The other day in class we were discussing Aron Ralston, the climber who cut his arm off after a boulder fell on it and trapped him for 127 hours. My professor noted that he had a "survivor mentality," which he associated with a generally more type A personality and a thrill seeker. I'm sure it wouldn't be an easy decision to make, but when it comes down to it, what's an arm compared to your life? I would thank my arm for the good times and then I would sure as hell cut it off if that meant I could see my family again. I'm curious to hear different perspectives on this matter. A question to start it off; how do you think this relates to getting through a SOF pipeline, if at all? I wasn't sure where to post this, but SOF prep seemed to be the best fit.
