  • An island that even Bill Gates can't afford...

    http://winxp.bink.nu/DesktopModules/ArticleDetail.aspx?ArticleID=778

    Pining to buy an island where the ale is limitless, the beaches are wind-whipped and castles are a dime a dozen? This island, along with an offshore property, is not quite for sale, but at least it has a price tag now, courtesy of the government's Office for National Statistics.

    This kingdom is officially valued at $8.8 trillion, a sum that includes all of its property and buildings, machinery, roads, bridges, planes, trains and automobiles. It also includes all the money deposited in its banks and other financial institutions.

          According to their numbers, if Britain's 58.8 million people decided to cash in on their country's estimated worth, they would each receive the comfortable sum of more than $150,000. (Although they then might be asked to bail out the government, which, the statisticians determined, has a negative net worth of $222 billion, after the national debt and other obligations have been deducted.)

                            Buying the other countries would be a nice alternative to paying the national debt.
