Well, I guess if you’re going to believe in all this end of the world stuff, maybe it’s best to take a more practical approach –like two men in China who are building arks….
Lu Zhenghai has spent his life savings, some $160,000, building a 70-foot-by-50-foot vessel powered by three diesel engines, according to state media.
“I am afraid that when the end of the world comes, the flood will submerge my house,” the 44-year-old ex-army man was quoted as saying.
China’s most innovative ark builder, however, may be Yang Zongfu, a 32-year-old businessman in eastern China.
His vessel, Atlantis, a three-ton yellow steel ball 13 feet (four meters) in diameter, is designed to survive a volcano, tsunami, earthquake or nuclear meltdown.
As for me? Well I don’t believe in all this stuff, but just to be safe I am stocking up a large supply of wine, beer and alcohol. That way, if the end really does come, I can just sit back in my yard and enjoy the show.
Live Long and Prosper...
