With 25 percent of Americans believing they will see an apocalypse in their life, more people are prepping for a doomsday scenario than you might think! The Doctors investigate how some are preparing for the end of the world.
If you are worried about unforeseen events like a worldwide economic collapse or a massive natural disaster, the Survival Condo, located in a remodeled missile silo at an undisclosed location in Kansas might the place for you. It offers epoxy-hardened concrete walls that are 9-feet thick, military-grade security and luxury living spaces that include a gym, movie theater, communication center, medical center, bar/lounge, arcade, classroom, rock climbing wall and a swimming pool. The condos offer a five-year food reserve for each person, along with necessities like organic hydroponic and aquaculture food production, redundant electric power, redundant water supply and a redundant air filtration system.
Protection from the apocalypse will cost anywhere from $1.5 million to $5 million and one of the company’s location is already sold-out. So, is this a good solution for the possible end of days or simply another home for the rich and paranoid?
Psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli explains that it pretty normal to be nervous about the possibility of a doomsday event. “Anxiety is all about a loss of control… so if you can control that in some way by prepping, it just makes it a lot easier. The prep is completely a coping mechanism.”
Larry Hall is the developer and C.E.O. of the Survival Condo project tells The Doctors that people who have purchased units are professionals, doctors, architects, business people, many of whom have children. He says the idea of the project is to give people a second home that also just happens to be a nuclear-hardened bunker. He shares that he has a client who used the bunker home after Hurricane Sandy destroyed his home.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork wonders, “It’s not so much how you die, it’s how you live and if every single day of your life you’re worried about the apocalypse, you may not be living your life to the fullest.”
Are you and your family prepared for a doomsday catastrophe or are you simply going to let fate take its course?
