"Click on the video above to see the story... "

No. Fark you. There's no need for a video that going to take forever to load, will probably buffer at least once, and will probably not work on one of my devices/browsers because of security settings or plug-in issues. Stop being lazy and making every story a goddam video. Let me see still pictures. I know, video doesn't make it so that people notice how nobody has editors anymore, but that's no excuse. Learn to write an actual story, and give me some decent stills of this guy's artwork that I can check out on my own, instead of video that's not detailed enough and probably suffers from a bunch of Mtv edits.

According to the headline, subby claims the guy made the toothpicks, too.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: That actually wasn't the big time he hit, it was the kettlecorn stand at the farmers market


And he's not blind.  And the portraits are not made "solely out of toothpicks".

But other than that, subby's version of reality would have made a made a more interesting article.

Yeah, legally blind and completely blind are two very different things.

I'm probably legally blind in one eye, but I can still see out of it; my peripheral vision is fine.
