It has been since I first had seen these photos, that I wished greatly to clear out the drug dealers and squatters of this poor broken city, erect a 10 ft tall fence around the perimeter, and host the largest paintball game ever known. Using advanced pressure sensitive padding, basic wrist mounted computers, a wifi LAN, a large server, and cameras at every corner, the game would e accurately recorded, and last days. Your guns would cease to fire upon termination and would not continue functioning until you reach a checkpoint. At the end, the score, accessible by the wrist mounted computer, would be tallied up, and the winners would receive a cash prize, produce through sponsorship and entrance fees. You could establish teams or stand alone so as not to share your prize. There would be in game currency, developed by interacting with the environment, (playing arcade games, finding caches, completing challenges)But these would leave players vulnerable. There is also limited ammo, obtainable weapons and upgrades, and so much other stuff. Teams could establish bases, form strategies. There would also be cameras in the masks for first person view on those watching at home, or to be monitored by team leaders.

somebody needs to get the money to buy detroit and do this. it'll be like the ******* hunger games or some **** but instead of getting killed you just get sent home with nothing

I'm pretty sure I could buy detroit right about now.

i want to move to detroit, no im serious
follow me here
i move to detriot into one of its hundreds of abandoned areas
i dont buy just one building i buy sixwhole square blocks ( maybe more) and wall it off from the gangs , wild dogs and deathclaws
then i make it a maze like area, adding doors and walls to some places taking them out of others. really make it look like a post apocalypse( even though detriot has pretty much done that for me) then i would set up cameras at every location possible
people could then pay me two thousand dollars to go into the most realistic survival simulator ever made and see how long they can last
probably let in some local kids once in a while to trash the place even more and scare the customers

User avatar #111 to #67 - thelastamerican (08/11/2013) [-]
2000 dollars though? I would do it if it were a really cool post apocalyptic survival camp for a week and it only cost $200 max.

Detroit used to be the wealthiest city in America. It was an industrial city, the American arsenal in WWII and the capital of the auto industry. Unfortunately, over time, politicians made promises that couldn't reasonably be kept. Expensive pension plans for city employees that wouldn't kick in until they were long out of office, expensive sports stadiums, trying to pick and choose which industries would be successful, funneling money into dying industries. When all these bills came due, the city was forced to raise taxes. Of course, upon this, the rich people left, leaving all the poor people in a city with no basic public services, because all the money is going elsewhere, and sky high taxes to boot. If you call the cops, it will take an hour for them to get there. Half the street lights don't work. All the people who have enough money to hire anyone have left. This basically forces people into crime. I could go on, but you get the point. Vicious cycle. Certainly, other factors were at play too. The fall in demand for textile workers didn't help, but if it weren't for the irresponsible leadership, those workers probably would have been able to find jobs elsewhere and life would have moved on.

Detroit is the worst rundown city in America. It's the nation's ******** .
Looking at these pictures makes it all the more believable.

can I... can I loot there?
User avatar #14 to #6 - toxicjoe (08/10/2013) [-]
I live in Michigan, and me and some friends went to an area in Detroit ,that is almost devoid of life, for a little urban exploring. We found some cool stuff, an old SNES and some games in one house, tons of hundred year old books in an old middle school, And a few odd trinkets here and there. Of course we did have to avoid both the police and some of the area gangs. That added a lot of danger, especially when we were nearly caught..

If you take protection(weapon and maybe some armor), watch your back, and choose an area or building that is truly abandoned, you can get away with a lot.
User avatar #27 to #14 - ragnarfag (08/10/2013) [-]
Why did people just left their stuff there?
User avatar #50 to #27 - toxicjoe (08/11/2013) [-]
Lots of people tried to stick it out in Detroit, but eventually money just ran out. A lot of people took what they could carry and walked away from their homes, having no money to move anything. Same goes with the schools and some businesses. I have heard that sometimes, after a bank forecloses on a home, they just leave a lot of the bigger stuff there. It's kinda sad really.
User avatar #43 to #27 - fredthemilkman (08/11/2013) [-]
My best guess is that when people left after the car industry fell, people couldn't afford to move all of their stuff.
User avatar #12 to #6 - callan (08/10/2013) [-]
Probably, but you'll want to bring your good friend Mr. Handgun.

