Ohmigod, this article absolutely made me swoon. It touched on all my childhood fantasies (still kicking around today) or stumbling across some super-amazing underground lair and making it my own. All the leftover techno junk would only sweeten the deal. The carpet was welded to the floor with metal fibers so it wouldn’t conduct static electricity? How hot is THAT? Damn, I want my own spy base.
