Pimp Noah's Ark

How’s this for taste? Hong Kong’s billionaire Kwok brothers have completed “the world's first life-size replica of Noah's ark” with a few additions: a 450-foot hull, a luxury rooftop hotel, and 67 pairs of fiberglass animals (a bit shy of the biblical number, for sure). "The financial tsunami will be over," says the project’s director. Of course, the ark wasn’t originally ordered with the current financial crisis in mind—it’s been in the works for 17 years. Other arks in the world include a Dutch ark that floats and includes real animals, but is only one-fifth the biblical ark’s size, and a 300-foot ark in New Brunswick, Canada.
