On the latest episode of “Survivorman” Les Stroud gets stranded in the Kalahari Desert. Running out of drinking water on the fourth day he collects condensed droplets of water on a plastic sheet by suspending it above the 140 degree sand where he’d pissed.
An extreme measure to be sure, but what choice has he, especially with his stomach being unsettled from munching on scorpions, which are scurrying about everywhere. So are venomous Cape cobra snakes and puff-adders, making for an utterly hostile environment.
Queens is becoming hostile to life too, with all of the crappy buildings that have been sprouting up, lately, at the hands of greedy developers and fork-tongued politicians set on turning our beautiful borough into a concrete shantytown, where temperatures of feed up residents are soaring too.
