Off Topic: Become a Lord or Lady for just $49.

This has nothing to do with 3D, but the thought of being nobility has come across everyones mind. So, contact the country of Sealand and become a Lord or Lady!

Sealand is a "micronation" located off the coast of England. Sealand began to defend England against German air raids. These sea forts housed enough troops to man and maintain artillery designed to shoot down German aircraft and missiles. They were situated along the east coast of England on the edge of the English territorial waters. After the war, it was taken over by a radio pirate, and is claimed to be a real nation, although not really recognized by much of anyone.



We discovered Sealand because of the opportunities to host servers there; the tiny country has virtually no laws. Wikileaks is claimed to be moving its servers there sometime this year. Sealand is also supposed to be starting a gambling and casino style website soon.

The best part of Sealand is the ability to send them (approximately) $49, and get a piece of paper the grants you to be a real Lord or Lady in return. For a few dollars more, you can have it framed and signed by Prince Michael... whoever that is. Other options include becoming a Baron or Baroness; or if you want to go all out, you can become a Count or Countess for just over $300. All you have to do is go to Sealand's official website, here, and input some basic information!
