Great practical advise straight from the military- wanted to give all of you threaders a heads up.

What do you all think of it?
Just caught this email from Dark Angel, not sure if it qualifies for an 'announcement' as such;
"Our professional team of enthusiasts, law enforcement members and veterans have created the perfect sized compact kit that you can take ANYWHERE. We have hand-selected each high-quality item in this kit to specifically cover the widest range of possible scenarios.

For a very limited time you can have this kit shipped to you for only $19.95 and FREE SHIPPING. Just use coupon code "FSMARCHLIMITED" during checkout!"
What would it be?
I guess that makes this a two pronged question:
What do you think is the best skill to have?
What is the hardest skill to acquire (thus making it the best to attain overnight)?
If you've got two answers (one for each question) let me know, then let me know which probably outweighs the other..
Being trapped inside (more like "trapping myself inside") most of the day makes me wonder just how many bushcraft skills I can actually teach myself/improve on indoors if I wanted to.
I know this sounds silly to most.. just go outside... I hear ya, but indulge me for a minute.
The number of bushcraft skills I can teach myself in the comfort of my own home is probably a lot higher than I'd at first consider (I immediately thought "I can't think of any!" then started actually getting some ideas...)
So with a little pondering I've come up with these;
creating hammocks & fish nets based off those netting skills
whittling (esp utensils)
plant identification memorization
creating fishing baskets based off those basket weaving skills
I don't know; not quite such a bad list so far.
Any more ideas?
