This here is Andrew Ucles, the new face of bad-assery. In the video he catches rabbits in a way that is both horribly inefficient and beyond-Steve-Irwin-level insane: he catches venomous snakes with his bare hands and uses those snakes to catch rabbits. And he does it all with no protective gear. Not even a shirt.
I’ve been seeing this video make its rounds on some of the survival/bush-craft blogs I follow. Never expected to see it on CollegeHumor, but I guess since it’s here, I may as well share my two cents about this:
This guy is a first class idiot, and not a “badass” or “genius” as many people have been claiming. If you follow his advice in the wilderness, you will die and it will be a horribly pathetic death, and you may even earn yourself a Darwin Award. He is not “one with nature” - he is, in fact, lacking all basic respect for a highly dangerous species, and completely ignoring the fact he’s burning more calories trying to obtain a single measly rabbit than he will ever gain from actually eating it. In other words, taking his advice will get you killed one way or the other. There is no way NOT to fail here.
Ew don’t insult Steve Irwin’s memory by mentioning him when talking about someone who obviously has no respect for wildlife
^ Seriously. What the fuck. And since when has bad-assery been synonymous with idiocy?
