    Just read a book, its the best book i've ever read,ever, just thought I'd share it with you guys,

    in a nutshell,

    Gregory David Roberts (author), escapes from a maximum security prison in Australia, goes to Bombay India, lives in a slum, sets up free health care, joins the mafia, starts exporting drugs and passports, acts in Bollywood, fights alongside the mujahdinn in Afghanistan, AND goes home to finish his sentence. He wrote the book twice and it got thrown out by prison guards, this was his third attempt. 100 % true, he just fucks around with names a bit too keep it all legal.

    This shit is mindblowing,
