Forget fun, storage space, or underground treehouses, there ARE potential crises that could warrant building a bunker. Even if you don't believe that an earthquake, super volcano, sunspot radiation, electromagnetic pulse, oil shortage, economic collapse, disruption of the electrical grid, or a rogue asteroid will occur, there are events that could warrant building a bunker. While I'm not a prepper, I do believe it's possible that there could be some sort of world-wide epidemic that could cause a panic. The common flu bug hit the U.S. extremely hard already this year. Viruses are mutating incredibly fast. Every day we read about bird flu, norovirus, and hantavirus. Anything's possible. Imagine if some epidemic hit a large city like New York. The survivors would be flooding out into the countryside to escape being infected. I'm not panicking, but if I were a rich man I'd certainly think about building a bunker of some sort. Just to be on the safe side.

@huntfishtrap,
I agree, but there are a few more reasons than just bad weather. You could do it for fun or for storage space...I'm sure a kid would like it; it sounds like an underground tree house to me.

If you build a bunker for any reason other than protection from bad weather, you ARE a crazed conspiracy theorist.

In Oklahoma, they call them "tornado shelters".
