The 4PR1000A would make an interesting diode detector in a broadcast band 
receiver.  It would have a very high immunity to overload.  Tie the grids to 
the plate.  It will be pretty immune to nearby nuclear blasts and possibly 
could handle minor lightning strikes.  

Another possibility would be to connect the filament to a 220 volt 400 amp 
service and make a flashbulb out of it.  In that case, I would bring over some 
friends, a couple cases of beer and appropriate eye shields and flip the 
switch.  A 400 amp fuse might be useful, too, with medium delay.   

I think they will also work as fishing floats.
