    The Enterprise is awaiting recycling in Newport News right now. I’m sure you could get it for a steel. ;)

    Washington state has replaced sections of the floating bridges across Lake Washington. I've always thought one of the sections would make a pretty good aircraft carrier. Put a 3.5 HP Evinrude on it, and you're all set!

    Yes and no. SpaceX is landing rockets on a converted barge that is three hundred feet long. The no part is the barge width.
