In this episode of Mr. Curiosity, Joe catches up with the fast-moving Dale Mikolaczyk, AKA Rusty Fender, or whatever his new fake name is.

He's smart, opinionated, charismatic, hard-working and always on the go, whether it be calculating fuel expenditures for NASA's satellites, being a radio personality, or painting his dining room three times in the amount of time it takes to watch a sporting event. 

He's thin, active and healthy, yet loves to consume fast-food on his routine trips to Manhattan and Washington, D.C. to do engineering and science for the masses! 

Hear all about it and how his latest "job" helping a friend at the DMV was a painful experience of-biblical proportions!
