You might think you know how to survive if you end up stranded in the wild, but those tips you read on the internet might just make things worse!
Some tips seem too good to be true, and they are. Others are ingrained enough to be common knowledge, except they’re wrong.

    A lot of beaches in Australia have (or had, I last remember seeing them as a teenager) big bottles of vinegar in a wooden box at the entrances to beaches incase of jelly fish stings. (I feel like that sentence is grammatically incorrect but I'm too tired to think about it too much.)

    Instead of drinking urine when you run out of water, use it before your water runs out. As long as it isn't brown or very yellow, you can use it to supplement your water, this way you'll increase the amount of time your rations will last

    Like everything involving survival, it depends on the situation. Alcohol won't keep your core warm, but it will help keep your limbs warmer and possibly prevent frostbite. So if you have a big ole warm jacket but thin gloves, alcohol would help because the issue is your hands not your body temperature (assuming you need to use your hands and can't just keep them in your pockets). Also, the biggest issue with alcohol is it reduces shivering, which your body does to stay warm.

    *NOT A MYTH* [I learned it from other sources, mainly Les Stroud - aka Survivorman] *Regarding cactus (and other plant matter) and pee as sources of water* - *one* of the ways to make use of it, without the ick and risk [and the choice I would use in a crisis] - if you have some gear. You need a container (bowl is best, and two is better - but work with what you got) - and a plastic bag. You can sometimes scavenge these common trash items. Dig a hole you can "tent" the plastic bag over using stones around the edges, and about 8 to 12 inches deep. If you have a second bowl, mash up the cactus goop as much as possible. If pee is your only source, make mud with it. Spread the mud or goop around the hole, place your cup in the center, the bag over the hole, and place a large enough stone in the middle to cause the bag to droop. Then comes the hard part, waiting... The moisture in the hole will cause condensate to form on the plastic bag, which runs down to the center stone, and drips into the cup. Because it is condensate, most of the harmful stuff is left behind and you get fresh(er) water. It is slow, and maddening to wait for - but, worth it to stay alive. Works best on an overnight plan. This also works for any old moist ground, or just the bag trick to collect morning dew, with no running water available.

    You are just embarrassing yourself with that bit about the moss on the tree. Anyone who has done a lot of hiking an camping knows how this works. On VERTICAL tree trunks, the sun will only ever hit the side of the trunk facing south. This dries out and disinfects that side of the tree. The other side will see light, but not direct light. So it will be spared the sterilizing UV rays. Therefore it will be a more hospitable place for bacteria, fungi, and algae. Algae and fungi together comprise lichen, which on decomposition makes a nice habitat for moss. So since your opinion on this is trash, I assume the rest is nonsense you googled.

    Actually, cooling down from eating snow is not the most dangerous part. It's dehydration. The body will burn more water while warming it up than it gets in return. Try eating ice cubes instead of drinking water and you will see. You just get more thirsty. If you freeze to death, eating snow most probably did not change the outcome.

    With all the comments, sure it's been mentioned anyway, but oh well. Have experience with jellyfish stings - lifeguard at his hut gave me a can of meat tenderizer (made from papaya) - put it on the stings and it worked AMAZINGLY. No more pain and the welts didn't stick around for long either. I've heard that vinegar works as well, but easier to keep a spice can of dry meat tenderizer than a bottle of vinegar in a "oh sh*t" kit.

    The drinking your pee myth is so common but when you actually stop to think about it, it definitely makes no sense. Like the whole reason it’s coming out of you is your body has extracted the useful stuff this is the useless leftovers essentially. Why would that be beneficial to force back into you

    1. Chris Rudolf

      Because the body is no 100% effective nutritient and liquid extracting machine, otherwise you would sneeze out the toxins as little specs of dust :-). The body uses a whole lot of useful liquid to flush out those toxins. Kinda similar to a toilet flushing your waste down with a big gush of drinking water. Is it healthy to drink your own urine? Certainly not. Does it help as a desperate short term measure to slow down dehydration? Actually yes. It doesn't help much, but it is better than nothing.

    This is the only source I've ever come across that says binding a snake bite is a bad idea Just for everyone reading this, If you are ever bitten by a snake or a venomous spider, you NEED to bind the bite all the way to the top of the appendage and avoid moving it. It slows the movement of the venom through your lymphatic system.

    Advice like "see a doctor" and "go to a hospital" is totally useless for all but the stupidest of people, because anyone bitten by a snake or with frostbite is already going to try to do that. The advice that would be more useful is what is the next best thing to do when the nearest medical professional is many hours or days away.

