Just trying to help out Bassists here:
Read the whole thing, and LIVE!
the hardest part for most of them is keeping a cool head when it happens to you.
I've known full well for a long time what to do in event of a rip current, but when it happened to me I tried fighting it for several minutes before remembering. that day easily could have went another way.
Classic piffle piece.
Most of it could be summarised by "stay indoors", but the most "dangerous" activity is sitting all day.
Trying to figure out why they put avoiding bear attacks at #1, when three to five people a year are killed by bears, while hypothermia, which kills over 1000 per year, is down at #11.
I remember #6 from when I learned whitewater canoeing as a kid - there we called it a "hole," and it happens with sudden natural water drops as well as at dams. Solution was the same - swim down and away, don't try to swim up against the current.
Not dying, thus far, has been the easy part.
Except to people with no brains.
These tips are complete 'no-brainers'. They might just as well have said "do not drink weed-killer".
Unfortunately though, some people are just too plain stupid NOT to tempt fate (or to put it more precisely, the laws of physics combined with statistical probability)
True...and there's plenty of them
Maybe they should wear a helmet?
Hey! Where did the post I posted that response to go? Now mine looks like a non sequitur.
And, yes, some people should wear helmets to go outside.
Never operate a chainsaw while driving an Ford Fiesta on a crowded city street.
If you wanna do stupid things, never do them alone. Have someone there with brains you can reason with, or .....
Assess the dangers and have a contingency plan.
...ask yourself ....
"What would happen to me if this went wrong?"
Then ask yourself...
"How could I minimize or avoid this risk?"
If the majority of people had that sort of critical thinking, we wouldn't have Darwin Awards or dirty jokes.
My big brother wanted to be a stuntman, and he talked me into everything he did!! I've repeated those two questions in my head thousands of times.... which is probably why I'm still alive.
I wanted to be a stuntman myself. Its a [del]miracle[/del] fortunate reality Ive never broken a bone.
Did I see a chainsaw in that car?
