One of the many youtube channels I follow is Doug Jacksons channel. He is building a big steel ship in his back yard and shows us his progress on youtube. His plan is so megalomaniac that only therefore its fascinating. In hundreds of youtube videos you can see how he starts with a huge pile of steel and stuff nobody needs, an old school bus to salvage the windows and the engine, a pile of aluminum for the cabin and more junk.
Just random youtube followers from all over the worl help him every now and then. They work for food, a sleeping place and a ticket to the ship when ready. This channel is one of my favorites, maybe because Doug is a very sympathetic guy, or maybe because Betsy, his girlfriend occasionally boob-flashes the cam.
