Now all your base really do belong to us.
2001-10-03 10:26:14 AM  
I want this so bad.....

Sucks being poor :(
2001-10-03 10:28:49 AM  
This is almost as cool as Tommy Lee's home.
2001-10-03 10:30:09 AM  
I'd like one to go
2001-10-03 10:31:17 AM  
Kick ass!

Gumpus, I hear you. Preach on brother.

But then you would have to move to Wamego, Kansas
2001-10-03 10:33:59 AM  
That place sux...... for a base it has practically no SQF at all.. 4000 usally they have more like 10,000SQF
2001-10-03 10:36:10 AM  
Does anybody know of a good website that lists the locations and data about these former missle bases? I know there were a few around here (Cincinnati), but I'm not sure where exactly.
2001-10-03 10:36:52 AM  
Might be a nice place for a party...
2001-10-03 10:37:52 AM  
Read the article: 16.000 sq.ft. floor space, 4.000 refurbished as living space.
2001-10-03 10:39:51 AM  
I say a bunch of farkers get together and buy this thing. With all of that space, there'd be a good amount of living room for everyone.

Hell I say that would be a great place for the capital of Farkistan. Get a satellite internet link and you're all set :)
2001-10-03 10:41:30 AM  
Here's a link for more info.
2001-10-03 10:41:37 AM  
it'd be perfect for an audio studio / music venue...if it were in a major city

still, i'd buy if i had so much money my ass was bleeding
2001-10-03 10:43:15 AM  
Think of the orgies you could host there.
2001-10-03 10:45:27 AM  

still, i'd buy IT if i had so much money THAT my ass was bleeding

*weird enough statement without the missing words*
2001-10-03 10:46:21 AM  
Dalai Lama:

Money makes your ass bleed? Where do you keep your wallet?
2001-10-03 10:48:58 AM  
I farked that up.
2001-10-03 10:56:10 AM  
Finally, a suitable location for Farkistan
2001-10-03 11:01:25 AM  
Wait.. doesn't ebay charge a commission to post an auction? How much are they pulling down on this?

Also, I think we should all get some money together, and beat that bid of $1.5 million. For my part, I will donate a shiny American nickel, unmatched in its resilience and worth.
2001-10-03 11:02:14 AM  
looks like a 'do-er-upper'
2001-10-03 11:04:21 AM  
that would make the best bachelor pad :) hehe come and see my missile :)
2001-10-03 11:10:19 AM  
Anyone have $2,000,000.00 that I can borrow?
2001-10-03 11:16:11 AM  
I'm going to do the lottery this weekend. Anyone on this page will get an invite to my base-warming party.
2001-10-03 11:19:54 AM  
Oh btw, how many missiles does it come with ?
2001-10-03 11:21:29 AM  
redbull - you'll have to count on tonights cos the bids close in 2 days...

is it bring a bottle? can i bring the rest of my stuff too??
2001-10-03 11:24:08 AM  
I think I read about this particular one. Previous owner used it as a giant LSD lab until the feds shut him down. Don't lick the counter tops!
2001-10-03 11:28:34 AM  
Drew: I propose starting a fund so that all Farkers can send money to purchase this. We should have a Fark Compound!!
2001-10-03 11:42:30 AM  
WIth the biological and chenical proteciton, this would be GREAT during these troubled times.

Or make your money back by holding a rave and call it "All your Bass are belong to Us".
2001-10-03 11:49:29 AM  

Finally a bathroom for my pet elephant.
2001-10-03 11:57:19 AM  
What's wrong with Wamego, KS? It's just north of Manhattan, KS, K-State's college town... you could have a rokkin party with hot college co-eds? With 16,000 sq ft, you could invite half the university (at least the good-looking half with boobies!)
2001-10-03 11:59:20 AM  
I must say, there is always someone on here that has nothing to good to say. Thebigsleep: Try reading it again, it says 16000 sqf. Def. a nice little setup. I think it would be cool.
2001-10-03 12:05:29 PM  
I think I read about this particular one. Previous owner used it as a giant LSD lab until the feds shut him down. Don't lick the counter tops!

Excellent place for a party then...
2001-10-03 12:18:01 PM  
Yep, it looks like this one was busted by the Feds after someone OD'd in the missile base. The found enough LSD to make 60 million doses. Articles here and here.
2001-10-03 12:32:28 PM  
and the best part is that one can rest assured the russians and the chinese still have their missiles pointed a ya....

talk about important! (now their's a sale's pitch for ya!)

*the ill*
2001-10-03 12:40:56 PM  
Frank_Lee_Mental it's just a theory, but I think once you have a rediculously large amount of money, your ass beings bleeding (for a medically unknown reason) and doesn't stop.

at least, it makes me feel better about not having any money at all...knowing the guy driving the porche also happens to have an ass that won't stop bleeding.
2001-10-03 12:43:22 PM  
Gotta suck to live there and some ring and runs you all the time
2001-10-03 01:03:24 PM  
"Kids, where's your father?"
"He's playing with the battery banks mommy."
"That's nice dear. Now stay inside and play. You don't want your wealthy little asses to bleed, do you?"
2001-10-03 01:42:03 PM  
how kick ass would it be to set up a bungie drop rope in the missile silo!
2001-10-03 01:48:47 PM  
I like the part where is says "functional". What functions are they talking about? Surely not launch control functions. Perhaps we could buy it then sue for false advertising.
2001-10-03 01:52:53 PM  
Busta Gonad -
I think this particular silo is a horizontal one rather than a vertical one... the missile bay cover would open and the missile moved into a vertical position and then fired. The geological makeup of Kansas is mainly a thick layer of Limestone and other hard materials that would make excavating a vertical silo extremely difficult and expensive. I saw another silo like this for sale around Topeka, and it had a horizontal missle bay, but the really kewl part was that the entire roof on the missile bay could be opened like a giant horizontal garage door.
2001-10-03 02:40:06 PM  
Someone just gave me some interesting info on this auction. This silo is not a silo, it doesn't have launch tube(s), it has launch bays. But moving right along...

This site was actually home to a drug production facility. It was confiscated after the owners were caught producing POUNDS of acid. Definately a more enjoyable form of chemical warfare.
2001-10-03 02:41:40 PM  
Hmmm, it appears I am responsible for shipping...
2001-10-03 02:46:43 PM  
We'd need something to get around in in Farkistan... I'd donate my car, my prized posession: My big-block Chevy Nova. Brute power and speed. Hey, who said fast was always beautiful?
2001-10-03 02:49:31 PM  
It's a tad hard on gas, though, and it will take about 119 octane to avoid detonation. That's the downside of hi-compression. :-(
2001-10-03 03:22:01 PM  
Heh. I'm in Manhattan, KS. And that's about 15-20min away from Wamego. Anybody want to loan me some cash? It'll be a Farker's Only kinda place, I promise! Just think, everybody getting drunk and launching missles at the moon. (And a very loose dress code, heh, heh.)
2001-10-03 03:30:46 PM  
You think that's a farkin kewl underground city or somethin?

Here, THIS is a farkin kewl underground city.
2001-10-03 03:31:38 PM  
Damn, Primus... you running 12.5 : 1 or something? hehe


17:1? BOOM!

If I had $1.5M to spend on a house, it would be Marco Island, FL not Kansas!!!!Who wants to live in Kasas, Dorthy????
2001-10-03 04:12:12 PM  
Who'd want to live in Marco Island when you could live in a missile base!!??
2001-10-03 04:37:29 PM  
Damn, I only got 2 number on the lottery tonight, so the base-warming party is off guys. Sorry.

PS If you want to buy an island go to

It's the best island real estate site I've found.
