A few weeks back, someone posted a link to a misslebase for sale on ebay: here Then someone came up with the best Idea ever: Have UG buy the missle base!

We would need at least 100,000 people. each of those people would have to be willing to pay $20 each (to a lawyer of course, to make a joint payment, cant trust anyone on here ). That would get us the missle base in full, AND $500,000 worth of renovations.

The bad news is, right now the group is only up to about 400 people, so we need a more realistic goal: 15,000 people would pay $20 to make the down payment of $300,000 , and THEN 50 cents a month for 3 years.

The problem is, We arent getting enough people fast enough. Heres something I came up with, to help maybe get this done:


If we want this dream to become a reality, we need to get serious. This guy will have the listing up until January (?) about, and we are growing, but not fast enough. Heres my plan:

1. Get the word out. devout most of our energy not in method of payment but in spreading the word. Those who join this forum will be deemed serious. Branch out to other websites, talk about it at school, do whatever possible. Goal is 1,000 proud by the end of November. At that point we will have gotten the ball rolling fast enough for the next point...

2. Decision December. We should be getting in enough members and such to begin thinking about payment. I think if the number is below 5000 people, we should collect enough for the downpayment, and then pay monthly ($7000 monthly). If the number of people is above 5000 by mid-late december, we should shoot for the 1.5 mill straight up.

3. Legal arrangements. Get a member of this project (preferably 18+) to get a lawyer, so we can make a joint payment on the misslebase. I don't know too much about this subject though, so we will need to break out the law experts of UG.

4. Speical. I think if you payed the base-payment, then you get access at all times, and if you payed more than the base-payment, you get a plaque on the wall. anyone agree or disagree?

5. Party

6. Renovations Start fundraising for renovations (but thats another project )


And yeah, thats my plan. Opinions?

How about we buy it and forget about renovations? How much would it cost then?
Also, where is it?

Why wont it work? I admit, it does seem INCREDIBLY unlikely, but I honestly think that if we get enough people, it will come together.


EDIT: to jthm_guitarist, all the information is on the page. If we get 100,000 people without renovations, it would be $15. The number for the 15,000 people is how much it would be without renovations.

Once you have 15,000, owning it collectively is a bitch. That's not a lot of space for 15,000 people to occupy.

Though if we bought surrounding land, we COULD make our own country. In that case, I'm in. I'll put in $100 for the initial payment at $10 a month until it's paid off, but I get to be King Schneider, Ruler of Schneidoria. Schneidoria would be the name of our nation, and I would rule it.

Well for one you would have to get people to work there. I mean how are you gonna keep it members only if you don't have someone working at the gate or something? Basically in order to do that you would have to find someone on UG in central WA who basically has no plans for their life. Not to mention you have the lifetime commitment of taxes, electricity, water, internet (optional), cable (optional). Yeah your plan might work for buying/restoring it but what about the bigger picture? Who are you going to get to maintain and clean it and whatnot? Contractors? What happens when the extra money runs out?

Dude lets get serious here, u live in NY. I mean it would be awesome if it happened and all but seriously what happens when people start flaking out and someone gets in some major debt? After that you will have a bunch of pissed off UG'ers who want their money back and a bunch of pissed off lawyers trying to sue the pissed off UG'ers.
EDIT: Like I said its a good idea but the odds of it falling through are VERY slim. If anyone is actually serious about this then they need to get a lawyer NOW and figure out how this is gonna have to work.

Jesus?


But really, Not like we have to be uberstrict about members only. maybe if we get paranoid, a card-scan gate. I think it has its own power generators, im not to sure about water though. this IS one of the few bases with working plumbing. Also, im not sure about taxes. If this is joint owned and such does anyone know how taxes would work? Its not like anyone would permanantly live there (i hope not.) Im pretty sure people on here would volunteer to clean it like, once every 5-10 years...

What we need to worry about right now though is getting people in place. once we do that, well contact a lawyer and figure this out.

If we buy it, it'll turn into a total bum-hole.
By "Bum-Hole" I mean bums will live in it.


...it'll probably smell like a bum hole too
