A Living Wizard

“Wizards stay in the dark, but that’s only in the fictions, or just because they are not KEITH.”

During the World Cup matches in the summer of 2018, KEITH along with his apprentice, or his best friend, Even Ni, predicted three matches include the final match, by using the magical tool — Tarot Card, which KEITH has discovered his own way of divination.

The Keithy Lovers

"People think everything KEITH does seems unbelievable, however, they can link themself to be a part of the legend. They will be remembered.”

In November 2017, while KEITH was traveling the Islamic Republic of Iran, enjoying afternoon tea at a hotel in Isfahan. A good friend of KEITH asked if he could have a shirt with his face on. KEITH then spend his afternoon tea time on designing his first self-feature shirt to satisfy this friend.

KEITH put the draft on Instagram story, everybody seemed to be fanatical about the shirt with has KEITH’s face. Soon, KEITH figured out how to kill this boring afternoon — by creating a spiritual shirt for his fans.

The Keithy Lover Shirt is made by overlaying four pictures: Keith’s selfie, which was taken just a couple of days ago, when he finished showering at Doha International Airport; A photograph of Paris and Eiffel Tower, which was KEITH’s favorite photography back in the days. A portray feature KEITH’s signature burning-red sunglasses from Louis Vuitton, which kids at school desperately wanted to try it on. Then last, the famous Keithy cover featuring his signature shirt.

Later the school community exploded, students lined up to get the out-of-stock Keithy Lover Shirt, so did some teachers. Later KEITH designed the Keithy Lover Shoes, and a special edition of Keithy Lover Shirt featuring the Deffenbackers.

To keep its scared spirit, KEITH later stoped producing the shirt. Thus, those who have a KEITH lover shirt became the ones who people are jealous of. And people still wear the Keithy Lover Shirt once in a while, just to remember his legend.

(In Feb 2018, KEITH took a group picture with some of his friends featuring the Keithy Lover Shirt)

The Turkish Maze

“You will get power once you realize you have to survive.”

In March 2017, KEITH travelled to the Republic of Turkey during his spring break vacation. He toured around Istanbul, then he had some of his friends joined him to discover Cappadocia.

Cappadocia is in the middle of Turkey, known for its dynamic landscape and, the most famous hot-air-balloon on earth. KEITH and his friends started at a cave hotel inside of the Goreme National Park. The weather was not good during their staying, the company had to cancel the morning sunrise hot-air-balloon flight which they originally booked, sadly they are leaving on the next day.

It seemed that God would like to do something to satisfy theses three teenagers, on the day they were leaving, the hotel called their room in the early morning, noticing them that the weather allows flying today. Hence KEITH rebooked his flight to the next day, and his friends switched to a later flight. After enjoying the dramatic hot-air-balloon trip in the morning, KEITH and his friends had plenty of time to enjoy more of the fantastic landscape.

These three teenagers rent two ATVs (All-Terrain Vehicle), they drove to south-west directions. By using google’s GPS chip, they were able to know where they wanted to go.

Teenagers went on mountains, rocks and flat ground, they took a lot of pictures of this moonscape in Eurasia. They had a lot of fun, KEITH was driving in the front and leading the way, the other two teenagers were couple, they then following KEITH’s heal. After they drove around a canyon, they met a crossing. KEITH was chasing a small river, went into a jungle.

Jungle driving was cool and fun, as the small river went into the jungle, it became a streamlet. KEITH was so excited of experiencing driving in such an environment, however, after KEITH had gone into the jungle for a while, KEITH looked back and did not see his friends.

KEITH kept driving, he thought they were going somewhere else and he could catch them later when he had got out. The streamlet was getting smaller and smaller, KEITH was literally driving on the streamlet. When KEITH had passed a group of rocks, the vehicle was not moving anymore.

The vehicle started sinking into the ground, KEITH realized he drove into a marsh, but luckily it was only on the edge, so the dirt was not that loose. However, half of the vehicle’s head had already sinked into the dirt, and the back side started sinking too.

KIEITH jumped off the vehicle and moved a bunch of big rocks to stick under the back wheels, to prevent it from sinking deeper. KEITH then tried restating the engine and pull back, however, the wheels were only rolling on nothing.

There was no way for one high school kid to pull the ATV back to the ground, he had to find somebody to help him. However, when KEITH pulled out his phone, there was not service around him. Yeah, how could you expect there is service in the middle of a jungle.

