Wanna Buy a Particle Accelerator Facility?


Do you have an extra 6-1/2 million dollars? Do you want 135 acres of Texas real estate complete with a 20-year-old facility built with the future hope of being a particle accelerator but never got completed? There are 8 buildings and 14 miles of underground tunnels. How much did your government spend on this debacle? A cool $2 billion. This from the same government who wants to relocate the Montauk Facility on an island off of Long Island to Kansas--testing chemicals and illnesses on animals that would be right in our heartland. Look what it did for Lyme disease? Oh, what a wonderful and tangled web they weave. If only they spend that money on researching tide power and solar power! At least we'd all still be healthy and have something to show for it!

  1. I'd get it seriously for just the miles of underground tunnels. I'd ride around it in rollerskates and have my kitchen and office in two separate buildings so I am assured a workout all the time. I'd be using it for what it was intended, hey!

  2. 14 miles underground tunnels? I seriously have no idea what you can possibly do with it. Personal fallout shelter?

  3. Hey, you could jog without getting mugged, ride your bike every day to and from work if you have a home office and if there is a zombie apocalypse, you could have a whole city underground without them knowing. I'm seeing potential....
