Here's a curious item, courtesy of the BBC: The Norwegian government has unveiled architectural drawings of a "doomsday vault" designed to store seeds from all known food crops and keep them safe from the Apocalypse — that is to say, safe from global warming, nuclear war and asteroid strikes. Construction gets under way next month on the island of Spitsbergen, with the opening of the unique seed bank scheduled for 2008. The vault will be built 364 feet inside a mountain.
Next, what about an ark?
