Very extremely sensitive

I ran across a very practical article in Forbes about the ups and downs of owning your own private island. It will come in handy.

Sure it's cheaper, but who'd want a private island in CANADA?? I mean, for 150,000 Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers I want a little more bang for my buck.

Exactly. If you check out the slideshow in the sidebar of the article, you can see there is a $49 million island for sale.

A 'quality' island for $100,000?

What's considered subpar, in the private island scene?
A sandbar?

John and I once had our own private island, BTW... with a kick-ass name.

Which was..?

Kid Island!

It was in a prime location... none of this Canadian crap.

But it probably wouldn't be rated as quality, since it was lost in a hurricane.

Well, keep in mind, with the term "kick-ass" you have to know that we were 5 years old when we named it.

So our grandparents had a house in the Cayman Islands, and about ten feet off the shore in front of their house was a chunk of rock that mysteriously had two big sticks coming out of it, perfectly parallel, perfectly straight up-and-down.

Now, you must understand that by "big chunk of rock" I mean it was about 2 feet by 18 inches -- big enough for two kids to stand there holding on to the the sticks

So what was the name of this mysterious formation? Kid Island, of course.

Later in the 1980s, Kid Island was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo.
