Good idea, but too ambitious

mrcrono

I dig the idea of UG users getting together and buying a venue. That just makes sense.

But a missile silo costing $1.5 Million dollars?

What about, like, a bar in a city? Where people will actually go. Hell, even a barn that we could clean out and fix up would work.

If we're going for Epic, then sure lets try and get a missile silo. If we're going for attainable, I say we try and get something more reasonable.

I think we'd have a problem if over 1200 people part owned one little bar. I think we'd have a problem if over 1200 people part owned one little bar.

It'd be like they own stock in the venue. The person with the most shares would make the decisions, but anybody with stock could vote on stuff. It'd be like they own stock in the venue. The person with the most shares would make the decisions, but anybody with stock could vote on stuff.

The missile silo Is a really good idea, and since the one on ebay is gone, why not go for one in like the midwest? where more people could go to. STL or something more realistic?

There's more silos on the internet that are 8 acres for $300,000 I think we should go for one of those There's more silos on the internet that are 8 acres for $300,000 I think we should go for one of those

There is no missile.

I think we should all buy a lot of acreage. Like each of us buy one acre or something, and starting up a ranch. We could build some nice log cabins for homes/studios, and we could jam all day long.

So what happens if we all start donating and we don't get enough money? What happens to the money that's been donated?

A good idea would be to raise money and buy the bar, If that's possible, and succeeds we can use the profits from the bar and more donations, sponsors etc, to save for a missile silo.

what if some HUGE guitarist like Page or Clapton were on UG and joined this group? wouldn't that be weird if they actually bought a missle silo? what if some HUGE guitarist like Page or Clapton were on UG and joined this group? wouldn't that be weird if they actually bought a missle silo?

Why not take over the abandoned area recently known as Area 51?

EDIT: Ooops, I didn't see that someone already suggested that idea... sorry.

I have, an idea!

I think that we should start forwarding this group profile to all our friends and as many UG users as we can, and ask them to keep passing it on, I think this will increase the speed that we get more members. If Everyone agrees with this, then we should make a new thread instructing members to start spreading the message.

Think about it, if over 1,000 members forward this profile to at least 10 friends or random users, and those freinds and users also start sending the message, then we should start getting a crap load of new members, the numbers will just keep multiplying!!! This also increases the reality of actually accomplishing this goal!!!!! Tell me what you think...

Why not by the bar and call it "missile solo" and give it a dark dry missile solo kinda theme to it. It will be like a western cowboy bar excpet without the funny strw hats or dungarees.

It might be better to buy an abandoned control center, they have more than one room, so thet means more than one venue, besides, isn't a silo pretty much just a giant hole in the ground?

MISSLE SILO = BADASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean, come on! i fully understand the whole bar thing, but only a few people could be able to go to it regularly. But to be able to say: hey, i helped by a missle silo! would be awesome, even if i never made it there that much.

seriously, the whole bar thing is a bad idea: people on this site come from all over, and the idea of a small or even a large bar is kinda rediculus. maybe a small fraction of the people could go to that bar, because where would you put it? new york? London? some other major city? No, stick with the missle silo, because yes: it's very ambitious, but i think traveling halfway around the world or at least the country to go to a RETROFITTED MISSLE SILO is alot better than giving a good 15 hundred microshares of a bar that's not guaranteed to be successful. and even at that: it's a bar. who's gonna run it? who's gonna buy the drinks? seriously, the whole bar thing is a bad idea: people on this site come from all over, and the idea of a small or even a large bar is kinda rediculus. maybe a small fraction of the people could go to that bar, because where would you put it? new york?
