Man vs. Wild
This is my new favorite show during the summer off-season since Lost, Heroes, and Battlestar Galactica aren't on.
Bear Grylls is undeniably the man. He teaches you all sorts of neat survival skills in different exotic locations. All I need is a water bottle, a knife, and a flint, and I can survive....with a well-equipped camera crew to follow me in case I'm dying.
If I get lost on a mountain biking trek, I'll have to survive by eating bugs and drinking dew off of plants. I think I'll be able to survive since I can go for long periods of time without food and then eat like a camel. Another survival advantage I have is that I'm not too picky about food. I can eat almost anything. Many of my well-fed lap of luxury-type friends and co-workers wont' be able to survive long. They are too dependent on fancy restaurants and living a fancy lifestyle.
