Vivos Building Underground 'Cities' for Doomsday

Are you ready for December 21, 2012, the day the world will come to an end? Privately funded Vivos has you covered with a place to stay during the aftermath: a network of underground facilities that could eventually evolve into a system of subterranean mini-cities... granted that the Earth doesn't actually explode or something.

As if ripped out of a science-fiction movie, each 20,000-square-foot facility can accommodate up to 200 people, and comes stocked with a year's worth of food in every kitchen. Costing an average of $10 million each for Vivos to build, the facilities offer community areas, urgent care and dental centers, banks, and many other accommodations. Yep, sewer is included.

"Vivos is the life assurance solution for your family, to survive for up to one year in an autonomous, hardened and nuclear blast proof, underground shelter," the company said. "We invite you to join us and a community of 200 people, as a co-owner of the Vivos survival shelter complex closest to your home area from our planned network of 20 shelters. Where else would you go with just a few days' notice?"

A reservation for one spot in a Vivos facility costs around $50,000. Heck, this place would make for a cool vacation resort once the 2012 panic clears. Just throw in a few spas, gambling tables, night clubs, rogue chest-bursting aliens...

    So, I looked at the website...

    1. 1 year of stocked food
    2. 200 people, selected by the company from a pool of interested people, who will be allowed to purchase shares of a shelter.
    3. The company provides administrative and security details.
    4. "Owners" (the 200 people) will be given tasks based upon their life skills.

    I like to play a certain game named Fallout 3...

    1. Pool of people selected for Vault survival.
    2. Tasks...
    3. Initial security and administration provided by the company.

    And, lastly...

    If you look up "Vivo," it is a bio-science research company. It could be a name, but Vivo versus Vivos? (Vault experimentation anyone?) Credibility: There isn't a single shelter in Georgia (the Atlanta area) planned, yet there is one in Alabama. Vivo is based in AL.
