Most of you probably would've heard the story of Noah's Ark and the Big Flood that almost destroyed mankind.
For those in the dark, here's the gist: the higher being was once unhappy about the wickedness of men and decided, thus, to destroy all life. Noah was a righteous man who received instructions to build an ark, and to bring with him two of every sort of animal. And then came The Flood.
Now, people, picture Noah's Ark in your mind. I've always come to imagine it looking something like this :)
