To be television survivalist Bear Grylls is to be all that is man.
Grylls, the host of Discovery Channel's "Man vs. Wild", sustained a shoulder injury Friday after falling while on an expedition in Antarctica designed to raise money for an international charity.
Grylls has by far one of the most interesting Wikipedia pages around -- which will definitely become the standard by which man is judged in the not-so distant future.
"Grylls has eaten snake (one made him sick), worm, scorpion, porcupine, squirrel, alligator, skunk, camel, zebra, rabbit, lizards, turtle, raw fish, sheep's eyeballs, goat's testicles (a Berber delicacy), a tree frog, spider, raw yak liver, termites and grubs. In one episode he dipped a sheep's eye in a geothermal vent with his shoe laces in order to cook it.
He has also rubbed snow on his body to dry off after jumping into an icy lake, squeezed both elephant dung and partially digested food from the stomach of a dead camel into his mouth for water, ripped raw chunks of meat off a dead zebra with his teeth, eaten maggots off a dead deer, and drank his own urine which had been stored in the skin of a dead snake.
