He tried cooking. He tried photography. Unfortunately, he couldn't learn how to do either of those without a proper wireless signal. Well, back to the internet.

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!

I think this is exactly what a construction site needs; gas-powered, all terrain wheelbarrows speeding in between precarious scaffolding. What could go wrong?

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.

Every once in a while I look at a creation like this and wonder how it possibly came to exist. And then I remember: alcohol.

I have no idea what to think of this. It looks like a tiny avalanche hit a bike store and they just decided to go with it.

From the Submitter: I made this contraption to keep my laptop from overheating. It cooled from 69ºC to 39ºC within ten minutes. And yes, those are 2.1 kV transformers. And yes, that's a roll of duct tape.

Let me label that for you:

1: Laptop that he just can't let go of. 2: Books that he tried to read and failed. The Silmarillion (left) and Ulysses (right). 2 - again? come on dude, you only had to count to 5: Anyway, mentioned above. 3. CPU fan stolen from parent's desktop. 4: The crowning achievement of the piece, almighty duct tape.
