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.

WE Energies decided to cut off my power, so a few minor kludges later, the whole house has power, not shown is the extension cord with two male ends.

Last Thanksgiving we showed you how to cook a turkey using thermite. Now that summer is here (and somehow already coming to an end), it's time for something more BBQ-friendly. DIYer Ben Krasnow gathers his family and friends together for some nice beef kebabs. I'm not entirely sure about sticking glove-less hands near molten iron or ingesting something that's been touching said lava.

Steal 3D glasses from the theatre. Buy two pocket projectors. Borrow a tripod from your "aspiring photographer" cousin. Kludge them all together after pirating any James Cameron "film".
