But underground Government cities, I haven't heard any decent info. Sounds a bit farfetched though. Facilities, sure, but cities?

Can you get that fried onion thingy there that looks like a flower?

I'm not too sure. I've never been to Coober Pedy, I think it's pretty much just a mining town though.

Are you talking about a Blooming Onion? I have never heard of them before, just searched it then.

  • you want to know the answer? Hell, I'm still working on the question!

Is that from the state of Washington, or the District of Columbia?

Do you have any idea of the time, manpower, expertise, and expense involved in such an undertaking?  And the sheer number of people that would have to be involved in such an undertaking would positively guarantee that someone ( a whole bunch of 'someones') would talk about this

I frankly don't think that an underground city inhabited by thousands of people is so crazy. There's a sewerage plant which also doubles as a desalination plant in Sydney. It has about 70% of its workers working underground, they employ hundreds of people.
Why is it such a stretch that some other corporation has some underground cities where they've got people working on things. It really doesn't have to be a conspiracy. It could just be your average boring secret instead. Have a bunch of them sign some confidentiality agreements, pay them enough money and there you have it, underground cities.

I'm not so sure you could call the "cities" in the sense of 24/7 365 a year occupation/residency.  However, they have the "potential" to do so in a crisis.

Site "R" (sometimes called "The little Pentagon") is deep inside South Mountain.  It's less than an hour from DC via helicopter.  (Actually fairly close to Camp David.)  Supposedly, this is where Rumsfeld went during 9/11.  I knew some contractors that worked there (electricians) and they said it was a virtual city underground and was supposed to be an emergency command center in case of disaster.  They also said...that was all they were allowed to say.

There is also (I think this is the name) Mount Storm here in Virginia.  It is supposedly capable of supporting thousands of Government officials and support staff for indefinite periods of time.  It has underground lakes for water storage, sewage treatment, air purifiers...you name it.  It's another place that no one is really allowed to talk much about other than it's a real place, it's a literal city and it's there in case of disaster/invasion.  It is also a quick trip by chopper from DC.

So...there are places that "could be" cities, but the guards and staff are not what you would call "citizens".  At the end of their shift, my understanding is they take an elevator to the surface...and go home.

I thought that's all you guys ate down there - at least that's what the Outback Steakhouse commercials indicate.

I recall watching a documentary on 9/11 and they brought Dick Cheney somewhere underground that was pretty extensive. Also, apparently the Moscow subway has basically an alternate version, with underground bunkers.
Well, everyone knows that all Governments have shelters and bunkers for use if the Balloon should go up; they've been doing that since WWIi, of course; but as so often seems to be the case, these conspiracy-type theories always go several steps further, and envisage completely unverifiable vast complexes for use when (presumably) the New World Order take over. Personally I blame Cubby Broccoli; no self-respecting would-be ruler of the World is complete without a Secret Underground Lair.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

A few years back, on the Discovery Channel, I saw a program about these  secret "underground cities".  The reporter wasn't allowed to enter the site, but, a military
officer, who wished to remain anynomous, did say that it's a thriving metropolis, complete with up-and-running businesses and stores, neighborhoods, schools, roads,
cars, ect!!!  He had said, a lot of people live down there!!!

I've been keeping an eye out, for a repeat of that show, but, somehow, I really don't think it'll be shown again.  It was quite interesting!!!
