A few thousand years ago a man named Noah began to build a boat. He was probably mocked and ridiculed for it. The "tree huggers" said he was cutting too many trees. The environmentalist said the smell of the glue he used was a health hazard. Besides, all that mess he was making was an eye-sore. The papers wrote editorials against him. The comedians used him as the brunt of their jokes. The special interest groups where trying to get laws passed to stop the building of such "an enormous, useless boat." However, in the end, Noah was floating stock while the rest of the world was in liquidation.
