The African kid who made a windmill generator on The Daily Show.

Holy crap, this guy is smart. Not only did he make a windmill generator for his house out in the middle of the goddamn African desert, he also made (with two nails and some wire and a ball point pen spring) a circuit-breaker to control short circuits!

Fuck, man. I want to buy this guy a whole machine shop to take back to Africa with him. I can't wait to see what he could do with that!
