What the hell happened to Les Stroud? Survivorman used to give me romantic feels, now he just whines about greenpeace stuff, what to frick??? Old age dementia? I guess one should never trust a canadian, "the first country to embrace multiculturalism". Pretty dissapointing I have to say, seeing my teenage idol turn red.
Not that this has anything to do with Les Stroud, but Cody Lundin is filming a new TV show by himself. He was on some radio show, Art Bell, I think, and he said he's been filming since he got fired by NG.
He still has the potential to be the next great Dick Proenneke.
He is even more a faggot than he always has been. I saw some recent episode in patagonia. He was whining like a bitch the whole show. His basic advice: Better stay inside because hiking can kill you and only les stroud is smart enough to undertake such dangerous excursions.
god I hate this stupid fucking hippie
I'm flipping through channels and I see some show of his, makes a big dramatic scene about getting poison ivy so he hunts down some "good mud" to smear all over his feet only to continue moaning about how treacherous the ground is in appalachia
can someone enlighten me as to why this retard doesn't wear fucking shoes
He doesn't need. No human does. Your feet will eventually harden up to the point that rocks, twiggs and thorns won't bother you. Biologically if you break it down, humans are warm weather animals where there is no snow (see africa) so there is no biological need for shoes. It's only because humans adapted to colder climates that the need for shoes came about.
I see so many people complaining about hippies on here that it's starting to make me curious as to why they irritate so many of you. I've had bad experiences and good experiences with them, depending on the person I was interacting with. What is it that specifically bothers you, aside from the stereotypical naievity or somewhat hypocritical nature of them?
>can someone enlighten me as to why this retard doesn't wear fucking shoes
At one time he said it forces him to slow down and look where he is walking to avoid a mechanical injury. When I heard that I also slowed down to some extent and I wear shoes.
I saw some of the newer episodes and he literally had full blown backpacking gear with him, just minus some food.
>pot and pan
What the fuck is he trying to prove? If you go into the woods with 60lbs of gear, you will probably not starve to death in a couple days?
What happened to the old episodes, where he had to improvise with his environment?
I want to see him slurping on slime, not boiling water in a Kleen Kanteen on a ferro-rod fire.
He's a smart guy. His show is targeted to kids and young adults with no attention span or interest in real survival. They just want to buy fancy survival gear and build survival packs, then go /out/ to test them or just fantasize about "surviving".
He does things on tv that are suitable for his audience.
>generally, he just "finds" unlocked cabins
In one episode he "found" a cabin stocked with tons of firewood, but it was too damp and dirty for him so he decided to sleep outside under a tarp. Some extreme survival indeed.
Because he did that for years. He's been in tons of climates and done the whole deal with little to no gear.
It wouldn't be any better to go back to the boreal forest and do the same shit again. He's just trying something new. Like when he brought his kid along for like 2 episodes and quickly realized he had no interest in survival.
Survivorman season 7 just finished in Dec, so he's still going and doing his thing, this season was different and definitely felt more commercial but I can't say I blame him. At least it's a new angle and he's giving the bigfoot nonsense a rest (as much as I did enjoy watching that season). That bring a fan episode felt really incomplete though.
You mean that page that said his timeline of that high desert episode didn't add up?
Seems to me like caring about the environment goes pretty hand in hand with being an outdoorsman. I don't understand what your deal is. Go get your romantic feels from Bear Grylls I guess.
I definitely respect him as well. I've seen all through the seasons, maybe missing a few episodes. The production quality never really matters to me. Have a look at the guys resume and back story. It's insane what he's accomplished.
Caring about the environment? He literally supports the most radical splinters of Greenpeace, those people who are using environmentalism as business to get government money and spread their left wing agenda. Like Sea Shepherd.
Those Sea Shepherd faggots cry and cry about it, but have you ever looked into that yourself? Faroese do it because they are hardy traditionalist folk and it is their tradition, they whale so little that the population of pilot whales in the Atlantic is constantly increasing. I cannot comprehend how being an outdoorsman can lead to a left wing ideology, on the contrary, nature is the ultimate fascist. Survival of the fittest, defence of your own kind, it illuminates the only natural form of human organisation- collective patriarchal monogamy. That is nationalsocialism. Burn in hell with your cosmopolitan world nomad junk.
>Survival of the fittest, defence of your own kind, it illuminates the only natural form of human organisation- collective patriarchal monogamy. That is nationalsocialism.
National Socialism isn't survival of the fittest though, it's artificial selection.
Survival of the fittest means you can leave everything alone and the best will naturally do better. Eugenics applies human logic to predetermine which traits are best and selectively breed them
So you're saying human logic is somehow removed from nature and using it defies nature? And is concious human choice to mix races more natural then? Isn't the choice to "leave it alone" one determined by logic too? I don't get this idea that everything humans do is not part of nature. Hurr plastic is unnatural.
Don't worry anon, I believe you.
You're not a /pol/ poster, you're just our new local troll. You post the same rhetoric and phrases all over the board to try and get a rise out if people. You don't even believe any of it.
If you don't want to see stupid shit about green peace and sea Shepard stay off Twitter I guess ? I have consumed a lot of Les Stroud content over the years and never was faced with environmental politics coming from him.
I live in Alaska and one of the Rainbow Warrior ships (green peace) entered our waters without an oil spill plan. The coast guard caught them and took them to court. There answer to the charge "um... That's not our boat". I shit you not. They lost.
