    This is Richard Swanson, age 42.

    He has decided to dribble a soccer ball from Seattle to Brazil to promote soccer playing among poor youths in developing countries.

    This photo was posted last Tuesday.

    On Monday, he posted this video:

    [video=youtube;TOF58kgzBB8]https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TOF58kgzBB8[/video]


    Yesterday morning, he tweeted a photo of his breakfast.

    Then he posted this video.

    [video=youtube;Vq-StB9mGe4]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq-StB9mGe4[/video]

    Soon after posting that video, he was struck and killed by a pickup truck while walking on Highway 101.

    Another Darwin Award Winner!

    Didn't even make it out of the U.S. and they drive much crazier in Central/South America than they do here.

    I love how people think this promotes something. No one will care or pick up soccer because this guy is walking there.

    And what was this asshole going to do when he reached said impoverished areas?

    Asshole: "See this, kids? It's a soccer ball. You play soccer with it like this!"

    *demonstrates fundamentals*
    *organizes quick pick-up game with the local kids*

    Hispanic Kid: "Gee, that was fun, Meester. Can we have the ball?"

    Asshole: "Nope, sorry...it's the only one I have. Well, see ya!"

    Hispanic Kid: "I HOPE YOU GET HEET BY A TRUCK, PINCHE MADRE PUTO!!!"
