Some Serious Survival Skills

Has anyone seen the show, Naked and Afraid on the Discovery Channel?
I know, it's a little weird.
Two strangers have to survive for 21 days in crazy environments, with no food, water, etc., and of clothes.

I'm usually all about a good survival show, butt (no pun intended) I can't understand why the TV networks want to add this element of naked-ness.

I've seen a few episodes, but I don't watch it you can't judge me, K?

All the contestants are given a Personal Survival Rating at the beginning and end of the show based on their skill set and how they developed over the course of 21 days.
The fun part is you can go to the website and take a quiz and get your own Personal Survival Rating.
So because I'm awesome and I live a glamorous fast-paced life...I logged onto the Discovery Channel website and took the quiz.
...I won't blame you if you judge me now.

Here's my score:

3 out of 10.
THREE out of TEN.

Well, Discovery Channel, perhaps your quiz didn't enable me to put my full repertoire of survival skills on display, because believe me...they're there.

For example:

-I can braid hair.
I'm pretty sure that would come in handy when I need to make a roof for my shelter and like, braid leaves together or something.

-I was a cheerleader in high school.
So I can yell for help really loud.
...and there's a little #throwbackthursday for your Monday evening.

-I use proper grammar.
So when we need to write messages in the sand for help, they'll be spelled correctly, have the right punctuation and the correct form of "your."
Some people probably never made it off an island because their SOS message didn't make sense.

-I'm a really good snuggler.
So we'll totally be warm at night.  
Just ask Gunther...

-I'm also pretty good at Marco Polo.
So when we're in a survival situation with no cell phones and I can't call you to find out where you are should you decide to wander too far from the shelter, I'm almost positive I could track 
you down anyway.

-Animals love me.
I'm sure I could get a wild hyena to warm up to me.

-I've watched a crap-ton of hunting shows on TV, so I totally know how to track an animal and 
kill it for dinner.
You just have to like, be quiet and stuff. And aim well too.
Easy peasy.

You can't tell me all these survival skills only warrants a 3 out of 10 survival rating.
I'm the next Bear Grylls. 
I just know it.

  1. HAHA I would only survive if I could be with Bear in the wild..that is a hot stud!

    1. Unique Outdoor Survival Skills

      Don't you find it ironic that even with all this scandalously expensive education, people today know so little?

      If they can't even fix their car, how are they supposed to handle a - let's say - long term food shortage?

      You can't possibly hope they'd know how to garden and produce their own food, save seeds for next year, and use leaves plowed under to fertilize the soil.

      Not to mention trapping, catching, skinning and cooking a rabbit...

      These may seem advanced outdoor survival skills now, but back in the days, they were merely called "Living".

      Watch this short video now and discover a set of unique and fantastic survival skills used and perfected by our ancestors.

      Don't wait for the next crisis to hit and live to regret you had the chance to learn these skills but didn't.
