I'm interested in preparing myself for uncommon and dangerous situations that might still potentially pop up unexpectedly in my life. For example, what should I do if someone breaks into my house in the middle of the night? What would it be best to do if you're kidnapped and stuffed into a boot, or if you're lost in the wilderness with little to no equipment or stuck out in deep water with a shark approaching you?
So basically I'm not looking for survival tips for outlandish scenarios, but rather survival tips for situations that might realistically happen to an ordinary person where knowledge of what to do might save your life. Basically like this question
, but without the Armageddon being a factor to worry about.
