Family Survival Tips and Tricks

This guest post was written by Dan Chabert, a writer, traveler, and ultramarathon distance runner.

In the face of an emergency such as a natural disaster, rioting, or any other crisis situation, it is always essential that families make plans and preparations for such periods. The first thing you think about in emergency situation will be the safety of your family. This is why it is advisable to make prior arrangements in case of unforeseen circumstances.

In preparing for such situations, it is equally important for the planner to know the right survival supplies to get and to have the necessary survival skills – such as hunting – to be equipped with in order to outlive such periods. It is as a result of this that I’ve decided to come up with this article/guide to show you some survival tips and tricks that should come in handy during such times of crisis.

All members of the family need to be involved in the planning process so that everyone – not including babies anyway – should know what exactly that they are supposed to do in such cases. Many considerations should be taken into account while making such plans. The following should be done in preparation for, and potentially during such emergency situations:

  • Always include every family member in the planning process and ensure to explain everything to everyone as often as possible. You can teach young children things like memorizing their address, their full names, and their parents’ or guardians’ names etc; as this can be very useful in cases when they are separated from you.

A Code [Spies]

May 5th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Pondering life, and doing not much else, I came to invent a code. Since I have no need for these things, I thought I might release it to my readers, as a sort of thank you.

The key to this one is making things as odd as possible. Because we want the message to be utter gibberish. Like a code, but it doesn’t have to mean anything. Switch up, create fake patterns, what ever you want because the actual message content does not matter.

What does matter? The time you sent it.

I’m thinking that each time stamp could stand for a certain message, indicator or other phrase.

What could make this better?

Lies, Liars, and Lying [Lie]

Recently heard a story about purchasing Never Be Lied to Again: How to Get the Truth In 5 Minutes Or Less In Any Conversation Or Situation: David J. Lieberman. I can’t find the original article, but here’s the premise: a woman purchases 15 copies of the book and gives one to each of her closest friends. She never reads the book itself. Why? So that her friends won’t try to lie to her again.
