    ive been playing guitar 35 years. Im ok. I felt uploading to youtube would get me some gratification, or a pat on the back I was so desperately craving. But after a few years of just dissapointments, I gradually stopped wasting effort trying to upload to youtube. I think I have a total of maybe 15 comments on 30 videos over the last 10 years. Dont know why my videos suck so extremely bad that no one will even watch one , I thought even if I sucked really bad, out of hundreds of people maybe a few might like something ........ nah in 10 years, Ive gotten under 100 views. Im watch youd call a UZmilk Flop, but far less that that.

    Was it worth it?. There is a reason why we don t live alongside deadly creatures, and there is a reason why we shouldn t abuse our bodies by running inthe Sahara Desert.

      @George Andrews you also need to have a brain in the army. Which you don’t seem to have as you seem to think it’s possible to see in a massive sandstorm

      @George Andrews how did he know he was south? Because YOU saw the map? He didn’t have any idea where we was, how far he was from the race trail, or which direction he had to travel.

      @ARMY FAN #1 He new he was at the bottom of the course when he got lost. He traveled roughly south . That is with the sun in front of him at mid day in the northern hemisphere. So the finnish was NNE. Sun over his right shoulder. I have sailed the oceans with a secstant. You need to know this stuff in the army.

    Well, first I'd ask myself: "How did I GET here?" Then I'd ask myself: "How do I work this?" Then I'd ask myself: "Where IS that large automobile?" Then I may tell myself: "This is not my beautiful house!" Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again, after the money's gone Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground To be serious now: This is a crazy story of survival. Prosperi is quite the adventurous spirit!

    Very interesting video, but very clickbait-y title... this is one man's story, filled with multiple events of bad luck. Probably not what would happen (nor any recommendation what you should do) if you were stranded in the Sahara alone.

    Tough bugger :) two main easily avoided mistakes he made (not waiting out the sand storm and not waiting out rescue while making an SOS and a temp shelter) drinking his own urine made things worse but apart from that really tough guy :) I don't think I would of lasted more then a couple of days

    So he did everything wrong when dehydrated. Did what ALL experts tell you not to do. He drank his urine (WRONG) he ate food (WRONG) he drank animal blood (WRONG) yet he survived longer than almost anyone else could have??? Yep, makes you wonder that’s for sure!

    If you r stranded in the Sahara desert without water, you are dead in less then six hours. Do not get stranded there.

  • ThePhilosorpheus

    Sounds like a beautiful biblical story. Also, it may seem crazy that he returned to the desert afterwards, but when you fall in love with the desert, the pain becomes familiar, and in a sense, even pleasant. Its all about rediscovering the fundamental poverty of the human bodily condition, which is also where our spiritual richness manifests more clearly. In the desert, same as in the sea or any rough scenario, you feel small, and you discover that which is greater than you. The first Christian monks are known as the "desert fathers" because they endured this kind of suffering as an ascetic exercise in spiritual growth. I recommend looking them up.
