There are lots of out-there places to stay/live in the world, but I think this one takes the cake. This guy in Washington, is renting out portions of a military base, the former Larson Air Force Base. Wow... I don't think I would ever go there...that is just a little too creepy for me.

Want to play a real life version of Halo? Simply fork out $495US per month, and you could rent parts of a former military base, complete with thousands of feet of connected underground tunnels.

The property is the former Larson Air Force base complex, which the government shut down in the seventies. The current owner, Bari Hotchkiss, has been using it as a summer retreat for his family, and placed portions of it on the rental market a while back. Rents vary from $1500/month for a 160 feet tall missile silo with 150 ton silo doors in the ceiling, to $495/month for a floor in the equipment terminal building.

$495 a month is a bargan in the DC area.

Yeah it's a bargain pretty much anywhere... but the location does not appear convenient at all...
