Martini Making as a Survival Strategy

There was a story of an Air Force pilot who habitually carried a small bottle of gin and vermouth, a jar of olives, a mixing spoon, and a large metal cup in his survival kit.

His co-pilot asked him, "How would making a Martini aid him in survival?"

The pilot's response was pretty straightforward:  "If I ever crash and get lost in the jungle, I'll just sit down and start to make a Martini.  If figure that if I were to do that, then someone will come out of the bush and say, 'That's no way to make a Martini.'"

Martini drinkers are typically opinionated on how to make one.  They are hard to please.
