    Like a tarp used as a roof for shelter, and collect the water in their canteens and cooking pot. They could even hang it so it collects in the middle, and only runs off when they want it to.

    They could also make a huge collector on the ground with the tarp and some poles.

    But no tarp, thanks to Russell S!

    I would think they could weave some tight baskets for temporary collection, too.

    Making a water tight basket is actually quite hard I think, but if there are big palm leaves you can fold them into "cups" to catch rain... could do a lot of them and pour into canteens as they fill.

    Remember Ben was voted off and he was the only one with survival skills, therefore no water.

    Now that I think about it couldn't Yasmin collected water in those fancy shoes of hers?

    Plus holding a cup or pot out to collect water would require getting off your butt to do so.

    Coconut milk would qualify as hydration too--since a high percentage of it is water.

    So they didn't really "go without water for three days" as has been claimed.

    I just re-read a decription of what happens to the human body when deprived of water. And it is not pretty.

    They wouldn't even be walking around--much less able to talk or think....

    So that claim is just bogus--and probably made strictly for dramatic effect.

    I am so bored by this season.

    Yawn.

    Russell and his conniving are not enough to keep me interested - his one-note has been sung over and over and I'm tired of hearing it. There's not enough of the other team being shown. Blah blah blah.

    I barely see enough to hold my attention anymore.

    Fierce Critter--hi. I think CBS better tone down its love affair with Russell H before it loses a lot of viewers.

    Look how fascinated people were to see anything about Galu during this past episode!

    I found myself saying over and over---Gee, who's that? I don't remember seeing them before.

    Not the best way to edit this kind of show.


    Not everyone is into admiring Russell's despicable manner of gameplay--especialy his sexist/nasty attitude towards women.
