Tired of Life? Can't Think? Consumerism Bumming You out?

Then leave all your responsibilities behind and walk across the US with no job, food, or money like Hobo Nick!

Quote
One day Nick Kleckner decided to go for a walk. However, instead of stopping after a few hours he kept on going. 178 days later and he made it across the USA.

Known as "Hobo Nick", the 25-year-old began his epic 4,023km journey without food, water or money.

Along the way he gained a whole lot of facial hair to rival Forrest and went through five pairs of shoes during the trip, which started in Florida and ended in Huntington Beach, California.

With little access to showers, it wasn't long before he began to smell like "donkey turd".

Also, ITT Rocket will commend our young, liberal friend for getting out of the house for some exercise.

As I read on, it seems that he kept his macbook (assumption), because he kept a blog:

http://worldinstrides.blogspot.co.uk/

Also, no longer do we take vacations or sabbaticals.  We take Gap Years.  Bored of the same routine?  Head on out to the Mongolian Desert to learn how to cook Mongolian Beef.  Stay for the egg rolls.  The sad part is that we all pick up the slack, or the vacancies are filled by those who want to succeed and be prosperous (insert immigrant status here).

Isn't this the guy who wrote a book about his experiences on the road and in it claimed some mystery dude in a truck shot at him or something and the cops found and charged some random asshole with attempted murder because of it?

At least he's not playing Xbox and suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency.
Yes, that is me in court with my enormous penis.
