Greg Packer likes standing in lines so much that there is some speculation he may be British. The man who was first in line for the last few iPhones (and the iPad) is back and ready for the launch of the iPhone 4. This time, his single-minded dedication to being the first person in line for all significant Apple launches has garnered corporate support.

Gazelle, a gadget recycling company is paying him $250 a day to stand in line, and covering the cost of his iPhone. In this Mashable video you can see Packer all kitted out in their gear. Gazelle has even provided Greg with an assistant to go fetch necessities.

This whole silly story just goes to prove a very important point about success. Never give up, embrace your craziest side, and eventually some company will pay money for your madness. Or you'll end up in prison.
