Advice When Swallowed By A Giant Fish

March 14, 2010

I preached on Jonah 2 Sunday morning, and as I was getting ready I found this on a BBC website. I didn’t all fit in with the sermon, but I thought I would include it on the blog. Don’t say this blog never gave you any practical information.

Advice for Swallowees from the BBC Website

Once inside, sit tight and try not to touch anything if at all possible. Escape from the belly of a whale, aside from simple survival, may be far more difficult as the majority of whales – especially the Baleen whales that rely on sieving minuscule marine life forms for their diet – have complex digestive systems. There is also the constant intake of seawater that results from their feeding processes. Unless someone is looking for you, or you have a very large cutting implement and a strong stomach, you may have to be satisfied with simply surviving until starvation takes you or good fortune saves the day.

If all else fails you might consider using pepper or a small fire to smoke your way out.

    This is funny stuff. Hope the work is going well, and I am looking forward to seeing you again. Are you going to be in Memphis during June 3 to 10th.
