For these luxury flats, deep below the Kansas prairie in the shaft of an abandoned missile silo, are meant to withstand everything from economic collapse and solar flares to terrorist attacks and pandemics.

Pretty shitty state of affairs when the only place to live, is like a rat underground. Also living in a circular building would drive me nuts. Not to mention the people.chuckle.gif

iagree.gif P but I wouldn't turn one down, awesome sparking pot for shtf. There's a big closet there too for storage. And a pool/rec room? How cool is that?

I rather live it out above ground. As I'm sure you do too. Just living in an underground bunker is not living. If we're talking radioactive doom scenario, then yes, kit it out with storage for hydro/aqua ponic food supply and I'd be there.

I think I might get a bit claustrophobic eventually, but I guess I take that over dead. Maybe.

I'm wondering about this though:

The warm living room features a fireplace - all the better to curl up by if the world outside is going down in flames

A fireplace? 13.gif If that's a real fireplace the bunker it's not totally sealed off from the outside world, in fact the article didn't mention air and ventilation at all!

That means it's no good for radioactive fallout or airborne viruses. damned.gif

Can you imagine being locked underground with a bunch of strangers when things went ape-shït? aaah2.gif

It's not like we could afford them. The people living in them are of the same ilk as those that would cause them to have to live in them in the first place.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

And I hope they also thought of some not so elaborate security in case a solar flare fries their security cams and hi-tech setup coffeetime.gif


Quote:The top floor and an outside building above it will be for elaborate security.

The condo elevator will only operate if a person's fingerprint matches its system, Hall said. Cameras will monitor a barbed-wire topped fence and give plenty of warning of possible intruders.

Yeah I think living through the aftermath of some nuclear event is pretty depressing scenario.

I had a dream once where nukes dropped not far from where I was standing (which thankfully was the entrance to an underground granite mall). I had to make the split second decision if I want to live through this or not. I chose to hide out in that mall, ended up in a bank several stories below ground with a bunch of bank robbers who had just emptied the safe.

I bet a real life scenario would be a hell of a lot less funny.
