Maybe you’ve been wondering why the word “prepare” is floating like a looming threat in the top right hand corner of the page.
Let me enlighten you: fear mongering.
It is a tactic I have been using to subliminally tell you that you need to be ready, for anything.
Around every corner lies something that will kill you if you let it:
- Food– choking
- Taking a shower– slipping on the floor and a) bashing your head b) accidentally slicing a major artery with your razor.
- Driving– don’t even get me started.
- Sleeping– you are even more vulnerable than usual mentally and physically.
- Getting dressed– you’re putting a shirt on, you trip and fall as your shirt hooks on something above you. You’re found, partially clothed, strangled by your own shirt.
I guess what I’m trying to get at is that survival is closely to linked being prepared for anything. So I advise you to participate in weekly drills.
For instance, one time I kidnapped my friend and stuck him in the back of my trunk just so he could work out how he would get out of it in a real life situation.
I’m a good friend but I can’t kidnap everyone, so, do yourself a favor and spend a half hour each week walking through some simple survival scenarios.
