Underground Secrets

Saw these links on the cthulhu_connect community and thought they were so intriguing that I'd mention them on my LJ too for all you boys and girls that aren't on that community.

The first story is from last September - God knows how I missed it back then - and about the Catacombs under Paris. Apparently French police found a fully equipped cinema and restaurant in an uncharted section of the network! Working electricity, phone lines and all! The security measures the group who ran it were pretty impressive too.

French Cinephiles Go Underground (BBC News Online; Thursday 9th September 2004)

The second story is from July of this year about a 25 mile network discovered in Moscow. Manhole Covers Hide Secret Moscow (BBC News Online; Tuesday 5th July 2005)

Dude you should have linked the one about the books that have been nicked from the French National Library (which I tried to write in French but couldn't spell it cause I'm an uncultured cretin). Cause that could actually be a wee bit scary based on some of the stuff they've got in there.
