Crazy vs. Wild
So I'm intrigued by the Discovery Channel's show, Man vs. Wild. This guy (named Bear - how appropriate!) goes into the wild in various countries around the world and puts his survival skills to the test. He's been in Siberia, the Amazon, and the Sahara. For tonight's show he's in Australia trying to survive in the Northern Territory. He's already eaten a spider and killed a snake by grabbing its head by his teeth and breaking his neck. He's almost fallen off a cliff and was thisclose to getting eaten by an alligator because he climbed up a tree over a lake to get a closer look.
Alright, this guy is obviously crazy and is doing insane stuff for TV. But that's ok because he has a camera guy and probably a van of guys waiting in the bushes in case he needs medical attention.
Now, let's think about Shannon trying to survive in the Australian outback. I wonder how long I would last before getting eaten by a pack of jackals?
I guess that's why I don't have my own show called Shan vs. Wild. It would last one episode!
If you were stranded in the Australian outback what 5 things would you want to have with you?
Here's my list:
2. Those army meals Kristi always had at her house
3. A knife
5. Would anyone hate me if I said my Kindle?
