Look Ma’…I Caught One.

String Yank Technique  Frame 1: Tie off a loop with some fishing line. Place the loop over the hook's shank and lightly pull it against the bend of the hook.   Frame 2: With your other hand, press down and back on the hook's eye.   Frame 3: Continue pressing down on the hook's eye. Quickly and firmly jerk the fishing line backward, ensuring that the line is parallel to the shank. Don't worry: only a tiny bit of flesh is behind the barb. It won't hurt too much. Clean and bandage.  Advance & Cut Technique  Frame 1: Using pliers, advance the point of the hook (including the barb) out of the skin. Follow the natural curve of the hook.  Frame 2: Use your pliers to cut the hook below the barb.  Frame 3: Remove the hook by backing it out through the wound. Clean and bandage.

Famous Last Words of Captain Lawrence Oates

On the 800-mile return trip of Robert Falcon Scott’s unsuccessful attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole, his team desperately slogged through freezing temperatures and blizzards, trying to stay on schedule and reach the supply depots along the way. Oates’ feet were badly frostbitten, and he was slowing down the rest of the men. He volunteered to be left behind, but his comrades refused to leave him. So finally he simply walked outside his tent and into a blizzard, telling the others, “I am just going outside. I may be some time.”

Check out more famous last words over at the Art of Manliness.
