An interesting new thread has appeared on Reddit. It shares common tips related to the topic of survival, following which can make things much worse. We have chosen the most striking examples.

1. "You don't really need The Interior Ministry denies that missing persons reports are filed on the third day / Interfax wait 24 hours before declaring a person missing" — Inner-English-678

2. "It is dangerous to put wet stones next to the fire (both for cooking and for fencing the fire). After heating up, the stone can explode due to the pressure caused by the rapid evaporation of moisture inside," - GORDON1014

3. "In case of frostbite, you should not rub the skin or try to warm it with hot water. This will only increase the extent of the damage. The simplest and safest method is to gradually warm up with the warmth of another body (or even your own: for example, by removing the palms of your armpits)," — Grungemaster and Daikatoro

4. "It is believed that moss grows not only on the northern side of the tree — in fact, it can be on any side, and it is not worth focusing on it," — dildothegreat87

5. "You should not drink alcohol in the cold in an attempt to keep warm: although it will seem to you that it has become warmer, hypothermia will occur much faster" — Morning_Throbber

6. "Many people think that you can drink liquid from cacti instead of water, but this is not the case. Yes, it will work with the species of Ferocactus Wislysen, but even then in small quantities. The juice of most cacti contains a high concentration of acids and other unpleasant substances that will lead to diarrhea and even more dehydration" — Kraymur

7. "I've heard advice more than once to run away from alligators in a zigzag. But alligators rarely chase prey over long distances, and such a run will simply exhaust you. Run in a straight line, and the alligator will get bored pretty quickly. Yes, they are fast, but they rarely chase people on land, so the chances of survival are quite high." —TchaikenNugget

8. "There is a popular opinion that a leech should either be torn off as soon as it bites you, or sprinkle it with salt so that it lets go. But you can't do that! Tearing them off is about as dangerous as it sounds, but sprinkling salt is much worse. Their whole body is a mucous membrane. The salt makes them very painful, and they vomit before releasing the victim.

As a result, your own blood enters your bloodstream, potentially mixed with parasites or viruses, as well as other human or animal blood. Like tearing, it can also lead to the loss of teeth, which also enter your bloodstream. It goes against our instincts, but the safest way to remove a wild leech is to let it finish what it started. As soon as her stomach is full, she will fall off on her own, and there will be no teeth or other nasty things in your blood," —Legs4daysarmsformins

9. "People often think that trying to get out of a vehicle after an accident is a good idea. But if you are in a serious accident and have sustained significant body damage, it is extremely important not to move. Maximum — if you can, reach for the phone and call the rescue service. You should not try to get out or get comfortable (I'm not talking about critical cases when the car may catch fire). When moving, broken bones can begin to pierce the skin or insides, which threatens complications up to internal bleeding," — Kulous

10. "If you get lost in the desert, don't save water. You don't know how long you'll be in this situation, and trying to stretch out the remaining water will only accelerate dehydration. It is better to drink when you feel thirsty, so you can move longer and keep a clear mind. People found dead in the desert often had flasks and bottles of water, saving which cost them their lives,"— EpicMindvolt
