Just because it's down the street from Meuon: The BoingBoing entry on the Signal Mountain flying saucer house selling.

this "house" has had a long history of troubles or strange happenings...when it was first built, the residents of signal mountain were very upset with this STRANGE contraption that was being called a house. it was set on fire two times, but could not be destroyed for some strange reason. it has had more than one owner, maybe this one will stay.

it definitely sits on the side of the mountain along the highway in your face. i've always thought that whoever lives there must love the strangeness and odditites of the space ship house. i have heard that it gets or has had terrible leaks. interesting history that just keeps going on.

I had to stop and look, it has some interesting structural issues, cracks in the concrete running under the bottom and on the legs. It needs to be gutted, fixed and updated (it smells musty and moldy at the doorway, outside.

The comments on the blog entry linked above just reminded me how mundane and limited the average sheeple are.

I wish the new owner much luck and fun with her new unique home, I hope it gets a major rehab and a yard full of little green men statues. I'd offer to wire up an exterior light show worthy of such a place, it really deserves better than what it has had.

you know, i think the first owner had those "green men" out in the "yard". that was before it was burnt the first time.
