    Under certain conditions, you would actually want to eat snow. It can rob your body of even more heat if you spend a ton of time trying to light a fire. Yes it can affect you in the long run but if youre facing severe dehydration, youll live longer if yoou eat a bit of snow

    Actually playing dead doesn't entirely work on black bears either because they'll still eat you. Brown bears and about half of the other predators will leave you alone based on if they're looking for food or just protecting territory

    HOLY SHIT YOU'RE GETTING PEOPLE KILLED WITH THIS ADVICE!! The watch/sun trick ONLY works if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning the other HALF of the globe you have just sent to their doom... Defibrillators DO WORK!! This is EXACTLY why they are used in hospitals AROUND THE WORLD EVERY DAY with great success! And in EMERGENCIES of life or death, please DO DRINK YOUR PEE, and for that matter FIND A CACTUS! You're an idiot if you think dying is the option over small efforts at saving your life. Of course, this last one is if life or death... your pee for a while will help, many cactus are perfectly fine, and if you choose bad advice over a possible tummy ache, boo you just died.

    EMT, the don't go to sleep shit is real, we don't ask it because it will keep them alive longer, we ask it so we can communicate and monitor their condition better. It's easier to learn that they cant feel their legs (probably a severed spinal cord) from their mouth than have to go through the protocols to protect against something that already happened.

    6:10 Wouldn't better survival advice for surviving an elevator falling at free fall be, not even trying to survive because regardless of the actual fall itself, going into shock will most likely be fatal?

  • Harry Burgan Jr.

    3:56 I've never heard anyone say to do that but given the stupidity of a large percentage of the human race, it's not that hard to believe that there have been people who have advised to do that. However, I'm sure your advice will work with no basement option, but isn't covering your head in a basement with no windows, far and away the most safe thing to do besides heading to a shelter?

    in the earthquake areas it tends to be common practice to have some really sturdy and reinforced walls, so if the area you are in is likely to have earthquakes staying near a wall/in a door frame might actually save you...
    also if the table you are hiding under is in the middle of the room you might as well just stay put
    so as long as you are close to the wall you are safer

    On the moss one, you can just use the fact that the sun goes from East to West. If it's the morning, just find where the sun is (without looking directly at it) and that's towards the East.
    Maybe not, though. I sort of made that up, but it's logical. Moreso than north moss.

    Maybe this video is supposed to be ironic or sarcastic, but please guys the first survival tip is to NOT take survival tips from this kind of videos, do your research, please. You should better trust your local civil protection services. And Cracked, whether you are or not trying to get people to follow these pieces of advice, shame on you, some of these tips could get people killed. Kids actually got killed last year during an earthquake in my city because videos told them to get under a table was better than exiting the building.

  • Grace Lozada
    Grace Lozada Month ago

    Ok, it is ironic, because in the earthquake case they are actually telling you to not follow good advise and replacing it with advise that will get you killed.
    Unless you live in a house made of wood, meaning most everyone outside the US, you SHOULD NOT use a table to protect yourself from an earthquake. Actually, the only way to protect yourself is to exit the building. But if you can't exit, you can go to the least dangerous places in case of the building collapsing, which are a door frame (there are usually reinforcements around it), near a column or beam, or to the top of the building. Also, stay away from anything electrical or any gas installations (your dryer, stove, water heater, etc.)

    Play dead? You crazy son of human.I think it's you trying to get people killed. Play dead? Nah wha yu wanna du is dive headlong directly into their mouth. Du this as fass as yu can so that when it bites it only gets feet (that way yu go headlong other wise it gets yo upper body) (& yes I kno..headlong hmhm). Now that you in their mouth with your good half start ripping out is't insides. Just go to work like your life depends on it.

  • Knut Masse

    Playing dead makes you ample prey for several sharks, chop the gills the front of the nostril or the eyes as a last resort it's painful but most sharks won't need them to track and kill you. For moss it depends on the moss and environment. Lightning is searching for ground no matter what you do do not take your shoes off or make direct contact with the ground you will boil alive. Cactus if it's clear your do not fear, foggy or colored walk away. Gunshot or knife, take your shirt off press and wrap it into your wound, dont remove anything else. Keep them awake for continuous feed back and consistent motivation of the victim, only let them sleep when your certain they are no longer a class 1. Finally and most importantly if it's safe for your hand put something in the poor fuckers mouth, you can choke on your tongue or worse and far more commonly bite a chunk out and choke on that or drown in your own blood.

  • Dragunov Bushcraft
    Dragunov Bushcraft Month ago

    On point with nearly everything here! Bravo! However, during an earthquake, the safest place is OUTside, away from anything that can fall on you. Tables aren't strong enough to stop a collapsing roof from squashing you.
    Physics: If a roof comes down at ANY other angle, other than straight down, it will grind across the top of a table as it collapses, thus breaking the tables legs, and turning you into a meat pate' as it smears your body on the floor. Safest place is GENERALLY in your back yard, AWAY from things that can fall on you.

    Have you actually checked out any of the things you say here? One of the most important things to do if someone is having an epileptic attack IS TO MAKE SURE THEY DON'T CHOKE ON THEIR TONGUE! If they have the attack, if you must, put your hand into their mouth and fucking drag it out.

  • Moose0fNorway
    Moose0fNorway Month ago

    If someone has had any sort of head injury, or any other injury where the paramedics will show up, DON'T FUCKING GO TO SLEEP.
    1: If it's a head injury, there's much information to be gained of what parts of the brain that has suffered trauma from that patient by talking to them. And they might actually get some permanent\worse traumas by falling asleep.
    2: The paramedics generally wants to talk to the patient, because no one knows better what's wrong with them better than the patient. What could you have eaten to cause the injury, what drugs have you taken, what did you touch, what bit you etc. etc.
    So no, don't fucking let that person fall asleep.

    You are NOT better off pulling over, buckling your seatbelt, and covering your head. When the tornado picks up your car and throws it, you will be crushed. The best advice, and this is from NOAA, is to get out of your car, find a ditch or low area, lie flat, and cover your head.

  • Grace Foskett

    Some of the advice you give is also bad. If in an elevator plumiting you shold stand and bend your knees. This is so your tibia will push trough your knees absorbing a lot of the damage. Also playing dead does not work on sharks as they generaly take bites of things because they are curious and not because they want to hunt you. This is why they eat all of the crap on the botom of the sea. Therefore swiming away is the best option.

    I'd rather risk a chance if infection from someone's mouth bacteria than snake venom in my veins. Speaking of which, snakes produce venom not poison, so someone that accidentally drinks some venom when doing that will be fine because it was to be injected to be harmful, not digested, digesting venom is virtually harmless.

    listen dude their is a lot of things you said will get people killed a defibrillator restarts a humans heart use it on a person with a pulse you give them 2 beats and their heart fails and they suffer a heart attack and NEVER let someone fall asleep you have no clue if they got a head injury or some kind of injury and also yes lie down in a elevator but if you dont cover your head you will probably suffer from a head injury and that shit with the snake its VENOM swoling it will do nothing but still dont do that because swolling someones blood could give you other issues
