Yesterday I saw a very novel video on the internet. It was about an American pencil sharpener, his name is David Rees and nobody else in the world dedicates himself to this profesion. He charges between 11 and 35 dollars for each sharpened pencil. In addition, he wrote a manual where he explains how to sharpen the pencils in an efficient way. His business is unique and has many followers.

I'll be right with you...
