How Not to Die: 20 Survival Tips You Must Know...Sort Of

created at: 06/19/2014

Popular Mechanics takes on accidental death, and how to avoid it. Interestingly, the majority of the tips don't presume mountain isolation or post-apocalyptic bug outs, but a variety of outdoor activities, from mowing the lawn to attending a baseball game to drinking too much water. 

So, it's more of an article about surprising ways to do, with a little "how to avoid it" thrown in, rendering the "must know" somewhat tongue-in-cheek. A bit fun facts, a bit practical, and a bit humor. Worth a read:

Some interesting tips in that list but I wouldn't consider them all to be "must know" tips.  Maybe PopMech should have titled the article 20 Good Point Of Reference, Just In Case.


Hell, if one person found every one of those tips to be a relevant must know skill he would give the Most Interesting Man In The World a run for his money.
