Nothing like spending millions building a full-scale (and operational) replica of Noah's Ark, yeah?
That's how you know you have tooooooooo much money! Ha!
Johan Huibers of the Netherlands did exactly that, probably not realizing that there's no way that two of every animal on the planet could ever fit on that. We're sorry, it's just not happening.
It took him 20 years to realize his dream using Genesis, books 6-9, in The Bible as his guide. He converted cubits to modern measurements resulting in a boat that's 427 feet long, 95 feet wide and 75 feet high.
We're not sure if it's less crazy or more crazy, but he didn't do it expecting anything bad to happen to the world where he would need it, even though he is a Christian. So why, then?
"I want to make people question so that they go looking for answers."
To the tune of $1.6 million!
Just for the hell of it, there is a small petting zoo with ponies, dogs, sheep, rabbits and exotic birds aboard the ship. Also, there's a restaurant.
This money probably could've helped out a bunch of charities, no?
