    I'm not always a fan of the comeeks on DK, but this was pretty darned good.

    Of course, blithe Hollingsworth Hound may not be able to sequester himself in his palace if there's flooding, no electricity, no potable water, no food.

    Maybe the smart and wealthy are planning for such a future; I don't know.  Except for insurance and re-insurance companies, who in corporate America cares about this at all?

      a developer over-hauling abandoned missle silos into "post-apocalyptic luxury condos". You can have amenities like a swimming pool, a wine cellar, and more. The silo provides things like water purification, air recycling, and massive stores of food. There seems to be some problem with the power source which, as far as I can tell, seems to be external diesel generators.

      To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.

        No way!  Oh, what am I saying?  Of course "way".  Think of the craziest thing possible to do in the material world, and somebody's doing it.

        Love the idea of living in "luxury" after the apocalypse.  Why, you can sip your fine wine poolside, while laughing at the suckers burning in the desert wasteland around you.  

        Although the un-monocled hordes might take exception to those generators.  Or want them.

          As I pointed out there are some logistic problems with the design. Which means the whole thing might just be a scam to get rich people to part with some moola.

          And that would make me very, very happy.
