Joshua said:I remember hearing an odd story about survival as taught to the RCMP. The story goes that each man was given a small paper bag and a teabag and told that if he gets lost, the first thing he should do is brew up a cup of tea. The idea was that going through the motions of making a cup of tea would do two things; one, it would force them to take some time to think about their situation. Two, it would provide something familiar and comforting. I don't have any clue if the story is true but it follows the same idea.
I assume this is the boil up in a paper bag trick
now I know it works but have often wondered how you drink it out of the bag ?
