Whenever you pass by a middle-aged man-about-town grabbing onto rogue telephone wires just so he can feel alive again, make sure to sneak up on him with your blanket/burlap sack from behind. Everyone loves surprises.

Wild dog attack? Just grab the nearest ten-foot bamboo pole. The dog in front will be distracted by the disguise while the dog in back will be distracted by your vulnerable, delicious friend. Run fast! Dogs eat quickly.

Need to light a match in the wind? blocking with your hand is only mildly effective; it's best to increase surface area and make sure the whole thing catches fire. Bonus life hack: third degree burns are great for garnering sympathy.

The water filter one is backwards. it's supposed to get rid of the big things first, then the small.
User avatar #178 to #146 - agentdennis (07/25/2013) [-]
As a pool operator, the water filter one looks almost exactly like the most common of pool filters, the sand filter. Although this will remove the water of debris, germs and bacteria will still be present.

Look at my comment number 150.
#149 to #146 - hellomyfriend (07/25/2013) [-]
well then you would end up with sand in your water

No, you put a cloth in the bottom. I've done this before camping. It's fast and effective, just not against pathogens.
User avatar #152 to #150 - icedragon (07/25/2013) [-]
and then you boil it after filtering!
User avatar #153 to #152 - doodogger (07/25/2013) [-]

the water filtration one is still done about the same way, but crushed up charcoal is usually added as one of the layers as an additional filter

I'm not saying that the one about getting electrocuted is wrong, but what I've been taught as an electrician is to tackle the guy.
Just run up to him, and tackle him away from whatever is shocking him.
That way, he gets away from it, without having to wait for you to figure out how to cut the power.
