Have you ever sat there and thought “i may not be the most badass, but im certainly pretty cool”. Of course not, you wouldn’t fool yourself with fascinations of grandier like that. But get thoroughly prepared to knock your ass back a few more chapters in the “Badass Book of Notable Badasses” (chapter 1: Me). A Mr. Aleksander Doba Kayaked his ass across the Atlantic ocean. He battled heat (equatorial, since thats the region), 20 foot swells, and oh yeah did i forget to mention he was 64 fuckin years old.
“After 98 days, 23 hours, 42 minutes at sea, Doba and his custom 23-foot-long, 39-inch-wide human-powered kayak landed at Acaraú, a city on Brazil’s northeast coast. The trip covered some 3,320 miles in all, and Doba became only the fourth known person to accomplish such a feat, and the very first to do it nonstop.”
Yeah that’s right hang your head in shame, a senior citizen hand rowed himself for 3,320 miles and finished in just under a hundred days. You’d bitch about driving 10 miles away to go to a supermarket, and this old man is catching his drinking water when it rains. *Sigh* some of us are just to Badass to be understood by this world.
