fredener1 : Looks like we germans prepared better for nuclear war ^^ During the cold war underground parking lots and subway stations were designed or upgraded to serve as public bunkers in case of need - part of the double purpose infrastructure doctrine (Motorways as improvised airfields, bridges with shafts for explosives, etc.)

Roblox Expert : This would be useful If you're an North Korean who is afraid of a missile attack from Murica Another Tip: Obsidian reinforces it. Diamond is op. If not just hide in the Nether
