We too easily forget being " stranded in the Amazon" is in reality no worse than a South American Indian finding him/herself standing on 5th Avenue in New York.
Amen! Of course I think (actually I know) I would feel more sorry for the South American stranded in NYC than the New Yorker stranded in Brazil. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> If I have got to be loney, scared and possibley dieing from one thing or another and get to choose where it happens, NYC is at the bottom of the list. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I like the ruler and DMT sharpener... if you survive the wreck, you can make yourself a pretty functional knife, and the metal pen doubles as a push point, great ideas, thanks <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />.

I'd bring a pad of graph paper, with some engineering drawings on the top sheet to make it more plausible to have a ruler with you.

Now that's smart. I like that. I have to think in terms of looking plausible. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I'd be inclined to tell them I am a nun (In drag dressed as a man.) and schoolteacher and that they better not touch my ruler if they know what's good for them. Even if the inspector isn't Catholic, they will listen.

Yeah, but you probably look intimidating. I'm tall, thin, and geeky. Anything but intimidating. <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

At 5-foot-11-inches and 140 pounds, if I turn sideways I vanish. Also, I'm very nearsighted and am 43 now, so my glasses have bifocals. <img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

Good thing is, I look very non-threatening. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Would be nice to look intimidating just once, however. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Craig:

I get the impression that you have never heard about school teaching nuns.

Size don't matter!

Looks don't matter!

Wheather they smile, speak in a soft voice, or say "please" and "thank you" don't matter!

If she is a nun and a school teacher, and she controls a ruler, your butt is grass, and she is the lawnmower!

I have heard this many times from my Catholic friends who attended Catholic schools.

Sounds like you're describing a terrorrist.
