Woof !! Now that's one tough SOB. The consummate survivalist.
The Inuit didn’t fear the cold; they took advantage of it. During the 1950s the Canadian government forced the Inuit into settlements. A family from Arctic Bay told me this fantastic story of their grandfather who refused to go. The family, fearful for his life, took away all of his tools and all of his implements, thinking that would force him into the settlement. But instead, he just slipped out of an igloo on a cold Arctic night, pulled down his caribou and sealskin trousers, and defecated into his hand. As the feces began to freeze, he shaped it into the form of an implement. And when the blade started to take shape, he put a spray of saliva along the leading edge to sharpen it. That’s when what they call the “**** knife” took form. He used it to butcher a dog. Skinned the dog with it. Improvised a sled with the dog’s rib cage, and then, using the skin, he harnessed up an adjacent living dog. He put the **** knife in his belt and disappeared into the night.
I don't know sticks, at -40 below things freeze pretty quick. You can throw boiling water up in the air, and it vaporizes, before it hits the ground. I'll see if I can find out anything on this, or maybe someone who's native can speak from first hand knowledge here on the forum.:It would have defrosted the minute he started to buther the dog,I say Bull,ohh sorry inuit :thumb:
Well wait a minute now...if the man was taking his vitamins and his iron then who knows for sure. If he was the genius they claim he was, he would have pooped a knife sharpener as well.When the poo knife came into contact with the toasty dog did it not melt? Bullpoo knife.
Now, I heard he killed a walrus and married the polar bear...Once, long long ago, a man ran out of ammo. He urinated in 50 degree below zero weather and used the frozen droplets as shot for his sling shot. He brought down a polar bear and lived happily ever after inside. No...really.
