Dear list,

Sorry for being way off topic but this is so cool I need to tell people.

A bloke is / has built a 747 simulator in his backyard.  To puchase a new
it is circa $60 million a pop.

So far, he has spent 7 years and a has full time employee building it and
they plan to continue for another 7 years.
