Chinese man spends his life savings on an ark to save him from 2012 apocalypse

A Chinese man spent about $160,000, his life savings, on an ark that he says will help protect him during the apocalypse that some say will happen on Dec. 21, 2012, based on their interpretation of the Mayan calendar.

Buzz:60's Patrick Jones says that it doesn't look like the ark is the sturdiest thing ever built and maybe if the end of days are really upon us, there are better things to do than build a boat.
