Lost Hiker Survived by Eating His Frozen Nuts


It was a cold night. So cold that one hiker later described the night as so cold, "...my nuts were frozen. So frozen I wasn't sure how I was going to survive." But survive he did.


Separated from his friends during an evening hike, John Wright was no more then a novice hiker. He wasn't dressed for an overnight adventure in the woods, "All I had was my coat, my hat, and of course my nuts." He continued, "I never really thought I would have to eat them, but they are always with me so I guess I just took them for granted."
When Wright realized there was no getting home he decided to find some shelter. The cold air and frozen ground made it impossible for this novice hiker to even try and make a fire so he did the best he could to stay safe. "I curled up with my knees to my chest to stay warm....It helped."
As the night progressed he felt hunger begin to take him over. "I was hungry" Wright explained. Being a physician Wright realized that without nourishment his body could easily slip into hypothermia. "I didn't want to die and getting something in my stomach was imperative. I was hugging the back side of my legs to stay warm and pulling in my legs tight. I felt my nuts and felt instant relief. I would be able to survive". But there was something wrong. "When I felt my nuts I knew instantly that they were frozen. I had to chuckle because it was cold and I had frozen nuts! It sounded a little funny" Wright continued, "I was unable to use my body heat to un-thaw my nuts so I just had to eat them frozen."


Lucky for Wright that Brazil nuts are soft in the middle.

If he cooked them first would that qualify for "chestnuts roasted on a open fire"?

MIT Signs Challenge Students

The MIT campus has all new signs that challenge the students math skills in a variety of ways using math equations and problems. Although its amusing to students the community has protested as many have been receiving speeding tickets. Many claim that although that they live near MIT that doesn't mean they are good at math. Local police officers disagree and claim the public should just x*x + 2x - 35 = 0 and solve for x.
