Day 175

Because we all need some genuine good news stories now and then, I thought I’d bring people’s attention to Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell.  They were winners of season 21 of the reality show The Amazing Race, but what was most amazing about them winning was how they did it.  They walked the whole race with rolling suitcases, they were almost eliminated due to plane problems, and most amazingly they were these geeky boys, older than most contestants, and who never seemed to fight – this last quality is particularly remakable if you’re familiar with couples who come on the show.  

But the feel good story continues.  They were already part time goat farmers in upstate New York with an obscure cable television show, but unable to quit both their jobs an farm full time.  Their winnings (the prize is one million dollars) allowed them to do that.  But it gets better.  They decided to also invest their money and give out funds to other small farms!  This article suggests they are singlehandedly saving the American farm.  This might be hyperbolic, but they’re certainly doing their part and setting a standard for other people.  If more millionaires had this mindset, capitalism wouldn’t be such a brutal and cruel system.  

Geeky gay boys rock.
