Interesting video

Not sure if it's been posted before, but I came across this earlier and thought that it was pretty cool.

RIBase
I saw this on the original thread. It caught my attention and I've watched it many times since. I think that it's a testimony to the human condition - we're all so different and yet we share a common bond. Frank seems to be a special person, odd certainly, but driven in a way that few of us are. I can only admire him and wonder at his life. The people who support him must also be good sorts, for lots of reasons.

As a sidebar, I like Frank's RIB. It made me think outside the box.

Thanks Frank.

Thanks Frank.

You put my thoughts into words , so thanks for that
The world is a better place for eccentrics and we seem to be less tolerant of them .

I have not seen this before but know one or two land based equivalents where I live and there are too many fifty bob millionaires that turn their nose up at them

Hes free to do his thing, and coincident caught in his world.

Many may be many think, poor man, alone by his own...and exact these
are may be trapped inside family, job....not brave enough to do what they
really want to do.
Im sure hes longing for to lay down in some warm arms of a woman,
family.....and also sure, that he has to go back to his live after a while.

Hats off for him, and hats off for humans who live lifes to support
other humans!!! (Would like to just give him a big hug.)
