My cousin taught me this survival technique:-

How to get water?

  • Choose a plant with large, green leaves.
  • Select a plant that receives a good amount of sun. The heat from the sun will speed the transpiration process.
  • Choose a branch that has a large number of healthy leaves; give it a shake to dislodge any insects or debris that might be on the branch.
  • Place your plastic bag over it. Tie it very tightly; you don't want any water vapor to escape during the process.
  • Make sure that part of the bag hangs lower than the point where you tied the bag to the branch. Water will run collect there.
  • You will want to have several bags up at once, since one branch doesn't provide enough water to live on.

Survive a plane fall;

Take the arch position to maximize friction; it will slow you down and you'll have 1-3 minutes; then pick a landing spot; you can travel horizontally 3 kilometers while falling, so you can direct your flight to more safe places;

  • Forward by pulling your arms slightly back at the shoulders (so that they are not extended forward as much) and straightening (extending) your legs.
  • Backward by extending your arms and bending your knees as though you are trying to touch the back of your head with your heels.
  • Right turns may be accomplished while staying in the arch position by twisting your upper body slightly to the right (dipping your right shoulder), and left turns are performed by dipping the left shoulder.

If you fall through ice; Find the hole!

When speed skating, momentum can make you end up far away from the original break in the ice; Remember this:

  • When the ice is covered with snow: the hole will be darker.
  • Ice without snow: the hole will be lighter.
  • Always look for the contrasting color.
