President Obama might dream of a nuclear-free world, but companies that manufacture nuclear fallout shelters are counting on the bombs' existence. Japanese company Shelter Co saw a sharp increase in sales over the last two months, when it became increasingly obvious that North Korea would test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile.
All right, so Shelter Co only received 12 orders, but that's still double the number they typically sell in a year. And the shelters are not cheap. Each costs $28,000. But that's a small price to pay for surviving a nuclear attack!
Let's hope the day doesn't come when we all seriously consider buying bomb shelters.
