to then, bring it to their doorstep, find what they value most and place it risk.

I can't do that.
You're smart enough to know you're supposed to say that, and arrogant enough to think you'd get away with it. You're a natural! I think we've found the political face for The World Leaders of Rationalia. I nominate 42 for President! :biggrin:
A person who does not want the job of president is the beast choice. I second the motion.

Or at least make Forty Two a moderator!
