Think you’re self-reliant? This dude built a nuclear fusion reactor in his workshop

Doug Coulter used to build signal processing and radio gadgets for our favorite three-lettered intelligence agencies, but for the past decade or so, Doug’s chosen to explore his engineering interests in the isolated backwoods of Virginia, absent from any pesky boss or sticky bureaucracy.

After tiring of living with a meth head who had a trigger finger itchier than an Appalachian mosquito bite, Doug gave his ex-housemate the boot and confiscated his weapons, thus paving the way for his new found love for gunsmithing. Doug has since open sourced his gun and ammo making techniques on his well-trafficked engineering forum.

But Doug’s most exciting creation is his guerilla-engineered nuclear fusion reactor. Doug’s pursuit for a limitless source of clean and self-sufficient energy takes place in what he calls his “den of creative chaos,” which is essentially a cluttered workshop in the entrance of his home, directly underneath his bedroom.

PS. Sorry about the French subtitles.

    If it quacks like a duck, it may be a duck…. or maybe just a quack.
    I shudder to think that someone wasted their time and money to travel and film this. You can almost hear the last few marbles rolling around in this guy’s head.

    i think the meth head is the guy who claims he built a nuclear reactor.
