If you happen to someday find yourself on a sinking boat, and it goes underwater and you’re somehow able to get free, beware. Once the air neutralizes, if you’re far down enough, water pressure will kill you, and collapse your lungs.

To avoid this, scream all the way to the top. No joke. While you swim up, scream. It’ll keep the pressure from killing you.

 

When you see someone whose neck was slashed/cut and is bleeding out profusely, reach for his carotid artery and then pinch it so he’d stop bleeding out.

 

Actual fires spread shockingly fast. We all like to play “What’s the one thing you’d grab if your house was on fire?” but the real right answer is that if it’s not alive, you should leave it and get the hell out. People tend to imagine a fire burning on the floor in a corner somewhere, but the reality is often that it’s running across the ceiling and circling around the walls. Just get out.

If you’ve gone two and a half or more days without water, and you have to choose between drinking water without any way to sanitize it or not drinking water, drink the water. If you don’t, you’ll definitely die soon. Most of the diseases you can get from bad water take a couple days to set in, which gives you more time to find help.

 

If you ever find yourself caught in a riptide, swim PARALLEL to the shoreline until you get out of the riptide. Swimming directly back to the shore while caught in one won’t get you anywhere and it’ll only exhaust you, making it extremely dangerous to do so.

 

You CAN do the heimlich maneuver on yourself. Seriously, think about how often you eat or snack when you’re by yourself – even if someone is in another room, if you’re choking you cannot talk or scream.

 

If a friend of yours has fallen through ice into a frozen body of water and you would like to save them, lie down on the ice and crawl out to them, DO NOT walk out to them standing up. This maximizes your surface area and lessens the likelyhood that you will fall through the ice as well, getting you both [email protected]#ked.

 

Close your bedroom door at night. The amount of damage done to a room with a closed door by a fire is significantly less than one with an open door… you may have a chance to escape.

FAST. Face, arms, speech, time.

It’s a way to spot a stroke.

Face: If you’ve got an uneven smile or a part of your face is drooping.

Arms: if you raise your arms and one of them slumps or cant be raised as high.

Speech: slurred or unintelligible speech

Time: is of the essence. Call 911 immediately.

 

If you’ve been stabbed and the weapon is left in your body, do not remove it.

 

Learn to swim. You don’t have to be Michael Phelps racing a shark. Just learn the basics.

 

In a crisis situation, people run for the door they came in from. When the shooter walks into the restaurant, run for the kitchen. There’s always an exit through the kitchen, and very few people will think to run there. Plus if you’re not armed, a kitchen is full of killer cutlery to defend yourself with.

 

If the accelerator in your car gets stuck and you cannot stop, shift your car into neutral.

 

In a kidnapping situation where the person is trying to get you to force you to go somewhere (somewhere secluded or into a vehicle) even if they have a weapon, always always fight to not go with them and run.

If they’re trying to get somewhere private they are planning to do something very bad to you that requires privacy. It’s better to be stabbed or shot at in a public place where people can hear you rather than in a secluded place. Usually making a lot of noise and screaming will scare most offenders off.

 

If you ever come into contact with a gorilla (especially a male), stay low and quiet, and no sudden moves. Don’t look them in the eyes either. They take loud noises and movement as a challenge and they’ll crush you like a soda can.

 

This is the way it was taught to me. Turning into a skid means the difference of going into a ditch, and going into a ditch upside down.

 

3 minutes without air. 3 days without water. 3 weeks without food.

 

Mixing bleach with ammonia — both of which are common household cleaning products — can release deadly chlorine gas. Basically, don’t mix household cleaners unless you are 100% sure of what you are doing.

 

In an emergency situation if you need help for yourself or someone else, don’t just yell “HELP” or “CALL 911”. Use specifics, instead say something like “You in the blue shirt, help”. Unless called out personally people have a tendency to walk on by, assuming someone else will help. Using a personal detail gets them involved.

 

Always wait a second after the light turns green before moving into an intersection. Even if the light turns green while you’re still in motion.

It is against all health and safety regulations if a kitchen has only one entry/exit point

#15
just turn the car off, unless you have one of those stupid "futuristic" cars with Engine Start/Stop button that cannot be used while vehicle is moving

#1 BS how can free divers go into depths of 100m+ if that was true? the lung gets compressed rly rly hard but thats all...
btw IF u find urself in such a situation use a breathing technique l(like wim hof) to fill ur blood with oxygen, if u do it properly even w/o training u can hold ur breath for minutes. when u have enough oxygen in ur blood the urge to breath is gone and u can be quite relaxed and save even more time through that.
peace
