0k, so, Bear Grylls Sscape From Hell, Episode 1: The Jungle, they brought a satphone; but, it's like they're NOT (?) in the 21st century.. LONG ago, there had been -portable- solar cells (and long-lasting batteries & portable charges made). Why would they bring expensive hardware along - and (still), just, end up with a system that is INCOMPLETE?! No comprendo.
How hard is it to pack a flare gun, in your backpack (& some extra flares, in a water-proof bag), honestly. The search-helicopter missed them, maybe it's fate: for them to die in the jungle; why mess w/it. xD
.. and then, they're (all) like: we were incredibly lucky, yada, yada, blah, blah; but, perhaps they should consider - how amazingly stupid they had been, in the first place, to end up in a situation like that. Not everyone is cut-out to be an explorer, right?..
