Trigger Happy

I Hope This Is Not The Last Resort

A former US intercontinental nuclear missile base - with a network of underground tunnels and silos - is on sale on eBay for 750,000 pounds. Located in a remote corner of Washington state, the 56-acre site is being marketed as a "gorgeous" property and potential resort. Bari Hotchkiss bought the base 10 years ago from owners who obtained it in the 1970s after the US government deemed the Titan missile system obsolete. "The only limit is imagination. We've always wanted to see it turn into a summer camp or resort camp," he said. The sales pitch describes the buildings as "castles of the 20th century".

Oh boy! High five on that find, David! I'll bet they have clover patches with billions of four leaf clovers, ponds with goldfish that grow to be three feet long. I'd be nervous about having children out there... what if they're born with two heads?! On the upside, they probably have one heckuva security system.

I think I've seen that place on tv, the guy was going to use it for a y2k bunker, or it was one just like it
