I quite like "primative" skills.
If I had to disconnect from the Net, I would quite happily resort to living as a hunter gatherer in the post skynet-apocalypse.
Got a signed Ray Mears autobiography on the bookshelf, next to my Loft Wiseman survival manual. I remember as a scout drooling over a mate's copy of that book, as a bunch of us in a tent obviosuly needed to know how to kill a polar bear that was going to walk through the field we were camping in.
If I can get my copy of this signed too, I shall be very chuffed.
Essential Bushcraft by Ray Mears
Ditto but since i'm a biffta I would likely be prey rather than hunter...
