The Man Minute

The Quest for Eternal Glory

The Man Minute was created to fill a need for real information about business. When super human and half Neanderthal Eddie Sparks got on probation for a DUI, he decided to travel around the world. Determined to be the 97th person to complete every country in the world meant he would be keeping a clear head and his pants on. After staying sober throughout most of central & south America for his own personal safety, Sparks’ massive ego decided he could keep himself occupied by accepting the quest of turning average men into business craftsman. The Man Minute is a testimony of how math and mathematics alone could be the only deterring factor of financially handling the cost of world travel. This page is here for those few who have benefited from and are addicted to the most sadistic thing that the most interesting man in the world has ever done. Bwahahaha. Traveling roughly cost $100 a day and somewhere on this page should be a running total of the financial requirements to finish the world as well as other fun facts.