KEITH knew how far away he drove when he got into the jungle and he knew how complicated the landscapes was, there was really now way he could walked out of the jungle without that vehicle. And the sky started getting darker, he did not know what kind of animals he would expect in the middle of the jungle in Turkey. The longer he waited, the less chance he could survive that night.

Keith freaked out, he tried full engine on the vehicle again and again, he tried to put rocks on different side of the vehicle again and again. But the more he tried, the deeper the vehicle sinked. It seemed like he was stuck there for fate.

After 30 or 40 minuets struggling, KEITH gave up. He sat on the ground, put out his phone, there was still no signal. KEITH decided that he would do everything to pull himself out of this jungle. He went to the back of the vehicle, tried to pull the vehicle back, however the vehicle was too heavy and was sinked too deep to pull back. KEITH freaked out, he then walked straight to the front side of the vehicle.

KEITH put his hands into the marsh, grabbed the bumper and put it up. Surprisedly, KEITH successfully put the head of the vehicle up in the air. KEITH then moved quickly before he started sinking into the marsh, HE held the bumper, walked around to move the head of the vehicle a 180˚ turn, so the front wheels of the vehicle was back on the hard ground. KEITH then went back on his seat, drove out of the jungle.

TURKEY

Republic of

Boxing with two kangaroos

A Chinese proverb goes, “Newborn calves are not afraid of tigers.” Well, KEITH practically reflected this phrase on himself.

When KEITH first travelled abroad on his own, he chose Australia. One of his best friend lives in Sydney and KEITH always says he wanted to visit. KEITH and his friend spend five days in Sydney, then they traveled together to Melbourne.

A couple of days later, KEITH’s friend returned to Sydney to continue his school, KEITH then traveled to Canberra by himself, the capital city of Australia. KEITH regraded himself on the first they he arrived, Canberra, the capital city sounds like a cool place but is indeed in the middle of no where.

He stayed at an airbnb, the local host alerted KEITH that there will be wild animals showing up randomly on the street, especially in the night time. However, KEITH did not want to wast time in his first trip to Australia. He went out to the market place, which was a street not far away from the house, he enjoyed afternoon tea and dinner.

The sky started getting dark, dramatic dusk and sunset started taking place. Keith went a bit further away, and chose another way to go home, just to experience being in the middle of nowhere.

KEITH started heading back, it took him about 30-40 minus until he could see his airbnb, the house, which was on the horizon.

Then suddenly, Keith saw a big shuttering shadow jumped in front of him, about five meters from where KEITH was standing. KEITH went up and see what was going on, then he saw two giant kangaroos that were taller than him, standing still and gazing at KEITH’s eyes.

In the darken evening, those two pairs of eyes, shining red in the dramatic atmosphere, were freezing the air. Every steps KEITH takes, the kangaroos follow up. They stand face to face with each other about five minutes, Then KEITH started trying running away from these two monsters, however, they did quit chasing up KEITH. Maybe they were just looking for fun, but they freaked out KEITH anyway.

The freaked out KEITH started getting angry, he started imitating chimpanzee, thumping his chest, bellowing to those two kangaroos and started running toward those two giant kangaroos. Then those two animals ran away from KEITH’s threatening.

This experience did not affect Keith in the next couple of days while touring Canberra. However, Keith was a bit afraid afterward, when his friends told him that kangaroos usually kick people to death in Australia.

The Missing Two Millions

“My business rule number one: Never Trust Your Dad’s Instinct, always ask his idea and do the opposite. —KEITH”

Keith started doing business and investment since he was about seven or eight. First he asked his father to open an online stock-exchange account, then he started doing online business (he was defrauded $50,000 on his first night), then he moved on to Alibaba. Later, with a bit of savings, he started investing friends and relatives’s business with a huge return.

After 2008, when the whole world was recovering from the Second Great Depression, which did not effect the PRC that much, China’s property industry started skyrocketing again. Hainan, an island province in the southern China, started boiling its property industry due to several new state policies.

A friend of KEITH’s father, who was in charge of a large development project asked him onboard. KEITH’s father convinced KEITH to invest the majority of his from his flat wallet. Year by year, the price of the property in Hainan province almost doubled, the amount KEITH had invested became almost $2 M, and the money KEITH’s father had invested became almost $20 M.

