Waiting for the End of the World...

This is the most bizarre thing I've seen in a long time...so I just had to post it...

A wealthy financier, named Girard B Henderson, was one of the last true believers in surviving nuclear war by going underground. His underground 1978 house, beneath a normal two-story suburban house in Las Vegas, is one of the last relics of the Cold War.

From Metropolis Magazine..."This 16,000-square-foot bomb shelter—complete with ranch house, guesthouse, pool, yard, and barbecue—may be that era’s most surreal expression."

you can see the eerie pictures below...




It's like a creepy, subterranean Brady Bunch house and I am fascinated! The house can still be rented for corporate events and parties...if you're interested. :)

Um...whoa. That's creepy, but in a weirdly fun way.
