The Amazing Story of Sealand

I was looking at The Big Picture yesterday and thought the Maunsell Sea Forts looked interesting so I did some research and discovered that after WWII these abandoned structures became home to pirate radio stations and in 1968 the Principality of Sealand. I'm not going to retell the story of Sealand but it is awesome. Check out the Sealand websiteand the Wikipedia entry for the full story. The Pirate Bay even tried to buy Sealand to avoid prosecution for internet piracy.
