Since I was a child I have always been fascinated by how frequently fetishistic documentarians are about not elucidating the money and the material determinants of the story: how does this fellow pay for his books? Where does his food come from?

From Great Big Story’s tale, you’d think the dude’s life is just like when you go to the beach, only 30 years longer.

Apparently he’s manufacturing solar panels and selling them to the occasional tourist.
