Why would anyone be surprised by something like this? Do you think Bill Gates, etc. don't have multiple bol's? Thing is, what happens to these people when they get to their hideout...who's going to protect them from their own security people if they have their own ideas?

WTF is a "Bolthole"?

Sounds like a bad gay bar name.

You would have to rely on all countries going under at the same time. Otherwise providing security for some richy rich would not only be a decent earner. But a viable bug out plan of your own.

These Davos morons honestly think the disenfranchised classes are going to view them as different/separate from the political class??


They'll suffer the same retribution as the political classes will, one that even their remote airstrips and farms won't protect them from..

That's NutZ. Just yesterday, I noticed an empty bolthole, and I filled it - with a bolt and then added a nut to keep it there. Didn't hafta be rich, but the person who was working there thought I was super for fixing it.

super rich..mega yachts, some, like Oracle's Larry Ellison (Tony STark wannabee) have entire islands now..

guys like that will have the resources to deal with locals, even zombies...but when the Navy or Coast Guard pulls up to the dock...wanting the logistical resources, etc...game over.

course most of us will be long gone, eaten by infected zombies by then so we won't get to gloat, but still..nice to think about Bill Gates hitting the Restart button on his mouse cause he hasn't got a trigger to pull

Dyslexia and/or failing eyesight can produce interesting results. When I first read the title I got "Panicked Super-Rich buying BROTHELS" and that brought me to a dead stop.

So wouldn't it be nice to know where the ultra rich guy has bought a bolthole near by.

I think the chances are he will go to one of his other nice places to hide and I can use the one he prepped but decided not to go to. Bonus
