Honest to God you can't make up stuff like this. I just had to share this with my personal protection loving friends.

Oregon man survives off taco sauce while trapped in vehicle with dog for 5 days

Apparently CNN has a copy writer or a newscaster that doesn't understand what snow is made of.

The snow trapped Jeremy R. Taylor, but taco sauce saved his life.

It all began last Sunday when Taylor, along with his dog Ally, went to get gas for his Toyota 4Runner, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office in Bend, Oregon.
Taylor told investigators his SUV got stuck in the snow. He then fell asleep and woke up Monday to even more snow, unable to get out of the vehicle. He tried to walk out Monday, but the snow was too deep and made it hard to walk so he and his dog returned to vehicle, the sheriff's office said.
.
.
Over the next few days after initially getting stuck, Taylor told authorities he stayed warm by "periodically starting his vehicle and used a few taco sauce packets he had as food," the sheriff's office said.


Here comes the idiot part:
It is not clear how he, or the dog, got water. A person can live five days without water and six weeks without food, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Think about how much those people get paid to do their jobs, so mindlessly.

LOL! He did his due research...going to the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

I would have been more concerned about CO effects from running the vehicle motor.

What? That is just too funny. That is what happens when lack of education meets lack of experience.

Doesn't say much for VCU...

Don't know as I'd blame VCU. Some people are just too stupid to learn, and have zero common sense.

Someone should ask the guy if the "s" or the "c" is silent in the word Scent. :hysterical:
