Survival Tips

I came across this recently and thought it was pretty damn funny: http://www.27bslash6.com/lost.html. It's a list of survival tips that will be very useful for all members of NSE trips to have memorized and practiced well.

An example from the indispensable list:
Survival Tip #1
If you have water with you, drink it all immediately. There is a good chance you will be rescued before long so it is pointless being dehydrated. If you do run out of water, the trick to finding more in the wilderness is to remember that water always flows downhill. Find a hill and wait at the bottom. I read somewhere that if there is no water available, you can drink your own urine so I always take a two litre bottle of it wherever I go just in case.
