Support For Bear


I just wanted to say that I will assume Bear Grylls is authentic as he appears to be on TV. Many have said that one must be somewhat naive to believe everything we see him do on his show. Well, I have absolutely no survival experience, so there is no reason for me to have questioned anything that I have seen. I am not naive, I am someone who is entertained not only by Bear himself, but the things that he has done. Call me naive when I start interpreting Star Trek as though it were being presented as fact by the History Channel.

I do know that the show I watch can't or won't give me a completely accurate interpretation of the man himself, but I really appreciate the mentality and attitude he has throughout his experiences on the show. Reminds me of Frodo. I would like to think that my guess is an accurate one, and I'll cite the fact that he's also a motivational speaker to support my theory. I find Bear, if nothing else, seriously motivating.

I'd like to remind everyone that this is a man who broke his back in three places during a parachuting accident, and two years later, at 23 years old climbed Everest. He also served in the British Special Forces, crossed the Arctic, and recently broke a world record by flying a powered paraglider over Everest to raise $1,000,000 for Global Angels Charity. This information and more can be found at his website by clicking here.

Not a complete fraud...there's no evidence that he lied about anything off of the show, meaning his service in the special forces, everest, etc...
