Noah's Ark

A giant recreation of Noah's Ark could be moored in the River Thames during the London 2012 Olympics.  I'll say this:  while there are a lot of more productive ways all that money could've been spent, at least the guy stuck with it.  Meanwhile, I've driven past this monstrosity in western Maryland for over 20 years and it has stood there all along as a monument to crazy ideas.  Notably, the steel frame represents only 1/3 of the total ark, and the Phase One goal is to enclose it entirely before moving on.  I suspect that in 20 more years, we'll see a rusting shell of a 1/3 ark and people will still be wondering how all the animals could fit in that thing.
