25 Survival Myths That Hurt More Than Help

Situational Skills Vs Survival Myths

There are situational skills that may save your life, if you know what you’re doing. There are also “common knowledge” reactions that may do more harm than good. The folks at list25 call them survival myths.

Grizzly Bear Myths
What are they? Well, survival is more than knowing what to do. Don’t be foolish and use common sense. The best way to survive a deadly scenario is to not get yourself into a deadly scenario. Survival is about prevention as well as a skill set.

This “myth list” include:

  • What to drink (think urine, cactus, alcohol)
  • What to do when impaled
  • How to use tourniquets
  • Moss and the North side
  • Doorways and earthquakes
  • Boiling water
  • Eating snow
  • “Here comes a bear!” (Well, is it black or a grizzly?)

Penetrating Power Of The Arrow

This 2½ minute clip titled the “Silent Warriors” is from an episode of the US Army series “The Big Picture.” It discusses the potential superiority of the bow and arrow in certain tactical situations including:

  • accuracy and extremely powerful and penetrating strikes,
  • “swift silence” over long distances, and
  • not revealing position by muzzle flash or smoke.

A “penetration” challenge test against other small arms projectiles is set up at the firing range.
