Blind Squirrel Finds Acorn
We were the first to say he couldn’t do it and we’re the first to say we were wrong, but our opinion that Reid Stowe is a complete and total nutter remains unmoved, and if you go by his writing, that’s an understatement. But we can’t deny that he kept his concrete barge afloat for a thousand days worth of drifting, which was his major goal. That’s something.
And that something is a dubious achievement, a record that no one wanted and no one cares about. The only thing that anyone cared about was Stowe himself, in that train-wreck bystander kinda way. Now that’s interesting. So the kook on a garbarge barge survives, manages to not sink, actually stays at sea for a thousand days…but can he really claim anything other than a meaningless and empty title? Um…no.
Void Ho, Bitch.
And of course, if you haven’t been to the legendary 1000 day thread (and who hasn’t), then please, please do. Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction – and far more entertaining.
