    Default Survival story.

    I'm going to look into this more as the story is pretty short.

    Ah dang, it's fake.

    ...some of the text in the fake article was taken verbatim from the true story of Ed Stafford who spent 60 days on a deserted island in the Pacific, reported by the Daily Mail back in 2013.

    Ed Stafford spending 60 days on an island was from a show on the Discovery Channel called Naked Castaway. I saw it and it was okay, but not great.

    Aw, so it was a tv show and not a real survival story? Sorry I'm still at work so haven't had time to look into it yet.

    Yeah, it was from a TV show. They had a guy on there, Steven Callahan, that talked about what Ed would be going through as he survived the 60 days alone on the island, and Steven had survived for 76 days lost at sea. Being lost at sea would be a lot worse than being deserted on an island. Those things can happen on occasion, though.

    I liked it. Though when he got sick and got immediate medical attention (including antibiotics prescribed), it kinda took away from the whole thing for me.

    Not sure what you mean, I was referencing the TV program.....that's how he got his goat.....so that detail stuck out to me.
