Voiceofreason01: WhyteRaven74: Google got a patent for a floating data center a few years back. I'd wager dollars to donuts that's what this is.

WTF is wrong with the patent office that something like that is patentable?

Yeah, allowing someone to patent a giant machine that's never been made before and which presents all sorts of unforeseen challenges? What's next, granting a patent on a medicine or new metal alloy? Hmmph!

I can't get on an airplane without being searched but someone can build a huge facility down at the dock without disclosing what it is? I'm missing something somewhere. What has a greater potential for endangering mankind, me with a ball point pen or a mysterious floating barge.
