Crazy Idea ... Permanent man-made "island" at 0 lat. 0 long? (or 0, 180?)
So .... "Millennium Island" was renamed for 2000 New Years because it was the FIRST bit of land (because of strange International Date Line) to see the sunrise of the new Millennium ...
Evidently a HUGE fight between several islands about who got to claim that they were the first place of a new year. LOTS of very rich tourists travel to various islands to get to celebrate the new year first.
So ... can you imagine someone creating some luxury floating resort and locating at "significant" locations like 0,0 which is just a bit off the coast of Ghana Africa, or at 180,0 that is in the Pacific near Fiji.
