I find these kinds of things fascinating. That there are people so certain that doomsday (of whatever flavor) is coming soon that they will spend an enormous amount of money to build/buy these things. Don't get me wrong; I love zombie & apocalypse stories, but I also recognize that in any end-of-civilization scenario, I'm dead within 3 months tops.

Hardened Structures

I was thinking more along the lines of a storm shelter, like our basement, or those people that will come in and turn a walk in closet into a hardened room that will withstand 200mph wind. There are a lot of paranoid people out there and a lot of them have money. There is a new reality tv show on about people that think the end of the world is coming soon and are making preparations like stockpiling food, but this is extreme. Although, if I was a drug cartel member, I just might want an underground stocked bunker, if for nothing else, I could stash my mistress there, for when it hits the fan, and leave my wife up above.

See, I can understand the need for storm cellars, or even safe rooms. It's the people who are just so paranoid that civilization is going to utterly collapse in 2012 that baffle me. I mean, I know that there is always a certain percentage of the population that's itching for the world to end, but that doesn't make it any easier to understand the extents to which they'll go.
