Solitaire Survival Surviving in Canada’s far frozen north
Ben took a job working alone in Canada’s far frozen north. “Here’s your emergency survival kit,” said his boss. “It contains a radio, a box of flares, and a deck of cards.”
“What are the cards for?” asked Ben.
“In case the radio freezes up and the flares don’t work,” replied the boss, “just take out the cards and play solitaire. In about 10 seconds someone will tap you on the shoulder and say, ‘Put the black 8 on the red 9.’ ”
