Boil in the bag rations

Surely, if you tried to force an open tin of irish stew up your arse, you would be at risk of a nasty cut from the sharp edges?
Inserting it is less of a problem than exserting it.

Well, with beans anyway.


So I'm told.
 
Makes me wonder if the issue "Battlefield First Aid" book was more comprehensive, what would have happened if someone was on excercise overprescribing themselves brufen and been on compo for a week and having the inevitable composhit moment! Thought they had "Proctalgia"!!??

Depends which way round the tin is.

Stomach-pump Roulette. Now there's a game show in waiting. Sort of Man Versus Food and The Deer Hunter meets Emergency Ward 10.

Needs a catchy title

'Swamp people' is taken

Guy with silly hair on a certain septic History Channel (and fringe porn ) may make a legal challenge if 'An@l Aliens' is used
 
It’s common practice for companies to make differing versions for different ’brands’.

One of my favourites was a tinned fish product made by a company.
The tins were identical, as was the fish inside.
The two ‘different’ brands only differed by having different labels and one ‘brand’ had one single extra ingredient added per tin.
One type was sold as Lidl own brand, the other was sold as Harrods own brand………but both made on the same lines by the same people :)

United biscuits also made discount brand biscuits in the same factories as they make their own well known branded biscuits.

Many Bosch and Varta car batteries are made by the same company in the same factory……Using the exact same outer cases……..but have different labels and prices.

‘Yorkshire‘ are the best brand for copper plumbing fittings,
Lots of Wickes brand plumbing fittings are actually made by Yorkshire, but are packaged so the Yorkshire brand emblem doesn’t show while in the packag
TKmax are picky about removing references to Harrods from items sold there. Go figure ;)

It was used in the Falklands War, as a means of emergency fluid replacement on the battlefield. The book, "The Red and Green Life Machine" mentioned it, also that it saved the lives of wounded soldiers who otherwise would have definitely karked it.

We were taught "drip up the bum " by the 3 Para medic that was there in the Falklands war when everyone had big holes in them, so it was definitely a thing and not a myth.

Yet the ouen in the vid posted in #142 reckoned it was more of a morale booster rather than a life saver.

If a patient is going into hypovolemic shock the body will generally use blood from the periphery and non-life sustaining organs to keep itself alive, therefore the bowel will be unable to take on the water.
On the upside, your arse will be squeaky clean for the Tampax Tiffies.

For rehydration from non-potable fluid it's unlikely to harm as long as the water isn't too contaminated.

The family that survived the sinking of their vessel Lucette in 1971 survived by doing just that.

As the water in the boat didn't pass through the gut it remained relatively safe.

Edited for spelling.

By contaminated I was thinking further than just salt water or effluent, more on the lines of fuel or other chems.
eg. Battery acid might not be so good.

While it might be fairly hard to find water in the wild, or at sea contaminated with battery acid, look on the bright side………
It would contain electrolyte. :)
