This has got to be the wierdest news story I've ever seen.

by Ziks511 / May 31, 2012 11:00 PM PDT

Underground condos in Florida, independently powered and "off the grid', and more, they're all sold out. At a relatively small 1820 square feet they sell for a cool 2 million a piece, and what's more, they're all sold out.

Is this the ultimate in lunacy among the hyper-rich. It's obviously a refuge of some sort. The smallness puzzles me since it wouldn't have cost much more to enlarge the living quarters by 50%.

Anyway, whether you're afraid of WW3 or Zombie invasions you're too late, they're all sold. Will this be the start of a building boom for the family who has everything, including money to burn?

It's already happened...Zombies!

A new or rather yet combo of drugs have entered the drug world and can cause totally weird brain activity or non-working one to turn a person into an uncontrollable Zombie like or actions to include eating another. It can be found in the street name, "bath salts" a bad mix of already known drugs that act upon the brain with negative results or side effects/actions.


Too bad this crime happened in Maimi, maybe they have a heads-up on the rest of the USA or anywhere. Gawd.... -----Willy Happy

Obama's first term isn't even over yet and the zombie apocalypse is already starting.

.... anywhere in Florida and not have it fill up with water. In fact the whole state at it's highest is only 350 feet approximately above sea level, and that's nowhere near Miami.

article. It mentions fear of zombies in Miami but that may have been from some other news piece. I recall hearing about someone buying up abandoned missile silos and converting them to condos but these were not anywhere near Florida.

I just went on what Ziks claimed

Looking at the article now it seems the condos are actually in Colorado. I don't know why Colorado would be worried about Miami zombies.

As slow as they walk, it could be years before reaching the Rockies.

You should be worried about The Maryland zombies

TAMPA, Fla. - First came Miami: the case of a naked man eating most of another man's face. Then Texas: a mother accused of killing her newborn, eating part of his brain and biting off three of his toes. Then Maryland, a college student telling police he killed a man, then ate his heart and part of his brain.

It was different in New Jersey, where a man stabbed himself 50 times and threw bits of his own intestines at police. They pepper-sprayed him, but he was not easily subdued.

That is what some newies were speculating on the TV - that he might have been under the influence of "Bath Salts". He was supposed to have inhuman strength and rage. That is supposed to be some of the effects. Reminds me of PCP.

Right here in Syracuse, four friends were high on PCP and one shot the two while the third got away.

heard about the drugged out lunatic, and following that reference assumed that the story applied to Florida, which is clearly wrong, though not so you would tell from the article.

I agree that it looks more like a gerbil habitat.

There's always somebody trying to take advantage of people by generating unreasoning fear.
