Norway builds doomsday vault

June 19, 2006

doomdsay-vault.jpgNorway has started construction on a doomdsay vault carved into a frozen mountainside on a secluded Arctic island to house 3 million of the world's crop seeds in case catastrophe strikes and certain crops are obliterated. The seeds, packaged in foil, would be stored at such cold temperatures that they could last thousands of years, acting as a Noah's Ark of food crops. The vault will cost $4.8 million and Norway is footing the bill for the entire thing.

It's a good idea but maybe they should consider building a similar vault for humans. And by humans I mean me. Because when that meteor strikes and everybody on Earth is vaporized, they're gonna need somebody to eat all 3 million of those preserved crops. And I'm feeling pretty hungry.
