Wondering About Wandering

Why are there so many cartoons about a guy crawling through the desert? How many times has this actually happened? More to the point, how did these guys get there? If their car broke down and they left the road to crawl through the desert, they deserve to die. This is natural selection at work; the species gets stronger if people this stupid do not live long enough to reproduce.

Did their plane go down in the desert? If so, they should’ve stayed with the wreckage because a search party will be looking for it. Did they go for a hike and get lost? Again, they deserve what they get. Who hikes in the desert without enough water, a map and a compass (or GPS)?

The only legitimate scenario I can think of is if these guys got drunk at a frat party, passed out, and woke up 100 miles from anywhere. Here, too, though, people who pass out at frat parties probably deserve whatever they get.
