Thread: Natural objects that can aid survival situations?

    When I was a senior in high school I used to play a computer game called Zork. You wandered around an Underground Empire picking up seemingly useless things that were never used for their purpose intended. For instance, if you ate the clove of garlic rather than carry it with you at just the right time, a giant vampire bat would swoop down "Fweep fweep fweep" and carry you off too..... The Gas Room. Boom! You have died. Replay?

    Did I mention it was a text adventure. No pictures, no movies. Just words and typing. Lots of typing.
    If we are to have another contest in…our national existence I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon's, but between patriotism & intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition & ignorance on the other…
