>An email about Thor Heyerdahl

“Thor Heyerdahl was the MacGyver of impossible voyages. He could probably have crafted an oceanliner out of tree bark and his own manly sweat. He even burned perfectly good boats of his own making to protest the shit that didn’t fly with him. He was a relentless adventurer and an example to everyone, everywhere. In an age of intolerance, he made friends across all boundaries, exhorted people to travel and learn new tongues, taught the value of our natural environment, and never stopped in his pursuit of knowledge. He was a free spirit who refused to be bound by convention and he made the world a better place.”

Thor was granted a state funeral by Norway when he died aged 87. Makes us all feel very 12th rate! Top dude