What about St. Louis? Isn't that supposed to be a hellhole?
#172 to #5 - nightstar (08/11/2013) [-]
But, did the buildings fall apart because all the people left, or did the people leave because the buildings fell apart...
#155 to #5 - bagofmeth (08/11/2013) [-]
And actually, as of recently, the city had to declare bankruptcy. Which isn't very good as Detroit was a very large part of american history. Its actually quite depressing if you think about it. This is where the automobile originated and they're just letting this city turn into slums..

It's hard to explain properly how bad Detroit is. I was there once, on the edge of town where it becomes a big city and fancy, and stops being nothing but rundown ghetto and cool old buildings. I was with a friend and my mom and we we're going to a major art museum there. We were right across the road from it and there was human **** on the sidewalk. Then my friend walked near a manhole, they all had steam coming out of them and he puked
User avatar #123 to #117 - vritzka (08/11/2013) [-]
I hope you don't mind me asking, but what is a manhole?
User avatar #124 to #123 - thenewnuggubler ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
It's the metal lids that cover sewer entrances on streets. In some cities like Detroit, steam comes up from them. Sewer stank
User avatar #125 to #124 - vritzka (08/11/2013) [-]
Ah, thanks
User avatar #127 to #125 - thenewnuggubler ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
You're welcome. My advice: don't go there. There's a couple good restaurants downtown, but downtown is **** too (ie. full of ******* who will try to jack your car at a stoplight in busy traffic)
User avatar #131 to #127 - thenewnuggubler ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
Pretty much.

Although there are people trying to improve how Detroit looks. There have been at least 500 abandoned dilapidated homes torn down and turned into green space again.

In the 70's and so, it was one of the best cities in the US, and people were flooding to it. After a harsh economic collapse, as well as the collapse of the American auto industry in Detroit, many of the previously wealthy Americans moved from Detroit to other cities, leaving the city to help the poor with no aid from the wealthy, which spiraled into run down buildings (as seen in this picture) that were created in an economic boom, and now sit dormant in the aftermath of the collapse. In the last 40 years, the population of Detroit has been cut in half, and the majority who remain are those who are unable to move due to financial restrictions.

I wanna let people know that Detroit isn't all just ruins.
There's nice places and plenty of nice people there who are proud of where they live.
I live near Detroit and have been there more than a few times. It's not all dangerous.
It's a little annoying when people who have never been to Detroit just say "lol ******* " because they don't know any better.
It's a dying city, but it's slowly reviving with the support and love from it's dedicated citizens. That's all.

The only difference between destroyed Detroit and Business Detroit is who's robbing you, muggers or banks.
User avatar #46 to #17 - cresel (08/11/2013) [-]
how can it be dying and reviving at the same time i dont understand
User avatar #85 to #46 - vincentlaw (08/11/2013) [-]
parts of it are dying, mostly the older factory areas and less urban parts. new businesses are appearing, but people have abandoned some areas to populate others. instead of taking down the old buildings and putting up new ones in the same spots they chose to start from scratch in other areas.

some people say the same thing about new bedford, except they are starting to either take down the old mill buildings and build on the same spot or they just re-purpose them and bring them up to code.

When a city can't get through a 4th of July celebration without people getting shot, that city sucks.

Hell, the city is filing for bankruptcy.

I also live near Detroit and I've been there, and the place looked like a wasteland to me. The only thing that wasn't run down was a new prison that was being built.

Well by Detroits standards these buildings are still in perfectly good condition.
#161 - anon (08/11/2013) [-]
Its a damn shame, really. Back in the 50's detroit wasnt like this. Due to the automobile industry thriving. Now you know what outsourcing can really do to a country.......

*Now you know what ******* can really do to a country.......

The white flight that happened under our first black mayor is what killed us.
