I'd like to take a class in Logic, have wanted to for years. My old man says he took one back in the day and it really changes how you approach things. And it could be useful from a survival perspective, because often logic becomes blurred... especially if you use a car GPS, apparently.

On the other hand, my employer says I am too logical, but I think thats because I keep winning arguments. Its basically like saying "begone!" but only slightly less annoying.

Some training in the skills necessary - at least read a book, even better to have tried out some of it before the emergency. Firestarting comes to mind.
