Still sorting through the (virtual) piles of apartment listings even though I’m no longer desperate to find a place. The most striking listing so far (and by far) is a place advertised as “a fully equipped cave for any activity, no noise complaints.”
Even before the pictures loaded, I thought, “This is where women are taken to be killed.” Buffalo Bill‘s place wasn’t much nicer than this, nor the cave systems in Kiss The Girls or any of the thousands of places where sickos take people to get rid of them.
After running through multiple murder scenarios in my head, I got to wondering if, like so many things, this initial reaction is shaded by my American pop culture upbringing. It’s come up before, that when confronted with a situation, my reaction is totally different from those of people who didn’t grow up watching a lot of American TV and movies. On the flip side, I know a lot more about how to deal with medical situations for the same reasons.
What reaction did you have upon seeing these pictures? Do you think they’re creepy? Under what non-murdering circumstances would someone need to rent such a space?
