I mean, come on, he didn't bring any beer, and doesn't have a battery-operated television set or a lawn chair or anything.

Surprisingly simple to produce oxyhydrogen fuel. Deuced difficult to store it, though.

I remember it quite clearly. It was Christmas, and my family didn't have much money. But there beneath the tree in the early morning was a single-speed bicycle. Gold, like the sun. It was everything to me.
I went everywhere on that thing. It transformed my life more than a driver's license did. Because no matter what I did, where I went, a car was just transportation. That bicycle was a ride.

Be Not Afraid Of Greatness: Some Are Born Great, Some Achieve Greatness, And Some Have Greatness Thrust Upon Them
Perhaps it is presumptuous for me to say, but I understand the men on the ladder with the prybar entirely. They are my brothers.
I do not know how I've woken up in a world where 99 percent of the population never think to do anything but point their crummy cameraphones at whatever calamity is ongoing.
The man with the prybar is worth a thousand of them.

We are Borderline Sociopathic Boys. We do not "travel." No excursions for us. Please; no junkets. Sightseeing? Pffft.
We trek. We voyage. Occasionally, we rally.
The 2012 Mongol Rally.
As is usual, it all ends in tears and laughter. That's the fun:

First Day Of School In Chechnya. Trapper Keeper? Check. #2 Pencils? Check. Bag Lunch? Check. Ammo? You Betcha
I don't know much, but I know for a dead certainty that this guy's kid is getting an "A" in everything, whether he shows up or not.

Just Think; If Shuan Hern Lee Was American, They'd Let Him Drink A Beer Seventeen Years After Performing This
That's silly, of course. He's Australian. If he was American, he'd be loaded to the gills on ritalin and put in the Special Ed class.

Holy cow, aspiring filmmakers Derek Kwok and Henri Wong made a Batman movie using 1/6 scale action figures (They're not dolls, mom! They're action figures!)and a whole lot of ingenuity. It ain't Shakespeare, but it's all right.

He has a scrape on his shin. Go figure.
The video has 19,536 views. Each and every one accompanied by the viewers watching through their fingers and saying: no no no non nyet, yikes nein no...
By the way, Google translates the rider's name to: Rick Cuckoo. Indeed.

The Borderline Sociopathic gymnast fears only two things: pigeons and sneezing.
By the way, impress your friends and win bar bets by knowing the name of that circus music they're playing on the soundtrack: Sobre las Olas by Juventino Rosas.

Kwon Soon Keun, the seventy-two-year-old Korean-Canadian overnight sensation, is our Honorable Borderline Sociopathic Boy of the day. The BSBFB digs his understated style.
When he's 90, he wants to play in the Young Rascals.

Livermore Falls, New Hamster represent! The Pumpkin Seed bridge, abandoned in 1959, sits 103 feet over the Pemigewassett river. But remember; calculating the height is OK --but never tell me the odds.

The Borderline Sociopathic Blog For Boys Hereby Demands That Hollywood, Bollywood, Shepperton, Univision, PBS, The Entire Blurry Cable Access Industry, The Home Shopping Network, And Everybody That Walks And Talks In Burbank Hire This Guy For Everything Immediately If Not Sooner
Last year I got one foot in the stunt door by working as a rigger on Total Recall. After meeting some amazing performers, I decided that I needed to up my game. A lot.
Half a year of training-my-ass-off later, I was ready to begin. Rather than waiting to land enough professional gigs to fill my demo reel, I decided to be proactive. With the help of some great friends, I put this video together to showcase my new skills and hopefully entertain a few people.

In Tomorrow's Exciting Episode, We'll Watch Yevgeny And Sergei Shoot Skeet Indoors With A Bazooka. But Today, Fishing!
You know, the undisputed kings and queens of all things weird on the Intertunnel used to be the Japanese, but man, they're slacking these days. Barely moving the meter. But our Russian friends are gettin' it done, every day.
