Awww, Bear Grylls found a cute little seal to play with. Wait, why isn’t the seal moving? The seal’s just sleeping, right? What’s he doing with that knife? Oh frig NOOOOOOO!!

Or, how Bear Grylls makes a wetsuit.

As an aside, I hardly ever watch Man vs Wild since Grylls can't hold a candle to Ray Mears. Compared to Ray, Bear seems to me more like a MacGyver rip-off sans paperclips and hilarity, and with added gore and reckless disregard for safety.

We watch Bear when we get a chance, he's full of energy and pretty entertaining, I've never heard of Ray Mears so I googled him.
When I read Mears wiki where it starts by defining him as "When he was a young man, he longed to sleep on the trail and learned to trap foxes", then read Bears wiki where it describes him as "Special forces" as well as "The youngest Britt to climb Everest" I literally Lolled at your comment.

I used to watch Les Stroud too, but it got to where he sounded like he was whining about everything he did.

I wholeheartedly agree that Bear is entertaining, and he sure is badass. And that is what his show is; entertaining badassery. What I have a problem with is that it is implied that he shows useful survival techniques. He doesn't. That was the point of my earlier comment really. Bear Grylls may be tough enough to survive deliberately (yet uncontrollably) sliding headfirst down an icey slope, running through over uneven ground or swimming through stagnant carcass-filled water. Normal people aren't though. For normal people those are surefire ways to get hurt or killed. Which pretty much defeats the survival aspect.

That said, it wasn't my intention to get all serious about this. I just wanted to share the vid of Bear Gryll's wearing a dead seal pup.

Yeah, except when it comes to laundry day.

My washing machine doesn't have a "dead seal pup" cycle. What does that need to go on or is it dry clean only?

The best way to clean a dead seal pup skin is a live seal mom's tongue.

One night last summer, Lady Gaga sat in a tour bus in England, covered in stage blood from her concert that day. She told me that she had cried hysterically before a recent show because she'd had a dream that the devil was trying to take her. She then said, in earnest, that the spirit of her dead aunt was literally inside her body and that she had eaten a bovine heart to face her fear of her father's heart surgery.

If a stranger on a train had said all of this to me, I would have moved a few seats away. But this was one of the most famous women in the world. "It's hard to just chalk it all up to myself," Lady Gaga said of her success, explaining that there was "a higher power that's been watching out for me."

Useful info - my washing machine has that setting, but I've never known what to use it for.
