This is the e-mail I sent John on 9 August.
I just got a great idea...
Well, I thought it was great...

Okay, so I'm on Skype with Katie the Ningmaster and a few others. I asked one of them who'd just entered the chat how they were and he said "I'm well. Also hungry. How are you?" And I said "I'm hungry and well, too. Let's meet up at IHOP, cha?"

And then we started wishing that we lived closer together so we could do stuff like that. Someone said we should all move to Chicago and call it Nerdfighter Town. That's great and all, but because you're writing a book on deserted islands... all the Nerdfighters should pitch together money so we can buy a deserted island and then you could use it for research and it could be named Nerdfighteria and then we could all live there and it would be made of awesome... I'm like extremely excited about this. Hence the run-on sentence. Let me know what you think!

Darting Fervently Towards [a] Better Area,
MEEG-dah-lah veh-RED

C'mon Nerdfighters. How bloody cool would that be if we actually did that? I know it'd take time and effort. Some of us might even die out before it comes real. But I'm incredibly enthusiastic that it can happen. If you believe it can happen, then it can. What do you say? Want to make it real? Yeah? No? Thoughts?

Think of it... What started as a yearlong project between brothers turns into a web sensation, turns into a worldwide community, turns into an actual place you can visit.

Please don't be mean to me... I only had a dream.

PS- I'm looking for private islands for sale, lovies.

NERDFIGHTERIA! A land of made up of great awesomness. Awesome fills the pores of the citizens. Their grasp of the world allows the Island Country to flourish. Nerds reign surpreme, as it sould be. All is well. Yeti's are a beautiful elusive spe...cies. Puppies are pirates. John Green is our revered writer. Hank Green our wonderous musical talent. Who can say no to Nerdfighteria?

I take that as another enthusiastic yes, m'dear.
Any others?
You do? You're just saying that because you're the one I wanted to meet at IHOP. ;)
I was about to say "but we've already got a constitution" but no... America has one, but not all of us are from America.

I second your thought.

I think we need to go ahead and set up a fund as well. It's going to take a while, because not everyone can donate $100 straight away. And it isn't guaranteed that everyone will donate... so... Yeah.
Have you seen John's latest video ;)
I have! I swear he said it because of my e-mail, which is why I felt okay posting my e-mail here... I feel like John mentioning that we have enough Nerdfighters to create our Nerdfighteria means that he was giving me the nod to share my idea.

I've already got two islands in mind. :)
Wouldn't it be more practical to just buy Florida, and then blow it off the North American continent to form an island? More bang for your buck... hehe.
haha Bang, blow it off... I get it! :)

We could do that. How much is Florida running for these days? I'll compare prices.

Also, blowing it off might not work so well. I live in Georgia, and have friends all over the state. I wouldn't want those near the GA-FL border to become burnt or dead.
Hmmm... true. We'll probably need a big chainsaw then.
Hmm... That and people with an abundance of upper body strength... and axes, too.

Wait a tic... how do we measure where Florida ends and the ocean floor begins?

Won't we have to also chop underneath?

How will we know when we've gone far enough down?

These are some serious questions, mate. -ponders-

I think purchasing an island might be easier on my sanity.
New plan! We gather Nerdfighters' empty plastic bottles for the next few years, then lash them together, set it afloat in the Atlantic Ocean, pour dirt on top via helicopter, plant seeds, introduce animals, and BAM! We have a tropical island!
AAAH! Love it! This idea wins. :)
