skodabunny: This reminds me of some farker's recent CSB that they once walked two miles to buy a Stephen King novel. Two miles! Oh the humanity! What a fan that man is! Presumably he took a backpack full of cheeseypuffs and mountain dew to ward off starvation on that heroic quest. Is this the same guy? Is there a new Stephen King book out?


That's a silly question.
Stephen King released two novels, a collection of short stories, six novellas, and the scripts to four movies in the time it took you to write your comment.

FriarReb98: Representative of the unwashed masses: FriarReb98: Representative of the unwashed masses: That's nothing, I once spent an entire weekend in a tent!

Pfft. Week, motherfarka.

Oh yeah? I didn't have a pillow, I had to use a jacket instead! Take that!

I... dear farking Christ, how'd you make it?!



You just have to sew some sleeves onto a vest. But that's not important right now.

Why is everyone giving this guy a hard time? He never called for help; he was reported missing by family. What was he supposed to do when he was found 15 hours later? Tell them to go away and come back another day? Did he ask CTV to publish this complete nonstory? No.

"Oh man, it was really rough! I had to eat a lizard and drink my urine!"

"You were only out here for ten minutes."

satanorsanta: I had to check the weather for the area. It was 75-80 during the day and 65 at night. Perfect camping weather.


Knowing that, the question is how'd he survive being dragged out after only a few hours?

I went 9 months one time with no food or drink, my only life line was a cord and placenta. Does that count? I think I may have drank my own urine during this time, but the memories are so dark.

Stonicus - that's not from lack of body fat, that's from too much sugar in the diet. Very few people have too little body fat to survive for less than a week on nothing but water; most of us can go far longer. It's the insulin resistance developed over time from a high carb diet that makes a person dizzy when he's only gone a few hours without food. It's why fatties are so hungry all the time (I know, I was one until I stopped eating all that processed crap that passes for food nowadays.)

mikdeetx: There are swamps in Ontario? Or really, isn't that just the permafrost melting?


In northern Canada it's generally called muskeg. Very similar to a swamp down south during the summer months.

Oh, the humanity! I hope S&R spared no expense and had every available copter circling the area and tracking dogs on his trail. As a taxpayer, I'm TOTALLY ok with the expense.

TOTALLY.

It's ok, someday it will be ok, but now you know. Always carry an emergency flask of rum with you!
