This Home Is 26 Feet Underground

This is a regular home in Las Vegas. It’s above ground, and on a very suburban street. But underneath this normal house, there’s another house… 26 feet underground.

The home was built in the 1970s, as a safe place in case there was ever a nuclear strike.

It has two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a full kitchen, outdoor barbecue, a putting green, swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, fake trees, fake flowers, and dimmers so you can set the lighting to evening, dusk, and early morning. 

It’s currently on the market for $1.7 million, and spans 5,000 square feet.

Plus, ya know, there’s that whole toilet next to the vanity novelty going on.

New Obsession: Toilet Restaurants in China


I’m apparently a little late to the toilet restaurant party, but I’m just happy I found my way.

I saw this article in the Daily Mail today, then started Googling and obsessing. Here’s what I discovered:

  • Ice cream in a toilet bowl dish looks just as you’d expect it to…


  • Soup looks somehow even less appetizing.


  • Eating out of a toilet for two can be romantic, apparently.


My final question, then, is this:

  • While I’ve certainly sat on a toilet seat before, I’ve never had a meal on one. Am I missing out? Is there an exciting life of appetizers on the loo that I’ve been deprived of? And if I try it out, will I ever be able to un-live it if it’s terrible?



Vintage Animal Photographer Harry Whittier Frees

Harry Whittier Frees (1879–1953) was an American photographer who created novelty postcards and children’s books based on his photographs of animals. He dressed the animals and posed them in human situations with props, often with captions. These were famously popular as postcards and posters at the turn of the century. The books and postcards are both highly collectible today.

These comical images are from his 1915 book, The Little Folks of Animal Land. He created images with animals, mostly kittens recreating everyday life scenarios.  The images were titled:

  • “Lily Bufkins Cuts a Wisdom Tooth”
  • “Barker was Busy in the Kitchen”
  • “Mrs. Bufkins Takes Barker’s Place”
  • “Purra Plays a Joke on Prowler”
  • “Mrs. Bufkins had a Busy Day”
  • “Rosie was a patient model”
  • “Prowler and Purra Try the Jam”

Unlike many of Frees contemporaries, he used live animals and not taxidermy. This allows guilt-free enjoyment of the pictures without the “yuck” factor of knowing that you are looking at something dead.