    This reminds me of when I and my dad were walking the dogs, we got into an argument, and I almost ran away. We like going into very nature-like areas to walk the dogs, so it was pretty easy. My dad told me to stay very far behind him, so I just walked into the wilderness. My plan was to just keep walking, and hopefully, soon find a long and thick stick to protect myself with. Then I got to thinking, "How am I going to survive with no food?". The first and only thing that came to mind was grass. There was certainly a lot of it, and I had seen the dogs eat it before, and nothing bad happened. Therefore, I figured grass was safe to eat. I picked a blade of grass, bit off a tiny bit, and what do you know? It tasted good. My worries were gone. Then, I heard my name and figured it was my dad, so I didn't turn around. I just ignored him, but then I figured out that the only way to stop the call was to turn around and answer. Now you might be thinking, "How did he find you if you had run away?" There's a very simple explanation. There were no trees to hide behind. Only hills, and just running until I got down one wouldn't be very smart because it would dehydrate me very easily. Anyway, I answered my dad and that's probably why I lived to tell the tale. So lesson learned, don't run away from your parents. If you already have, then definitely go back. If you are still running, then good luck.

    But what if I'm stuck on an airplane in the middle of the ocean, and some crazy-ass mob boss REALLY wants me dead and fills the plane with snakes?!

    Plus alcohol dehydrates you. Not so good in a survival situation.

    How are you going to go to your nearest hospital when you're in a real survival situation? I think it would be more helpful to list things that would be more helpful. The reason why it's listed as a helpful option is that they're assuming you're already in a situation where antivenom is not an option. So the question becomes: "Is it better than doing nothing at all, or no?" Also "that's not going to help. Nobody's going to like that." Sorry, but again, it's significantly more helpful than literally nothing, right? What if some snake escaped its zoo enclosure and you noted it had a bunch of red and black bands. Well, that could be a king snake, or a coral snake and almost no description you can give is going to be helpful.

    In Australia when bitten you stay still sit down and don’t move call and ambulance. This idea of making your way to the hospital is stupid. If you’re out bush maybe but if you are in cellular range call the ambos don’t go driving looking for a hospital

      @ForArts - And as we are getting linguistic, "venom" comes (via Old French) from Latin venenum meaning potion and by extension poison/venom. Almost exactly the same as "poison", from Latin potio (potion) via French. Virus also comes from Latin but directly via science nerds hocus-pocusing the world with their Latin "wisdom" of old times. It had many meanings, including bitterness, strong scent, semen, etc. but one of the meanings came to be that of poison/venom. Know your etymologies, and in this sense Wikitionary is (with due caution) your friend. I say "with due caution" because it seems to me that virus almost certainly comes from vir = man and not the pseudo-Indoeuropean *wisós they claim it form. But whatever...

      @ForArts - In my language both are called venom (veneno), poison is French. English has no native word for either so... stop pretending you can be arrogant about this. BTW, virus also means "venom" or "poison"... in Latin. Of course I don't discern between poison and venom and I don't see why should that be an issue when you risk being stinged at by a scorpion or wasp before you can think on eating them even. Know your food, don't eat random bugs, mushrooms or meat from industrial farms.

      @Luis Aldamiz "Venom are a mixture of proteins and proteins usually get digested in the stomach rendering the venom harmless. " Please stop talking when you dont even know the difference between poison and venom.

    I got hypothermia once while trying to jumpstart my car's dead battery on a -30 degree F wisconsin night. It was so weird. First, I stopped shivering, and the cold didn't feel so awful anymore. Then my brain wasn't working right - I got tired and thought it would be nice to lay down between the cars for a nap. When I realized that was illogical and that I was probably suffering from hypothermia, I went inside to warm up. It took a really long time and I swear I was cold for the rest of the week, but ho boy am I glad I didn't hop in the shower and go into shock. I learned my lesson - now, I listen to my body and meet its needs even if I feel like I'm in a hurry. Don't need to die over a dead battery.

    Honestly, urine can be drunk for longer than 1 or 2 days 🙄, check out stories of people surviving at sea by drinking their urine. Dealing with some side effects long term is better than dieing and strugglign cause of lack of water in the short term. Just remember, if you can, not to eat meat or crappy foods for a while before drinking it, cause they will turn it horrible.

    Blood flows 3 feet for every second. That’s another reason not to try and suck venom out. I know personally... I have bitten by a cobalt blue tarantula, an usambara (OBT) tarantula. And an Indian ornamental tarantula. Each one those tarantulas affected me differently. Being bitten feels like someone shoved an flaming hot spike into my finger.

    I'm from the Pacific Northwest. Moss grows on every side of trees. I remember hearing that survival trick to follow the directions of the moss, and I remember laughing. You'd just go in circles, up here!
