If you travel a lot, you’ve most likely ran into a tourist scam or two. It could have been a taxi that overcharged you by taking the longer route, a pickpocket at a busy market or even a fake tour guide who offered you a great deal on a tour and then ran off with your money never to be seen again. All of these scams sound pretty bad but sadly there are plenty more of them out there that you probably never even heard of.

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?
