    This story is quite possibly the most awesome thing I've read this year. Maybe ever.

    When I was a kid it always annoyed me whenever other kids pulled something awesome off like this making me look lazy.

    I am lazy but it was still pretty annoying.

    Pretty cool of him though.

    Was it like a record? I bet it was.

    This is an awesome story. To bad the media will go right back to looking at who Lindsey Lohan slept with last night. :(

    It hasn't been covered by a lot of people.

    Heres a quote from the responses at the bottom of the article.

    Is it making you dizzy? Are you so dizzy, your head is spinning?

    Anyhoo, that's impressive. Kinda makes me feel bad that I spent the day pissing about with some bloke's website selling vacuum cleaners.

    Actually it has some deeply depressing parts:

    "'People thought I was smoking marijuana,' he said. 'So I told them I was only making something for juju [magic].' Then they said: 'Ah, I see.'"

    That is so sad and pathetic that at the dawn of the 21st century, people still think like this and have no clue what a windmill is.

    Are the people where he is so intellectually incurious? No one offered to help?

    Kid's swimming upstream, apparently...
