mmm domes.
posted by danostuporstar 08 October | 08:46
I'm sure they are raising a bumper crop of palmetto bugs and snakes down there....

(a palmetto bug is the politically correct term for the largest freaking cockroach you ever saw. They fly, too.)

I got a hundred bucks I'll chip in.

Me me me me! Though bunnyfire is probably right about the palmetto bugs. Those things are SCARY.

Domes are cool and all but I can't move south, PA summers are bad enough a Fl summer would kill me.

Oh and no one's mentioned mosquitoes yet.

Good lord, I love the Mid-Atlantic.

Pool is a fishpond now stocked with coy and mosquito fish...

They eat all the mosquitoes, no? I'm sure palmetto fish will thrive also.

wow, This is an amazing deal. Did the former residents all take Kool Aid or something?

You know, maybe I should think about this. When I lived in Florida I always idly thought about starting a palmetto bug paperweight business....resin those suckers, find a roadstand, and PROFIT.

That's dude's got style.

I mean, like, a weird 1970's Popular Mechanics kind of style. But style nonetheless.

Count me in.

I looked up Venus, FL on Google maps -- it's smack-dab in the middle of a freakin' swamp. Gator country for reals. Snake-tacular. Plus, those domes are tiny -- and the footage listed doesn't take into account all the wasted space that you can't use because it's right next to a curving wall (I lived in a dome house for years, and I speak truth).

On the other hand, a quick Google search reveals the proximity of Camp Mars, a gay campground that features Saturday night Leather Disco, so there's nearby recreation.

But for only half a million bucks... Hmmm.... I wonder where all the bodies are buried...

I'm in.

and bunnyfire - don't forget the mosquito hawks. put one of those buggers in resin and i'll bet they'd sell like hotcakes.

But can we get the Brooklyn Bridge thrown in for an extra $50? That would clinch it for me, really.

Seriously, why would such a large property be on sale for so little? It makes no sense, even in light of the whole economy thing.

"Swampland in Florida"? Check.

It looks like a great place to film a 1970s dystopian sci-fi epic, but you couldn't pay me to live there.
