Roaches tend to die on their backs with their legs tightly clasped in the air. If you pull off one wing and tuck it between their legs, they can be set on their backs and obseverved cruising down the water in any metropolitan gutter. With practice and favorable winds they can cruise the bigger waters in the parks.

Well, since now it's a gun thread, I was going to offer up the old Mae West line - "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me".

But then I decided that would be wrong...

Nice work!

I guess I have seen to many episodes of Discovery Channels Survivor Man but I have always wondered how long someone could survive for without money while cruising.

Third world jails are not something I want to become a resident of.
My ex is the reason I'm doing this. She's worse than going to jail.
And not only are clubs for the seals out of your budget, there's the cost of getting to the clubbing grounds, buying the cold weather clothing, and then there's the after clubbing jobs.

I'd get very good at fishing, eating raw fish, and living on an uninhabited island far, far away from any temptation.

He's going to die at sea when he tries to drift around the world, a 3 foot wave will wash him out. I'd bet he stays put milking the media machine for several more years (Or forever).

Atoll, superbly done. You saved lives, did good, and helped the overall reputation of sailors the world over.

Oh dear. I looked into the exchange rate, and $1.85 is only 0.536 Kuwaiti Dinars. Bugger. That means I can't afford to buy either a tub of cottage cheese OR a packet of dried pineapple. I'll just have to be frugal, and save for three months... But what to live off in the first two months?

You don't have to eat raw fish. A solar oven is more than enough for cooking fish. At least in the spring, summer, and fall. A lot of fish cooks better using solar than in anything else.
Course, you are gonna blow three years budget building one!
