When the going gets tough, the tough spend $3 million on a converted underground missile silo disaster condo
American ingenuity never ceases to amaze. Especially when disaster is in the air. A company called Logic Integration Inc., is banking on a near-future disaster to sell people full- and half-floor condos in what were formally Midwest missile silos.
Yes, there’s no need to seek safety in a cellar or boring old bomb shelter when you can spend up to $3 million for a chance to live like kings and queens underground should some sort of life-altering catastrophe strike the earth.

I’m not making this up. Here’s a video about it.
These condos are located in
“We have three contingency plans in place to ensure that you have passage to the facility in the case of any emergency. These plans will be discussed with potential buyers only.”
If the earth is being engulfed by flames and you live more than a hundred or so yards away from the silo entrance, they better have more than three plans, I know that much.
And what’s this business about “4 hotel rooms”? What kind of people are going to be trying to book a hotel room during a worldwide nuclear apocalypse?
GUEST: Hi, I need a room for me and the wife for four-point-five years.
DESK CLERK: Okay, sir . . .
GUEST: Or at least till the apples start growing again.
DESK CLERK: Certainly, sir, but where’s your wife?
(GUEST points to the floor next to him, where there is a head and part of a torso wiggling around.)
DESK CLERK: Okay, a room for one and a half. Do you want smoking or non-smoking?
GUEST: Non-smoking. We smoked enough on the way here since there were only three contingency plans. Also my wife’s going to need a step-stool to get in the tub.
DESK CLERK: No problem, I’ll have one of the maids bring one right up.
GUEST: You have maids?
DESK CLERK: We have them shipped in. If they survive the trip, we put them to work. If they don’t, to hell with them.
