If you're looking for a 15,000-square-foot luxury home that's built 26 feet underground so it can survive a nuclear attack, and you have a spare $1.7 million, we've got just the place for you! Built in 1978 by a wealthy businessman who was convinced the Reds were going to push the button down, this Las Vegas house has two bedrooms (and one extra in a "guest house"), a huge front room suitable for go-cart racing, a marble tub worthy of Liberace, and acres of pink tile. Oh, and there's another two-bedroom house up on the surface, too. Casa Apocalypse is in what's essentially a super-sized basement with green carpet "grass" and fake trees, as well as a swimming pool, hot tubs, and a wraparound mural "landscape." You could curl up on the couch, warm up some MRE's, and watch

Rick and his gang need to discover this place in the final episode of &quot;Walking Dead.&quot;
I love the smell of vodka in the morning, it smells like victory
Hey, you&#039;re talking about the decade in which I graduated from high school, earned a college degree and got married.
So... point taken.
I had the same thought. Love that movie.
It has a dance floor so you can play It&#039;s The End Of The World in an endless loop while you get down.
Isn&#039;t living in Las Vegas already living in the Apocalypse? A small city based upon excess consumption, greed, and exploitation? Oh, wail. That&#039;s Washington, DC.
Yes, I immediately pictured Christopher Walken wandering around this place.

Reading Bradbury always makes me feel better.
I will never forget the sliced human cadaver on display in, if memory serves me, a staircase. Freaked me out for a month of Sundays. But the uboat &amp; the train were way cool.
Because of course those air conditioning units would be fully functional after a nuclear holocaust. Right.
I&#039;d sooner be fried in a blinding flash of megadeath than have to wake up every morning on the set of The Partridge Family.
Titan Missile Silo or GTFO!
