Worst-case Scenarios: Extreme Survival
It’s been a while since we’ve written a survival post. To be honest, it’s been a while since we’ve written any post, but that’s the price we pay when working for the man.
Survival situations are essentially wort-case scenarios. How you play them out is often times a matter of life and death. A site called Worst-Case Scenarios provides step-by-step, how-to’s for everything from fighting off a shark to landing a plane.
So you thought bopping a shark on the nose was your best bet? Wrong – quickly and repeatedly jab it in the gills or eyes – use your dismembered leg if you have to, but man keep fighting! If you find yourself in a position where you need to land a plane, the first step is to “…push, pull, carry, or drag the pilot out of the pilot’s seat.”*
A Cardinal Rule in survival situations is to not panic. The more prepared you are, the less likely it is that you’ll panic in one of those worst-case scenarios. That includes jumping 5 stories from a building into a dumpster or how to wrestle free from an alligator.
* Please note that the pilot should already be incapacitated.
