There is a chap in England who has taken the idea seriously. Harry Dwyer, an energetic Self-described “doer of fun stuff” got together with some very talented friends and actually did it. —- Built a small houseboat out of cardboard. And to make it better, he filmed the whole thing and put it on Youtube.
