    That's not just any old chap, that's Dave Canterbury and he is well known for his survival skills. His most recent stuff deals with a show called "Dual Survival", produced by the Discovery Channel.

    Nope, never used one of those. Looks kinda silly. I am favoring the slingshot!

    I also saw a vid where Dave was effectivley shooting an arrow with a modified sling-shot. More ingenious and creative than useful but still, he is always thinking outside the box and showing people how to do out of the ordinary things with ordinary itmes.

    Yup, I agree. I made a video on it also, but entirely separate from his because this is something that has been around quite a while and I am not sure of its origin. I actually got the idea from myself acting stupid one day, but I didn't get the cemented idea until I watched a video on suvivalistboards youtube channel, which also led me to Dave's own rendition. The whisker biscuit was a great idea, one that I am happy to have absorbed from videos. I think Dave used a keyring if I am not mistaken...hard to remember. It all works, though.
