Fascinating and distressing

I found this (rather funny) article on NPR about a futuristic survival community and it’s efforts to market and create a network (expensive network) of communal survival shelters for whatever impending doom you may be afraid of.

On the one hand, rather cool in a sci-fi futuristic kind of way I suppose… Yet I also feel deeply deeply saddened that the people who invest their time, talent, money and efforts on projects like these could be using that same energy to actively make the world a better, safer, healthier and happier place.

Gordon’s comment on the sleek and modern design of the proposed shelter’s reminded me that this is a far cry from their one actually built facility…(Local News footage, here)

  1. What kind of apocalypse gives you three days notice, anyway?

    It looks like an Ikea showroom. Which is my way of saying that I really like it. 🙂

So what do you think?! Opinions? Ideas? Beuller... Bueller?!
