How the fark did he raise 125,000 pounds working holiday jobs?
 
2013-10-14 07:53:38 PM
It's cost him £125,000 which he's funded through university holiday jobs and work in bars and hostels.

got the bug 5 years ago, he's 24 that would make him a googleaire by the time he's 27.

/and no mention of or thanks to the people that made it all possible for him, like his parents?

Selling drugs?

maybe he's a really really REALLY good prostitute?

Meh, I'd be more impressed if he had visited them in alphabetical order.

Came here to ask that question myself.

You're forgetting the jobs he had at bars and hostels and the trust fund they didn't mention.

Who are the Britons?

I see I'm not the only one who's curious about his money-making skills.

Maybe he's really really REALLY good at suckering gullible journos?

Proof or it didn't happen. And doubly so proof of the "youngest" claim, because that's even harder to believe. Far more likely that some government official's crotchfruit has done it first, and younger.

Surely you know us? We live in Grate Briton, and we're famous for the quality of our Britosh food.

/yes, I know Britons is correct

Proof? Fact-checking? Ain't got no time for that in a 24 hour news cycle!

It's nice work if you can get it, and if you get it, won't you tell me how?

So, assuming he somehow funded four years of university through other means, he apparently earned around £60k a year before taxes. Which is more amazing than him visiting all countries on earth.

He must be from a rich family if he can spend that much money just to travel. I can't imagine any normal job that would allow you to survive and travel the entire world with pay that isn't corporate executive level.

Are people who still wear tribal stuff being kept that way for tourism purposes?

Some of them on the tourism green sun, some not so much, usually you see a mishmash of tribal and weird second run or other side of the event clothing in the third world on the lower classes. It would be really easy to check if he visited them all through passport stamps. That would take 10 minutes though some countries will let you cheat and stamp you at overseas embassies.

The funding for this seems weird though, my guess is child of wealth combined with odd jobs. My 18-22 years I made some pretty decent money in the 20k range halfassing it as a bar tender during the summers while having a full time job in the military. Provided this guy was good with some connections and desire he could have cleared that and more

These people are all attention whores. Also speaking of the dancing guy.
