Zombie-Proof Condos In Kansas Sold Out

Looking for a condo that will survive disasters both natural and unnatural (i.e., the Zombie Apocalypse)? So are a lot of other people, apparently, as we recently caught wind from CNET that the trendy flats on offer at Survival Condo — a converted nuclear ballistic missile silo in Kansas — have already sold out.

Perhaps this had something to do with Mother Nature Network rating this development as one of the “best U.S. places to survive the apocalypse“? We’re not sure, but with plentiful supplies of food, air and water, the idea is that you can not only wait out Armageddon underground, but wait it out in style. That’s right: your $2 million, 1,820-square-foot condo-in-the-ground will not only grant you access to your own off-grid electricity (provided via solar panels and wind turbines) and epoxy-hardened walls (proof against nuclear attack), but stainless steel GE appliances, Kohler bath fixtures and a Jacuzzi, not mention a full-size pool, spa, fitness room, library and movie theater (showing zombie movies, we hope).

Come hell or high water — or both — you’ll dine on a diet of organic produce and homegrown fish fresh from the development’s high-tech hydroponic and aquaculture center. And if the unwashed (zombified) masses should beat at the door, pitchforks in hand, never fear. Survival Condo’s owner, Larry Hall — a former software engineer — promises his condo-silo will have a military-grade security system equipped with both lethal and nonlethal defense capabilities (!).

Why did Hall want to turn this 174-foot-deep hole into condos? “To have a safe place for the increasing number of threats that are occurring,” Hall told Mother Nature Network, going on to spell out the possible threats such as global climate change, terrorism, economic collapse, the solar cycle (and possible loss of the power grid), pandemics, civil unrest and food shortages. Yikes!

    Ummm.  What happens when the Zombies destroy, unplug and remove the solar panels?  You go outside to fix them?

    Larry….too much time sitting in front of a computer has given you dillusions of grandeur. You are a fail to the human race.
