Ummmm......Also, when you saturate the cardboard with an epoxy, which is no doubt what this inventer did with his bike, it (cardboard) is very strong. There are sailing yachts made from this method.

Actually, most of you don't realize it, but lots of planes that you fly in are made mostly of cardboard; especially military planes that aren't detectable by radar.
The cardboard forms the walls between layers of laminate materials, like kevlar and carbon fiber. Special adhesives and compounds are added to certain areas to strengthen them in order to bond metal parts to in order to hold other metal parts.
Cardboard is very strong and very light, and can get be really thick; especially when used on planes. One inch to three inches in thickness on a plane is common.

As for the Cardboard Cathedral, I just saw a video on youtube made on sept 16. They just started and the building will be finished in December. It will weigh 1,112 lbs when finished. If the congregation gets ticked off at the preacher they can steal the church!
