Speaking of fire, these could be dangerous...

That's pretty interesting.

Here's a link to the manufacturer's site:

The literature says that if the striker on the box they come in gets wet, it won't light them.

Maybe that's why some come with extra strikers.

It just seems odd that they can make matches that burn when wet; but, can't make strikers that work when wet.

Yeah, with matches a wet striker wets the match head and everything goes to hell, but these fuckers burn underwater?

Handy, and deadly!

If you are going off the beaten path, or even if you're not, know how to fall with the least damage.

That illustration is not particularly well done. Figure 3 says to bring the arms to the side of the body; but, doesn't mention that the forearms, wrists and hands should be brought towards the midline of the body to avoid injury. This is depicted in Figure 4 (on the down side) and should have been stated in the text. It should also have stated that the lower arms can be brought toward the midline of the body down low to the groin; or, up high to protect the head (preferred).

The lower arms should be brought up to protect the head in most cases. Sometimes they have to be in a low position such as pulling down on the risers and flaring a rectangular parachute before doing a parachute landing fall (PLF), controlling a rope through a rappelling/climbing harness, holding attached gear out of the way so as not to land on it...etc.

The technique is applicable to many situations, not just the ones mentioned. It is perhaps best known in parachuting application. Below are a couple of vids (the 2nd a 20 sec. excerpt) and a Wiki article that demonstrates the technique applied as a PLF. If it'll work there, it'll work just about anywhere:




Quote:
distribute the landing shock sequentially along five points of body contact with the ground:

1. the balls of the feet
2. the side of the calf
3. the side of the thigh
4. the side of the hip, or buttocks
5. the side of the back (latissimus dorsi muscle)

If I fall it will be because I tripped or fainted, not climbing anything higher than a bar stool.
I'm certainly not jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. Only crazy people do that.
