Re: Man Washes up in Marshall Islands 'After 16 Months Adrift'
Smart guy. Catching seagulls and tearing off their wings so they can't escape, then keeping them alive for some time so he always had fresh meat "on the hoof"-pretty sharp. This is the sort of thing a third world villager would think of but many first worlders might not. No refrigeration
required. 8-10 seagulls with their wings torn off in the boat
at once must have been a nightmare, though. No wonder he's heavily scarred.
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
