Bruce Parry... awesome or annoying?
I've seen the guy two weeks in a row on tribe; last week they pierced his skin and layered frog poison on it - when it wasn't enough to make him throw up and hallucinate, they applied more and more and more until he did. Then he got whipped until he was covered in welts. He's not exactly an alpha male, but hell, he endures to breaking point and he tries and tries until he succeeds, and for that he earns my utmost respect. I'm sad that I've only seen two - unless there are more and I've missed them? He's also very respectful of their customs and cultures - not patronising, no laughs or jokes about their differences - just fact: this is the way they do things and this is why.
God, I'm on one tonight. I should go to bed.
Sleep is for the weak!
Last episode of Tribe was awesome. He went up to darkest Siberia and spent a week with some ultra rock hard snow people herding reindeer for a week.
Reindeer like to drink piss.
- that tickled me too :)
I read an amazing book about a prisoner of war who escaped and spent literally years crossing terrain like that, getting robbed and abused to buggery along the way - surving in similar situations, but not being part of a tribe, and having to wing it when he met them along the way and they were highly suspucious and distrustful of him. I'll ask stepdad what it was called if anybody is interested in knowing.
