Wow! All that over a half cup of rice. Reminds me of some of them scenes on the news from Darfur... You guys crack me up sometimes, LOL

I've had my Papillon moments, and it's amazing what you are willing to try and eat when you get that hungry. Ants and Armadillo were tough, but I found out I have to be a lot hungrier than I have ever been before I can swallow the grub.

You can eat a lot of grass when you're hungry, or so it seems.

That's my point Ben- food is easy to find. The ability to record information is what separates humanity from chimps, not the ability to make tools.

First of all, I think I am Legend is a great movie. I enjoyed it, and recommend it.

Second, I agree with the importance of carrying a notebook. I carry one in my left pocket of my pants. I clip a mechanical pencil, sharpie, and pen on the back of it. I use it daily to jot down notes, ideas, recipes, directions, make lists, doodle, leave messages, and light fires.

And that's basically what I'd use it for in an emergency too. Notebooks are just handy little things. As for out in the woods, sometimes it's easier to make your own map.

I saw "Legend" just today while I was out with my dad. Not Oscar-worthy or anything, but a pretty good movie nonetheless. As for Matheson's original novella I have it here at home on my bookshelf. A great read and I highly recommend it, along with "No Country For Old Men", by Cormac McCarthy, if you want another awesome book that was made into a good movie.

As for a hand-written journal, I have one, but it takes a backseat to its electronic brother. I guess when I can't use the laptop anymore I'll have to dust it off!

First, there was the book "I Am Legend", then the movie "The Last man on Earth" with Vincent Price, then the movie "The Omega Man" with Charlton Heston, and now the movie "I Am Legend" with Will Smith...
