In our current comfy, technology-ridden lives we rarely have a reason to sacrifice our comforts, but what if the world was a much different place?  What if your own city wasn’t a city, but a wasteland?  And what if, in a matter of hours, you went from comfortable and sustained, to simply needing to survive?  Have you ever wondered about the limits of human sustenance, or the bare minimum you need to survive?  Let’s go over a few strange things you could, in a pinch, eat for to stay alive.
