Doomsday shelters line Kansas missile silo
Tucked deep beneath the Kansas prairie, luxury condos are being built into the shaft of an abandoned missile silo to service anxious -- and wealthy -- people preparing for doomsday.
So far, four buyers have plopped down a total of about $7 million for havens to flee to when disaster happens or the end is nigh.

Oh mah gawd! Our worst nightmare, wealthy people turning survivalist!
It's one thing to add a safe-room to your house, and stockpile some canned food, but Scrooge McDuck is going big time!

Quilckly, grab picks and shovels and let's start digging our own shelters!

Quilckly, grab picks and shovels and let's be ready to start burying the entrances!

Better?

There is an aspect to this that the wealthy survivalists may have perhaps overlooked.

The positions of those silos would most certainly have been entered into the target systems of Russian ICBMs...

And why would anybody waste a perfectly good ICBM on a militarily-abandoned missile silo? Unless they were feeling a bit puckish? ;-)

You are assuming that somebody has got round to reprogramming the missile before the terrorists steal it and things turn

We do these things so much better in England:

The silos are not particularly well hidden. We live near the site of the "H-Flight" missile complex, each "flight" consisted of ten multiple-warhead missiles. I can count four of these from the highway as we drive up to the lake.

My late father-in-law was an estimator for the company that painted the interiors of the silos. The military supplied him with detailed maps of their locations.

Presently farmers are using the enclosures to store hay bales.
