Apocalypse Bunker

12 Apr

The thought of an Apocalypse Bunker made from an abandoned missile base is a pretty cool concept. The bunker is being built like an above ground condominium so people can buy these condo-suites for their family and be safe in the event any 2012 cataclysms take place. That is if you have $900,000 to spare.

I am all for disaster preparedness and we have prepared ourselves so we can ride out natural disasters that affect us every year, namely Hurricanes. Spending $900k is unthinkable for me, but after 2012 blows away maybe those investors will decide to rent our there underground suites, I think the place would make a cool vacation getaway, if only for the fact that it will be a unique place.

Hmmmm, December 21, 2012. There is a lot to be said for this coming event, and there are just as many scenarios and theories. I like being upbeat, so I happen to think that we will wake up on December 22, 2012 and find that we have grown in a spiritual way and start to be kinder to one another and our planet. Imagine an entire world living in harmony with one another. Now THAT would be worth waking up to.

Here is the original short article

Larry Hall believes in preparing for scenarios that the Man would have you believe are fictional—Mayan disaster prophecies, pole shifts, alien invasions, that sort of thing. So the 54-year-old software engineer shelled out $250,000 for a decommissioned Atlas F Missile Base in Kansas. “I thought, wow, I can transform it into an ultrasafe, energy-efficient fortress,” Hall says. Then he figured that other people might also sleep better 200 feet underground within epoxy-hardened concrete walls. And with a custom retrofit featuring GE Monogram stainless-steel appliances and Kohler fixtures, they could also eat (and flush) in style. So Hall announced a “condo suite package”—starting at $900,000—that includes a five-year food supply (think hydroponics and aquaculture) and “simulated view windows” with light levels calibrated to the time of day to keep you from going crazy. Hall says his silo will have a military-grade security system and electricity powered by geothermal energy and wind turbines, as well as a theater, workout area, and pool with a waterfall. Not a bad place to wait out the apocalypse. Hall is still building this dream silo, but he’s already getting applicants. “When they call me up,” he says, “they’re like, you had me at MISSILE BASE!” With three out of seven floors already spoken for, you’d better get your bid in. You’d hate to be stuck in a moving van when the aliens touch down.

    This is really cool, but I don’t know that I would want to survive the apocolypse. I’m secure in my faith, and believe I would be going to a better place, and couldn’t imagine surviving without my loved ones.
    If they were really concerned about the human race, they would hold a lottery for the condos with people from all over the world, different races, cultures, and socioeconomic status. The way they’re doing it now, humankind is destined to be spoiled, entitled, and probably a-hole-ish.
    Great post.

    If I had $900,000, I would be spending it on something far more than a bunker. Probably a modest house in London such are the crazy prices floating around here 😉

    I would love to think that we would grow spiritually in the coming two years. But I predict that on 22nd December 2012, we in London will be waking up to a massive hangover after a Friday night on the tile.s Such is the ‘spirituality’ we Londoners believe in.

    Sigh…

    Kudos to the guy who came up with this brilliant idea for the rich and/or famous; now he will also become rich and famous. Quite a novel idea and use of existing structure. As for the 2012 or other prophecies, I will believe them when I see them. I think the earth and its inhabitants will thrive for many more milleniums.
