    After doing a little more thinking on the subject here's what kind of prorates I came up with.
    1.Deal with any first aid issues if you have them and/or just asses the situation.
    2.find/make shelter,
    3.Water-make sure it's disinfected whether that be through boiling, iodine, chlorine, or through any other means of disinfecting water you may have.
    4. Fire (this may come before you drink the water in order to disinfect it)
    5. Food(glorious food)
    6.Tools(make them, find them, improve them, whatever you need to get your jobs done)
    -in a survival situation you should be signaling while doing your other tasks...

    I don't make millions of dollars like Cody Lundin or the Kardashians, but that's the list of my survival priorities I came up with and have come across through the years...
    stay positive and party on!

    I assume this is why you are a millionaire now? Yup, Stepping over others sure does get you far in life.

    Hey, I was just answering your question about where the Grizzly bear was in the pyramid of insanity that you brought up in post #8.

    Don't take off down a tangent trail and then act like you are demanding focus, this was your trip down the rosy path, not mine.


    As for stepping over people to get to the top???

    Where did that come from anyway?

    It's the freekin' outrun the bear analogy, not a statement on the condition of society or one's code of personal behavior.

    Newbies with issues alert folks.

    That's what you are prettymuch saying here:

    My father would try and teach me the same thing but was a bit more brutally honest about it. He would say you need to lie and be an a**hole to reach the top. Find opportunities to use people so that you get what you want and always put on a face. Life is a game; the nice people in the world are idiots and they fail, but the a**holes; people willing to get dirty and fight for what they want, win."

    My father used these tactics throughout life and he is one of the top directors for Nationwide Insurance company. He makes lots of money, but he is also disliked by many and is unhappy; always wanting more and never satisfied. I will NEVER be like him and I've made that very clear; which is why I'm his least favorite son. But I don't care, I have no respect for people like that.

    That's the reason I don't like that phrase you posted. My father used to lecture that same phrase to us when we were kids.

    I hope you all got more bags of popcorn handy. :P

    I would suggest that's your interpretation of what he is saying. I didn't read it that way at all. There is no emotion in that statement. It's pretty much a statement of fact. I think it's called capitalism.

    Yep, newbies with issues.

    In this case "Daddy issues".

    Yea he could have been using it in a completely different context. I apologize if I interpreted it wrong, I read that comment after I had an argument with him over the phone for verbally abusing my mother last time I visited. I'm the only one who sticks up for her and when I hear people acting like him or saying things he says, I tend to fight for the opposite cause.

    Very true. Apples don't fall far from the tree. I assume this what your dad looked like?

    If you intend to go on the offensive each time someone makes a joke or comment you don't like then you won't last long. Once you strike the first blow you have to know that others will be defensive. You might want to let this drop while you're ahead.

    Honestly it was no problem; I was just playing along and having a bit of fun so my apologies.
    But I suppose this is a large derailment of the topic.

    Indeed, let's move on.

    My Intentions...what are you implying with this insult? I don't think you understand what "moving on" means. When we all agree to move on, that doesn't mean leave another insult at the door while doing it.

    I apologized twice. Once for my misunderstanding and my original comment and a second time for 'going on the offensive' and the topic derailment. And after all this, I even commented to your comment on my miniature swords topic with appreciation for your interest and was very respectful in answering your question...

    What more do you guys want?

    Seems you just did the same thing. LET IT GO. That's my last request.

    Let me suggest this - rather than close this topic - let any further postings here reflect the OP and not the disagreement/misunderstanding. That is how we can move on from this and prevent any further misunderstandings.

I don't even drink alcohol so now I gotta get a Nalgene bottle of my famous sweet tea and popcorn. BTW, Kyrat, thanks for the info on how to get away from the bear. As for Bear Grylls I'm STILL trying top stay away from that idiot!......
