At first glance, this 2,465-square-foot (229-square-meter) home looks pretty modest – just a few bedrooms, bathroom, a kitchen, and a living room. But the innocent-looking door in the kitchen quickly takes you to a whole different world.

The house actually comes with a fully functional 9-cell jail in the basement!

The listing’s description says that the “possibilities are amazing with this property”. What do they mean by that? That you can jail prisoners for some extra income?

The jail was recently renovated and features functioning locks and bars

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
