I am exhausted...
Having spent the last couple of hours wading through this thread...
Fools names and fools faces - follow the money
. Without notoriety there is no story. Without a story there is no monetizing.
Who's to say it is all not just carefully crafted to stay in the papers.
The best part is that this thread is way more interesting than any book or tv show this guy might produce. And it's free - LOL
Paying fines for transgressions against governments? All part of the production costs. Indomitable spirits, vikings, hells angels, the underdogs? International kidnapping? A low speed chase across the antarctic to Chile
? Interpol? International diplomacy being tested" Against big government
protagonists? This guy has his audience and is stupid like a fox...
If he makes money
and has fun doing it - good on him.
If the big government
bureaucrats spank him, take him to court, fine him and tell him not to do it again - good on them. And lucky for him...
As opposed to the Ukranians "maybe" being lost
becuase they didnt check in for a couple of days? Which story are you reading?
