I was going to post this on the "good music thread" - but someone might object.

You can´t really object to another persons idea of good music although you can have a different taste. Your taste was poor but at least you were honest and all that.  ;)

The proposal of the Dolt in Office to buy Greenland might fit here. The price of the piece of real estate should be estimated though.
The 2,850,000 cubic kilometers of frozen mineral water translates to about 3,8*10^15€, not counting the expense invested in freezing the stuff. This may be estimated by the energy requirement to freeze 20 degree regular water. Then there are the fishes the value of which could be estimated by multiplying a normal 3* restaurant meal by 8, as one fish is split to so many pieces. I don't know what a valid price for a live polar bear is, but this is a minor expense compared to fish. Then there are the few rivers that can be harnessed for energy, so their lifetimes entire potential energy should also be compensated.

Well you get the idea.

Indeed.  Now we need to include a per-person value of the roughly 55,000 human inhabitants...

Instead of buying Greenland, the USA should sell its president. Most likely only negative bids though.

“There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late

Civilisation is not going to collapse from a BOE. And I for one do not believe that the current trend towards higher temperature<clip>
Well if we lose 'civil' from civilisation we are left with ilisation, add just an 'l' and were in ill-isation. Sorry not my native language so wordplays are on this level quite often.

Indeed, Denmark's price for the sale of Greenland should include such uses of the inhabitants.  Trump would surely like to harvest all these bodies for maximum sale value.  One reference is relevant here:
This Is How Much Your Body Is Worth
https://www.sciencealert.com/this-is-how-much-your-body-is-worth

So $650,000 per harvested body times 55k inhabitants means that the human purchase component of a sale of Greenland would be roughly $36 billion.

This seems a "Modest Proposal" indeed.
