I would so do that.  I would probably did from radon exposure or something,

This would be a great place for a date on the next Bachelor.

/then we can seal the cave off and watch them turn on each other in 1080p

Is the emergency exit covered in lipstick?

Sounds fun, but as someone suffering from mild tinnitus, trying to sleep anywhere in absolute silence would be slow torture for me. That and the Balrog, of course.

They should use a big rock for a door and not let you out for three days.

Well, if I wasn't claustrophobic before, I am now.

They would never hear you kill that hooker down there.

I'm sorry, I forgot this was in Sweden.

The would never hear you kill that hööker.

I have moderate tinnitus so I know exactly what you mean about trying to sleep in total silence. I use a fan also but if I may be a shill for a moment: I downloaded an app by Ipnos Soft called "Relaxing Melodies" that contains tons of relaxing sound effects. It's helped me more than the fan. The free version is great but the paid version is just farking awesome. Maybe look into it? I really does help.

Although the temperature in the mine is constantly near 0 degrees Celsius, the room is heated and fully equipped.

I would have thought it would be warmer than that... caves around here are usually somewhere in the mid 50s(12ish C) all the time and I was under the impression that the deeper you go in mines, the warmer it gets.

That much silence and darkness would be maddening.  That's weapons-grade hallucination material there...

and yes, Balrogs...

Where does one pee and poo in these accommodations?

You can overnight in many caves for much less - not as luxurious, but a lot cheaper
 
2014-05-06 11:17:34 AM  
Don't you have to worry about dying from methane or other poison gas in mines?

I have tinnitus and minor nerve damage from a tumor on the right side of my brain.  Quiet never seems to bug me, and if there is noise that keeps me awake, I roll over on to my left side.  Problem solved.  I do use a fan though.

I had a small panic attack reading the description.

Thanks for the heads-up, but the fan really does the trick for me, actually. Also, I sometimes pop in my "Sleepy Time" CD and let it lull me to sleep. I've gotten so Pavlovian about it that if I play it in the middle of the day, I feel like taking a nap!

I think it's actually hoökkår.That's how they do it at IKEA, anyway. Or so I've heard.

Bah, once you get 20 or 30 meters down what does it matter? The real question is how many hours of crawling are you away from the surface?

The caves in Virginia are 55 degrees F all year round. The caves in the northern part of the country will be cooler while caves down south will remain warmer year round. Temperature in caves are highly dependent on the latitude.

/didn't stay at a holiday inn express
//just cave alot
///cavers save spelunkers
////over 4000 caves in VA...fyi

500 feet? That's not much to brag about. In Turkey they have cave hotels that reach back in time AND have a view.

Anyone know if that Polish salt mine has an overnight stay? I doubt Homestake would let you in, they built that place to keep shiat out.
 
2014-05-06 01:59:29 PM  
I heard that place was the pits

Subby got it wrong. It's not about how cheap your mom is, it's about how deep you can stay in her "hotel."

The Irresponsible Captain: Bah, once you get 20 or 30 meters down what does it matter? The real question is how many hours of crawling are you away from the surface?


That was my thought. 50 feet is pretty much the same as 50000 if it's a cave.

Also it's not silent it's 1,000 leaky faucets all at once and constant.

No free wifi? That's a deal breaker.

Comcast, Verizon and AT&T have never tried to mask their attempts at tiered internet (or respecting user's privacy) before, wonder why Level 3 is being so secretive about who is blackmailing them?
