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...

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.)
