View Full Version : 8 Tips That Might Save Your Life

Because of recent abductions in daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation.

It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do:

The elbow is the strongest point on your body.
If you are close enough to use it, do!

2. Learned this from a tourist guide in New Orleans.

If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM.

Toss it away from you....
chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you,
and he will go for the wallet/purse.


3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car,
kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole
and start waving like crazy.
The driver won't see you, but everybody else will.
This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,
eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook,
or making a list, etc.
The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity
for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head,
and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR,
a. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head

Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car.

Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat
they will get the worst of it.

As soon as the car crashes bail out and run.
It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot,
or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat
B..) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C..) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.
If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs.
(Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.
This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control,
The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times;
And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.
Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. Another Safety Point:
Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch
the night before last, and she called the police because it was late
and she thought it was weird.
The police told her" Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door."

He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded
and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone
dropped off a baby.

Wow... my dad is always really paranoid, but now I'm not gonna step outside. I'll live on the computer. And when my family is on vacation, I'll write 10 page long emails to them.

Not really.

But thanks dude! Now I know.

Some of those are very useful, but the last one sounds like an urban legend to me.

I am getting really paranoid now! :(

Well, my mother keeps one of those zappers in her purse and brings it with her wherever she goes. :D Zap Zap!! :D

I should buy one!! Or a mini tesla gun! :D

About the elbow thing, whatever happened to 'KICK HIM IN THE BALLS!?!? :D

14-07-06, 15:55
"Kicking where it counts" is not a sure thing. As a martial artist, I know that it is a small target (no pun intended!) and only works well if the opponent is directly facing you. If he is at a slight angle, you will be kicking his legs/ thighs, not the soft parts.
There is no shame in fighting viciously to save your life or the life of ones you care about. Gouge eyes, smash throats, whatever it takes.
But the general rule is, fight back! Don't make it easy for the attacker.

Surely if you take the elevator then someone could get in and you'll be trapped inside a small elevator? :confused:
