How To Survive Two Months At Thirty Below On Snow, Cigarettes And Comic Books

How To Survive Two Months At Thirty Below On Snow, Cigarettes And Comic BooksI've read a number of stories about the Swedish man found trapped in his car for two months under the snow and ice, emaciated, but incredibly alive, now being treated in hospital for malnourishment and hypothermia. But then one sentence jumped out at me.

Mr Skyllberg survived by taking handfuls of snow from the roof of the car.

The only other things found with him were cigarettes and comic books.

And because this is Sweden, you can just bet they were Duck comics as well.

There we go folks. Yet one other reason to keep comics in the car. You never know when this sort of thing may happen.
