    I read that a while back. Great story! If you liked that, try this story about a scout who built a nuclear breeder reactor in his backyard shed.

    That's really long...Maybe I'll finish reading it later. I've read up to part 7, but I'm still wondering if endorsing the check with a smiley face would cause him some problems...

    That was hilarious. I'd never heard of him before, but I've got a lot of respect for him now!
