Despite Big Media’s insistence that they’d be canceled, the summer Olympics are running full-tilt in pandemic Japan, with apps and ads that seem hesitant to Celebrate the games as in days of yore. The message to “follow your dreams” still accompanies high-gloss promotions from whichever advertisers were brave enough to follow thru on their Olympic threat – all you need is some kicks, supportive parents, and GEICO insurance, and you too can come in 7th in the steeplechase.

You gots to admire the cojones of this dude, who’s not letting skill, failure, or reality get in the way of his plans to wander the east coast. Let’s start a GoFundMe to get this fidiot a homemade airplane, so when he’s flying to Tallahassee and accidentally piles into one of the Keys it’ll save the Coast Guard a trip.
