    amazing story of survival. Yet at the same time were they really living? Always so close to starvation and so alone? I wonder.

    I am truly impressed, shocked.

    Can't imagine. 40 years of wilderness. Wow. Just wow. A very very interesting story.

    That was a very, very interesting article! Also, it is amazing how the human species can adapt if necessary for anything they encounter.

    You know how pissed off I would be if I came back to society after 40 years and the Cowboys had not won a 6th superbowl! I feel sorry for Eagles fans that went into the wilderness right after the merger and came back today to an empty trophy case :D

    Glad to share it with you all.

    I believe we are one of the most adaptive species in existence. Culture, brain power, and opposable thumbs help:D

    Frankly I think it is no cooincidence that so many of them died soon after they were found.

    they had lived that long and then suddenly die of kidney failure? Highly questionable that came from nowhere.

    you have heard of germs and viruses-right?

    You have heard that people isolated like that have no immunity to diseases common in the rest of the world- right?

    So do the math
