I get they are trying to say that these metals are so abundant that we could consider the supply to be limitless, but "semi-infinite" is such a weird way to say that.

Do you think taking rare-earth elements from the sea floor is cultural appropriation of the sea?

If I pretend to be an SJW in a thread is that cultural appropriation of SJWs?

If that's what you're trying to do, you are totally failing.

Sorry, I'll try to stay on topic. If the Japanese mine these minerals does that increase or decrease entropy?

It will increase entropy. Thanks.

in the golden age the exchange rate was so low that a 4000¥ kit would cost like $32, now a 4000¥ kit is like $39.50. sad!

Even so you should start stockpiling them now. After the US invades a certain island in the Pacific to get at dem sweet sweet minerals the ghawtdayhum ghundam model kits will increase in value exponentially.

Me or the author of the article? My headline say "practically infinite", which is accurate. We're talking about so many RE minerals we couldn't use them all in a thousand years.

OK ur 4given and yes Japan has NOT found all that much that wood last thousands of years although reading that propaganda leads one to think so

Deal is until recently there was no reason to spend money to develop other sources which do exist world wide - Now there is - Also mining at such depths compared to all that has been found in past in regular mines from California to Australia - Alas China has the market currently and soon others will be motivated to dig dig dig If there is money to be made they will indeed DIG

Any way good job coming up with relevant technology stuff -Last report I heard was via NPR from Market Watch report

Exactly, bro. Buy a couple square feet here and there, dig some holes, then drop telephone poles down. Those poles will serve as the foundation for whatever you're building. Home, shed, garage, whatever. The government HATES it. That's why you'll see raised homes occasionally on oceanfront property. It's way cheaper to buy a square foot here and there than it is to buy thousands of square feet at once, especially ocean feet. Feet be expensive yo.

Not expensive if it's ocean you do not own nor does anyone else Except while you do it it's in dispute yet once built no one has the guts to get to close or land a chopper on that runway that is now built. Lots of pics of what is there NOW

This one has a full military base with runways - Now IF they made a resort with Rhum drinks and even some quality Chinese eats like perhaps a Panda Franchise

And what's the deal with rare earths? They're not rare at all! They should be called common earth elements!