In 2013, the friend of KEITH’s father suicided, jumped from the top of a building, due to his high pressure from debts. Thus, the development project stranded. KEITH’s father did not spend much time on tracing the money since he has to do something more important than that $20 M. However, $2 M was still a big number for Littlekeithy.

The Traitor

“You can be nice to people, forever. If someone start offending you, you keep your politeness at the first time. But if that person offends you again, dispose when necessary.

In KEITH’s second year of junior high, his house gate was sealed by seccotine three times in a week. First KEITH and his family did not know how did it. Finally, KEITH successfully extracted the fingerprints left on the lock, and they were able to bring the criminal in. However, the criminal turned out to be the rival Keith had back in elementary, who betrayed KEITH’s organization.

Background:

When KEITH was leading his organization back in elementary (which is mentioned in The Super Agent Kids), he had a secretary who was just one level below his best friend. He was known as “Chinchilla”, because he pets a chinchilla. Chinchilla was extremely good and helpful, he was one of the best in KEITH’s rope down training, gunshot training, and was one of the few people who were able to use handheld smoke-bomb, flash-bomb, teargas, and was authorized to use the electronic bomb trigger. (for details, read Bomb The House )

Chinchilla’s high-power lithium battery brought the organization a huge win on the electronic bomb trigger system. However, one day Chinchilla expressed to take back the technology, hence, he started to against the organization especially KEITH. Chinchilla divulge intelligence of the location of the rooftop base, so the police was able to takeover. Chinchilla stole weapons and unused bombs, and used his improvised bomb trigger to light up smoke bombs, and threw flash bomb and teargas when the police was going to takeover the facility. The polices gave up eventually just because they did not want to wast time on playing with a kid. However, Chinchilla also used the bombs to defend while other members of the organization was trying to get into the facility.

Months later, Captain Keith led a group of kids caught Chinchilla, KEITH’s best friend took over him while KEITH was interrogating Chinchilla, to prevent him from using extreme measure. After that, the Chinchilla chapter officially closed. When KEITH and his best friend stepped into junior high, as they started getting busier and busier on school stuffs, the organization started fading away, after a while, this chapter became a legend once existed in the history book. Until…

Story:

When the door was sealed for the first time, KEITH and his mother did not have many ideas of why and who did this, however, they had to call a locksmith to break in and rebuilt a new lock, so they could get inside of the house. Unluckily, the door was sealed on the next day, again. So they had to call the locksmith again, break it, and put on a new lock.

This brought KEITH’s attention, KEITH remember that a couple of years ago, KEITH taught kids how to open a lock and how to seal a lock. This suspicion led KEITH to Chinchilla, however, KEITH was not sure if Chinchilla was really playing childish again for the rival back in elementary.

KEITH and his mom went to the video room, look at the CCTV record in the elevators,, again and again, however, they did not find anything. KEITH speculated that Chinchilla might used the stairs instead of the elevator to avoid CCTV, and he seems to know the routine of this family.

Not to KEITH’s surprise, Chinchilla hit KEITH up on QQ (a popular online communication app in China), he admitted his action and was rampant by saying: “enjoy it, I will come back.”

“This is what happens when your loyal friend is using what you’ve taught to against you.,” said KEITH’s mother. Chinchilla seemed to be trained smart enough to avoid all kinds of tracking, however, KEITH was still the master, so was his mom.

KEITH’s mom was able to track the IP address which Chinchilla used to send the message. It was from a PC in his home. However, a snap shot of an online conversation was not enough for the police to catch him. KEITH decided to installed a micro camera inside of the peep hole so there would be a video statement next then when Chinchilla acts again. However, the video captured him with a mask on his face.

KEITH and his mom had to call the locksmith again, to break the lock and put on a new one. The police detective was helpless as well, as this kind of annoying action is not big enough to address an arrest warrant.

It was the third time in the week, Chinchilla’s action burned KEITH on fire, KEITH would not allow people do this to insult him. “Believe me, I taught you all of this, so I know your weakness. Don’t forget I am still the master,” KEITH muttered.

The equipment KEITH used to extract fingerprints

He went back to his room, and took a ninhydrin sprayer, along with high-viscosity magnetic powder and a fingerprint tape. A couple of minutes later, KEITH extracted a bunch of fingerprints from the handle, under the detective’s witness. KEITH then compared those fingerprints with himself’s and his mom’s, then he found some unknown fingerprints.

