Live by a secret missile silo? How would you know?

There's this weird little (and perfect in appearance BTW...) white house on the corner of west Pico Blvd. (and some other street I can't remember offhand out here in Los Angeles) with a REALLY HUGE, really green & bushy grass yard behind it, sitting right there on a really busy and most expensive plot of really estate, right across the street from a Ralphs supermarket mini-mall, and then there's a HUGE 4 star Hotel on the other corner.

For a billion YEARS this place has just sat there and occupied that corner, and no matter what time you drive by (day or night), I've never seen anyone come or go from it. It has a few rather large HIGH VOLTAGE boxes plainly marked 'DANGER! HIGH VOLTAGE' (or what have you) posted on them (if you were wondering how I knew) connected right there to the backside of the house.

We've always suspected it was a secret silo housing one of them, you know..."nuclear bombs', just sittin' there, waiting for the moment when the Big Guy gives the okay for some monkey to push the button!

THEEK!

Why make secret silos when we have 18 Ohio Class SSBN's sitting off the coast of every continent in the world? Plus the whole state of North Dakota.

There was a Nike missile launch site up the hill from where we live now. I'm pretty sure there are some silos there. It shows up on this list: http://www.earthlogequitygroup.com/U...tructures.html

I believe at least one silo is now refurbished and houses an underground FEMA center.

All man-holes that marked "sewer" are really a nuclear missle silo.

Pics? If you get them, we can help. If you get arrested, we'll know the answer immediately.

Start protesting nukes right outside of the "house." If some one comes out and arrests you or shoots you, you know you are right. If no one comes out and people just point and laugh, your craziness is confirmed.

Glad I could help.

Here's the FEMA center / Army training facility up the hill from us. This is atop an enormous hill and it is suposedly deeply embedded. Remnant from the Cold war?... who knows what the current activities entail.

all missle silos are underground. There are suspicious houses though:

Sometime city governments will build a house facade over some ugly equipment--like transformers/switching stations etc. Ive seen writeups and pictures of them. they have trees, bushes and fences just like a real house but underneath is an oil rig or some ugly service equipment.

Missles would be underground though.

Of course they would, and that's EXACTLY what I'm talking about!

You see...

There's this HUGE grassy backyard big enough to house one, if not maybe a couple of them terminal missile thingamabobbies IN THE GROUND...UNDER THE GRASS!!!

I'm gonna post some pictures.

Sure & okay. I have to find the cross street first, but that backyard is REALLY BIG to have been vacant for ALL THESE MANY YEARS, and THAT'S where I KNOW they're hiding a BOMB!!!

Okay. Here ya go. Here's the link.

It's on the corner of Pico & Beverwil Drive.

See that grassy area? That's the 'backyard', or so they'd wanna make you think!

It looks too well cared for for someone to "never be coming and going."

When do they mow the grass?
Also, that lot on the lower-right corner was full in the picture. What is taht parking for? Is there a sign?

That takes several weeks, not years. Depending on the area I guess.

As I said the house is in perfect condition. Somebody MUST take care of it.

They must come out in the wee wee hours of the night or very early morning.

BTW: I meant that they haven't built anything on that grassy area for 'many years' (Aka : A BILLION years).

Why even argue... I know you're right. I'm just trying to make certain.

But you can see some missiles being loaded in the roof of the building to the west in that photo. Look inside the circular opening. Missiles. They must deliver to the rooftop, load through the circular bay, then port underground across the street into firing position below the grassy knoll.

That is someones house, but to be safe, I think you should stake it out for 24 hours, just to be sure. The next time I am in that area I will be looking for the house.
