Anonymous yet personal, this Blog chronicles
the daily events and musings of Jim.
It provides an easy way for his friends and family to check in on him,
and serves as a online repository for his random
thoughts, kaleidoscopic flashbacks, and writings on an array of diverse topics.
“Deconstructing Jim” is simply here to
entertain you, but not intended for college credit.

Noah's Ark

Breaking news...

This is a functioning replica of Noah's Ark built by Dutch contractor Johan Huibers in the Netherlands. Built approximately to scale, it is however 1/2 the length and 1/3 the width of Biblical dimensions. The ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high, and 20 cubits wide. That's two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. It has the same capacity as 500 train boxcars. For more information you can go to the ark's official website.
