Mental 58

    In season.

    An excellent article was brought to my attention today and it poses an often danced-around but very seldom quantified question:

    If the shit hit the fan, what would your current physical skill set allow you to survive?

    The writer(s) of the article put some physical parameters at the end that they feel are good measures of the question above. They are well thought-out, and although the questions they pose are hypothetical, the concepts transfer directly to real situations that are much less so.

    Although they are selling a product, and that is largely the goal of the piece, its contents are useful, and the skills, movements, and capacities they call on for modern-day self preservation are spot on.

    “Are you fit enough to survive?”

    Thoughts? How do you measure up?
    (Remember, self deception is never in season…)
