When you’re stranded in the middle of Iceland with a flat tire, no jack, no reception and limited food, that Calculus midterm from November seems pretty trivial. But surely some account of castaway survival from history class can help–perhaps that lecture about how the Donner Party clung to life by strategically rationing food, locating a water source and only resorting to cannibalism once all the animals were eaten... hmm... on second thought, that Bear Grylls binge during finals week was definitely a good idea.
