So make sure you eat.
David Carradine starred in the 1976 film, Bound For Glory, in which he played Woody Guthrie in Depression-era Texas. In one scene, Woody was out on the road, hitch-hiking, and a rich couple pulled over and picked him up. As they drove along, Guthrie in the back, he listened silently to the rich couple discussing all manner of rich people "hard times".

Finally, after many miles and never acknowledging Woody's presence in the backseat, the rich man looked in the rear view mirror and asked Guthrie what he thought about all of these horrible times.

Carradine thought for a moment, then leaned his head up into the front seat between the wealthy couple and said, "I think... the more you eat, the more you ****."

Cut to Guthrie standing back out on the side of the road, rich couple speeding away, leaving him in a cloud of dust.

Made up a bunch of 8x11 laminates with that phrase, go in our packs & have abunch at home.

Laminates make great food prep areas in the field, clean organizing spots etc and are “fun” place settings at home.

Could post them around the property when things go south, along with standard no trespass signage...

(ETA: I used to believe in that phrase because it is often mentioned, even in reputable survival handbooks, so it must be true. Right? I never realized how dangerous a wrong belief can be until I read many accounts of how much--for good or bad--the body can "believe" what the mind believes. This could be debilitating in a survival situation.)


"Dead in 3 days without water" simply ain't true. I and many others can personally verify this.

Too often, the body believes what the mind believes. There have been numerous cases of this phenomena. For example radical remission of cancer patients sent home to die, yet lived; mothers who have lifted seemingly impossible objects, such as a truck, to free their children; and people who have survived for days without water, even in grueling situations.

According to Randall K. Packer, a professor of biology at George Washington University, a person can go without water about a week (shorter, if dealing with heat, etc.). He based his statement on observations of people at the end of their lives, when food and water intake has been stopped,

http://www.businessinsider.com/how-m...t-water-2014-5


(There have been recorded cases of survival that exceeded a week.)

I can personally testify to this because I watched my mother die of pancreatic cancer. She opted for absolutely NO life support, including food and water. No feeding tubes, no hydration by IV. If she could not eat and drink with her mouth, she didn't want it.

This was a horrible lesson for me, to see up close and personal what it is like to starve to death, and what the final stages of dehydration looked like. According to the doctors, cancer didn't kill her; starvation and dehydration did. In the months before the end, because her pancreas stopped functioning normally, her body was not getting the nourishment from food. She was starving to death even as she ate. Then, a couple of weeks before she died, she could no longer swallow...even as she tried...

All my life, I knew my mother was part alligator AND part pit bull. Once she sunk her teeth into something, she never let go, even in the face of extreme adversity. Her incredible feat of living so long without water and nourishment was so astonishing that doctors and nurses from her hospital and other places came every day to check if she had died yet. (Nope, she is still with us. Wow.)

She lived for well over a week without water. I can't remember the exact number, but it was around 9 days.

So there. I hope I have busted that dangerous "3 days without water" myth for you. Don't you believe it. Spread the word, because in a survival situation, your body may believe what the mind tells it.

I know, Mike. I'm glad you put it out there. It caught my eye, and I took the opportunity to hopefully be of help to folks in general.

If your neighbor loses his job, it is a recession.

If you lose your job, it is a depression.

If your wife loses her job, it is a catastrophe!

One of the things about some of the 'survival quotes' is they are often misquoted or taken out of context.

Because, just for the water issue, no, you will not probably die after three days without water. But you will probably not be functional, or rational, which in a survival situation will probably lead to death much sooner than actually dying of dehydration. Sorta of true, sorta not true.

I really do not like quite a few of the generally accepted 'survival sayings', and your experiences point out why. They may sound cool to say, but they are not all that accurate so much of the time.

Glad you brought it up. It is a personal sore spot with me, and I needed a good excuse to rant on it. Thanks.

Back to topic:

But, with my rant in mind:

"Less is More"

Make that fit all situations.

Just my opinion.

I never liked 2 is 1, 1 is none.

1 is not none, it is 1. And if it is well made, may be all you need. Plus some think that less is more.

You're welcome. Jerry, the sad thing is, that well-known "3 days without water" quote is often printed in survival handbooks, then it is repeated so often until pretty much everyone believes it. Until a couple of years ago, I used to believe it and repeated it to others, myself until I learned otherwise.

I never realized how dangerous a wrong belief can be until I read many accounts of how much--for good or bad--the body can believe what the mind believes. This could be debilitating in a survival situation.

And still, this outdated quote persists. Even current mainstream survival magazines are quoting it like truth. (It was in a book, so it must be true!)
