    I dont know how to post the article "Someone please help me" but the Barefoot Bandit is a theif that has been running from the police for quite some time now and has made his way through the united states and into the Bahama's via stolen cars, planes and a boat. I dont know but for some reason I kinda wish they wouldnt have caught him he had a pretty cool story. But thats the way it goes when you brake the law.

    With Hollywood's lack of original screenplays a movie about his adventures will be out next year.

    Producers are already trying to buy his story. He wont be able to spend the money though but his mom will be a filthy rich woman.

    I could teach you to start an airplane and get it off the ground in 30 mins or less. With a book- You could teach yourself in slightly more time.
    Landing that bitch successfully is FAR harder. So I'm not as impressed about the plane thing as some folks are.

    Spending 2 years running from LEOs is pretty wild tho...Good on him and good thing they got him too!!

    Ya thats true, It seems more amaizing to me because I have never flown a plane before. It did say he crash landed every plane he stole, but man that kid was either really stupid or had some serious balls.

    Hopefully some of those movie rights dollars go back to the people he stole from.

    I gotta say, after watching those idiots waterslide into that empty pool, the fact that this kid taught himself to get a plane off the ground makes it look like he cured cancer.

    His mom is a real piece of work. His family life is total crap and his mom will probably end up profiting of her shitty parenting skills.
