10 Life Hack Facts That Could Save Your Life or Someone Else's
We've all been in some very precarious situations and moments in life. Some very hairy life and death moments where quick thinking has helped to save someone's life, or someone else's quick thinking got your life saved. Well here's 10 real life scenarios and what to do in those situations. Knowing these things and what to do in the event of these situations conspiring, could just be the difference between living and dying!
If you're ever shot by a small calibre gun like a small handgun, and the hole in your body is fairly clean, the best thing to use to stem the bleeding is a tampon! Although it might sting like a b**** putting that sucker in their, it's one of the best things to do until you can get to hospital!
If you or someone else you know has been stabbed by a sharp object and that object is still stuck within them. Don't pull it out! The best thing to do is to leave it stuck inside them as this will stop the blood from pouring out and may just save their life until the paramedics can come and take them to hospital.
If you're being attacked and need to strike back in self defense, don't hit them in the torso like in the stomach or chest, this isn't the movies! What you should do is go for the groin or the eyes or even the throat as this will knock the wind out of them and then run screaming as fast and as loud as you can!
If you ever get stuck in a rip tide in the ocean, don't panic! That's the worst thing to do, instead try to remain calm and instead of swimming against the tide, try to swim parallel to it towards the shore. You'll still get pulled out to sea but you'll never be able to out swim a rip tide and may just get noticed before you are swept away and lost to the fishes as food.
If you're ever in the need for help and need to scream out for help, instead of screaming "Someone help me! I'm being mugged". Try to be more specific as to who you are screaming to like Hey you in the white shirt, help me. People are generally stupid and can't always follow instructions unless they're specifically for them!
If your car ever breaks down on a level crossing and a train is coming, don't keep trying to start your car. Even if you do you might not move it in time. Get out of your car and run towards the direction of the oncoming train. If you run in the direction the train is going it's likely you'll get taken out by your own car debris!
If you're driving down the road at some speed and a deer or other large animal jumps out in front of you, the worst thing to do is try and swerve to avoid it. You'll likely still hit it and go off the road and end up killing yourself. In fact the best thing to do is to just keep on going straight on. Plus remember this, most insurers will cover you if you hit a deer but wont if you swerved and hit a tree!
Talking of driving. If you're driving your car and feel a heart attack coming on, or even are choking, get out of your car and try to signal for help. You wont really be able to signal to anyone if you're still inside the car. Especially if you're unconsciously slumped in your seat. But being sprawled over the hood of your car is a sure fire signal something is wrong!
Never walk down the stairs with your hands in your pockets! That is really dumb and listed under the top 100 dumb ways to die! Just like you should never run with scissors. But if you have your hands in your pockets and trip, you wont be able to grab a hold of anything and will likely break your neck!
Just fell in the river with all your clothes on or need to cross one with no life jacket? Use your jeans as a life preserver by tying the legs shut and filling them with air, when they are wet they'll hold a large amount of air that should be just enough and last long enough for you to cross without being swept under.
If you're ever camping out in the woods and come across a bear what should you do? Well don't stop and run as they will just chase you down, catch up with you and maul you to death. Use this rhyme and remember it. If its brown, lay down. If it's black, fight back, if it's white, good night!
