Ok, so I was not online last evening and was not privy to the umpteen posts about this particular issue, I just read about it this morning... and I
just had to walk away for a few minutes wondering just what the heck is wrong with people... do they not stop to think??
The last time people flocked to purchase bunkers in such droves was right before the Y2K scare, according to Stephen O'Leary, an associate
professor at University of Southern California and an expert on apocalyptic thinking.
And we all know how the Y2K thing worked out for us..... and by the way.... just how does one become an 'expert in apocalyptic thinking'??
Elan Yadan, a clothing store owner in Los Angeles, is one of the many customers who rushed to find a bunker last week. Yadan secured a spot for
his family in a Vivos' shelter, putting down four deposits totaling $20,000 -- $20,000 that had been earmarked for a down payment on a new
Once Vivos collects deposits from at least half the number of residents needed to fill the bunker, it will take them on a tour of the
near-completed site. At that point, they must pay the rest of the $25,000 reservation fee.
Poor man...and I mean that not in a sarcastic kind of way... but really, I think he's been played and he does not even realize it. I believe it was
PT Barnum that said "A fool and his money are soon parted".... well it seems that this poor man's new home down payment and he were very cleverly
parted indeed. Considering that when this company gets to the stage where they can do thier 'walk through' with clients that have already given
over the downpayment, Mr. Yadan will have to fork over an additional $100K ($25K per each of the 4 family members) I hope his clothing business picks
up a great deal......
The bunker, which is being built under the grasslands of Nebraska
This man lives with his family in LA?? And the bunker is in.... the grasslands of Nebraska??? Honestly, how is he planning on getting there? Car?
Train? Plane? What if there is no way of transport other than walking?? Even then walking out in the open may not be safe and if it is, do they have
the necessary skills to get them to the bunker in Nebraska from LA? Does he have a plan B? I sure as shootin' hope so.
I'm not knocking those who have or are planning to get an underground bunker... not in the least. Everyone prepares to the best of their ability for
whatever they feel their greatest dangers are. But I would think it would be much more adventageous to have said bunker close to home so my chances of
reaching it in time would be better.
I feel sorry for Mr. Yadan for having fallen victim to his own fears and for not allowing himself time to think about all aspects of the situation
before being stripped of what will amount to $120,000. But the company, Vivos, should absolutely be ashamed of themselves for taking advantage like
this.... I guess with a total of $28,500,000.00 on the line greed takes over and decent business practice gets tossed out the window.
