There is something absolutely intriguing about this guy. I admire his cunning and his talents at learning things for himself.
He is certainly not afraid of a challenge. He is not beholden to the rules. He seems like a genuine free spirit.

This guy is a hero to me. I just hope the "system" doesn't break his spirit.
