Indoor free fall? How does that work?
User avatar #20 to #19 - shazmothree (11/27/2012) [-]
I don't think that's it
User avatar #21 to #20 - theluppijackal (11/27/2012) [-]
No...it is.
User avatar #22 to #21 - shazmothree (11/27/2012) [-]
So you're telling me he got a world record for doing that the longest?
User avatar #29 to #22 - xldarkking (11/27/2012) [-]
they have a world record for everything. this isn't surprising
User avatar #24 to #23 - shazmothree (11/27/2012) [-]
Surprising thanks for showing me

Isn't he also an Eagle Scout?
#16 to #13 - neverposting (11/27/2012) [-]
He is the head of the entire scouts movement in the UK these days, just informing another man, no malice intended.
#15 to #13 - exploiterguyone (11/27/2012) [-]
Maybe an honorary one, but I doubt it because he's British. Could be the UK version of an Eagle Scout or something.

Scouting was started in Britain, by a Brit, in the early 1900s.

didn't an 18 year old guy from england recently scale everest?
User avatar #7 - sovereignty (11/26/2012) [-]
yea well Les Stroud
#14 to #7 - anonymous (11/27/2012) [-]
Is a bitch. Why you ask?
User avatar #25 to #14 - Crusader ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
He is a bitch how?
In terms of their show, Les Stroud is more instructive, Bear Grylls does stupid things that no one should do in that situation, yet he can do them, mainly because he has the ability, he has the skills from his time in the SAS and because he has a crew with him in case he gets in trouble.
User avatar #34 to #25 - curtkobain (11/27/2012) [-]
but you have to think about it. There are a lot of ******* idiots in the world who would probably get themselves in stupid situations. And if you're lost for a long time not eating food all the time ***** with your thoughts.
User avatar #27 to #25 - LiamNeeson (11/27/2012) [-]
Les Stroud is survival. You know people are coming for you. Stay alive.

Bear is " **** , how did I end up in this mess, I need to get out."

Two completely different shows which shouldn't be overly compared.
User avatar #173 to #27 - Crusader ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
Not even close to completely different, Bear Grylls approach takes a certain level of athletic ability and co-ordination, which granted, most campers/hikers have.
But I have seen episodes where he builds a raft to through rapids, jumped off a cliff to the top of a tree (over 40 feet up) and just done things that if you make any error, you end up dead, or seriously injured and then dead.
User avatar #174 to #173 - LiamNeeson (11/27/2012) [-]
Yes, Stroud is survival.
Bear is "all or nothing," so he needs to take risks. Both shows attempt the same thing, but in different situations with different perspectives. Only the core is the same.
User avatar #175 to #174 - Crusader ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
But even so, Stroud shows things that really, anyone can do.
Grylls shows things that he is able, and willing to do due to his training and the fact that he has a team with him. I doubt he would do half the things he does on his show in real life, purely because he realizes that if something did happen, he would be ****** .
User avatar #176 to #175 - LiamNeeson (11/27/2012) [-]
I won't debate you there, and in 90% of scenarios I would take Stroud's advice.
But starve/die alone or do something life risking and I'd choose Grylls. As I said, it;s all about perspectives.
User avatar #43 to #27 - ilovehitler (11/27/2012) [-]
************* this.

If I were stuck in the middle of the Sahara, I would try to be like Les, because I doubt it would be easy to find civilization.
If I were stuck in some forest in Oregon or something, I would try to do what Bear did, because finding civilization would be easier.

Thank you for your wisdom Liam, now please, don't kill me.

#8 to #6 - newall (11/27/2012) [-]

yes and no, they get the training but they don't really do much unless they're draughted into full time forces, but seeing as they are the most elite special forces unit in the world, i'd imagine it's working.

User avatar #12 to #11 - nervehammer (11/27/2012) [-]
