OT - Another f*** up to become a big screen hero

James Franco is playing Aron Ralston of "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" fame in a film called 127 hours.

You know - go mountain biking in desert by yourself, go canyoning by yourself, tell no one, get arm trapped by a boulder, have to cut arm off with blunt pocket knife while drinking own urine.

Still an amazing story...

I just read the book a while back and he took some seriously uncool risks even before he got his arm stuck - Its a great read though

Ive read the book, it is a good read, he took some risks but hey alot of ppl do every weekend....I have no probs with him making money out it...personally Id prefer my two arms then money though.

Agreed rodw. Though there is nothing wrong with only having one arm.*

*Given that everyone is finding offence with everything this week (some being legitimate grievances others perhaps not) I thought it best to add a disclaimer before my comment might be seen to offend someone...

Was given the book a long time ago and only got around to reading it just last year honestly this could happen to most of us. I have spent enough time wandering around the bush by myself without giving definite plans and / or changed them as the day or trip has progressed. Included some slips and tumbles where I was lucky to not be injured!

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

(I'm sorry, but I really like that line.)
