If only all days could be blessed with this sort of outlandish wimsy.
Four years ago The Pirate Bay attempted to buy the mirconation of Sealand to get away from copyright laws that were bringing them down.
Although it didn’t work, it did get the Pirate community dreaming. And dreaming they’ve done as recently the Pirate Paries International started cooking up an idea to take a torrent site into space.

A few days ago we were tipped off about a rather intriguing discussion that’s currently taking place on the the Pirate Parties International (PPI) mailing list. Apparently, the Pirates have big plans to launch a file-sharing site (torrent, we assume) into space…

So what are these Pirates up to?
The idea is to get away from current ‘restricted’ hosting facilities where the law of the land applies. Initially, a balloon was opted for as the ideal vessel, but others quickly suggested that an actual satellite would be a more durable solution. To fund the project, crowd-sourcing platforms like Kickstarter were mentioned. (More here)
