I've learned a few things watching Discovery's survival series. First, that Leatherman tool (used by Survivorman's Les Stroud) I've been carrying around for years, and distributing as Christmas gifts to friends when I couldn't think of anything else to buy them, could save their life. Who knew!?
Disclaimer: this post is in no way meant to denigrate the manly men of Discovery, who are seriously cool - especially when balancing on helicopter skids 9,000 feet above Mexico's Copper Canyon, and/or throwing up after eating Moroccan goat testicles, urinating all over their shirts and wrapping it around their heads to stay cool, or playing their harmonicas in their lonely, makeshift shelters.
