...


I have no idea what I just watched.   And I cannot decide if its unspeakably awesome... or the most terrible thing I have ever seen.

Good Lord. That's a "How to Die" video. Do not freaking eat plants!

Plants, since they cannot run away from predators, are the Kings of chemical warfare. There's something like four edible plants that the regular layman can easily and positively identify (cattails, clover, dandelion, stinging nettles (cooked!)). And then add acorns and pine nuts, and that's about all you should eat in the woods unless you really put in some time to study this stuff. And to get your typical 2,000 calorie requirement from wild plants is really, really tough. Do you know how many hours per day a cows and horses eat? And they're designed to live on plants!

But. Just about any critter can be eaten. Nearly all bugs are safe, fish are safe to eat (cooked, to kill the tiny critters in the water), and obviously anything with fur is, as they say, fair game.

Notice that that was Episode 1.
No doubt he'll do Episode 2 when he recovers.

Future episodes to consider;
Venomous snakes - totally.
How to cross a flooded stream (need a Go-Pro for that one).
Which vines to use as ropes for rappelling.
Improvised perimeter defense.
Wilderness Medicine.

Yes, definitely. Utterly foolish.
