    I would just like to make a point that some people, with lots of money, do some
    strange constructions. I would not be surprised if there would be an underwater
    mansion on the top of a seamount in international waters. The only thing needed
    is a boat parked above it, and an aeroplain to get to it from land. And naturally,
    to keep it secret.

    Billionaire Henry T. Nicholas III Allegedly Sought Secret Lair

    A California billionaire sought a secret lair to indulge his appetite for drugs and
    “manic obsession with prostitutes,” court documents allege.

    Henry T. Nicholas III, 47, obtained enormous wealth from Broadcom Corp.,
    the computer chip company he founded in 1991, The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

    At his estate in Laguna Hills, Nicholas splurged on tunnels and a 2,000-square-foot
    sports bar he called “Nick’s Cafe,” said filings in Orange County Superior Court.
    Nicholas allegedly planned a “secret and convenient lair” with hidden entries to indulge
    his “manic obsession with prostitutes” and “addiction to cocaine and Ecstasy,” said the

    Nicholas denied the allegations, which surfaced through contractors, engineers and
    construction workers who claimed Nicholas failed to pay millions of dollars in project
    costs, the Times said.

    Nicholas allegedly used “manipulation, lies, intimidation and even death threats” to
    pressure “nearly every contractor and vendor” to do extra work without pay “at warp speed,”
    the Times said in citing court filings.

    Another one published, says at the end:


    “Dr. Nicholas will contest these charges vigorously,” his lead attorney,
    Brendan V. Sullivan Jr. of Washington, D.C., said in a statement.
    “He is confident that he will be fully vindicated.”

    An LA Times article:July 18, 2007

    A picture of Henry T. Nicholas III in his tunnel:

    • In or around 2001, Nicholas distributed and used controlled substances during a flight on
    a private plane between Orange County and Law Vegas, causing marijuana smoke and fumes to enter
    the cockpit and requiring the pilot flying the plane to put on an oxygen mask.

    So, the tunnels of Henry T. Nicholas III
    Allegedly, some of the construction of those tunnels took place under equestrian trails of the
    Nelly Gail community of Laguna Niguel, Ca. During the construction his body guards stopped
    equestrian traffic on the trail, and the stopped people complained to the authorities.
    And that was news in Southern-Orange county, California.
