Bear Grylls I mean Really.   :dousing: :dousing: :dousing:

Because Cocky and Chuck Norris were too busy.
There's a feeling I get, when I look to the west, and my spirit is longing for leaving.

Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

When they filmed the Skeleton Coast episode, local tour operators were contracted to bring in "props" from Walvis Bay, the piece of rope, washed up rowboat and so on. The tyre tracks in the sand was raked over. The areas where he started walking at sunup, (which is quite late in the morning at our west coast) and ended up at noon is actually almost a 100km apart. The apparent "heat exhaustion" would have been difficult considering they were 50 meters from the cold Atlantic with the  breeze coming from the west 99% of the year.

There is NO fresh water in that area, except for the riverbed seep pools, so the little puddle he "found" came out the back of a certain light brown Land Cruiser with Swakopmund plates on. They slept in four star luxury after a four course meal at the Cape Cross Lodge, and were flown in and out by helicopter, leased from an oil/gas exploration company. Catering on site was also handled in a fashion far removed from a bit of rotten seal. The chopper pilot I also knew well and his phone was confiscated for taking pics. They had to sign a hou jou bek agreement, but we all know how that works ou

Ex-SAS member. Worldwide head of the Boy Scouts, the only group dedicated to getting Pommie kids off of their asses. Broke his back in a parachute accident, was told he'd never walk again: two years later climbed Everest. Has silly names for his kid, no doubt in the Jonny Cash tradition so that they learn to fight.
Yes, the shows are staged. That might not even be real piss. But he's a damn sight cooler than a footballer whose voice never broke.
PS: I still won't buy a Triumph.

And yet people watch the series, so I would guess it's those same people that Triumph is appealing to, to buy their product.

But wait, Steve McQueen also rode Triumph, so that makes him a dead Twatwaffle by association.  >:D

That is also still to be proved apparently. There are SAS guys who say they never had him in the regiment.
SAS, unlike certain SEALS nowadays, tend to not go for the publicity. It is a pretty big thing to lie about, though. Witness the "recce" on this forum who was taken to the cleaners. Now put him on global tv.
