I posted this earlier but it disappeared. Water filters come with an average number of gallons they can clean. Remember that this number is for clear water. If you’re filtering cloudy, green or any sediment filled water it will shorten the life of the filter by a lot. Try pre filtering the water with a folded tee shirt or cloth. You can also use a soda bottle filled with sand. Remember that water is your number one need in life so protect your filter as much as you can.

It has been revealed that the latest research shows more money is now spent on boob jobs and Viagra than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, the elderly will all have perky tits and massive erections, but absolutely no idea what to do with them.

Best one I’ve heard in a while!

I’ve wondered if drying some of it out would reduce its ability to burn so bad?
We dry stinging nettles and make tea, boil it like spinach, fry it and make chips. Soak it in water for a few weeks and let it go bad, makes a great spray for your garden against all kinds of bad bugs eating on your veggies and grapes. GP
Watch the trees, if their leaves are turned over and show their belly-side, the weather is going to change for the worse.
Watch the birds, if they do not fly too high, there is a low-pressure system and the weather is going bad soon.
Watch the clouds, if you see the thin wispy cirrus clouds, the weather is going to be or get better. GP

snakes make great pets. They don’t bark, they don’t need to be taken out to do their business, as a matter of fact they only do their business like once a month, they only need to be fed every few weeks, and if you forget to check on them they are fine. They are also tasty in a pinch! Seriously, they aren’t slimy and mostly only bite when threatened. Don’t just go hunting to kill them for no reason.
SOUNDS LIKE MY BEST BUDDYS EX-WIFE!!!

1. If you think you're being followed turn right four times. Since you'll get to the same place they shouldn't be following you anymore. If they do, you might be in trouble. Since it's a common warning that you shouldn't go home when you think someone is following you, the smartest is to go to a police station."

2. Buy a plunger and fire extinguisher before you need a plunger or fire extinguisher.
Because fire and shitty situations are no fun at all.

3. If you’re being tied up, puff yourself out as much as possible so it’ll be easier to wiggle out of. Tense muscles, inhale deep and stretch out your arms and legs to make more space.

4. If someone is choking but they are coughing/talking, DO NOT INTERVENE. Let them cough it out. The ability to cough is a sign that air is able to get in and out and that they only have a partial obstruction in their airway. If you try to intervene with the Heimlich or backblows, you could force it out, or you could dislodge the blockage and cause a full obstruction. Obviously, if they're not breathing or coughing then you should definitely administer backblows, just remember to check in between each one incase you partially dislodge the object.

No. More like criminal-eating training. Call it police dog training, military training, bite work... There are formal systems for this, 'ring sport' is one of them. Never even thought of it as dog fights, but I can see where someone would go there. The dogs are never trained to go after other dogs, but they love to bite bad guys. Chomp, chomp, chomp! There are multiple methods, 'ring sport', 'schultzhund', 'mondio'...
We have a dog that was trained like that. He was a little hard to train (according to the trainer) in that he didn’t want to go after the arm or hand. He launched himself at the guys throat and knocked him down.

1. If you’re near a water source, fishing is the most convenient way to find food. Because fish swim toward the wind, you will catch more fish if you cast your bait into the wind while fishing. This will ensure the bait lands in front of the fish rather than behind.

2. Collect Fat Wood

“Fat wood” is actually resin from pine trees. It is effective both as a fire starter and as an insect repellent, so it’s a good thing to collect and have on hand.

3. Don’t Cross River Rapids

Even if you’re a strong swimmer, don’t risk crossing a rapid river. You could get sucked into a strong current and drown. Even if you survive the crossing, you will spend far too much energy in the effort.

4. 16 drops of bleach to treat 1 gallon of water

5. When 1% of the total water weight of a person’s body is lost, the person will feel thirsty.

If your urine is clear, your body has all the water it needs, if it is light yellow, you could drink something. IF it turns dark yellow and goes toward brown, you are just short of drying your organs out an leading to a slow death from dehydration. A muscle which has lost 3% water to dehydration, also loses 10% of its elasticity and 8% of its speed reaction time. Never transport water in a container if you are thirsty, water cools you in summer and heats you in winter. GP

If you have clear colorless urine, it means you aren't eating your vegetables, LOL.

Vitamin C, Vitamin B, chlorophyll, and beta carotene all turn your urine various shades of bright yellow.

Chlorophyll also reduces urine odor.

Right Doc, I will never forget the time someone told the story of one of his Grandkids come rushing into the living room full of family in the Christmas holidays and, just coming back from the toilet, exclaimed in a loud voice: " I want to know who can pee-pee in BLUE???"

1. Don't Give Up
Remember that you can never win a race you don’t run. If you give up, you eliminate 100% of the chances you have of surviving.

2. No Water, No Food
You will need energy but remember that the more you eat, the more thirsty you will become. If you have no water source, eating something could be the very thing that ends it all for you.

3. Breathe Through Your Nose
You use more energy breathing through your mouth than your nose. You also lose moisture faster

4. The boiling point of water lowers, the higher you get above sea level. This means that it takes less time and less energy to boil water at altitude. Cooking food by boiling though will take longer as water boiling at altitude is not as hot as water boiling at sea level.

5. The human body temperature normally stays within a range of about 97.52° – 98.96°F or 36.4° – 37.2°C
If it falls just 2° below that hypothermia will start to set in.

1. During the winter, it is WAY better to be slightly cold than it is to sweat. If you start to sweat, you can go hypothermic way faster.

2. You can squeeze relatively safe water out of moss. Obviously you should still boil it and and it’s going to have some dirt but it way better than drinking out of a steam or puddle.

3. If you accidentally disturb a bee hive or wasp nest and are being swarmed, DO NOT run for water. It seems intuitive that jumping in water will keep the bees off you, but actually they will wait for you to resurface and resume stinging you. Instead, run as fast and as far away as you can. Bees/wasps are territorial and will not easily leave their home range. So once you leave their comfort zone, you're pretty much safe.

4. If you don't know for sure what you're eating:

Most animals are safe to eat. Most plants will make you sick.

clearly hundreds of exceptions. But if you know nothing, steer toward killing bambi before eating leaves.

Also, a diet of solely rabbit will make you stupid and dead. Something apparently seriously lacking in thr nutrition provided. This is called protein poisoning (or sometimes rabbit poisoning). Rabbits are almost entirely lean, with very, very low fat content, and your body can't function without fat.

5. Anything standing it's ground and being loud just wants you to leave. If you don't they will attack. When they are relatively quiet they have already decided to attack.

This goes for humans too



Bonus: Don't f*ck with garage door springs.

As you stated "Don't eat snow if you if you are thirsty". It will cool your core. Put the snow in a container, even a plastic bag, and put it under your coat. I will warm and thaw without cooling your core. As for point 3.
(may have posted before) "If something gets stuck in you don't pull it out". Father and I were in a weapons museum. We were looking at a truly wicked bayonet. It had large shark fin like barbs that leaned in opposite
directions. 1 right,1 left for the entire length. I indicated that I thought such a device would be difficult to remove. Dad replied. "He'll help you, all he can".
