Not as such, but I am a Level 7 Master in Couchology. Mostly that involves being able to find comfort when in various positions, keeping everything within arms reach, not losing the remote. I should reach Level 8 soon, as I'm conquering the etiquette of MakeMeASandwichery. That is of course assuming rusticbitch doesn't look into these forums.

Spoken like a true whipped coward. :)

And congrats on the level. I just got my black belt in origami. I'm pretty stoked!

I took survival training, got kicked out for an attitude problem.

LOL!

I took my scout troop to our science museum for the insect exhibit, and of course they were the first ones volunteering to help on stage for the insect cooking show. So I've had insect pilaf and lived to tell about it. They taste just like chicken...very small chickens, with tiny, crunchy legs. If ever I cook some for you all, I'll leave the legs off. ;) (Hey, too bad you've got that silly restriction on biological imports in New Zealand, or I could send some to the folks at Firetrust for your swap program.)

Now vegemite/marmite, no, I can't eat that, not on a sandwich anyway. I use it in a gravy recipe I have, and it's always a challenge to find it, since somehow all the people won't eat it live in North America. I once looked for it all over the grocery store: with the sandwich spreads, with the ethnic/imported foods, with the [cough] gourmet foods, with the vegetarian foods... no luck. The clerk finally found someone who knew. They keep it in the aisle with the gravy mixes.

The survival training I took didn't have a <removed> or grocery store nearby. There was no cooking involved, if I remember right.

The Marmites and Vegemites are probably a bit of an acquired taste...bloody good though on toast for those mornings after.

Oddly (well about as odd as can be for a yeast extract) you'll find people quite explicit in their tastes, so if they like Marmite, they'll probably dislike Vegemite....personally I'm a Marmite person, but SWMBO is a Vegemite person, so I've switched.

Does watching Man Vs Wild count as Survival Training ?
