Meet Ritchie Davis.
Ritchie is a 15-year-old kid from Florida. Ritchie is also an honorary Hot Pipe for life.

He did what most of us have always dreamed of doing, but never quite mustered up the courage to do. He simply sacked up and did it.

Ritchie stole a bus. Twice. And after he stole it, he drove the bus route, making stops and collecting money from passengers. He drove the bus 12 miles.


"I drove that bus better than most of the LYNX drivers could," said Ritchie to law enforcement officers after they arrested him for grand theft auto and driving without a license. "There isn't a scratch on it. I know how to start it, drive it, lower it, raise it."

Give him the Nobel Prize. Give him an Oscar. Give him an honorary degree in "Blatant Disregard for the Rule Whenever the Fuck He Feels Like It." From Harvard.

What balls! What unbreakable resolve! Ritchie steals buses like a mule plows a field: Doggedly, with a high threshold for pain. The first time he stole a bus, it happened to be a tour bus, and he drove the tour group around.
