Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

I recall in uni reading about a ship of pirates (yes, in the Caribbean, this story published pre-1994, so nothing about the movies) that landed on a small island with only a ton (who knows how many tons) of sugar destined for America, and plenty of Carribean-distilled barrels of rum. After about a week of ONLY eating sugar and drinking rum, over half the crew had died. Science shows us that a water-only fast is survivable for over a month! (Now, maybe they had no water to drink, and heat stroke is dangerous; in any event, the white sugar and rum appear to have contributed to if not outright caused their deaths).
