Man to Cross the Taiwan Straits in a Paper Boat

Talkin' bout boats, here's another strange one - this time, from China:

A Chinese schoolteacher is preparing to cross the 112 mile-wide Taiwan Straits in a paper boat.

Zhu Yalin, a chemistry teacher in Meishan, Sichuan province, has arrived in Xiamen to build his boat.

"Not only is the whole boat made of paper, but the glue is an organic material - cooked flour soup," he told the Straits Guidance Daily.

I don't think he's going to get very far. but at least the results will be worth watching! Kinda reminds me of a festival they have in Watkins Glen, N.Y. where all the business owners in town build cardboard boats to try and see who floats the longest out on Seneca Lake. (lots of fun)
