There's a Bull Market Somewhere... Like In Doomsday Bunkers

CNN Money:

And U.S. companies selling doomsday bunkers are seeing sales skyrocket anywhere from 20% to 1,000%.

Northwest Shelter Systems, which offers shelters ranging in price from $200,000 to $20 million, has seen sales surge 70% since the uprisings in the Middle East, with the Japanese earthquake only spurring further interest. In hard numbers, that's 12 shelters already booked when the company normally sells four shelters per year.

"Sales have gone through the roof, to the point where we are having trouble keeping up," said Northwest Shelter Systems owner Kevin Thompson.

Let's all take a lesson from video games here and keep in mind that in the post-nuclear Fallout scenario, the Vault-Tec vaults were built using soon-to-be-worthless Treasurys and intended as government labs for various experiments including but not limited to mind control and manufacture of genetically-modified soldiers that turned into blood-thirsty mutant freaks. Just sayin.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
