I was skeptical as I read the article, but when I noticed he'd taken the time to install a kickstand, that item pushed this story right into the "Bull****" pile.

For his next trick, he will take a Pony, an Octopus, and a case of Beer, and build himself the Perfect Woman to ride out of the ocean.....

Pretty neat to be stranded in the desert and have an arc welder right there.

Maybe B.A. Barackus showed him how to make a welder out of a Bic Clic, a little gasoline, and a can of cat food?

If he's that clever and that well supplied with tools why didn't he just fix the car?

Kinda like the professor on Gilligan's island.

If you can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't you fix a boat?

Personally, I would have just spent my remaining days banging Ginger and Mary Ann (maybe through in Mrs Howell once a month for something kinky) and wouldn't have even bothered trying to get off the island.
