*opening the mail at the Coast Guard*

Yup, another application for recreation use..."Me and my bras would like to turn this free lighthouse into the world's first fully functional two-story sex bong..."

No thanks, got three already.

I dream of living in a lighthouse, baby
Every single day
I dream of living in a lighthouse
The white one by the bay
So if you want to make my dreams come true
You'll be a lighthouse keeper too
 
2013-05-21 06:01:37 PM
Yes, but only if I can do my own IRL re-enactments of these:

I don't think anything good has ever come of living in a lighthouse in popular media, so if it went onto the auction block, I'd buy it and live there so that every day is a combination of excitement and terror.

Still... with a little work that could make a pretty biatchin' bachelor pad, pirate-infested-Fog aside.

Came here to say, "of course they're free, there are infinite identical lighthouses..." but yours was better and you beat me to it. The day is yours.

I'll take it with the intent of turning it into another Boleskine House. Hopefully lake monster sightings will follow. I get a free lighthouse and the state gets a boost in tourism.

Does it come with access to the city of Columbia?

Too much red tape to keep up with on all of the repairs and maintenance and such. What I'm really looking for is an old catholic church for sale with its own cemetary. So many good places to have sex, the altar, the cemetary, inside the crypts. Oh my that would be fun.

You could just convert to Catholicism. Then you can have weird sex in the church without paying property taxes.

I thought 'Mercan lighthouses were black and white.

It's the Canadian lighthouses which are red and white...

Maybe these guys could use it:

Yeah but then you'd have to do it with the altar boys...

I can only imagine how cold that place gets with the wind coming across the lake in the dead of winter, actually I can't imagine, it must be insanely cold out there on the lake.
 
2013-05-21 07:18:34 PM
I would live in it and sing songs from Pete's Dragon all day.

I'm thinking that the fog horn sounding every 30 seconds would be... annoying. Presumably only when reduced visibility, which could be a lot of the time.
 
2013-05-21 07:56:10 PM
Does it come with ghosts, or do you have supply your own?

Think of the awesome Halloween haunted house you could do there...

Well it fit the rectum of Edmond Fitzgerald?

"That's life for you," said McDunn. "Someone always waiting for someone who never comes home. Always someone loving some thing more than that thing loves them. And after a while you want to destroy whatever that thing is, so it can't hurt you no more."

Free things often come with a catch.  In this case:
its fog signal sounds for three seconds twice a minute as needed.

"Hey this lighthouse doesn't have any meyurcureee in it, does it?"
 
2013-05-21 08:42:42 PM
I'll take it. Hope they don't mind when I replace the light with a strobing black light every time I throw a Fark party.

The thumping stereo will be heard in Canada.

Probably would be a biatch to keep maintained.

It's out at the end of a breakwater made of big rocks, so you can't drive a car up to the front door.  You'll either have to put all your stuff in a boat to get it out there or carry it on foot 1/3 of a mile along the breakwater.

I have this feeling that "as needed" is decided by some wet behind the ears night shift government lackey in Washington, DC who has a button he pushes whenever the mood strikes him.  He has no idea what it does, but at 3 or 4 in the morning, idling away in his cube, he hits the button 50 times, wondering why the hell it's on his desk.

What's wrong with this country? Can't a man surf the internet without being offered a lighthouse?
 
2013-05-21 09:07:36 PM
Huh. Funny coincidence, I've been thinking about having a lighthouse inspired home close to the water. No place closer to water than in the water itself.
 
2013-05-21 09:18:36 PM
That lighthouse sounds like the direct OPPOSITE of free. Any chumps want to pay tons of money to upkeep this eyesore?

I don't know.  You would probably have bikers charging in there all the time to have shoot outs with the cops.

Unfortunately, it's on a fresh water body, so you can't use the firehose to kill Triffids.
 
2013-05-21 09:46:17 PM
Looks like a lot of work. I'll just stick with the blue canary in the outlet by the light switch.

I would imagine the lighthouse is no longer operating, so that really is a non-issue.  I'ld have fun with the light doing stuff like the bat signal, loch ness monster, WWII submarine and maybe a giant hand at the ships.  You know the absolute necessities of owning a light house.
