I started by buying a few advertising rulers here and there; yard sales, eBay, and the occasional antiques store when they weren’t charging $20/stick. I figured that I would use them as wainscoting in a small room once I found my forever home. People would give them to me as gifts around the holidays. Two homes later, there was some very boring pine paneling and needed something. I still have about 100 yardsticks left. Maybe for a vacation house some day

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
