If I were an Evil Genius, I think I have found where I would build my secret underground lair.
This is Aogashima, of the coast of Japan.
Of course I would have to re-locate the 200 or so inhabitants and infect the world’s spy satellites with a bit of code that would block the view of the are before beginning construction of my super cool new abode. It would be an awesome complex: state-of-the-art, high-tech uber-base, replete with Bond villain like aesthetics and squads of Omnidroids that would patrol and persuade intruders or visitors that perhaps they might want to vacation elsewhere.
I would also have the unending financial resources to make this a reality of course.
I don’t think I would try for the whole world domination thing though… I mean, why be greedy?
I might have research projects and science projects that I would show off – like a giant sea-water hydro-plant system that would produce clean energy and as a by product, a filtration system that produces far more clean, fresh water that I could never use. I’d probably give that away. But I would laugh evilly as I did so – gotta keep up that Evil Genius image after all. 🙂
