How much would you pay for immortality? How about $28? Genius inventor Alex Chiu has made it possible. But after you meet him, you might want to make sure it's not just you and him living in eternity...
Hey Web Drifters. Martin Sargent here. My skin is very dry. I look like a Reptoid. That's because all last week, I was web drifting in the deserts of Arizona. And Jesus and Baby Jesus, what an adventure it was.
We met guys who think the earth is hollow and plan on moving down there by entering a hole in the North Pole, and an old man who doesn't eat or drink yet can lift 900 pounds, and some mystics who took me to a powerful vortex in Sedona with promises that it would heal my horrific injuries. We also went hunting extra-terrestrials and hung out with a real life superhero.
And because of last week's jam-packed web drifting schedule, we've decided to re-release the episode that started it all: A Day in the Eternal Life of Alex Chiu.
Those of you who have watched Infected have gotten to know Alex Chiu. He was on that dearly departed show all the time. You learned about all of his wondrous inventions, from The Machine That Heals The Handicaps and The GorgeousPil to Super Chi Flush and Spell Casting. But the invention that started it all was the Immortality Device: two cheaply made plastic rings with magnets on them that promise to give their wearer eternal life.
This is, in my mind, our greatest episode ever. But maybe that's just because Alex Chiu is my favorite living American. And after you watch this lost episode of Web Drifter, I can pretty much guarantee you'll hold him in as high esteem as I do. Not that I'd want to live with him in eternity...
