The Doomsday Vault...

You just know that somewhere there's a highly imaginative and resourceful sci-fi writer who's writing up a great post apocalyptic thriller that either ends or begins right here in remote Arctic Norway (can't wait to see the "fine art" photo essay either).

And I pray we never have to actually open and use this arc of life that someone has had the incredible foresight to construct as we continue to poison and imperil our planet (ie-ourselves) with pesticides and genetically modified food substitutes!

Stan, there's a company here in the UK that bought up some of the old MOD secure sites left over from the cold war, where galleries, museums and private collectors can hire archive space.

Mark- A janitorial position for $15 an hr (I think in Ohio) just drew around 800 applicants. Sometimes I think all galleries should be turned into affordable housing, along with banks, churches, etc...

We've started to turn wonderful old UK churches into UN-affordable housing!

Over here they would've become luxury condos.

That is a cool shot!
