I had a co-worker years ago who bought an ice cream stand where two roads met in the boonies. Shortly thereafter he learned that all the surrounding land had been secretly bought up by a developer to build hundreds of executive homes - with his convenience store smack in the middle.

They were going to tear down the stand and put in a convenience store. The funniest part: when the store was done, he was going to put in a silly DVD rental box from a startup called Netflix.
