Businessman to create real Jurassic Park

When you're a billionaire and you've already bought your own country, made your own movie and played catch with your own elephant, there comes a time when boredom sets in. What next?

If you're eccentric (read: insane) Australian moneybags Clive Palmer then you'll decide to pool a large amount of your funds into creating a real-life version of Jurassic Park.

According to The Sunshine Coast Daily, Palmer is in "deep discussion" with the scientists who messed with Mother Nature once before and produced Dolly, that creepy cloned sheep from the 90s.

Apparently, Palmer (who we assume only watched the first half of Jurassic Park) plans to make the cloned dinosaur part of a resort he owns in Coolum, Australia, alongside a giant London Eye-style wheel. You know, because the dino will need something to destroy after all.

The billionaire has also revealed his intentions to create a full scale replica of the Titanic.

Spoiler: none of this will end well.
