    He said: "Don´t go with the herd." Really good advice.

    So you can avoid people trampling each other to death in mass panic, as unfortunately it has happened many times in the history of mankind...

    I have lots of rolls of coins lying around in my house 💩. With blows, force=mass x acceleration. The rule “Punch hard, punch fast, but punch first” is better info than grabbing a roll of coins.

    Every restaurant kitchen has a secondary exit. Also, in malls and strip malls most stores have a back stockroom with a rear exit where they receive shipments. If you are in a mall and there is gunfire and you aren't very close to a safe exit, go into the closest store and ask a clerk if there's a shipping and receiving exit in back,
    and then gtfo.

    Interesting, that ceramic tile is going to feel great as it shatters the bullet and "displaces" it into your throat and face. An attacker that waits for you to tape up some "body armor" and grab a handful of salt isn't something to worry about. Clown.

    When I was educating myself on self awareness, I was over thinking it to a certain extent that my relatives said I was getting paranoid, but eventually it became a very useful and interesting habit. On the other hand, this video is focused on extreme situations (Thanks), but we also need to be aware of simple things, example: if you're walking close to a baseball camp, it could happen that a lost ball is coming your way: be prepare to avoid a ball instead of asking who threw the ball and why. Another example: you're using scissors while watching a movie and have to go to the washroom, then leave the scissors on the table and walk without any objects on your hands in case you fall, for not to hurt yourself. Scissors also have the characteristic to get stuck easily on your fingers if you fall, and might even cause a fracture on any finger if this happens.
