Cape Romano's Abandoned Dome Homes Are a Snapshot of Florida's Possible Future

Just beyond Florida's Ten Thousand Islands in Cape Romano sits a collection of odd white-domed structures in the middle of the water. They look like Miami's Stiltsville meets some postapocalyptic sci-fi movie. The uninformed have spread a lot of rumors about what the domes could possibly have been: abandoned cult headquarters, evidence of ancient aliens, the scene of some ghastly crime, or a failed eco-experiment in living at sea.

The truth is much more mundane, abeit still scary. The domes once sat on land and were the vacation home of an oil magnate, but they were abandoned in the '90s and have since been claimed by the sea. They paint a picture of what might eventually happen to much of Florida if nothing is done about rising sea levels and the attendant threat that hurricanes and beach erosion pose to the state's coastline.

Categories: WTF Florida

Is "three-breasted" woman Jasmine Tridevil a troubled soul? A fame-hungry schemer? The most brilliant American performance artist in years? Sometimes it's best not to search too hard for a label and simply appreciate something for all of its possibilities.

Whatever the case, the internet has largely reversed course since yesterday and decided that Tridevil's alleged surgically attached third breast is probably fake, but our fascination with it certainly isn't.

On Sunday evening, a 25-year-old man from South Florida named Peter Paul William Ferrero climbed down from the Palin family's third-floor balcony, approached an arriving Bristol Palin in the driveway, took off his sunglasses, and proceeded to tell the terrified 23-year-old reality television star and oldest daughter of the failed vice-presidential candidate that he wanted to speak with her, Alaska Dispatch News reported yesterday.

Palin, who had her five-year-old son Tripp with her, told Ferrero to back off, Wasilla police say, but Ferrero "continued to approach her," the newspaper reported. The affidavit added, "Ferrero said he wanted to have ten minutes of Palin's time to explain his issues to her."
