Suggested correction: It's possible that Nando continued shaving (offscreen) while they were living at the plane, but gave it up (or left his razor behind) during the trek out of the mountains. In real life, some of the survivors did shave while in the mountains.

Factual error: Most of the time the boys have no visible breaths, even though they're in a freezing climate.

Question: What does Cannessa mean when he says "I had no premonition. So much for ESP,"?

Answer: ESP stands for Extra Sensory Perception, the ability to see into the future or predict it in the form of a premonition. He means that whatever happened, he literally didn't see it coming.
