    1 that I've heard multiple people say that horrified me was "any mushroom that grows on a dead hardwood tree is safe to eat"- that is definitely not true...

    Another one I have seen in a few different survival books is to pay attention to what plants wildlife eats... that is also dangerous, as many animals can survive and thrive eating plants that will kill a person(or at the very least,make them extremely sick) Now, paying attention and watching the signs for a water source is not a bad idea- but NEVER assume a plant is safe to eat because you saw an animal eat it!

    Please tell me that didn't actually happen...
    There ain't too many problems you can't fix with $500 or a 30-06.

    Me-"the one that's in your pocket."
    Him-"I don't have one in my pocket."
    Me-"Exactly."

    No way man. He's gotta be kidding. That dude has really lost his blanking mind, I swear. Really, there's something wrong with him.

    ...if this is something that really works, somebody please tell me so I can eat my foot. But I just really don't think so. Oh god...what's wrong with that guy?

    (Is eating one's foot a good idea in a survival situation? Is Mr. Grylls gonna do that too?)
