Today at Deep beneath the rolling foothills of the Adirondack Mountains is this converted Atlas missile silo, which comes, as the listing notes, with “all tools and toys included.” We’re guessing that does not include the nuclear missile that once lurked beneath the silo’s gigantic, steel blast doors, but it definitely does include some truly awesome Cold War-era tech, such as Strangelove-ian clocks that show the time in cities around the world and gun-metal gray consoles covered with analog switches and dials for you to flip and turn while making blastoff noises with your mouth. Via Boing Boing and the great @wientzen.
