Kho Jian, a metalworker from Louhe in Henan province, central China, is designing and building the craft using re-salvaged and converted oil tanks. The 'Noah's Ark' will come at a cost of £20,000, and will be fitted with a range of mod-cons including a kitchen and bathrooms. It will also use technology that is employed for space travel in order to keep it watertight - while also providing doors and windows. 'He believes we are heading for a world flood and he wants his own ark to save himself and his family,' said Kho, who aims to have the finished craft ready for delivery soon.

From the submitter:

Dummyload on a budget. I needed to dissapate over 100 watts of radio frequency energy into a non inductive dummyload that would be submerged into mineral oil. 94, one watt 4700 ohm resistors came out to be 50.2 ohms. Not bad! Made in USA!