“I taught you how to hide your face but never taught you to clean your fingerprint after you’ve done some dirty shits,” KEITH smiled. The case was not big enough for the police to do fingerprint comparing, however, KEITH still kept his database in his archive. KEITH used to take everybody’s fingerprint when they first joined the organization, after comparing, Keith was sure those fingerprints belonged to Chinchilla. Now Keith had got evidence, however, he expected Chinchilla to come back soon.

This time, KEITH set a infrared ray detection at the exist of the stairs, so once somebody crosses by, the machine will send an alert to the receiver, KEITH’s mom.

The next week, KEITH came home from school, mom told Keith they she had caught Chinchilla, mom goes: “The alert was send and I went to the door, observing him thought the peep hole, he was with a male friend. I ran out and caught him, and his friend ran away, left him alone. I said,’whatever you and Keith had back in two years ago, it is all over right now. KEITH has never done this kind of things on you haven’t him? KEITH has taken your fingerprint and videography on your previous actions, since I have those evidence right now and you are on my hand, I could easily take you to the police and you are old enough to put in the juvenile prison. But I am giving you a chance to be good.”

Bomb The House

“When curiosity meets unprofessional, it may cause something really serious. Again, never trust your dad.”

Every boy has had a CS dream. Back in elementary, when CS video game was spreading the whole world, spy movies washing the screens, KEITH and his friends were inspired by the charm of a battle field, in imagination. They started running their self-created missions, such as surprise attacking ceremonies.

As a fifth grader, who just started taking chemistry class, KEITH figured out making gunpowder by mixing potassium nitrate. With mixing sodium bicarbonate to limit KNO3’s chemical instability, along with dye, KEITH was able to produce smoke bomb, flash bomb, tear bomb and even a real bomb (however, he has never produced one, yet). By using simple electricity and programming, KEITH was able to produce a professional trigger as well.

At the first time of producing, KEITH dad insisted taking care of the mixing process as he thought it would be too dangerous for a 10-year-old kid. However, KEITH’s dad neglected the temperature of container, which caused a huge fire and an explosion of the container. The whole kitchen along with the gas stove went on fire, and the living room was not lucky enough to escape from being partially destroyed.

After the accident, KEITH redeveloped the process of making a smoke bomb, by using temperature-limited container to prevent potential explosion while processing.

(After the story spread out, KEITH got a new title, known as “the bomb psycho”)


In Keith’s sophomore year in high school, his English teacher asked students to make a tutorial video. Thus it was the first time Keith ever officially introduced the process of making a smoke bomb.

The Super Agent Kids

“The solution to a death-causing problem always causes death, but there is a chance to survive.”

Back in elementary, KEITH used to lead a group of kids to do excitements, such as gunfight with security guards, spying intelligence at the central control room, bombing police facilities, and today’s protagonist — rope-down from a skyscraper.

One day after school, KEITH decided to rope down on his own, just to kill time. However, the rope accidentally tied itself a taut knot around his belay/rappel device, KEITH was stuck in the middle of the air, 95 meters (312 feet) from the ground.

After struggling for a while, KEITH decided not to let himself die in this embarrassing way. He untied himself from the harness, thus he lost his only protection but was free from the rope. He wrapped the rope around his waist and legs, then slowly pull himself down about five meters (16.5 feet) so he could reach to a window. He broke into the apartment, luckily nobody was home.

The next day, the billboard in the community says:

“!!! Thief broke into 31st floor apartment through window !!!”

The Genius Cryptographer

“KEITH is never a straight A student, in fact, he’s grade rank used to stay at the bottom of the 56 students in the class. His math may not be good, at school, but his math is really good in practice.

Kids in China used to buy redemption cards to top up their online game account, KEITH was not an exception, he loved video games.

In a Saturday afternoon, when KEITH’s dad was at home, after competing gunshot with money betted, they needed to decided something to do to kill this boring afternoon. Somehow, they decided to play math.

Little KEITH when downstairs to the vendor machine, he bought four QQ coin (Tencent) redemption cards with continuous card number. Then they started trying to figure out the function of the passcode which is randomly generated.

Surprisedly, it did not take them too long. After two or three hours struggling, they came out with a conclusion: the code was positive generated with arithmetic progression in hexadecimal after reverse alphabet to numbers.

KEITH successfully redeemed two cards, and later was stopped by his father due to ethical code.
