Attention: There are thousands upon thousands of tweets on Twitter, texts on cell phones, and e-mails throughout the Internet that post an Amber Alert about a missing 3-year-old girl in (choose the state you reside in), abducted by a man in a silver truck with License #72b381. Why choose the state you live in? Because these Amber Alerts are fake, phony, bogus, a hoax meant only to get the receiver to send the message onward, promoting the hoax. The Amber Alert invariably has your state's name in it (or at least a close, neighboring state) and supposed pertinent information (man, silver truck, license plate #72b381) so as to hook you into its urgency. And a child is missing...
Have at least one gun. Again another subset. Some people might fight me on this one, but guns do work in a variety of horror situations. Granted a gun does nothing for encounters with paranormal beings. But for monsters and psychopaths? A psychiatrist with a revolver did more good than the entire Haddonfield police radio earpieces (Halloween I & II).
Your child is bitten by a snake that might be poisonous. Your first reaction might be to try to suck out the venom with your mouth and/or apply a tourniquet. WRONG! The right response is to simply call airwave radio, or drive to the nearest emergency room. Calling ahead is also a good idea, as anti-venom may need to be flown in if it's not on hand. During the drive, try to minimize any movement of the bitten limb and keep it below heart level.
Sure they're great for the kids, but they're also convenient for you. If you live in a large house, you can use a walkie talkie set to call the kids. Need to call the kids in for dinner? No more yelling out the front door so everyone in the neighborhood knows that dinner is being served at your house. Just simply push the button and tell them to come home. You might feel more comfortable with your child going to his friends house down the street if you can be in constant communication with him. Set check in rules, where your child must contact you every so often via your tetra radio. This gives your child some independence while giving you peace of mind.
Then came 9/11. And intelligence failed again! Not that the Americans did not know that al-Qaeda was a threat. Bill Clinton knew. George Bush jr. knew. But the risk was underestimated, just as it never crossed anyone's mind that Japan could wreak havoc on America.
This is the least severe form of burn. A first degree burn usually involves the outer layer of skin only being damaged. The skin appears red and can be painful to the touch. A prime example of a first degree burn is sunburn. This type of burn can be treated successfully by yourself. Normally a first degree burn would be able to heal within six days.
