This is a question Desperate Times

Stranded in a hotel in an African war zone with no internet access for two weeks, I was forced to resort to desperate measures. Possessing only my passport and the clothes I stood up in; and the warning "You can catch it shaking hands with a vicar out there" ringing in my ears, I had to draw my own porn in order to preserve my sanity.

Alas, it all came out looking like Coronation Street's Audrey Roberts, but, as they say, any port in a storm.

What have you done in times of great desperation?

Legless' cookbook
Legless reminds me of a story - possibly apocryphal - of a student who only knew how to boil eggs. For his first term, he lived on nothing but boiled eggs - about a dozen a day.

By term 2, his smell was unbearable. So someone showed him how to boil a carrot. For the second term, he lived on eggs and carrots.

In my time as a halls supervisor, I have come across overseas students from, er, more mysogynist areas of the world who had no idea of how even to make toast, because that was woman's work.

How can you not know how to boil something?
You put it in boiling water, and poke it every now and again to see if it's attained the texture you want.

Plus, couldn't he have bought breads and made sammiches? A four year old can do that. In fact, I could name loads of foods that require no cooking skills beyond setting something up and forgetting about it. And that's not even counting things like tins of pre-made soup.

Roffle at toast guy. How did he think it was made?

Or Macclesfield... just listen to the Macc Lads
Incidentally I met one of the Macc Lads (Stez) on Saturday night. In a pub (naturally). In Rothbury, Northumberland (not so naturally).

He seemed very nice, and me and Tourettes joined in with choruses from romantic love ditties...
