Was wondering about that whole survival part of this story. Pretty damn cool even as an art project though.

this story has floated around for a few years. there are skeptics that insinuated that it was at least partially staged. lot of work done considering he had "no" tools. he apparently made a boat out of one too. pretty kool though, not sure I buy all the story though

How often does he find himself in those situations? Sounds like a lot of implausible movie sequels. Doesn't mean DieHard-er-est isn't worth watching though. Yippiekaiyay Motherfucker!

You feel the need to explain this!

WHY?
