Zzyzx, California - a pseudo-town founded in 1944 by "King of Quacks" Dr. Springer as a health resort/utopia. Located between LA and Vegas. Springer was a self proclaimed minister & quack doctor who ran a "natural" hot springs that was heated by hidden broilers, which eventually expanded into a mini town. In 1974 the town was shut down by the government as he didn't actually own the land & had ripped off so many people. It is now a fish habitat run by CSU.
