Survival Tip #183
Skills of the Past
My most recent survival book is titled The Pirate Handbook: A Rogue’s Guide To Pillage, Plunder, Chaos & Conquest. Why am I reading about how to be a pirate?(Besides the obvious that pirates are awesome)
There was once a time where the oceans were as unknown as out space, but frankly my knowledge of them ended sometime around 3rd grade geography. I’ve learned how to make devices for desalinization just in case, but I don’t know shit about open water.
In a Primal Age the water is a terrible idea for most people because you need to know what you are doing or you will end up dead. The ocean has claimed far better souls than myself. As I am reading through this novel though and it is explaining all the parts of a pirate ship it dawned on me that there was once a time where this was as simple a concept as driving a car.
The skills of the past will keep you alive in the future. Make sure you are well versed.
