I have no idea what section this belongs in, but I thought it was a pretty cool site.

Cool site, indeed! The story of Centralia, PA always creeped me out.

Least surprising story to me: Jazzland/6 Flags NO; that was a kickback boondoggle from the getgo

Some great stuff there. I'll have to spend more time on that blog. I did not know about the LHC that was being built in Texas that was abandoned. 14 miles of tunnels... think I just found my next home. Laughing

Wasn't that 90s movie "Nothing but Trouble" with Chase, Candy, and Ackroyd based on Centralia?

SUPERB ! cheers cheers cheers

I drove past Centralia a couple times, before the state closed the road (maybe 20 years ago). The air smelled like a winter day when people's furnaces all used soft coal. The weird part was, there were wisps of smoke coming up out of the ground.

I'm not familiar with that film, but I think the video game Silent Hill was inspired by it.
I was amazed to read that there were still a few people living there as of 2009. I guess for some people, the right to stay on your own land is just a bit more important than living someplace that's not on fire. Razz

Eagle Mountain kind of reminds me of the shell of a town that was once the lauded Salton Sea in California. It's disturbing, but creepy and cool in a way. When out in the bush, I see lots of abandoned buildings, century-old projects that had-been, and I dig them.

It's not that bad, but it ain't good, either. Apparently people in L.A. are complaining they can smell the dead fish that washes on shore by the ton each day. Laughing Which always makes me giggle.

Cool

MisterE, why did you do this to me?

I try not to waste TOO much time browsing sites but this one keeps me on for way too much time.

It's lots of fun though.
